It’s that time of year when the realm of fairies draws near.
And fairies love gifts!
Here are nine things that will delight these magical nature spirits and plant devas.
Whatever you choose to leave as an offering to the fairies, be sure to 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.
As an added bonus, 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 with the priceless gift of 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
They’re sweet, they’re colorful, and they’re fairy-sized. 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.
As everyone knows, fairies love things that sparkle and shine. But crystals – big or small – are also attractive to the fae because of their high, clear, and positive vibrations.
5. Organic Chocolate Chunks
Sweets are another favorite of our fairy friends. And it’s pretty hard for them to get their little hands on chocolate without some help from the human realm. Too much isn’t good for them, but a very tiny bit here and there will be a greatly appreciated gift. (Be sure to tuck it into the soil or otherwise place it wisely to make sure it doesn’t cause harm to dogs or other neighborhood animals.)
6. Wildflower Seeds
Once you find seed packets of wildflowers that flourish in your area, scattering them in your yard, or reverently throwing a few pinches into a natural setting, 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/or 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 care.
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.
