It’s that time of year when we’re all looking for the perfect gifts for the holidays. I know quite a few yoga lovers (including myself), so thought it might be fun to put together a yoga gift guide for the holidays this year. In this list you’ll find a few affordable pieces, some mid-range items, and a couple of splurge items. Basically, there’s something for every kind of yoga lover you know!
Yoga Gift Guide
- Bala Bands – These are on my wishlist right now for adding a little more resistance to some of my practices. I think they’d be a perfect gift for the yoga-lover who likes to mix things up and add in a little play within their practice.
- Knee/Elbow Pad – Another prop that’s on my personal list is a rectangular knee pad, like these. (These are the ones that the studio where I teach & practice uses, so I know they’re good!) They’re perfect for extra padding in knee-down poses, and for when practicing inversions.
- Hand-Woven Yoga Straps – As a yoga teacher & for my own personal practice, I am pro-yoga props, and I love a good yoga strap. These hand-woven straps are really unique and would be a fun addition to any stash of yoga props.
- Cork Yoga Blocks – This is one thing that some people may already own if they’ve been practicing yoga for a while, but those that are newer to yoga might not. Cork yoga blocks are a little more sturdy, plus it never hurts to have both— you can use them for different things!
- Ritual Rug – I have the Ritual Rug in grey and it is such a unique yoga mat! At first glance, you may think it doesn’t look very “grippy,” but it’s moisture activated, so a little sweat makes it work even better! I love using it to practice at home + it looks lovely hanging on the wall like a tapestry when I’m not using it. (Use code MOLLYMOON for 10% off!)
- Meditation Cushion – A simple meditation cushion is a great gift for helping someone create a cozy space for their practice.
- The Yamas and Niyamas by Deborah Adele – This was probably my favorite book that we read during yoga teacher training. (In fact, I’m getting ready to read it again.) I’ve recommended this book to friends who aren’t even interested in yoga. It’s that good.
- Eye Pillow – An eye pillow is an excellent addition to your savasana, and a great way to get a little more of the “studio experience” at home. I have a larger heating pad by this same shop and I absolutely love it. I might just have to snag this print for myself.
- Yoga Pose Ornament – I have this exact ornament that I had customized for myself and a friend when we completed our teacher training last year and I love it so much. There are other poses available in the shop, too!
- Yoga Wheel – You may not see yoga wheels often in classes, but hear me out: they feel so good for rolling out your spine when you’ve been sitting at your desk all day. And there are great backbending drills that you can use them for, too! Honestly, they’re fun. I have a hot pink one, but I love the look of this cork version from the same brand.
- Yoga Pose Cookie Cutters – Aren’t these cute? I picked up a pack for myself last year to make little yoga gingerbread people.
- Yoga Pose Mug – Everyone loves mugs, and this multi-pose mug is so fun & colorful!
- Asana Flash Cards – I have a very simple set of cards with poses on them, but these are absolutely stunning. (See also: me adding these to my personal wishlist, too). One side has the pose image, and the other has the name, pronunciation, cues, and modifications.
- Personalized Yoga Blanket – These blankets are the perfect kind for yoga. And I love the idea of adding a personalized touch to them!
