Here are nine offerings that will delight the magical nature spirits and plant devas.
When you leave an offering to the fairies, do so with love and open-hearted generosity.
After all, these are the beautiful beings who help our beloved planet to sparkle, shine, burgeon, and bloom.
Making an offering to the fairies will help draw more fairies to your yard or other outdoor area, while also sensitizing you to the magical realm of the fae.
Please note that if you’re leaving offerings in a park or natural setting, it’s a good idea to preface your gifting efforts by picking up and properly disposing of any trash that you see.
1. Beer or Champagne in Walnut Shells
If there are two things fairies love, they’re bubbles and a raucous party. Gift them with both by pouring tiny bits of beer or champagne in walnut shells and leaving them on a tree stump or near the base of a tree.
2. Organic Berries
Berries for fairies: they’re sweet, they’re colorful, and they’re size-appropriate. Select some ripe, seasonal, organic berries and place them on the earth in areas you imagine the fairies would like to congregate.
Birds are fae creatures, and as contributors to healthy ecosystems, they facilitate fairy-repopulation in areas where they thrive. That’s why a bird feeder near your home can be a bird magnet and fairy magnet in one. Or, sprinkle bits of birdseed in natural areas as a love offering to birds, Mother Nature, and the fae.
5. Organic Rose Petals
Roses are said to have the highest and purest vibration of any living thing. As such, their fresh petals can help attract fairies and open the portal to the realm of the fae. Just be sure not to leave any with pesticides, as these will repel fairies rather than attract them.
6. Wildflower Seeds
Once you find seed packets of wildflowers that flourish in your area, scatter them in your yard, or reverently throw a few pinches into a natural setting. This will be a lovely gift to give the fairies, and one that keeps on giving. Once the flowers grow and bloom, they’ll draw even more beauty and life in the form of butterflies, bees, dragonflies, and moths.
7. Blessed Water
As every gardener knows, water is a lifeline for Mother Earth’s green and blossoming children. The same is true for all Her magical fairy inhabitants. Bless the water first by placing it in clear glass in bright sunshine and mentally filling it with love and positive energy. Then reverently pour it out onto the earth as a loving libation to the fairy folk.
8. Organic Mushrooms
Mushrooms are mysterious and magical beings: it’s no wonder fairies love them. While there are many different types of mushrooms in nature that are employed for many (many!) different spiritual, nutritional, medicinal, and environmental purposes, simply offering a few organic mushrooms from a local natural grocery store or farmer’s market is a beautiful way to let the fairies know you’re thinking of them.
9. Shiny Nickels or Dimes
In a pinch, you can always go through your change jar and select a few of the shiniest of the nickels and dimes. Like the fae creature known as the crow, fairies might try, but they simply can’t resist the coins’ round shape and radiant shine.

Did you gift the fairies with any of these offerings? How did it go? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
UPDATE: In response to some of the comments below, #5 was changed from chocolate chunks to rose petals due to concern for chocolate-sensitive creatures.
