In a World of domineering consumerism and overconsumption, we should be buying less, better things, that last longer. This couldn't ring more true during the numerous gift giving periods we encounter throughout the year. Fortunately, gifts that encourage movement, sustainability, wellness and recovery are those that keep on giving.
We've put together a diverse list of 19 Yoga Gifts for Men (and Women) for 2022 - from humble to grand - that will hopefully inspire, encourage and preserve a robust and enduring relationship with not only yoga but movement in general, wellness and self-care (plus a little fun for good measure).
19 Yoga Gifts for Men (and Women) for 2022
For Something Truly Special
Our Honest Yoga Mat is made from 100% organic cotton with a natural rubber weave on the base. Each is made entirely by hand - using an age-old technique that takes 8-10 days per mat - representing artistry of the highest degree. Dyed with incredible smelling, locally-grown Ayurvedic herbs - these impart antiseptic, cleansing and calming properties into the fabric to enhance your practice. Furthermore, the entire process is solar-powered and uses only rain harvested water. Any wastewater is returned to the soil to grow crops.
This mat is so much more than the mat itself and what goes into it. It is part of supporting an entire community from farmers to artisans to drivers.
This is a gift that is not only an incredible product, but one that supports a traditional skill, a local community and the environment - in an industry (yoga mats) that is notorious for using energy intensive processes, harsh chemicals and unsustainable materials.
For Those That Need To Relax
MASAJ is a contemporary wellness brand and massage studio designed to combat the negative effects of city living. A place to hold you; both at home and in their London studios.

For Those That Are Active On & Off the Mat
Our Flow Trousers - loved not only for the complete freedom of movement they offer but their boundless versatility - have become a wardrobe staple.
From active to casual and everything in between, our Flow Trousers are valued for their functionality - which never comes at the expense of versatility and good looks.

Ever had the urge to run, jump, flip, twist or squat when out and about? We've got you covered.
The dying process we use means they will naturally fade with wear in all the right places to look and feel even better. Don't be precious with them - wear often!
For Those That Want To Learn
All forms of yoga can provide benefits physically, emotionally, and mentally, however Yin Yoga works the deeper levels of the body/heart/mind: the yin tissues of fascia, tendons, ligaments, joints and bones, as well as the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. One big difference noticed by students of Yin Yoga is the long-held, passive nature of the posture, which gives time for a deeper journey to unfold, a journey into the meditative aspects of yoga, a bridge to living life mindfully.
For Those That Practice at Home

For Getting a Lot Out of a Little
When used for trigger-point therapy, massage, or self-myofascial release, a lacrosse ball helps break up the connective tissue and fascia surrounding your muscles and organs that can get rigid from lots of sitting or exercising. But what sets it apart from a foam roller is its ability to loosen up tough-to-reach spots and get deep, real deep. It is without a doubt the best tool for the money any active person can own. We go everywhere with it and use it daily.
For a Beautiful Stocking Filler
Our Rock & Roll On set contains all three of our essential oil blends:
- Ignite: Black Pepper, Pine, Rosemary & Lemongrass
- Focus: Lime, Peppermint & Basil
- Unwind: Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli & Sweet Orange
They're completely natural - with pure essential oils and skin-friendly jojoba and coconut oil. Keep handy at all times and apply to your pulse points throughout the day when needed or to enhance your yoga practice. And if all else fails, they smell great...
For Those That Need a Detox
CPRESS's seven-day, 100% organic juice cleanse is recommended for those experienced in juice cleansing and periods of fasting in general. If you're interested in starting a seven-day cleanse then preparation beforehand is essential in order to ease yourself into the cleanse and not shock your system too much. Generally speaking, if you already follow a largely plant-based and organic diet then you should be better positioned to tackle this cleanse. Otherwise, begin to limit sources of toxicity from your diet and lifestyle for at least three days before you start this cleanse. This cleanse should leave you feeling lighter, refreshed, accomplished (well done for finishing a 7 day cleanse!), and fully balanced after giving your digestion a rest and freeing up energy to be expended elsewhere; in the elimination of toxins from your body and in the production of energy.
