Hi everyone! Happy Monday and welcome back to the blog. Today I wanted to share with you my ten picks for holiday gift giving this year. I publish a blog post about this every year and since we are now about to roll into December I figured this was the perfect time.
Please keep in mind there are tons of great options in and around Salem for holiday gifts. This list is, of course, not all inclusive.
Christmas in Salem house tour
The Christmas in Salem house tour is coming up in a matter of days, so now is your chance! If you’re purchasing for someone who doesn’t live in Salem, they have a virtual option as well. Check it all out right here.
Salem’s Other Seasons
If you’re coming to Salem this winter, spring or summer I now have an off season guide available for immediate download. It is packed with tips and tricks, city wide event info and planning tools so you can prepare and make the most of your visit. Purchase for yourself or send it to a friend who is planning to visit the witch city! Check it all out right here.
The Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming
If you’re coming into Salem at any point between now and March 20, 2022, you have a chance to see the Peabody Essex Museum’s newest exhibit about the Salem Witch Trials. A gift admission ticket is a great idea and helps support the PEM. Click here to read more about the exhibit and here to read about PEM gift admission.
The best cookies in Salem, MA
Goodnight Fatty makes my favorite cookies in Salem, MA, no contest. If you’re local to the area, gift the gift of cookie deliveries! You can read all about “Fatty Drops” right here.
Stocking stuffers from Diehl Marcus
Diehl Marcus moved into Salem fairly recently (ish) and they have such unique items. Candles, teas, oddities and more. These would all make fantastic stocking stuffers! Browse their collection online right here.
A glance at the future
If you visited Salem and didn’t get your cards read, you still have options! I offer virtual/digital readings in the shop on my website and I’d be happy to read for you or for a loved one. If you’re making a purchase for someone else please note that in your order or email me and let me know when you place your order.
Moody’s gifts in Salem has such cute items for purchase. One of the last times I stopped in I purchased a blue glass pumpkin that is so adorable, I couldn’t help myself. You can browse Moody’s online shop here.
The Salem Ferry
Did you know there is a ferry that (seasonally) runs between Salem and Boston? Yup! If you or a loved one are planning to visit Salem and want to pop into Boston as well, a gift card to the ferry is a great option. You can read more about that here.
Ye Old Pepper Companie
A bit of Salem’s history plus sweet goodies all at once! How could you go wrong? Grab some old fashioned blackjacks or gibralters for a stocking stuffer or to share with loved ones after your holiday dinner.
Salem, MA walking tours
Salem is home to many wonderful walking tours, some of which offer gift cards right on their website or via email. Grab one for a loved one that is visiting the witch city soon and give the gift of history!
