Today, is officially the start of my birthday week! My family and friends have recently asked me what I would like as a present, aside from their presence and happy thoughts of course, but I am so easy to buy for. Anything to do with yoga, meditation and genuine positive vibes is a winner in my eyes.
Presents don’t have to be costly and materialistic – instead, someting thoughtful and useful to further my practice would do the trick. I thought it would be a great idea to put together a list of top 10 gifts that all yogis would love to have. It’s a perfect guide for those who are buying for someone, for the yogis who aren’t sure what they want and also if you want to treat yourself to a nice present too (why not?)!
What better way to start the day than with a deliciously fresh mint tea in this Namaste mug from Alotamugs. They have a range of different prints you can buy from Etsy but I think this is my fave.
These candles are the Papa of all candles. I have a candle that I got for Christmas, light it every night and it’s still going! The fragrances are wonderful, I prefer vanilla scents but there’s a great variety to choose from.
Beautiful mala beads are perfect for meditation and when chanting prayers throughout the day. Hippicious have a wonderful collection and this 108 Bead Mala with a Cranberry/Plum Lepidolite, Kunzite, Rose Quartz, Mystic and sparkling Agate, Crystal Beads are perfect!
This Manduka PROlite Yoga Mat is a bring comfort and cushioning to ones practice and comes in many different colours too.
Meditation cushions are great when you’re planning on meditating for a long period of time. This Zafu Meditation Cushion from Gaiam is ideal for a comfortable session.
Perfect for sound meditation and sound healing. I have a variety from India, which vary in shapes and sounds.
