20 Cool Christmas Gifts for Your Favorite Mushroom Hunter

Gifts for Mushroom Lovers

Well it’s that time of year and it’s been awhile since we’ve posted, so we thought why not curate some fun gift ideas for Christmas. Us mushroom hunters love our shroomery, but it often seems there are few fun products out there that excite. We have collected some great things over the years however, and Etsy has a few tricks up their sleeve.

Here are some of our favorites. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Books

How to Change Your Mind

What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression and Transcendence.

by Michael Pollan

Another great book by Michael Pollan.  An even handed treatment of psychedelics including Psilocybin mushrooms by the author of Omnivore’s Dilemna. Look for Pollan to keynote the Telluride Mushroom Festival next year!

The Mushroom Hunters

On the Trail of an Underground America

by Langdon Cook

We both love this book! Full of fascinating characters who make their living in the world of commercial mushroom hunting, The Mushroom Hunters will delight any of your bookish fungus loving friends. Masterfully written with a literary flare only Langdon Cook can deliver. 

Mushrooms

Freeze Dried Mushrooms

Our foraging friends, Nathan and Kate at Vegabond, have a great product. Try some freeze dried wild harvested mushrooms. BONUS – freeze dried products can last up to 25 years!  

Mushroom Kits

Grow mushrooms all winter right in your house. We use these kits from our friends at Mushroom Mountain and they really work!

Mycomatrix Mushroom Extracts

Pure organic, adaptogenic mushroom extracts. Try the lion’s mane for its neuro-protective effects. My favorite mushroom of the moment.

Sarah, Ashley and Korey of NorthernerApparelID have several other fun foraging designs.

Future Forage Baby Leggins and Hat with Mushroom PrintBaby Leggings and Hat

Stemless wine glasses by Cailin Henson. What a beautiful and unique gift for that mushroom loving wine drinker in your life. They can be personalized by the artist as well.

Doesn’t every forager need a mushroom for their Christmas tree? Mushroom Mountain has other wood and fabric mushroom-themed ornaments available too. Even Ikea is in the amanita mushroom ornament game this year, pretty cute!

Foraging Supplies

A popular mushroom knife that works great – Kristen’s favorite foraging knife. You really can’t go wrong with an Opinel. That said, there are cheaper knives out there that work just as well!

 

Alcaide foraging knife

These are some sexy looking foraging knives! Telmo Roque handcrafts these blades from reclaimed local furniture industries and donated boar bristles. Try this environmentally and socially sustainable product made in Portugal.

Sagaform Mushroom knife and foraging bag kit

Sagaform Mushroom foraging kit

A foraging kit with knife and canvas carrying bag. We’ve been using these Sagaform bags for years. This one sports a redesign and a price increase but I’m sure it’s still solid. 

Bear BellsBear Bells

Don’t forget your best foraging partner! The bells not only protect you both from bears, they help you hear your dog in the woods.

We love these trays and have several.  Perfect for storage or cleanup and incredibly handy in the kitchen or campsite.
