Editor's Gift Picks 2020

November 23, 2020

You want your gift to be meaningful and useful to your loved one (or yourself!), but maybe you're unsure of which direction to go. This holiday season, gifting self-care items could be a perfect way to wrap up 2020. From tools for furthering a loved one's practice, or just for feeling cozy, here are my holiday gift picks for 2020. Happy Holidays!

Stocking Stuffers Under $30

Massage Balls

I am a huge fan of massage balls! I wrote an article on How to Use Massage Balls, because they have been my favorite self-care tool this past year.

Halfmoon's Natural Cork Massage Ball Trio: Comes with two unique sizes of all natural cork balls so you can self-heal those sore spots, increase circulation, and calm your nervous system.

Halfmoon's Pressure Point Massage Balls: Uniform in size with small sensory spikes to target acupressure points, offer myofascial release, and promote circulation.

Eye Pillows

A great tool for calming the body and mind. Not only are eye pillows a great addition to a restorative yoga or meditation practice, they can be used to relieve headaches, invite calm, or as an addition to your loved one's sleep hygiene routine.

SamYoga's Lavender Eye Pillow:Handmade in Canada, these eye pillows are filled with dried lavenders and flax seed filling. Can be placed in the freezer or microwave. Available in 4 patterns.

Hugger Mugger's Silk Eye Pillow: The organic flax filling is unscented for those who are sensitive to scents or would like to customize their aroma therapy experience. Available in 2 colors.

Smudge Sticks and Incense

We source our smudge stick and incense collection from Shamans Market, a company that responsibly and sustainably harvests their ingredients. Sage has been used by indigenous peoples in the Americas for centuries for the purpose of cleansing oneself or a space.

White Sage Smudge Stick: The broad leaf gives a strong aromatic smell that can also be used to soothe, calm anxiety, and lessen stress.

Black Sage Mini Stick: Typically used for introspection and inner healing, burning this sage can also be used as an insect repellent.

Yoga Straps

There are two types of yoga straps, one specifically for carrying your yoga mat and the other for deepening yoga postures (although there is a way to use it to carry your mat around also). You can check out our article: How To Use Straps.

Halfmoon's Cotton Loop Yoga Strap: Made with a fixed loop on the end for more versatility. For deepening leg stretches without worrying about slippage! Slide buckle is made with brushed nickel.

Manduka's Commuter Mat Carrier: For your yogi that takes their mat with them everywhere. The padded shoulder strap is especially handy.
