How to pick tarot gifts for loved ones
Before we jump into this tarot gift guide, let’s quickly touch on how to pick tarot gifts for your loved ones.
Because even with a list of the best tarot gifts, you want to consider a few things to ensure what you choose makes the cut.
So keep a few of these things in mind when choosing your tarot gifts and you’ll make that special someone very happy!
Their level of knowledge/expertise
When looking at tarot gifts you want to first consider the level of knowledge/expertise of the person you’re buying for. Are they new to tarot or are they a complete expert when it comes to tarot reading?
If your person is new to tarot then you might consider getting them a gift that will allow them to expand on their knowledge or get started in reading for themselves or others.
Or you might choose to get them tarot card themed gifts that allow them to show off their new interest.
In contrast, somebody who’s been reading tarot for a long time would be less likely to benefit from learning materials than a newbie. Instead, they might prefer tools that they can use regularly in an existing practice.
When choosing your tarot inspired gifts consider carefully whether what you’re buying makes sense for their skill level. This is the best way to ensure your new gift gets used and doesn’t end up in a charity shop pile!
Their needs/the occasion
Another thing to consider when looking at gifts for tarot card lovers is your person’s needs.
It can be nice to gift something as a surprise, but this can mean that we don’t always get a gift that’s well suited to our recipient.
It’s worth asking your person what they actually need, even if you keep things vague. This can ensure that you get a present that is actually worthwhile to them.
For example, you could ask if there’s anything they feel is missing from their tarot practice. Or if they feel they have enough items of clothing at the moment.
And then this will give you a good idea of what kinds of tarot gifts to look at getting for them.
Likewise, the occasion that you’re gifting on might make a difference to your choice of tarot gift.
For example, if you’re looking for holiday tarot gifts then it would make sense to buy something that’s weather appropriate and perhaps some items that would be suitable as stocking fillers too.
Whereas you might want tarot birthday gifts to be more personal and sentimental, like some jewellery perhaps.
With that being said, there are no rules about what should be gifted and when, so just make your best judgment based on the information you have about the person you’re gifting to!
While we want our gifts to be about the person we’re gifting to, we can’t completely neglect ourselves in the process. So make sure to consider your own budget and what you’re willing to spend on a gift.
More unique tarot gifts might come at a higher price tag. And to some people this might be worthwhile, but to others it might make them unaffordable.
Don’t spend over what you’re comfortable with or ever feel like you have to spend a certain amount for your gift to be appreciated.
The best tarot gifts in the eyes of your recipient are the ones with thought behind them. So long as you can afford it comfortably, the price doesn’t matter.
