A Helpful Holiday Shopping Guide

In addition to my etsy shop, which has over three hundred prayer cards for our Gods and Goddesses, and my own books at amazon.com, I’ve found a number of other clever gifts, mostly on etsy, that I’d like to bring to folks’ attention. (If you have a shop that you’d like me to include, please feel free to post in the comments).

I am in no way associated with any of the following shops. They’re items or shops that I’ve found and really liked the past couple of weeks while doing a bit of Yule shopping of my own, so I pass them on.

  1. Mjolnir Cookie Cutters from Bakerlogy. These are awesome. This shop also has Valknot, rune charms, and vegvisir cookie cutters. These are so clever, that I couldn’t resist them. If you like to bake, these are great.

  1. Artist SJ Chilton has a lovely collection of small, plaster statues…quite unique, for many of the Norse Gods and Goddesses. I particularly love the Odin but also the fact that this shop has statues of Ran and Nott too – one doesn’t often see these particular Goddesses represented.

  1. I adore this image of linocut image of Hermes. It’s inexpensive and quite compelling. The artist has a selection of linocut prints that may be of interest to Polytheists and Pagans. It’s worth checking out.

  1. RareEarthWoodworks offers a fantastic selection of travel shrines and portable icons. I found this site one night while going down the insomnia rabbit hole and was really impresse with the quality of the shrines and the variety available. I particularly liked the Apothecary case for Asklepius and the Loki shrine. Check them out.

  1. Averidesigns has jewelry, both rings and pendants with images of the Greek and Roman Gods. I bought an Apollo piece from the shop and was very, very pleased with the quality. You can check them out here.

  1. Paul Borda just came out with a lovely Hel statue. I’ve liked most of his Norse themed statues (except his Loki – I just don’t see Loki bearded lol). He has some jewelry at his shop too that Heathens may like. Check out the Hel statue here.

  1. For those with a devotion to the Goddess Frigga, this shop offers a gorgeous silver pendant. It’s thick and heavy and nicely solid. It’s a powerful piece. The artist has pendants for several other Deities available too.

  1. Here are some knitted socks from Norway. When I was a child, I hated getting clothing as a gift for the holidays, now, socks totally rock.

  1. There’s also this gorgeous scarf, showing scenes from the life of Dionysos that can be found here. It’s pretty, elegant, and very well made. I figure it can serve either as a scarf or a shrine cloth. Y’all know how these things go. Lol.

  1. Finally, there’s this absolutely stunning set of runes. They are just gorgeous, come in their own hand carved box, and can be worn as pendants or used in divination.

Let me know what treasures y’all find as you’re preparing for the holidays. I love this time of year and in my home, the gift giving as already started. 😉

  1. I obtained an Antinous shrine from RareEarthWoodworks last month (they’re actually located in my state!), and it is lovely! I highly endorse anything they make!
