Be Well Philly Gift Guide: 5 Awesome Holiday Gifts for Yogis

I am almost certain you have at least one yogi on your holiday-shopping list. Last year, I was the yogi on people’s lists, and it was a pretty sweet Christmas morning when I got a 10-class card for one of my favorite Philly studios.

You can always go the class-card route, of course, but if you want to buy something you can actually wrap, you’ve come to the right place. We asked Kristin Monzo, instructor extraordinaire at Anajli Power Yoga in Grad Hospital and Westmont, for her favorite gift ideas for yogis. Check out her creative picks (Note: No yoga mats here!) below.

1. Aztec Knitted Slouchy Leg Warmers, $12.99 (on sale!). 

“Leaving a sweaty yoga class in the winter can be rough. Leg warmers are a fun and functional accessory not only for yogis but for any girl surviving Philly this winter.”

2. MantraBand, starts at $25 per bracelet.

“Bracelets! Bracelets! Bracelets! Everyone loves a bracelet stack. MantraBands are the perfect bracelet for any yogi to wear alone or add to their stack. We sell them at Anjali and they’ve been a hit. They are a wearable reminder when we are off our mats to live the way we imagine ourselves when we are on our mats. Choose Joy. Peace. Infinite Love. Dream Bigger. My favorite right now is the gold Carpe Diem; it reminds me to seize the day because it’s so easy to get stuck in the mundane.”

3. Be Present Mala, $127. 

“Tiny Devotions has beautiful sets of handmade Mala beads with many different varieties for different intentions—reminders and encouragements to take to your practice to help you stay grounded and focused. You can search by ‘intention’ on this website, so if you’re shopping for a traveler, for example, look through their adventure malas, or for a mom, try the motherhood sets. Yogis love Malas!”

4. Being of Power: The 9 Practices to Ignite an Empowered Life by Baron Baptiste, $9.99.

“Who doesn’t want to empower themselves in one way or another? This book is about connecting to your authentic powerful self.”

5. Eco Vessel Triple Insulated Water Bottle, $26.95.

“Best water bottle ever! It’s so well insulated, you could put a few ice cubes in it, bring it to hell and back, and the cubes would probably still be in tact. If you practice yoga in the heat, you know that not only does your body get warm but your water does, too. This bottle keeps your H20 perfectly chilled, even in the hottest classrooms.”
