Have you heard the joke about the only thing the yoga teacher wanted for their birthday? “Just your presence.”
Both presents and presence exist in each adoringly cultivated yoga gift box. There’s a whole lot more than the contents inside.
A yoga gift box means all of your shopping is done
I mean, if you dig shopping more than breathing, that might not be great news. But if you’re a pretty typical holiday shopper who feels a bit overwhelmed by the whole process, then we’ve got you. The lucky yoga lover in your life knows when they open your gift that you know them well and you want to remind them every month that they are loved.
Sharing a yoga gift box with others is a delightful part of the joy
Last month, when I opened my gift box and saw the cute purple yoga sox with tread on the bottoms, I knew exactly who would be getting them. Amy, I know you’ll be wearing them every practice and it makes me smile to think about how much you appreciate them. There’s something for everyone in each yoga gift box. We all know a crystals lover. And each of us has that friend who lives for mala beads.
Give a yoga gift box to a couple of friends to enjoy together
If you have two friends whom you know would love a monthly yoga gift box, you could even purchase one for them to share. It would give them the perfect reason to connect each month and explore the contents of the box together, discussing how best to enjoy them in their practice. They will also undoubtedly find items they can collectively gift to other friends, increasing the web of sharing.
We all love receiving gifts in the mail
Each time the Yogi Surprise yoga gift boxes show up at my door, that dopamine hit never fails. It’s exciting to know that you don’t know exactly what new interests and passions the contents will provoke. Ever since the boxes started to arrive, our home is never without burning incense. Meditation has become part of our daily life. And self-care is now a clutch component for a day well-spent.
Receiving a monthly yoga gift box encourages positive feelings with far-reaching effects
While you’re in the process of exploring your yoga gift box or witnessing a loved one enjoy theirs, excitement, generosity, thoughtfulness, and curiosity come alive. These feelings are so contagious. The first time I opened a box, I immediately made a list of others whom I knew would really appreciate it. It feels thrilling to give loved ones something we know will bring them joy and elicit the above-listed feelings in them too.
I was discussing The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman with a student yesterday. These love languages include (in no particular order): time spent, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, and physical affection. The student remarked that gifts are her number one love language. She said when she receives a gift and it’s clear someone really thought about her interests and passions, it fills her cup to an overflowing level. It’s a lovely way to feel and observe in others.
You have many gift box options
We also have a specifically curated box for men. The number of men practicing yoga in the United States continues to grow yearly. And we see you men and want to support your specific needs within the wide lens scope of the practice.
We are so looking forward to enjoying the holiday spirit of giving and receiving with you this year.
