Paganism is a non-christian, earth-based religion. Pagans usually believe in several different gods and goddesses and follow different paths within Paganism, such as Celtic, Egyptian, Wicca, Shamanism, Druidism and even forms of Buddhism. With a little research, sourcing a gift for a pagan man can be a fun activity and there are plenty of options for a range of budgets and tastes.

Statues and Plaques
Figurines and wall plaques can make a thoughtful, lasting gift. If you know, or feel comfortable asking what path your pagan friend follows, then a little research will help you to find a really meaningful gift. For example; a dancing Ganesha statue is suitable for followers of Indian paganism and a rosewood Morrigan statue would be ideal for followers of Celtic paganism. If you are unsure or do not feel comfortable asking--or if your friend does not follow a specific path--items such as a Lunar Goddess statue or a Celtic pentagram wall plaque are suitable for all pagans.

Books can often be ideal gifts, especially if you're fortunate enough to know about a subject close to the recipient's heart. A book on the favoured subject not only encourages the recipient to take some time out and relax, it can also be an informative, educational gift. The Pagan Federation has published a list of suggested reading for pagans to help you pick out the perfect book gift. Topics include pagan history, pagan paths, gods and myths, exploring shamanism, druid mysteries and practical magic.

Jewellery is another personal option for a man's pagan gift. Jewellery options available includes rings, pendants and wristbands. The pentagram is a traditional pagan symbol, often used to represent the elements of earth, air, fire, water and spirit. There are literally hundreds of pentagram pendants available from online stores. Dragons are associated with power and the element air, so a Celtic dragon ring would be a good choice as would a jewellery gift featuring two interlinked hearts which is the pagan symbol for friendship. Most pagan jewellery suppliers will have these symbols represented within their jewellery.

Worry stones make thoughtful, inexpensive presents. They can be used as pretty decorations and can also be used to aid meditation and relieve stress. They are available from online stores in a range of materials such as moonstone, rose quartz, moss agate and bone. Worry stones can be plain or have designs on them, such as the typical Wicca greeting "Blessed Be," or a pentagram.

Workshops and Trips
Arrange for your pagan man to go on a pagan workshop, for a really memorable gift. Topics include magic and mysticism, tarot reading, sacred exploration, reiki and meditation. These workshops are run all over America, so check for events in your area. If your budget allows, send him on a trip to Salisbury, in the U.K, to the famous standing stones of Stonehenge. Built over 4,500 years ago, this World Heritage Site is thought by many to be a sacred pagan ritual site.
