Wondering what to get for the yogi in your life? Or looking to treat yourself? Here are some great suggestions, including books, clothing, equipment and more!

1. Blooming Lotus Necklace

A lovely, subtle sterling silver necklace from Blooming Lotus. The lotus, which produces its magnificent flower from muddy roots, is a perfect reminder that beauty can arise from any circumstance.

2. Yogitoes Sky Taffy rSkidless

So many groovy designs to choose from in the Skidless these days! My favorite is the lovely blue Sky Taffy. The rSkidless towels are made from 50% recycled polyester, much of which is generated from plastic water bottles. 

3. Klean Kanteen Reflect

As cool as the rSkidless towels (above) are, we don't need to contribute any more plastic water bottles to the world's waste. Invest in Klean Kanteen's Reflect water bottle, which is made of stainless steel, silicon, and bamboo. Neither paint nor plastic are used in this handsome container.

4. Sushumna Chocolat

Partially funded by a Kickstarter campaign, Sushumna Chocolat is now available online. I suggest the Media Boxed Set, which includes one of each of their seven chakra-themed chocolates. 

5. Liforme Yoga Mat

I'm a big fan of this mat from the U.K. It feels great to practice upon and its attractive pattern is actually designed to help you fine tune your alignment in a very intuitive way. They ship to the U.S. and the E.U.

6. Yoga: The Art of Transformation

If you can't make it to Washington D.C. to see this groundbreaking exhibit at the Smithsonian's Freer|Sackler Gallery, you can still get the catalogue and peruse these amazing images at home.

7. Manduka PRO Squared

8. Forlife Stump Teapot

Give this impossibly cute and cheerful pot to the the tea-drinkers in your life. It has a built-in strainer, so you can use it for loose tea or with tea bags. 

9. Yummi Yogi Cookie Cutters

Author/yogi/funny guy Neal Pollack's new series of yoga detective novels are a great gift for your reader/yogi/humor-appreciating friends. If you've already read Downward-Facing Death, the second in the series, Open Your Heart, just became available in paperback.
