2019 NJYC Holiday Gift Guide
What should you get for all the deep breathing, asana-flowing, mindfully meditating, athleisure-wearing, wellness obsessed, and consciously connected people in your life?
From your yoga teacher to your best friend who finally agreed to try a class (and loved it, of course), we’ve got you covered. Our experts curated these lists with love, care, and lots of attention for local businesses to help you check everyone off your list (and don’t forget the most special person in your life — you).
It doesn’t get much better than the joy of watching someone you love open a gift you hand-picked with love. The only thing that feels even better? When the present also helps to support a cause you (both) care about. From items that pamper to athleisure that will take you from the studio to the street in style, everything on this list has one thing in common: they give back.
Maybe she’s popped in and out of classes for years and is ready to make a commitment, or maybe he stepped on the mat one time and realized what it meant to find hOMe. Either way, these gifts are for the person in your life who’s ready to step beyond the occasional flow class and start living their yoga, on the mat and off.
We love that you appreciate your yoga teacher enough to add him or her to your list this holiday season and – because we are yoga teachers ourselves – we know that anything you choose will be deeply appreciated. That being said, we get a lot of candles, incense, tea sets, and kitschy little statutes of animals meditating. So maybe try one of these this year!
We cannot stress this enough – you need to move your own name to the top of your gifting list this year. The holidays are draining in ALL the ways – financial, emotional, physical, and mental. We skip out on nourishing ourselves because we are overly consumed with the doing, giving, and creating. Sometimes merriment feels like the exact opposite of what that word is meant to mean and if that’s what you’re feeling, please read this as your official go-ahead to let go and take care of Y O U.
Thank you to Michele at Turnaround Graphics for Creating our Gift Guide Graphics! We love you.
