Christmas shopping season is officially here and whether you’re braving the crowds and hitting the high street or shopping from the comfort of your sofa, it always lands up feeling *slightly* panicked. Wracking your brain for the perfect gift, especially for someone who has different interests to you, can be rather challenging. Trying to shop for that friend who works out out every chance she gets, a teenager you love but just can’t understand or for a Secret Santa gift for Helen from Accounts (who you’ve only ever said hi to)? It’s enough to turn anyone into the lovechild of Scrooge and the Grinch.
Not to mention trying to find the perfect gift for the yoga lover in your life – you know, the friend or family member who *actually* wears yoga pants to go to a class, has a line up of yoga mats depending on which style she’s planning on practicing that day and makes time for her daily flow the way you do a trip to the pub. Unsurprisingly, if you don’t know your Vinyasa from your Bikram, you might be left feeling a little stumped as to what your yogi pal would appreciate under the tree this year. But fret not, we’ve done some digging and found a list of the 23 best yoga gifts that they’re guaranteed to love.
Of course, we’ve included the staples necessary for any practicing yogi – a colourful nonslip mat, a pair of stylish leggings, and a water bottle to keep hydrated between poses. But if you’re looking for a yoga gift that she doesn’t already have why not gift her a personalised strap for her yoga mat or these crystal bracelets to further her sense of calm and wellbeing.
For yoga lovers looking to take their practice to the next level, there’s these ankle weights that will really get the burn going or this beautiful yoga block to make her favourite pose more challenging.
Our well-researched list also includes a selection of yoga gifts under the £30 mark, taking the stress out of both your shopping and your budgeting. These options like this minimalist yoga inspired wall art or these Yoga bunny headbands may be inexpensive but they’ll still hit the mark for the yoga lover in your life. Sorted.
