Moms can always use a few moments of zen. They spend their days running here, driving there, and keeping track of countless schedules that rarely include downtime for them. This holiday, find gifts for mom that encourage her to find her inner zen — even if she never plans to set foot in a yoga studio.
Relaxing and zen-worthy gifts
We gathered the most relaxing — and beautiful — yoga accessories we could find for a lovely collection of zen-worthy gifts. In a world centered on meeting other people’s needs, workout attire and stylish gym bags often get pushed to the bottom of shopping lists.
If the mom you’re gifting carves out time for yoga, a new mat, yoga tank or fabulous mat bag are perfect gifts. The Energy Mat is a gift that keeps on giving zen moments — stimulation points along the mat help relax and re-energize moms.
Have some fun with yoga gear!
Fun yoga gear is good for more than yoga classes. The cozy yoga socks offer traction during classes but are also the perfect way to keep your polish from smudging after a pedicure. Pretty headbands are useful during workouts but also smooth out even the worst hair mornings.
For women who grab their zen in stolen moments, try a new travel mug — maybe add your favorite teas as a little bonus gift — and a copy of Karma Gone Bad. In her travel memoir, Jenny Feldon takes readers around the world to India, where she realized controlling her surroundings wasn’t nearly as zen-worthy as finding her own happiness. Moms will find their own zen as they sip a warm beverage and fall in love with India through Feldon’s eyes and words.
