Top 10 Gifts for the Male or Female Yogaholic
If you are shopping for a yogaholic, you have come to the right place. Since I am a yogaholic myself, I can tell you exactly what to purchase. I would want to receive everything on this list that is for a female.
#1 Yoga mat
I have one yoga mat, but I plan to add more to my collection so I can teach yoga to my children. The YogaDirect Fun Yoga Mat For Kids would be perfect for my 5-year-old. Plus, it is reasonably priced at $17.99.
Every yogaholic can have more than one yoga mat, especially when they come stamped with football team logos. This Philadelphia Eagles Pink Yoga Mat costs $24.95. These nonslip mats are available with numerous team logos. They also roll up in a snap, making them easy to transport to a yoga class.
Men may not appreciate a pink mat, so consider this $19.99 Gaiam Rococo Yoga Mat in orange.
#2 Yoga mat wash
Yoga mats need to be cleaned, so why not clean them with soothing scents of lavender, relaxation and energy? This four pack includes one unscented and three scented cleansers to naturally clean and deodorize yoga mats. Daddy Van's All Natural Yoga Mat Wash is sure to please any yogaholic. The regular price is $35, but right now it is on sale for $30.
#3 Cropped yoga pants
I prefer cropped yoga pants over full length ones. The last thing you want to do is trip over your pants in the middle of yoga. Cropped pants are sure to fit anyone who is petite, average or tall. These Women's Fold Over Yoga Capris are perfect for any female yogaholic. They have the Old Navy logo on them, and they are available in petite or tall for the perfect fit. Purchase them for about $16.50 and choose from five color combinations.
When purchasing yoga pants for a man, these $52 Mana Crop Pants by Inner Waves are perfect. They are not too tight nor to lose, and they are made with just the right materials for optimal movement.
#4 Yoga DVD
Every yogaholic wants a collection of DVDs to choose from. You cannot go wrong with a new fitness video to add to their collection. With hundreds of DVDs to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect one for men, women or children. Prices range from $7-$30.
#5 "The Yoga Bible" paperback book
A true yogaholic will want "The Yoga Bible" if they don't already have it. This book includes illustrations of over 150 postures. In addition to illustrations it also features directions for beginners, as well as advanced postures for those who are more experienced. This cost effective gift will only subtract $13.59-$19.99 from your wallet.
As a yogaholic, I want to add every possible element to my yoga experience. Adding scent aids in relaxation, concentration and meditation. Lavender scented incense will induce relaxation and plumeria will leave you feeling placid. These incense cost between $3-$5 per package.
#7 Incense burner
#8 Yoga eye pillow
Help a yogaholic to relax by purchasing the Manduka inSight Yoga Eye Pillow. This eye pillow is silky smooth to the touch, and the bamboo fabric will naturally cool the skin. The cost is $27, and this cooling accessory is available in Marine (turquoise), Midnight (blue) and Sangria (pink).
#9 Yoga bag
This heavy duty bag is perfect because it is something that someone may not spend the money on for themselves. This $54.99 OMSutra Namaste Yoga Kit Bag is spacious enough to hold a yoga mat, blocks and accessories. The neutral color makes it perfect for both men and women who love yoga.
#10 Yoga figurines
For the yogi who has it all (except this of course), these figurines are sure to please. This $43.99 set of three asanas includes the camel pose, the one legged upward-facing bow pose and the bow pose.
If you are shopping for me, I will take one of each. Don't forget to pamper yourself while shopping for others. If you are a yogaholic yourself, pick up two of something; one for someone else and one for yourself. Happy shopping!
