Bad Yogi Approved Holiday Gift Guide!

We all have at least one Bad Yogi in our lives and with all the crazy-ness going on this time of year, it helps to have some gift suggestions πŸ™‚

Here’s some of my personal favorites that I know ANY yoga/fitness friend would absolutely LOVE to get under the tree this year!

1. Manduka PRO Yoga Mat,Β $80-$100
I don’t have any affiliation with Manduka, but I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: I love my Manduka Pro. It’s what I film with if you’ve ever wondered! I’ve had it for almost a decade and I swear it just gets better with age. It’s not super sticky at first, but it gets better with use. Plus, I hear you can salt it and that helps. It lasts forever so it’s one of those gifts that has serious staying power.

2. Kindle Fire, $49
I freakin’ love this thing! I’ve used a Kindle for a few years now but I’ve never used it more than I have this past year and a half. When we decided to move to France, I decided to gift a lot of my hard copy books so we didn’t move with them. The ones I couldn’t live without I kept, and now my book collection is almost 100% digital. I wouldn’t change it either! When I’m on the road, I can buy and download a book in seconds, so it’s super fast, easy and convenient. These are a few of my favorite things πŸ˜‰

3. The Perfect Body Yoga Program, $129
We ALL like to be pampered. Unfortunately, not all of us feel like we deserve to purchase something seemingly indulgent for ourselves, but we can easily (and gladly) gift them to someone who would love it. The thing I love about this is that it’s all about embracing the idea that the “perfect” body is simply the healthiest version of the body you already have. It’s about accepting who you are as you are, and who doesn’t need a little more of THAT this season?

4. A Notebook or Journal, $10-$25
I’m obsessed with notebooks. I know that’s a pretty strong word for a notebook, but it’s true! I was gifted a Moleskine years ago and now they’re my favorite ones to use for writing. I use a Leuchtturm for my Bullet Journaling and a Moleskine for my personal writing. I know I should go digital, but this is one aspect of my life I like to keep old school. And I know I’m not alone, so these make beautiful and thoughtful gifts.

5. Reusable Water Bottle, $10-$22
One of my goals last year was to produce less waste, and dropping the plastic water bottles is one I’m SO happy I did. I currently have an old aluminum bottle, but I’ve got a new one on my wish list this year. I love the look of these and I also love that they’re glass as opposed to any kind of plastic. Plastic can leach chemicals into your drinks, but metal is usually less heavy then glass, so either could work depending on what you need!

6. Essential Oils & Diffuser, $25-$100
The price of these varies widely, so it really depends on which brand you get. I’m linking to the one I have and love. My favorite oils are Young Living, but they’re INSANELY pricey, so if you’re going for something less therapeutic and more for simple enjoyment, then your typical essential oils will definitely do the trick.
