2016 Holiday Shopping Guide for Yogis

2,197 post views

It’s holiday time again and we’re all looking for gift ideas for our favorite yogis. With so many gifts to buy, we wanted to help you find the perfect gift for every yogi.

We all know that yoga practice is more than just exercise, it’s about being present in the moment and is part of a healthy lifestyle. Now whether the giftee (smile) is a long-time practitioner of yoga or a beginner, we hope the list we put together will inspire you to find just the right fit.

A Yoga Mat Bag

A yoga mat bag is a great gift! I know it may sound silly, but usually yoga mats are left in a car, they unroll and get messy and dirty. A nice bag can help keep the mat clean and protected; plus it makes it easier to carry and can be used to store keys, wallets, phone during class. Here are some of our favorites:

Yoga Mat Duffle Bag Patterned Canvas with Pocket and Zipper

This bag is VEGAN & ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – Kindfolk’s bags now use man-made leather, meaning it is animal-friendly and super fun.

This colorful bag is 26″ x 8″ x 5″ and will fit up to a thick 26″ mat.

This cute little hand-made bag from Hugger Mugger has an outer pocket and a zippered inner pocket. It comes in various colors and designs and has a soft, adjustable shoulder strap. The strap is also extra wide for additional comfort.

Yoga Mat Tote Sling Carrier by Yogiii

Here is another variation of the yoga mat bag, the Yoga Mat Tote Sling Carrier from Yogiii. This beautifully crafted yoga mat carrier fits all mat sizes and has one large pocket for a water bottle, towel and more. In addition, there is a smaller interior zipper pocket for your keys, wallet, phone or other valuable. We like the fact that this is an interior pocket as it is a bit more out of sight.

A Yoga Mat Towel

Ever notice that 10 minutes into your yoga class you start sliding all over your mat. While a slip-n-slide is fun in the summer, you may not want to end up on your face during downdog or in a split while trying to hold warrior I.

A yoga mat towel may be the answer you’re looking for. This absorbent towel will soap up all that sweat and add traction for your hands and feet.

Manduka eQua Yoga Mat Towel

The Manduka eQua Yoga Mat Towel features super absorbent microfiber technology which results in a quick drying and soft, suede-like feel. This highly-durable yoga mat towel is made to withstand frequent use and washing and also helps provide a hygienic layer between you and your mat. Check out all the cool colors!

Shandali Gosweat Hot Yoga Towel

The GoSweat yoga mat towel from Shandali is another great option. This yoga mat towel offers a slip-free foundation that results in more stability. Without the risk of slipping, you are left to focus on your pose and trust yourself more as you progress through your ever-evolving practice. If you’re looking to rent a mat, this barrier is another nice, hygienic choice.

Yoga Mate Perfect Yoga Towel

Perfect for those super sweaty yoga practices in your hot or bikram classes. When you’re done, just machine wash and dry this towel with the rest of your laundry and it’s good to go.

Matymats Women’s Workout Tee Long

The Matymats Women’s Workout Yoga Tee is a excellent choice for anyone who prefers a long sleeve shirt. I personally like the fact that sweat isn’t dripping down my arm and making my hands slip. This fast-dry shirt wicks away sweat and moisture to keep you comfortable.

This great workout shirt also has thumb holes and complete hand protection which makes it a great choice for running and other outdoor activities

Home Essentials

Your yogi may be all geared up already, but what about their home? Here are a few items we use in our personal spaces.

InnoGear Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser

The InnoGear Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser has a great design which helps incorporate it into any room. The color-changing lights are a nice mood enhancers and the cool-mist humidifier adds moisture to the air and help alleviate some of the dryness on those cold days. Just add a drop of your favorite essential oil to the 200ml InnoGear and you will quickly notice a fresh, clean scent.
