Finding yoga gifts for people who practice yoga seems tricky at first.
After all, what could yoga practitioners possibly need? Give them a mat and a couple of free square meters and they are all set, right?
Nevertheless there are some cool gift ideas yogis would find very useful (although they might not even be aware they exist, being anti-materialistic and all...).
Here are some yoga related gift ideas based on my humble experience as a part time yoga practitioner (I know I'd love to have them ). Get some or all of them and put together a yoga lover gift basket:
|Container - basket, Mat carry bag (see below), gym bag.|
|Mat carry bag - most yogis have a yoga mat but not all of them have a decent way to carry it.|
|Mat strap - the lighter version of a mat carry bag. It wraps around the mat with and keeps it rolled.|
|Yoga mat- also called “sticky mat” because it prevents feet from slipping. Most yoga practitioners already have one but if your recipient doesn’t - the thicker the better.|
|Yoga strap - help stretch limbs and hold them in place when needed. Includes a buckle to adjust strap length as needed.|
|Yoga blocks - light weight foam blocks (look like children's building blocks). Allow elevation and support for certain poses.|
|Yoga blanket - keeps you warm during Shavasana (relaxation pose), provides a cushioned support during headstand and useful for many other poses too.|
|Hair band - if your recipient has long hair, a hair band is very practical to keep hair away from eyes when a ponytail is not an option ( during inversion poses for example).|
|Yoga socks - special none-slip socks or half socks. Enable a warm yet safe practice on those cold winter days.|
|Meditation cushion - for those who meditate for long periods of time as part of their yoga practice.|
|Neckroll - to support neck when in relaxation pose.|
|Eye mask - to help detach while in relaxation pose or during meditation.|
Yoga/ meditation music
|Yoga magazine - a copy of a magazine or a subscription to one.|
Yoga practice DVD
