The Best Holiday Gifts to Get for Yogis on Your List

The holidays may still be a few weeks away, but signs of the season have already begun to appear. From Christmas lights to Peppermint Mocha Lattes, these symbols of celebration have got us in the mood to start planning for the festivities, and this includes plenty of holiday shopping. For the yoga lovers in our lives, we’ve found a few gifts that we’re especially excited about. If you’ve got a yogi on your list, read on for some of our top picks.

For the Traveler Yogi

If the yogi on your list has a penchant for jet setting, a lightweight, compact yoga mat is one gift they’ll be thrilled to receive. Many companies make mats designed specifically for travel that fit easily inside a suitcase or carry-on bag—perfect to use at home or on the go. We love this vegan suede one by Circé Yoga. 

For the Yin Yogi

Yin yoga involves holding poses for several minutes at a time to achieve a deep stretch, and many yogis use supportive props to make this more comfortable. While blocks are one of the more common props used, a good bolster can mean the difference between straining or being able to relax fully in certain poses. Try this cozy Crystal Bolster Pillow by Sunday Citizen.

For the Wellness Enthusiast

Essential oils are a great way to set the tone for any type of yoga practice. Restorative yogis can create a calming environment by diffusing certain oils like lavender and chamomile, while those who prefer a faster pace can try energizing options such as citrus and peppermint. This wood diffuser by Vorda will fit right in at home or in the studio.
