your perfect Christmas gift guide // the yogi (and there’s a FREE printable!)

welcome back!
I am SO loving this new series on your perfect christmas gift guide πŸ™‚

we’ve already tackled what to get for the introvert & your mom, aunts & mom-in-law!

this post is a little different.

do you have a friend who loves spending time on their yoga mat? πŸ™‚ who’s always hitting up the local studio or informing you of how you’d feel better if you just balanced your chakras with a few fluid asanas? πŸ˜‰

if so, then this is the gift guide for YOU!

gift guide the yogi

all of these yogi goodies are things your yogi friend is sure to love to help with their practice or keep them hydrated & healthy ❀

I’ve chosen top brands, beautiful colors, and (mostly) frugal price tags to fit any budget, for your purchasing pleasure πŸ˜‰

1.) this lifefactory glass water bottle is BPA free & oh-so-darn-cute! it has a protective silicone sleeve (aka the cuteness!) in a soft blue that is calming to the eye, and a handle that makes for easy toting to and from yoga class. grab it here!

2.) a yoga mat carrier that tells the world where you feel most at home? yes, puh-lease! I’ve been eyeing this gem for months now, and I’ve got my fingers crossed that this will show up under MY tree this year πŸ˜‰ get the “my home is where my mat is” carrier here.

3.) this lotus candle holder is a yogi dream come true! it beautifies even the barest of yogi havens and holds a tiny tea light (candlelight flow? yes!). I own this personally, and it is my favorite addition to my practice space! ❀ you can get it from your local michael’s craft store too!

4.) an incense holder is another must-have for any practice space, but it’s even better when shaped like a mudras hand! (add some incense sticks with it for the perfect gift!) grab yours here at incense-incense before they’re gone!

5.) this “be here now” print would look lovely hanging on the wall of your yogi’s practice space, wouldn’t it? well guess what…. it’s FREE to print on your own computer!!! just download it from the pretty bee blog! how can you say no to free gifts?!

6.) gaiam’s yoga blocks are the foundation (teehee) of many extended pose variations! they help us yogis to push our bodies further and see all the amazing things they can do! πŸ™‚ this one is in a pretty green color, and you can buy it at your local target store or from gaiam.com!

7.) yoga paws! oh, yoga paws! I’m pretty sure I’ve reminded my hubby of how much I want these dozens of times this fall!! πŸ˜‰ basically, they allow you to take your mat with you… attached to your hands and feet! comfy, sturdy, and full of grip, they come for both hands and feet, separately, or as a set. I can assure you that your yogi will be oh-so-thrilled to unwrap a pair of these this year! get them on yogapaws website!

8.) a beaded mala bracelet will pretty up any yogi’s practice and instill calm through color and stones. plus, I love the little addition of a wooden bead, engraved with a lotus on the one shown above! πŸ™‚ this one is handmade from etsy.

9.) mandala coloring book for adults is the yogi version of the latest craft craze! adult coloring books have been filling up the stores this year, and now there’s a perfectly chill and insightful option for yogis of all ages! πŸ™‚ in addition to pretty much every book store selling countless similar items, barnes and noble sells this particular copy.

your yogi friend will adore your thoughtful consideration of their lifestyle & favorite activity, and perhaps you’ll even get a free practice sesh out of it all πŸ˜‰

happy gifting!!

***don’t forget to check back for our next gift guide… we’ll be talking about what to get for the GUYS***

your perfect Christmas gift guide // mom, aunts & mom-in-law

I asked, and you responded.

next to brothers, dad, husbands, and men in general (let’s be honest!), it was determined that in-laws are the toughest to shop for!! while this gift guide just covers your mother-in-law, have no fear that there will be many more posts to come that will be totally applicable in helping you shop for your sisters, brothers, and fathers in law, too!!

ladies gift guide

sometimes it’s a bit tricky to know what to grab for those ladies in your life who mean the whole world to you, but are just interested in different things, have different views and opinions based on that age gap, or who don’t always give you a lot to work with when it comes to a Christmas wish-list.

each of the gift ideas I’ve combined below are inexpensive enough to keep the budget in check, while still showing your favorite ladies how much you care ❀

the key to shopping for your mom, aunts, and mom-in-law is to keep things trendy, fresh, and fun, but still timeless, elegant, and classy!Β 

so get out your Christmas gift idea notebook (am I the only one who has one of these…) and start taking notes!! πŸ˜‰

let’s get started, shall we?! πŸ˜€Β  Continue reading “your perfect Christmas gift guide // mom, aunts & mom-in-law”
