Yule presents

It is December 1 and time for me to think about presents. As a pagan, I celebrate midwinter, or Yule, as a religious festival rather than Christmas, but I think it is wonderful that pretty much every culture has some sort of celebration at this time of year.

Here are a few items on my personal wish list:

This gorgeous hand-crafted dress is my favourite in a range made by a lovely witch called Hazel and sold through her eBay shop, Wytch-Haze-Medieval-Designs.

It is made in a rich black crushed velvet and is a really flattering style.

Each gown Hazel makes is a bespoke, one-off original, so you know you will never bump into another witch wearing the same robe. This dress costs £100, which I think is very reasonable.

Raw Gaia is a range of living skin care products made using only cold-pressed, organic and vegan ingredients, infused with essential oils and floral waters of the finest quality. I've used some of the products in the past and they are really good.

This complete skin care set contains some of Raw Gaia’s best selling items and is a real pampering treat. The gift set costs £48.

This lovely Celtic moon pendant by Pagan Angel is made of silver with a knotwork pattern set with a moonstone. The pendant has two slider style loops on the reverse to take a chain or a cord. Price: £15

I love chocolate and my favourite kind is made by a small firm called The Chocolate Alchemist, based in Sussex. This organic chocolate is made with strict ethical values and using high quality ingredients.

Yule is a festival when I love to burn a ritual fire but, living in the city, it can be tough to find the correct wood.

Spirit of Old firesticks are ideal for ritual, spellworking or festival fires and I am very keen to try out the Yule firestick bundle. Prices for the firestick bundles start from £14.99.
