24 (Non-Clothing) Gifts for Goths!

As the holidays approach it's time for the loved-ones of Goths to panic about what to get them (or that's what my family tells me!) If you don't want to take the gift-card cop-out but aren't sure what size or type of clothes they're into, here are twenty-four gift ideas sure to make Goths of all ages smile:


  1. A CD from a favorite Goth band, or one of the classics like The Cure, Depeche Mode, Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees. 
  2. Scented soap or bath salts from Etsy
  3. Themed fridge magnets. I'm partial to the poetry ones, which come in themed packs like Vampire or Edgar Allan Poe
  4. Black nail polish
  5. An old fashioned horror film, or one of the many sets out there.
  6. Sponsor a bat in their name!
  7. Dark stationary, perhaps from Evil Supply Co.?
  8. A popular book on Goth, like that by Jillian Venters or Voltaire, or like the one I reviewed on Wednesday!
  9. A dark mug. Bonus points if filled with treats
  10. Dark buttons/pins from Etsy or similar
  11. A new cellphone case, especially good if they have a popular phone such as an iPhone
  12. A Goth keychain
  13. Calligraphy pen
  14. If you can source them, a small (cleaned) animal skull. Be sure to wrap carefully!
  15. Black candles
  16. A package of loose tea 
  17. A jewelry box or stand
  18. A stuffed animal bat
  19. Flavored Lipbalm in an unusual scent like Absinthe or Rose
  20. Halloween craft supplies (will require sourcing in advance)
  21. A Journal
  22. Sample perfumes from BPAL or similar
  23. A spooky vinyl decal
  24. A print from an artist that they like
If 24 ideas aren't enough, check out my Gift Ideas for Goths Pinterest board with great ideas and pictures! I've also been posting a lot on my Goth Christmas board, so be sure to look at that.

What would you like to see under your Christmas tree this year?
