Now that we approach the end of a very difficult 2020 it seems that our holidays this year will be a little different this year
Everyone has had a tough time in 2020 and one of those groups really affected by lockdowns are the small, local businesses. Online shopping has become their way to keep going. So with that in mind let’s shop small with unique independent makers and crafters.
Check out these great gift ideas either for yourself (happy holidays to me!) or your favorite yoga and self care fan.
How fun is this? A little handmade rainbow essential oil diffuser for your home or your car. Just a few drops of oil added to the bead and hang wherever you like. It has to be on show somewhere as it’s too cute to hide away!
How beautiful is this? Love the meditation cushions but double love the color. If this doesn’t inspire you to sit quietly for a moment of meditation or mindfulness then what will?!!
A critical part of any self care day is a hot cup of herbal tea. We’ve all got oodles of these little tea envelopes with the tea cups. Why not give them some extra special storage to make each drink a treat!
100% Handmade. Natural. Biodegradable. What better gift could you give. Ticking all the boxed for a sustainable product to be loved forever!
Cross body shoulder Bag. Great for yoga, great for groceries, great for travel. Who doesn’t need foldaway, reusable bag for using again and again and again. In fact, it’s a life essential!
We’ve all got at least five or six essential oils haven’t we? Whether for our diffuser or body care how useful is this dinky essential oil rack? (fits 15ml bottles, by the way )
For the dedicated yogi in your life – especially the Iyengar fans. These solid wooden blocks are perfect for supporting poses and bringing the floor to you when you can’t make it to the floor. These firm blocks are also perfectly shaped for super easy wrapping!
Minature artwork to grace a yogi’s altar. These little canvases come with their own little easel for easy display in your yoga and meditation space. These artworks are from yogaskinny’s sister etsy site, maycontainpaper.
They say that having a dedicated meditation shawl is a way of absorbing all of the good energy from your meditation practice. What a wonderful concept! Keep cozy and warm during meditation or even use as your post yoga cover up. This beautiful, drapey wrap can be personalized with elegant embroidery for that extra special touch
This organic plant dyed journal is handbound contains 92 pages of unlined paper for all of your journaling thoughts, ideas and notes. Available in a bunch of gorgeous colors. I think I’ll have the orange….no, the turquoise…..no, the red…..no……..eeek. I want all of them!
Everyone needs a little down time and everyone needs a lavender eye pillow. These unique eye pillows are filled with rice, dried lavender and lavender essential oil in a a naturally dyed case. The perfect accompaniment to a relaxing savasana.
Make this year’s holidays a little more special by committing to shop small and support small businesses. Let’s look for a positive from 2020 and maybe we’ll all just convert to the idea of ‘shop small’ going forward. How good would that be? 🙂
