The Best Gifts for Yogis

Our top picks for presents that you’ll feel good about buying, and that won’t break the bank.

Our top picks for presents that you’ll feel good about buying, and that won’t break the bank.

From asana-enhancing accessories, to charity-minded apparel, to stuff that just makes you feel—and smell—good, here’s what we’ll be giving this holiday season.

Or show your love DIY-style: Check out these homemade gift ideas.

For Him: Rebel With a Cause

A rough-and-tumble cotton tee with attitude designed by the two yoga teachers behind Outlaw Yoga. He’ll like it because it’s functional for yoga class yet cool enough for everyday wear. We like it because OY donates proceeds to Give Back Yoga Foundation’s work with prisoners and veterans.

($22, givebackyoga.org)

For Him: A No-Nonsense Shave

This organic unscented shave gel from Dr. Bronner keeps stubble at bay without irritating skin. Dr. B gets the thumbs up from guys who don’t want a bunch of fancy stuff in their man care. We like a company that stands up for GMO labeling laws.

($9, drbronner.com)

For Him: Strap and Go

The Loop it Up strap solves the problem of how to carry an unwieldy yoga mat (let’s be real, he won’t use a tote). Loop it on, sling it over your shoulder, and you’re good to go. Done.

($18, shop.lululemon.com)

For Him: Room to Move

Prana’s ultrasoft Sutra Short is made from a blend of Lycra, hemp and recycled pop bottles. Breezy and stretchy.

($60, prana.com)

For Him: Sweat Solution

The sustainable microfiber PackTowel absorbs double its weight in water yet wrings out almost completely dry. He’ll use it in yoga and at the gym.

($33, backcountry.com)

For Her: Note Ready

These beautiful handmade travel journals are made from recycled cotton paper. Proceeds fund literacy programs for the Northern Indian women who make them.

($24, ravenandlilly.com)

For Her: Wrap It Up

satya, real

This gorgeous silk wrap bracelet from Satya Jewelry is the perfect present for your favorite yogini. There are several color options so go ahead, get one for yourself too. Proceeds go to children’s charities.

($48, satyajewelry.com)

For Her: On the Go

Lole’s lightweight eco-friendly I Glow Travel Yoga Mat has an adhesive no-slip surface and packs up small enough to fit into her overnight bag.

($30, lolewomen.com)

For Her: A Girl’s Best Friend

Nothing says “I got your back” better than really good chocolate. And with this cool gluten-free vegan dark chocolate kit, you’ll inspire her kitchen wizardry and help out animal-protection organization Farm Sanctuary to boot.

($25, shop.farm.sanctuary.com)

For Her: Divine Scents

These roll-on fragrances are inspired by Hindu goddesses. Our favorite? Parvati, a sensual warm vanilla fragrance to stir the shakti in any gal. And the adorable bottle fits snugly into a her bag for an easy midday touch up.

($30, thegoddessline.org)

For Her: Yes to a Moist Pucker

This natural sweet fig lip butter smells and tastes yummy and seriously moisturizes your lips. Toss into a yoga bag and slick on after Savasana or carry it onto the slopes for needed sun and wind protection.

($4, yestocarrots.com)

For Her: Stylish and Functional

Headbands are a cute, practical way to show some yoga love. This Parisian-inspired design is pretty for wearing around town and will keep the sweat off her face through her gazillionth Sun Salute.

($17, rebeccamichaels.com)

For Her: Yoga Wear

Apparel is a sure bet for any yogini. Choose from our favorite apres-class yoga wraps or fun yoga pants—you can’t go wrong.

For Kids: Just Right Yoga Mat

Little Girl In Warrior 2

This adorable kid-sized mat is made from eco-friendly, non-toxic materials. Plus, it’s slightly cushy so your little ones will love stretching out on it.

($25, namastekid.com)

For Kids: Bedtime Story

Olaf Hajek’s large illustration book features yoga poses in bright whimsical colors, bringing the practice alive in a fun way.

($13, barnesandnoble.com)

For Kids: Play Date

Start them young with this fun board game that blends poses with trivia on healthy eating and the environment. First player to reach “OM” wins.
