2015 Yoga Gift Guide: Top Gifts for the Yogis in Your Life

“He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice, trying to find out what to buy the yogi in his life…” Isn’t that how the song goes? Either way, Christmas is fast approaching and with only a few days left until D-Day, or perhaps more aptly C-Day, what do you get the yogi in your life? Read our top gift guide to find out some of the things we love!

1) Skidless Hot Yoga Towel

Any yogi will tell you, there is nothing more disruptive in Downward Facing Dog then feeling your feet slipping away from you on the mat. That’s why number one on our list is a microfiber ‘skidless’ yoga towel: prevent your loved one from sliding around this Christmas with the extra traction this towel provides. We particularly love the Yogitoes Skidless Towel which you can find at goyogi.dk and banish yoga socks forever.

2) Amazing Chocolate 

You get out of your body what you put into it, right? But it’s all too easy at Christmas to get carried away with the boxes of treats, platters of pies and bowls of sweets passed around. Help satisfy your yogi’s sweet tooth with lovely chocolate from louisebruun.dk 

3) A Magazine Subscription 

Christmas comes but once a year, but a magazine subscription will come year-round! Treat your loved one to a special treat every month with a yoga magazine subscription where they can keep up-to-date with yoga news, recipes, learn new postures and stock up on tips to impress the teacher in their next class. There are lots of different magazines to choose from so you’re sure to find one to suit your yogi, and your budget! We personally love Draze, which is a great magazine set up by a YogaLondon grad!

4) Workout Wear

The yogi in your life probably has plenty of workout wear that is comfortable but what about something with a little more, style? K-DEER and Moonchild Yoga Wear are great brands to pick up some colourful yoga pieces to brighten up the cold few months once Christmas has passed. They’ll be the envy of the whole studio!

Boys especially have a hard time finding yoga clothes. That’s why K-DEER is now making the best mens hot yoga shorts in the world! 

5) Jewellery

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, well beads are a yogi’s! From necklaces and bracelets made of beautiful mala beads — used for meditation and yoga practice — to silver ‘Namaste’ bracelets to remind the wearer to stay connected to the good in themselves and others, there are some great jewellery choices out there. We particularly love the items from Bygebjerg.com

6) Yoga Retreat 

Yoga retreats - the ultimate gift this year. Check out the amazing Naomi Clark for her hot yoga retreats in 2016. Naomi’s previous sell-out destinations include idyllic and joyful settings in Jamaica, Morocco, Egypt, Thailand, Spain and Turkey. You can order and pay via paypal so that you get your gift delivered in time for Christmas.
