Updated May 21, 2014

Shopping for the guys can be hard, but it just got a little easier for those of you with yogis in your life. A lot of yoga products are designed for women, but I've searched out some that make great gifts for your yoga man (or yourself!).

1. Extra-Long Premium Yoga Mat by Manduka

These mats are constructed to last much longer than your average, disposable yoga mat, and have great cushioning and traction, which explains their cult following. This extra-long mat is perfect for tall men.

2. Hotdog Rollpack

Let's face the facts: Most yoga mat bags are designed for women. They resemble hand bags and come in beautiful silky fabrics. So how's a guy supposed to get his yoga gear around town? The Hotdog Rollpack is chock full of compartments and pockets so you can keep track of all your stuff. It hold any size mat and, best of all, features an ingenious garment bag design to keep your street clothes from getting crumpled and sweaty.

3. Manduka Go Play Mat Sling

Guys sweat, sometimes a lot, and this can make for a slippery situation in yoga class. This popular accessory promises to reduce slippage on your mat. The Spice Collection offers some great earthy color choices, like Rosemary, shown here. 

5. Yoga Crow Swerve Shorts

Yoga Crow makes clothing just for men, so you know they've got an eye on what men want. These shorts are a streamlined take on a basketball short, plus pockets and a built-in boxer brief.

Calf-length pants that easily go from the street to the mat. These are made from "Breathe Weave" fabric, which dries quickly even after a sweaty class.

7. Klean Kanteen Pint Cups

These stainless steel pint cups are my new favorite thing. A generously sized drinking vessel that won't break and isn't plastic makes a great gift.
