The holiday season is here and chances are right about now you are freaking out about what to give someone special in your life.
Personally, I love to give gifts but in recent years I have shifted my approach to both giving and receiving. With two little one's in our lives, Steve and I have become much more discerning about what we bring into our home, trying to avoid a wasteland of toys our kids never play with or impractical clothing they never wear. I talk about it a little bit in my podcast this week.
In our relationship too, we have new standard for exchanging presents.
For me the ideal gift is some combination of:
- functional (aka. something that we needed or makes our lives easier)
- beautiful (aka. art or something that looks nice in my home or on me)
- experiential (concert tickets, spa treatments, a full night of sleep)
These things need not be expensive but certainly call for a bit more creativity. And when I speak to other yogi's I hear that many of them feel the same.
So here are a few ideas for the different yogi's in your life from my personal shopping list this year
