Holiday Gifts for the Yogi, Foodie, and Veggie

Posted by: Rita in: ● December 19, 2010

The days until Christmas are numbered and many of us are still stumped about what to get those special yogis and foodies in our lives who seem to have everything they need and want. I’ve got recommendations for you whether your budget is $30 or $500… and if the below ideas don’t tickle your fancy, email me and I’m happy to offer more suggestions!

Under $30:

For the recent vegetarian or just someone interested in changing their diet to be more healthful, check out the Skinny Bitch series… books are always a great pick since it shows you took the time to think about what they’d enjoy reading! Pick one of the series or put together a duo or menage-a-trois such as Skinny Bitch, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch, and Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven!

For the foodie and chocoholic, check out www.vosgeschocolate.com . How can you not LOVE a company who’s slogan is “peace, love, and chocolate” ? I’d encourage you to lean towards the truffles – they have gorgeously wrapped boxes of 9 for $26. If happiness came in a box, I think the Dark Chocolate Truffle Collection, or the La Truffe Chocolat Nature would pretty much be it!

Under $100:

For the yogi, upgrade their most frequently used item – the yoga mat. The Jade Harmony is made in the US of natural rubber and is environmentally friendly. It is also the most slip-resistant mat I’ve found, isn’t too heavy to lug around with you to the studio, and travels well. For around $65, you’ll make their day, and you’ll make their practice every time they use it!

For the foodie, surprise them with a cooking class. Search for one near their home and better yet, sign up to take the class with them, because it is always more fun to play in the kitchen if there’s a friend with you!

Under $500… if you’re really looking to impress…

Send the yogi in your life on the experience of their life by signing them up for a yoga workshop or yoga retreat. Contact a studio in their city and ask them about traveling instructor workshops and/or retreats with some of the biggest names in the yoga world such as Shiva Rea, Steve Ross, Bryan Kest, and Anna Forrest (to name just a few) and sign them up to attend!

For someone serious about healthy eating, there’s no kitchen tool that even compares to a serious blender like the Vitamix or Blendtec. These incredible blenders can basically grind your remote control (OK, don’t try that)… but seriously, they can grind coffee, make nut butters, and raw soups in addition to smoothies and, well, other mixed frozen drinks :-)

So, there you have it. And if you are still at a loss for a gift for the enigma that is this special person, take a hint… get in the car, and get yourself to the nearest lululemon athletica store or showroom, (or www.lululemon.com) and get them ANYTHING. It’ll be a hit.

Happy Holidays!
