Ho ho ho it’s the holidays! 

What’s red, white, and round? If you guessed Santa—you’re right. If you guessed Amanita Muscaria—the cute, hallucinogenic, red and white mushroom—you’re also right! 

If you’re interested in nerding out, there’s a school of thought that believes there’s a psychedelic history to Christmas—that the Amanita Muscari inspired Santa’s red-and-white outfit, and the psychedelic mushroom is responsible for hallucinations like flying reindeer and Santa shrinking to get down chimneys. (Amanita Muscaria, produces a different type of psychedelic compound to the psilocybin mushroom and it’s often linked to Liliputian shrinking.) 

A ton of Christmas symbolism overlaps with indigenous psychedelic shamanism in Siberia and pagan rituals. Deep dive on that here. 

If you’re simply looking for things to buy and not ways to debunk the Anglo-Christian-normative Christmas traditions, read on. 

Whether you need stocking stuffers, office gifts, or a quick party favor- these are some of our favorite items in our carts and hearts. 

For Those with a Sweet Tooth

Alice Nightcap Mushroom Chocolates, $29 

We keep our tin of Alice’s chic and stylish chocolate shrooms next to our bed—for a before bedtime treat that sends us into slumber land. 

Alice mushrooms are made with fairly traded organic dark chocolate, organic Reishi from fruiting bodies (better quality), chamomile, L-Theanine, Magnesium and Zinc.

Magnesium, Chamomile, and Zinc are all powerful, natural ways to induce sleep—and stay asleep. 

If you share your bed with a troubled sleeper, consider Alice the perfect stocking stuffer. 

Vosges Chocolate Mushroom Chocolate, $95

If you have a fancy friend who loves chocolate but hates losing control, gift her the Vosges Chocolate Mushrooms. Unlike most mushroom chocolates, these ones won’t make you hallucinate. That said, the 6 inch tall chocolate mushroom is filled with a soft dark chocolate hazelnut and Chaga mushroom ganache. The Chaga mushroom has cancer-fighting antioxidants, so it’s totally healthy to eat the whole shroomz—all 1.25 pounds of it!
