Gifts for Goths

This time we’re not preaching to the choir, as we usually do, but come to the aid of friends and family of fledgling and not so fledgling goths who want to get them that perfect gift, but are just lost as to what that perfect gift is!

Based on the flavour of your favourite goth, we’ve prepared four sets with gift ideas, tailored to suit their preferences. (And if you are that goth in question, you can always just show the sets to your family members and give them the right idea).

The first one we dubbed the Occult one, and it features all our favs from new companies with fresh, unique ideas and modern materials and designs. It’s the perfect gift for your pastel-haired darling!

The Victorian one is for your lover of elaborate Victorian mourning garb, tightly laced corsets and long velvet dresses.  We know that you can never have enough gloves capes and fans!

Quick, peek into your goth’s bathroom! How many cans of hair spray did you count? Do they moan about the 80’s scene and have a preference for torn fishnets? You might be dealing with an Old-school goth! You can’t go wrong with a bat-themed anything there, or with something from the pioneers of Gothic jewellery- Alchemy Gothic!

And of course we have something for all the creepy cute goths out there (do they still call them Perkygoths?)! Evil kitties and bat hair clips, eyeball bags and Atomic Lace, oh my!

Get a better peek at all our stuff over on Polyvore too!

Home is where the dark is - Gothic Gift Ideas

It's getting colder outside, and darker, and much much gloomier. We can't really say we disapprove of this kind of weather. There is something about strolls through the mists that calls to the poetic side of us, and we are forever in love with mornings so icy they take one's breath away.

But what makes us appreciate this kind of weather even more is having a warm nest to retreat to when the rains get a bit too cold and the mists a little to clingy.

Angelic and ethereal, this little nest is all warmth and hidden secrets. It doesn't matter if you are a white witch or the summoner of angels, you are bound to feel warm and loved, and just a little bit otherworldly.

And if you crave something darker and just happen to be a fan of Poe, why not decorate your lair and yourself with ravens?  Some warm candle light and a few portentuous birds, what more could a dark soul want?

If you are, however, of a more romantic bent,  ornate frames and a rose motif might be just right for you. This combination wouldn't look out of place in any victorian boudoir, or gothic heroine's room.  Of course, a fan is something no proper romantic lady should be without, ,so we added our latest find.

And sometimes you just want to spend the day in bed. We've got you covered. Witchy linen with a black kitty just  calls for a day spent lounging in bed. A rose shaped tea-light holder will provide the right romantic atmosphere, and two ornate and unusual mirrors are there just in case you need to whisper a secret spell.
