Practical Magic, the iconic ‘90s movie synonymous with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman, is about two sisters navigating life as women in a long line of witches, and the ups and downs that come with the craft.
For example, battling the evil spirit of a dead ex, and wrestling with a curse that prevents them from finding lasting love.
It’s safe to say the movie is full of memorable characters with distinct personalities. And it turns out the Cratejoy marketplace has a box perfect for each one of them.
If the Practical Magic characters subscribed to boxes...
Gillian is the wild, free-spirited Owens sister. She embraces her witchy roots, and isn’t hesitant to use her powers (for better and for worse). The Awakening Box, with a goal of supporting and strengthening one’s connection to the universe, would be the perfect box for the bold red-head. Each delivery comes with three healing crystals or stones, as well as detailed description cards of the properties of each item. And considering Gillian was possessed by the evil spirit of her murdery ex-boyfriend, she could probably use a lifetime supply of healing crystals.

Sally literally owns a Botanical shop, so the Herbal Apprentice Box is a pretty practical choice for the down-to-earth Owens sister. Boxes come with a variety of herbs, seeds, teas, recipes, art prints, and access to zoom classes, study guides, and a community of learners. In other words, everything Sally needs to “manufacture bath oils and soaps and hand lotions and shampoo.” It may be a good idea to steer clear of any belladonna though.
Price: Starts at $34.99/month
If any box suits Jimmy Angelov, it’s the Skulls Unlimited BoneBox. It was practically made for the villain of the movie. Each subscription includes a unique mystery skull, collectible animal trading card, and extra promotional gifts and items. For the character whose trademark was branding his victims with a skull, this box is right up his (dark and probably abandoned) alley.
Price: Starts at $24.57/month
Eldest daughter of Sally Owens, Kylie is anxious to learn the ropes of witchcraft and start practicing her gifts. The Goddess Provisions Box comes packed with curated items perfect for budding witches. From crystals, incense, and tarot cards, to natural beauty products and jewelry, this box is meant to nurture the inner goddess in everyone, and would have Kylie casting spells in no time.
Price: Starts at $27.75/month
The youngest Owens witch is curious and creative, and her mother has tried her hardest to give her an ordinary non-witchy life (spoiler: it doesn’t exactly pan out that way). But the Terra Create Craft Box, with quality tools and an emphasis on natural materials would give a girl like Antonia hours of creative crafting fun, with no spells or witchcraft required.
Price: Starts at $34.00/month
Kind-hearted, veteran witch Aunt Jet is almost an embodiment of the Tamed Wild Box. A monthly delivery of magic and earth medicine, every box comes loaded with items for lovers of all things mystical and magical. Perfect for the witch who accepts who she is, but doesn’t buy into the silly superstitions surrounding the craft.
Price: Starts at $20.00/month
For the woman who told Sally Owens that “being normal...denotes a lack of courage” the Witches Moon Box is right on the nose. This box is for authentic witches passionate about the craft, and comes stocked with hand-rolled spell candles, herbs, altar items, ritual cards, and more.
Price: Starts at $45.00/month
Officer Gary Hallet
What’s a fitting box for the marvellously kind, pancake-flipping, green-and-blue-eyed investigator from Tucson? How about a monthly subscription box for men’s essentials. Not only can he avoid high-priced shampoo this way, he can also get snacks, games, tactical gadgets, and survival gear. Great for criminal investigators, romantics, men's men, or in Gary’s case, all of the above.
Price: Starts at $11.90/month
The culminating moment in Practical Magic comes when Sally pulls out the school phone tree, and gathers women from all over town to help banish Jimmy from Gillian’s body via seance (obviously). And how does the average JoAnn recover from such an experience? A monthly delivery of self-care items may just do the trick. Boxes come stocked with self-care goodies to feed the mind, body, and soul, including sleep masks, calming lotions, happiness activities, and more.
