If you’d like to give the gift of tarot this year but don’t know which deck to go for, here’s a quick guide to our favourites!
This gorgeous, colourful, super-inclusive tarot deck has it all – including a full-length guidebook so that even tarot newbies can get started right away. The deck is gender-neutral and has a young, compassionate, encouraging vibe. I love it!
This accessible deck is a much-beloved customer favourite. Complete with its own guidebook, this deck is filled with colourful, relatable images and is a great choice for anyone new to tarot.
This is a high-quality, witty and intelligent deck filled with masterful collage images. It comes with a small guide-booklet and contains extra cards for the astrological signs and elements.
Another favourite among LRT customers, this classical tarot is an absolute stunner (and an Instagram hit!) Hand oil-painted in renaissance style, this deck leans on Northern European pagan symbolism and is filled with lush imagery rooted in nature. Guidebook available separately.
Hot off the press, this lively, modern tarot is accessible, no-nonsense, self-care for the millennial generation (never quite sure if I’m in that – 1982, anyone?) Anyway! Feasturing a diverse cast of characters going about their everyday lives, with a touch of magic and intuitive guidance. At the time I’m writing this we are sold out of black-edged decks, but have more arriving within the coming weeks!

My personal favourite, Thea’s Tarot is a queer feminist classic – first self-published in 1984 by artist Ruth West, it was recently picked up by queer publisher Metonymy Press and re-released along with a new guidebook, She Is Sitting in the Night. It’s an LGBTQ intergenerational conversation, illustrated in gorgeous papercut art showing queer folks of all stripes, colours, bodies and presentations.
Written to accompany Thea’s Tarot, this brilliant tarot guidebook can be used with any deck, offering modern, progressive, DIY-culture interpretations of the classic cards. (It’s the tarot book I wish I had written!)
Written in the 70s by the awesome trans Jewish lesbian tarot veteran Rachel Pollack, Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom is now a classic tarot text and we proudly stock it. A universally brilliant tarot guidebook which delves deep into the tarot and its themes and symbolism, this is a great gift for anyone who reads tarot, whether experienced or total beginner. I turn to my dog-eared copy all the time.
