Everyone has that zen friend that is into meditation, mindfulness, and wellbeing. I am this friend that in the last two years decided to put some extra attention on mental health and wellbeing. And I guess everyone is a bit more spiritual now as well.
So, why not be more reflexive this festive season giving more zen gifts for your friends too?
For those who practice meditation and enjoy moments of greater relaxation, some items can make a big difference in their daily lives. With that, some gifts can be just incredible.
Thinking about it, here is my list of gift ideas for zen friends that love to look after their body, mind, and soul.
A yoga mat is super useful when practicing at home or anywhere else. It brings more comfort to the execution of yoga postures. But it can also be used for meditation and low-impact exercises. It’s multifunctional and you can play with designs, colours, and materials. It’s a cool, practical gift that will please you a lot.
Himalaya Salt Lamp
Here is another popular present for people in mindfulness. It’s said that a salt lamp produces positive effects both mentally and physically, increasing energy levels and improving your sleep.
Did you know that the Himalayan salt lamp is used by many in the home to release negatively charged ions into the air? This is because these particles are believed to lead to an improved quality of health in various ways.
It’s also aesthetically beautiful. You just need to be careful and keep into somewhere from pets to reach.
This is a super creative gift that will please you a lot. Chakra stones emit energies that vibrate in tune with each of the 7 Chakras in the body.
This helps in opening and strengthening them, empowering the whole being. I have opened Chakra stones for my whole family this year and I guess it is a creative and thoughtful gift to the loved ones.
Essential Oils Set
If you are a friend, family member, or couple and enjoy the delicious and relaxing aromas, a set of organic and natural essentials will be the perfect treat. It’s perfect to put the house into a Zen atmosphere of peace and tranquillity with some quite popular aromas such as lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree, lemon, sweet orange, etc.
The Dream catcher is treated as an amulet that was created by Native Americans and is well known for filtering bad dreams. It is known that nightmares get caught in the web and sweet dreams get through it. It is a mystical and meaningful gift. You also can choose different types of dream catchers – from the material, to colours to design.
Buddha Zen Garden
This is a wonderful gift for practically any spiritual person, as it is a beautiful garden on the ground in the living room of the house. It usually comes with a buddha, candle holder, stones, white sand, flowers, and decorative artificial plants.
Matcha Tea Set
One of my favourites – a matcha tea sea is just a relaxing and cosy pressie to give to someone. They usually come with a complete kit with a ceramic bowl, a bamboo shaker, and a bamboo bowl to remove excesses.
