At Yoga Home, our intention this holiday season is to mindfully support & encourage peace, joy & presence for all. That includes supporting you in what you choose to give as gifts this holiday season. We mindfully select every product we offer at Yoga Home. We choose local and sustainable products as often as possible and feature items that support well-being, compliment a yogic lifestyle and/or give back in some way. Kat, our retail specialist, has put together an awesome guide to get something great, at an accessible price!
Crystals from Crystals2Go — $6-12
Look no further for a meaningful stocking stuffer for the metaphysical practitioner in your life! Bill Pryce of Crystals2Go is based in West Chester and smooths out each gem himself. If you look closely at a stone, you’ll notice that Bill is careful to leave a natural “imperfection” in each piece; some kind of fleck, ridge, or crack. This way, each stone is still connected to the part of earth from which it came! Generously-sized for Reiki-usage or other healing methodologies, they can make an intuitive choice for a home altar or a purposeful reminder to carry in your pocket, purse, or car. Ultimately, there is no wrong way to incorporate crystals into your life, and anything that feels significant to you is correct!
Yummi Yogi Cookie Cutters — $9
Celebrate the holiday season with mindful merriment and make your family recipe treats with these delightful shapes. Pick a cookie cutter in your favorite pose, or perhaps choose your least favorite and find a new kind of sweetness to it! A great gift for bakers, artists, and anyone looking to inspire a little presence and fun!
Mosaic Hamsa Ornaments — $15
Perfect for your tree, against your menorah, or hanging above your door to ward off bad luck. These beauties are handmade by #yogahomie Alissa Blumenthal and, let me tell you, they are going fast. Grab a few for yourself, or hang around a bottle of wine or sparkling cider as a festive gift for a host or teacher!
House of Good JuJu Candles — $20
These candles are crowd-pleasers for yogis and others alike. These are amongst my favorite gifts to give this time of the year; they smell divine, they look absolutely gorgeous both burning and decoratively, and they’re made with intention and care. Kimmie hand-makes each candle by selecting specific herbs, crystals, and essential oils, then assembling according to the appropriate cycle of the moon! Pictured here are Yoga Home’s custom candle (created just for us and inspired by our core values of love, community, and growth!), and the Zen & Flow Yoga and Meditation candles for the perfect yogi trio. (Grabbing your special someone our 30-Day Intro Special? These are a great companion!)
Mudras Card Deck — $22.95
Last I checked, we only had one left of these in the studio, so grab it while you can! This card deck is informative, aesthetically lovely, and simple enough to incorporate into your budding or established home meditation practice. The set contains a card for each chakra and several cards with hand mudra options to stimulate each chakra, each with details on the back. Pull a card and let it guide you into peace! These guys are a great compliment to Kritin’s Beginner Meditation Series starting in January!
Books! — various prices — All 25% Off!
The gift of deeper learning is such a wonderful compliment to any yogi’s practice. We’ve got basic books for any beginner, philosophical texts for our yogic nerds, and more to enhance your overall wellness and peace! (Have you checked out Brene Brown’s new book?) Some of our most sought-after staples: Carolyn Myss’ Sacred Contracts ($17) and Anodea Judith’s Eastern Body, Western Mind ($19) and Wheels of Life ($21.95). Psst- you might have spotted these in our collection of books that world-renowned master teacher Seane Corn recommends!
Air Plants – $25
There’s nothing like a little greenery to ease the winter blues and these curly, rambunctious fellas will do the trick. Air plants like these are called “xerographica” (zero-graff-ica) and make the perfect low-maintenance perk of green to spruce up your college student’s dorm room. Just submerge these cuties in water for 20 minutes once a week to keep them lively and happy!
