23 Mindfulness Gift Ideas for the Holidays

The beauty of meditation and mindfulness is that they don’t require, well, anything. It’s simply you, working with your mind. But that doesn’t mean that people who practice mindfulness and meditation don’t enjoy receiving gifts! The following are gifts for meditators that any of your mindful-minded loved ones can enjoy.

How to Give Gifts Mindfully

Giving gifts at the holidays is a way to express our affection for the people in our lives. Culturally it serves to strengthen our connections within our community. And, let’s be honest: This exchange can be as uplifting for the giver as it is for the recipient, triggering a release of feel-good hormones.

Yet feeling obligated to buy gifts without meaning can just leave us empty. Even worse is when we consider the environmental impacts of all that packaging and wrapping— the mindless consumption is enough to want to skip the holidays altogether.

However, it is possible to tune into something more heartfelt to express your appreciation this season through a mindful approach to gift-giving.

When it comes to choosing holiday gifts for the meditators in your life, you can’t go wrong with a gift that gives back — ‘tis always the season to support a steady mind, social good, and respect for our planet.  The list below features a few of our favorite gift ideas that hit these marks.
