I created the Yuletide Shopping Guide in part because Yule is one of my favorite times of year. The guide features items polytheists would enjoy seeing in their homes or under their tree this yuletide. All with the hope of spreading some holiday cheer in a difficult year by finding items that can help feed our devotions within our polytheistic traditions, but also to hopefully along the way lift up some of the artisans in our midst too. So far I’ve included resources for crafters, makers, and DIYers: cookie cutters, crafting molds, fabric (Mesoamerican, Egyptian, Greek, Northern Europe), machine embroidery designs, cross-stitch and embroidery patterns, as well as knitting and crochet patterns. I’ve also highlighted some items on a Krampus theme. I’ve spotlighted items you can use to deck the halls and trim the tree.
Greco-Roman themed products relevant to devotees of Cultus Deorum and Hellenismos. There were some artists and artisans who offered a range of product across pantheons, or whose work focuses on a tradition that I didn’t have enough items to spotlight on it’s own. So I highly recommend that you carefully peruse the spotlighted artists and artisans in my miscellaneous Part 1, & Part 2. You will find offerings encompassing a vast array of traditions: Norse, Slavic, Celtic, Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Hindu, Polynesian, Mesoamerican, Minoan, Assyrian, Sumerian, Welsh, Asian, Native American/Inuit, and more!
Yesterday, I featured the first installment of products relevant for devotees of Kemetism (Egyptian Polytheism). Today I will be sharing with you the second installment of goods.
Based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas, DeeEgypt is a shop that sells everything Egyptian, with a lot of jewelry, deity statuary and more. Items range from cheaply made reproductions, to more unique and premium products. There’s a few items that I feel are extra special: a Bastet sistrum, a hand-painted brass and copper altar with depictions of various deities (including Isis, Osiris, Horus, Set), a Thoth clock, a wooden carved gods boat, and an Anubis tealight oil burner.
SummitCollection’s WeEgyptians are hand painted cold cast resin figures of the Kemetic Gods and Goddesses, as well as a few other items related to ancient Egyptian culture. The artistic style of these figures would appeal to most children.
Metropolitan Museum Gift Shop
New York’s Metropolitan Museum Gift Shop has an array of goodies on offer: Horus jewelry with earrings and a coordinating necklace. Plus this Horus enamel pin makes a great stocking stuffer too! Looking for something for the kids? How about some huggable Gods to be their protector and friend! You can find both Bastet and Anubis plush toy.
British Museum Gift Shop
The British Museum Gift Shop has the same Anubis, and Bastet plush toys that the New York’s Metropolitan Museum also offers. There’s a hippopotamus (an animal sacred to Tarewet) ornament , and there’s a cat (an animal sacred to Bastet) ornament. You can find a range of statuary, but these pewter statues of Anubis, Horus, Osiris and Bastet are affordable. There’s also a blue Bes statue and Bastet Bookends. Plus even more in their shop.
Next up are products of interest for Northern Tradition polytheism. Until then make sure to peruse the previous entries in the Yuletide Shopping Guide as there is a range of items relevant to Kemetics scattered throughout.
