You know when it’s the middle of October, and you’re just trying to live your best spooky-season goth life, and then CVS starts shoving Yule logs down your throat? Excuse us, the only red and green we’re trying to see right now is an amulet of fake blood and an Exorcist reenactment.
But the Christmas Creep is real. And, while we will not be writing our letters to Krampus until November 1st, it’s never too early to start thinking about our goth gift guide, right? Whatever type of goth you are, we’ve rounded up some of the best dark and gloomy gift ideas for the second-best holiday season.
10 Goth Gift Ideas
1. Traditional Goths: Coffin Succulent Planter, $12.60
Goth meets cottagecore with this cute but creepy planter that screams, “This isn’t my first houseplant. We all know how this will end.” (With us figuring out how to get it to stop screaming, mostly.)
2. Best for Candle-Obsessed Goths: Dark + Delightful Wax Melts, $5
These galaxy melt wax bars make the perfect goth stocking stuffer. Pick up NEVERMORE — a deliciously spooky blend of marshmallow, brimstone, and cupcake — for your goth roommate who’s either hiding dead bodies in her room, or needs to change the kitty litter more often.
3. Best for Fancy Goths: Zoë Chicco 14K Itty Bitty Skull Stud, $70
These sweet 14k gold skull studs are the perfect gift for your goth friend who strolls right past Hot Topic without even glancing up from her Gucci leather boots. OMG, Morticia, did you not even see the Funko Pop display?!
4. Best Gift for Vampire Goths: Vampire Bat Bath Bomb, $7.99
This vampire bat bath bomb from Hotsy Totsy Haus is available in two scents: Caramel Apple Baked Pear and Rose Jelly and Peony. Which one makes 80s-era Kiefer Sutherland appear? We want that one.
5. Best for Cyber Goths: Rebel Rouge Labs Immortal Mattes, $12.99
This richly pigmented formula glides on as a liquid and dries to a velvety matte that lasts for hours — perfect for creating those futuristic looks before you head to Target to restock your Vitamin D supplements.
6. Best for Weekend Warrior Goths: Cute Bat Spooky Shirt, $23
This is the perfect tee for your wish list if you’re keeping it goth-casual these days. We feel you. We stopped wearing pants with buttons somewhere around March 476th.
7. Best for Coffee-Loving Goths: “Poe Me Another Cup” Mug, $16.95
Pay homage to one of the original goths with this pun-ny coffee mug. Hopefully your morning cup ends better than Poe’s last drinking bender.
8. Best for #Instagoths: Gothic Rosette Chokers, $36 and up
Pentagrams, crescent moons, spikes, skulls, crystals — every goth cliche is represented on these intricate chokers and we are 100% cool with that. Plus, they hide those vampire bites perfectly!
9. Best for Pastel Goths: Ouija Board Planchette Bath Bomb, $8.70
Soak your troubles away, and maybe summon a few restless spirits, with this Ouija pointer bath bomb. If the seance doesn’t work, at least you’ll smell like a mix of plum, black raspberry amber, peony, vanilla bean, and sweet musk.
10. Best for Yoga Goths: Black Widow Yoga Bat Leggings, $48.95
Catch us on the couch watching The Craft for the 29384729th time in these witchy leggings covered with bats and crescent moons. Ok, or maybe thinking about doing yoga.
