Do you have a vegan yogi friend or family member in your life who you need to purchase a gift for? First, know that the gift of your love is already a wondrous treat. Second, if you want to make them extra happy…perhaps slide a personalized note into the wrapping paper highlighting your favorite things about them and thanking them for who they are. A little personal touch goes a long way. Honestly, lots of people would be happy receiving just a heartfelt letter; however, giving gifts is so much fun. Seeing someone’s face light up as they rip open the wrapping paper is such a wonderful feeling. Here’s some gift ideas that are sure to bring a smile to the vegan yogi in your life:

The yoga teachers at my favorite studio read passages from this book during shavasana. Reading from this mediation guide is one of my favorite self care methods. Your yogi friend will love keeping it by their bedside table and reading the daily meditation each morning after waking up.
Bring the outdoors in. Spending time in nature is another brilliant self care method, but sometimes we don’t have time for a walk. Having houseplants is a wonderful alternative. Being a plant momma is so fulfilling. Give your vegan yogi friend the gift of 5 succulents for less than $15. These plants are some of the cutest and most low-maintenence available.

Charcoal is a powerful detox when added to smoothies and other drinks. Tell your friend to add a teaspoon to some lemon water in the morning to help boost their immune system this winter season. It’s also wonderful for helping to cure hangovers, if they’re into that.
My favorite Christmas present from last year. These lamps release negative ions into the air which can help boost your mood, improve sleep and reduce stress. Turn it on while practicing yoga, eating, reading, writing, or basically anything. I highly recommend this as a gift for any vegan yogi. Or anyone honestly.
If your vegan yogi friend doesn’t have many essential oils yet, you absolutely must get them this kit. Essential oils will rock their world. The benefits are endless. Pair this kit with a diffuser for even more awesomeness.
Journaling is such a beautiful form of self care. Even if they don’t find joy in keeping a journal, it’s still a lovely notebook to jot ideas and to-do lists in- things that they may also want to look back and reminisce on one day.
$35 and Under
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love. On this special day, give the gift of your love with one of these precious necklaces. If these exact necklaces have sold out by the time you go shopping, there’s lots of other lovely necklaces in Wanderlust Ware’s Etsy shop.
Meditation is one of the best sources of self-improvement out there, but it can be so darn uncomfortable. Not even 10 seconds will have gone by and already our backs are stiff and our feet are asleep. This zafu pillow helps beginners and experienced meditators alike find comfort and proper alignment. Help your yogi friend deepen his or her practice with this gift.
Pair this with a NutriBullet and a reusable straw for the perfect vegan smoothie starter kit. Or just gift it on it’s own.

This is a gift hey might not buy fro themselves, but they’ll be sure glad to have it once they see the difference.

Brewing kombucha is a fascinating process. It’s also incredibly simple and cheap once you have the stuff to start. A bottle of brew costs a hefty 4 or so dollars a pop. Yikes. Save your friend a ton of money and give them the joy of brewing their own golden juice with this gift.
Yum. Spoil the vegan yogi in your life with this gift. Let the stress just melt off their body. Check out Groupon to find some solid deals in your area.
Green smoothies are a vegan’s best friend. After my parents gave me the gift of a NutriBullet I became addicted. The Bullet’s blender cups are sized so that they make exactly one smoothie. It’s easy to clean and hassle-free. Pair this with a Yeti cup and a reusable straw for the ultimate vegan smoothie starter kit.

An obvious gift for a yogi would be a new yoga mat, but what if they already have one that works perfectly well? Normal yoga mats are a bear to take with you while traveling and even just in day-to-day life. This mat easily folds up to fit in a tote, fitness bag or suitcase.
