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 21 Yoga Gifts for Men (and Women) for 2021 - 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).
21 Yoga Gifts for Men (and Women) for 2021
For So We Flow... Loyalists
Pre-order projects are our fresh perspective on crowdfunding. As a small company it’s difficult to fund all our product ideas. But we know that if we pre-sell a minimum number of products, then we can bring our ideas to life, get a great discount from our suppliers, and pass that onto you.
It’s simple - we bring a new So We Flow… product up to the prototype stage and launch at a discounted price. Each crowdfunding project runs until we sell the required number of products to kick off production. Once we’ve reached that number, the projects closes, we produce the items and deliver them directly to you.
The quicker we reach our target the quicker we can get started on production. It varies depending on the product but generally takes 60-100 days to produce and deliver. Purchasing this way means you get a great product at a great price - plus you have a say in what products come next and how they are created.
Our first project is an old favourite - the Honest Yoga Mat - handwoven in organic cotton and dyed with locally grown Ayurvedic herbs. Our community has been requesting we bring this back again and again.
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.
Serious and dedicated about taste and change-making, they champion originality from their bodywork to their aroma-crafting, always adhering to our rule of being meticulous about simplicity. Simply put, amongst the best places to get a massage in London.
For Those That Are Active On & Off the Mat
At So We Flow... we pride ourselves in making movement and yoga clothing that not only works when active, but looks and feels incredible in day-to-day. Our Twill Longs are no exception. We took the fundamental principals of the ideal trouser, and refashioned with movement in mind. Functionality, comfort and durability - in equal measure. Made from a blend of organic cotton and a pinch of elastane, the crotch panelling and elasticated drawstring waist provide freedom of movement that a traditional trouser, jean or chino fails to achieve.
Ever had the urge to downward dog out and about? We've got you covered.
Our Twill Longs come in 4 colours - Beluga, Olive, Bark and Indigo. 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
Alo Moves is an online yoga video platform that is both a website and free mobile app. They offer a wide range yoga series from world-class instructors and have an engaged online community to support you in your yoga journey.

They bring you the best from their fields and farmers every week, so there’s always something new to try.
You could also try looking for local veg box suppliers, Jake (the So We Flow... founder) gets his from the Cornish Food Box Company.

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.
For Men That Wear Shorts in the Winter
We might go as far as saying these are the ultimate men's movement shorts. Yoga, climbing or out and about - our Easy Shorts can handle wherever life takes you. Cut from pre-washed, stretch organic cotton, with reinforced seams and functional crotch panelling. And to top it off, a drawcord repurposed from cotton offcuts.
For Those That Love a Challenge
