Witches are making themselves known more and more these days. I must admit, I am a self-proclaimed witch (so is one of our other writers, Jennifer Gault. It became one of our best bonding moments). The mystical world has always been appealing to me. I’m not the only one – things like astrology, crystals, ouija boards, and tarot cards are sought after items. The aesthetic is also popping up all over Instagram and these kind of gifts will be in high demand. If you know any modern witches in your life, here are some awesome gifts you can get them for the holidays.

TKVO

TKVO is one of my favourite gift shops in Toronto. They are a queer gift shop located in Toronto’s Dundas West neighbourhood. The shop is an inclusive and safe space. It is also owned and operated by queer and trans folks, with a team that respects pronouns, creates meaningful dialogue, and supports the LGBTQ+ communities. They are also body positive and sex positive.

They have an amazing program called BindersOUT that give trans and nonbinary folks access to affordable binders for chest binding. The program is run by Taylor Thompson and Jay Jonah, as well as the support of the TKVO staff. You can read more about the program on TKVO’s website.

There are no shortage of witchy gifts at TKVO. If you’re looking for the perfect card, they have an amazing selection.

The Outcast Club

TKVO shares its space with The Outcast Club, “an intimate, queer, intersectional feminist, anti-oppressive, sex and body positive tattoo shop.” A witchy tattoo would make a great gift, and they have a wonderful group of talented tattoo artists. You can see all their tattoo designs on the Outcast Club Instagram page

Another Story Bookshop

Located in the Roncesvalles neighbourhood, Another Story Bookshop “sells a broad range of literature for children, young adults and adults with a focus on themes of social justice, equity,& diversity.” If you’re wondering, but do they have witchy books? They sure do! Plus, I love browsing through this store because of their incredible collection of intersectional reads.

Curiosa

Located on Queen West, Curiosa has “a diverse selection of eclectic curios, vintage reproductions, quirky novelties, and licensed magical goods.” This store has so many unique objects and is worth perusing. Their moon phase calendar is absolutely stunning. 

Qveenofswordstarot

Why not gift the ultimate gift, and book a tarot reading appointment? A queer tarot reader based in Toronto, Qveenofswordstarot creates a safe space for LGBTQ+ folks wanting to have a tarot reading.

“When reading tarot I feel so connected to the person I am reading for. We are totally in awareness together in that moment. It’s those moments that keep me passionate about what I do, the people I serve and the dimensions of human connection.”
