Tis’ the season and although last year we’ve promised ourselves that this year we’ll get our Christmas gifts sorted way in advance, let’s be honest – we still need at least one or two (or a few more)!
Summersalt Yoga comes to the rescue if you’re looking for the perfect Christmas gift for your yogi friend!
We’ve scouted the treasure chest that is Etsy – you can always check the conventional shops yourself and Etsy offers so many great unique and customizable gift options! – and here are 11 perfect gifts for yogis!
A yoga towel is a great gift – any yogi will appreciate it as it is easy to pack when traveling (and to use at the studios when you do not have your own mat) as well as easy to maintain. And for you – it is easy to pack and you can choose from endless colors and patterns!
Fun yoga wear
Let’s get real – no yogi will ever have enough of yoga pants, funky t-shirts and other wear. Lucky for you – the options are endless and so is the creativity of the designers all over the world!
Yoga mat tote or strap
Nobody likes dragging their yoga mat to the class in a regular bag or even worse – unwrapped. Luckily yoga tote bags and straps were invented and now you are set for a great Christmas gift!
A singing bowl
If your friend meditates, a singing bowl is a great choice. It does not only motivates to keep up with the practice, but also encourages to explore more ways to deepen it.
A yoga book
The bookstores and amazon.com are filled with great literature dedicated to yoga and meditation. We’re sure your friend will appreciate any new add on to their library! If you’re looking for ideas – take a look at a yoga book list we’ve compiled some time back! Click the image to see it.
Aromatherapy essential oil set
Who doesn’t love to disappear into the wonderful world of aromatherapy? We have a feeling that this next gift could get yourself interested in the magical world of aromas – we’re talking essential oils and their sets. You can get a set with a few samples so that your friend can try out more and decide which ones work the best for them!
Many people love to journal and yogis are no exception! Whether to keep a travel log, try a writing flow or plan a yoga class – a beautiful journal definitely adds inspiration!
A Water bottle or a travel mug
Having a travel water bottle or mug not only cares for the environment (no plastic!), saves money (you can refill at home), but also keeps the beverages cold (or hot!). And if you can get a little creative with that – it’s just another bonus!
Set of yogi teas
Teas for chakra balance? Yes, please! There are some awesome options and one of our favorites brands is definitely the London based “Positivitea”. To be honest – this is a great Christmas gift not only for yogis, but for anyone who loves tea!
Practicing meditation takes special concentration and comfort. Help your friend practice by gifting them a meditation cushion! They come in various colors and designs, so you can match their home décor!
If you are looking for a gift for your mom, sister or a close friend and you need that they need a break – a yoga retreat can hit all the right notes. Summersalt yoga has got you covered – Balance or SUP yoga retreats and the gorgeous Vis island!
