Best Mindfulness Gifts To Give This Holiday Season

Christmas gifts wrapped in red, gold and white paper

It’s no secret that the holidays can be a very stressful time of year. For many of us, the holidays can intensify our anxiety as we face additional demands on our money, time, and patience. This year support those you love by giving a gift that will help them de-stress and improve their overall well-being while showing that you really care.

I’ve put together a collection of holiday gift ideas that are all about bringing peace and joy to the ones you love. These products can complement your loved ones (or your own) existing mindfulness practice or help them jump-start a new one. And, they’re less likely to end up unused in a landfill somewhere.

By the way, I am not an affiliate partner of any of these companies or their products. Read on for my favorite picks for the best mindfulness gifts this holiday season.

Experience Gifts (for lasting memories)

Sometimes the best gifts don’t come in a box or a gift bag. One of the most mindful ways to gift is to give them an experience that will provide lasting memories or help them fulfill a bucket list item. It’s a fun, creative, and sustainable way to let them know you care.

You can give an elaborate adventure package or keep it as simple as offering to babysit so they can enjoy a night out.

Below you’ll find some suggestions for awesome experiences you can gift your loved one.

Experience Gifts for Him

Wrigley Field baseball stadium with a full crowd

Sports – Get him tickets to see his favorite team. Maybe he wants to tour the major league ballparks throughout the country or enjoy some spring training games. If he’s a golfer, golf lessons or a trip to a PGA event would make an excellent gift.

Music – Consider getting him tickets when his favorite band comes to town. Perhaps even a night out or a weekend away if the concert is out of town. If he’s always wanted to learn to play an instrument, get him a gift certificate for lessons.

Outdoor adventures – Scuba diving, whitewater rafting, fly fishing, skiing, paragliding, caving, and rock climbing. If you have an outdoorsman in your life, he will surely appreciate the chance to do what he loves in the great outdoors.

Distillery tour – Bourbon, rum, and whiskey tours are so much fun. They’re especially fun with another couple or a group of friends. You learn a lot and they usually offer samples or the chance to buy a bottle at a discount. Winery tours are also a great option.

Comedy Show – If your man loves nothing more than having a good laugh, why not get him tickets to see his favorite comedian the next time they’re in town? What could be better than a fun night out filled with laughter?!

Experience Gifts for Her

Spa or Salon Services  – A gift certificate to her favorite salon or spa so she can get a luxurious massage, mani/pedi, or a great cut and color is an excellent gift choice for the gal who is always caring for everyone else.

Fitness membership – If she has expressed interest in a yoga, pilates, or fitness class, get her a membership and make sure she has the time to use it.

Yoga or meditation retreat – A few days spent at a retreat (alone or with a close friend) could be just what she needs to recharge her body, mind, and spirit.

Dance lessons – Whether she’s always wanted to learn the tango or how to swing dance, dance lessons are a great way to get fit and have a blast. You’ll get bonus points if you go along and learn as a couple.

Online or In-Person Classes – Is there something she’d like to learn? Chances are, there’s an online or in-person class that offers it. Uncommon Goods offers several wonderful online experience classes. Or, give her a MasterClass membership which includes access to an incredible catalog of 180+ classes taught by the world’s best on cooking, photography, writing, and more.
