Most of us can agree that meditation is good for you. While the activity doesn’t require much more than just silence, there are a few items that can make it more engaging. Here are some gift ideas for meditation enthusiasts in your life.
Buddhist Meditation Mala Beads
Made of 108 beads, as per Buddhist and Hindu tradition, this mala bracelet can enhance your meditation practice in more ways than one. They’re primarily used during recitation or prayer, although they’re also used to keep count of every full breath inhaled or exhaled during a meditation session. They’re also thought to promote self-empowerment, meaningful relationships with others, and a calming and stable sense of vitality.
It’s a thoughtful gift idea that can inspire your friend in their meditation journey.

A Miniature Zen Garden
They might look good in your studio, but Japanese miniature zen gardens can do so much more than that. Stylized with rocks, sand, moss, and other tiny features such as trees, zen gardens have long been regarded as great stress relievers. By recreating the essence of nature, they evoke feelings of tranquillity, calm, and peace, facilitating your mindfulness practice.
This zen garden, in particular, comes in a gift box, and is small enough to fit on a desk or nightstand.

It’s the perfect gift for those who are only just getting started with meditation.

An Acupressure Mat
It might be hard to believe, but this bed of plastic needles was specifically designed for relaxation and pain relief purposes. By lying on it for 10-30 minutes daily, you get to massage pressure points, triggering the release of endorphins and relaxing tight and sore muscles as a result. It’s also said to improve blood circulation and sleep quality, making it a fun present idea for your yogi friend.

A White Noise Machine
Some people find it challenging to quiet the mind in complete silence, which is why many give up on meditation after only a few tries. A solution enjoyed by many is the use of a white noise machine. Soothing sounds, like that of rainfall or ocean waves, can boost your concentration and help you better engage in your meditation practice. In fact, it’s so relaxing that many use it to drift off to sleep.
No matter who you give this portable white noise machine to, they’re bound to fall in love with it.
