If you’ve ever had to buy a gift for someone whose interests are nothing like yours, my condolences to you and your wallet. Guessing what someone might like is a gamble that will most likely earn you a high pitched “I love it”, accompanied by a tight smile.
While ideas for the perfect gift can be challenging, when it comes to the calm-cultivating, balance-seeking, chakra-aligning yogis in your life, there are so many gifts they’re guaranteed to love.These gifts go beyond the basic leggings and yoga mat (although, of course, they’re in there too). Instead, think outside the box with inventive wall decor, muscle soothing bath salts, Ayurvedic skin products, and so much more.
After all, yoga is a lifestyle, not just an activity, as your friends might tell you time and time again–so, why not incorporate gifts that can fit into every area of their life? While some of these gift ideas are from well-known brands, others are from smaller companies that truly live the spiritual lifestyle, so you’ll be hard-pressed to find something your friend won’t love.
What’s even better is the fact that no matter what your budget might be, there are easy options from $10 all the way to $100, and your yogi honestly won’t even be able to tell the difference. This time, you can rest assured that the enthusiasm you’ll receive upon giving your gift is genuine. And who knows? After browsing through this list, you may even be inspired to pick up the practice yourself.
