We asked our Twitter followers a few questions about their first Tarot deck and giving decks as gifts. We had such a great response and enjoyed reading their tweets so we thought we would post them here for everyone to see and comment on.

Question #1: Did you buy your 1st #tarot deck or was it a gift?
GreenTrinity @LlewellynBooks Gift..then I got rid of that and got what i wanted lol
ellyKat @LlewellynBooks I got a “novelty deck” as a gift which piqued my interest, then I later bought my own. I feel connected to both equally.
byteofreality @LlewellynBooks Bought my first #tarot deck, but my preferred deck was happened upon by chance as an shipping error from Italy
korbeau @LlewellynBooks I was never sure if i decide to brought my first #tarot deck or is my tarot deck decide to be brought by me.

ArtemisIII @LlewellynBooks My first one was a gift from my youngest brother. But I pretty much pointed it out to him and said “this!” LOL
topazcat11 @LlewellynBooks Did you buy your 1st #tarot deck or was it a gift?< Bought 31 yrs ago. Never rec’d one as a gift. Deck should speak to you.
xSanctusAnimus @LlewellynBooks 1st was a gift from my(now x) boss. The one I have now is just as insightful, if not more, so I think it’s the Universe, not me
FPW_Consulting @LlewellynBooks my first deck was a Christmas present for my brother, but wound up in my pile of gifts, I was 15.
Question #2: Is this true? What do you think?RT @Jeweldspear: Gift… I had always heard that #tarot decks are best when they are received as gifts.
Rowan366 @LlewellynBooks I too heard it was better for Tarot cards to be a gift. My mother gave me my first set.
sarahdiemer Yes! RT @LlewellynBooks What do you think? RT @Jeweldspear: I had always heard that #tarot decks are best when they are received as gifts
staceyigraham @LlewellynBooks I bought my first deck over twenty years ago and use it as my “working deck” for clients. Love it!
calicocado @LlewellynBooksÂ I bought it myself, and now have several
Miss__Tina @LlewellynBooks Yes, purchasedfor me by my father in SF in 1966.
Miss__Tina @LlewellynBooks The deck cost about $3, as I recall.
korbeau @LlewellynBooks @Jeweldspear The best tarot deck is the one that inspire your very soul.
WickedlyLuvly @LlewellynBooks that’s what I’ve heard also.
PsychicBarbP @LlewellynBooks not necessarily…I believe a deck should ‘talk’ to you & choose you
megan23451 @LlewellynBooks My ex-girlfriend bought me my first deck, the Dragon Tarot. It’s still around – but she’s not!
ElvenJedi @LlewellynBooks I have heard that too, but I also think it’s as much about what you put in them as it is what you get out of them.
mikelking RT they are best when you make your own @LlewellynBooks What do you think? @Jeweldspear: Gift #tarot decks are best when received as gifts.
robinivy @LlewellynBooks I bought all of mine Mythic, Ryder, and Morgan Greer but I have bought some as gifts for others

TAROTGUILD @LlewellynBooks …shortly after and unsed that same deck until I got the Llewellyn Deck.Â I use the LL and now also the Legacy deck now.
OnyxWolf @LlewellynBooks I felt no connection to my first deck. A little bit of a bummer, I wanted to have an instant connection :-/
