Here are the first few lovely gift ideas. I'll be mentioning others over the next few weeks.
Be Happiest offers life coaching, mindfulness sessions, listening and hypnosis therapies, and wellbeing walks in the London area. Caitriona Horan, who runs Be Happiest, wrote: "I’m starting a mindfulness course Wednesday evenings in December and some daytime sessions will follow. My website shows what I do and anything can be creatively packaged into a gift voucher for a loved one"
The gift vouchers range from £1 to £100 and can be used to pay in part or in full for any BeHappiest course or event. You can find out more and purchase them via the Be Happiest website: https://behappiest.co.uk/
Kevin Groves, who teaches Kemetic and Chaos Magic and works with the Egyptian deity Selket, also runs the online shop House of Kiya. As well as offering courses, he makes amazing incense in the way it would have been made in the temples of Ancient Egypt, and handcrafted soaps.
He wrote: "I use a lot of my own luxurious Kapet incense for Kemetic rituals. Now others too can enjoy this amazing sweet spicy and earthy incense! All of them are, of course, suitable for non-Kemetics too!"
You can find out more on the House of Kiya website: https://www.houseofkiya.co.uk/
A friend of mine is taking commissions for custom cross-stitches until the end of the month. She is wonderfully creative and if you'd like to discuss a project, you can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She said that all budgets catered for. You can see just a few of her cross-stitch patterns in the picture to the right.
Before Samhain, and earlier in the year, I ran similar blog posts about witchy gifts. Those online stores are now selling amazing things for Yule and are worth checking out. Here are links to some of my previous posts:
