The Sustainable, Self-Care Gift Guide 2021: Looking After Yourself, Others, and the Planet

With the festive season approaching, many of us are beginning to think about how we can show our love to those close to us, but it’s important not to forget about the planet – and yourself too!

At YoYoga we’re all about self-love, which is why this Christmas gift guide of eco-friendly essentials has been put together with you in mind. Each of the items included in this list should help you give yourself that extra TLC or make finding that perfect present for your loved one a little less stressful during this often-overwhelming period!

What better gift to give than one of confidence, care, and wellbeing?

1) YoYoga Mat

Naturally, we think that our mats make wonderful gifts. Finding the right mat is essential, as it will not only act as your practice surface but also as a place to help anchor your body and mind. Available in a range of seven vibrant colours (as well as classic black), you can pick the mat that stands out to you. With free carry bag personalisation, a YoYoga mat makes a unique and thoughtful gift idea.

2) S’well Reusable Bottle

Having an attractive water bottle by your side is the best reminder to stay hydrated throughout the day, which is especially important when doing any kind of physical activity. S’well bottles are leakproof and plastic-free, with a variety of sizes and unique designs to choose from. S’well also make insulated bowls, lunch boxes and other kitchen staples in similar designs, so you can maintain your health on the go and build on your collection of reusable essentials over time.

3) LUSH Shampoo Bars

Many of us are familiar with the enticing smell of LUSH cosmetics floating down the high street when approaching one of their stores. Their extensive range of shampoo bars provides cruelty-free options for a variety of hair types, to leave you feeling fresh after a workout and smelling wonderful throughout the day.

4) Pela Phone Case

Watching your fitness videos on your phone or tablet? Make sure it’s protected from your vinyasa or ground-shaking workouts! Pela cases are made from compostable plant materials, creating 80% less waste than the average brand. With the opportunity to choose between quirky patterns or simple colours, there are options available for a variety of devices that are sure to suit every taste.

5) Dock & Bay Travel Towel

Dock & Bay towels are lightweight, quick-drying, and made from 100% recyclable materials, making them the perfect accompaniment to your workout or hot yoga class. Their Essential collection comes in a variety of sizes, with L/XL recommended for use alongside your yoga mat. Like our carry cases, their towels can also be personalised for that special touch.

6) BAM Bamboo Clothing

With all the sports clothing brands available it can be hard to know where to start. When it comes to finding the right leggings, men are often left out of the conversation – making it a difficult task as it is, let alone when searching for the perfect eco-friendly pair! Bamboo Clothing create breathable fitness wear made from sustainable bamboo material for both men and women. Plus, their products come in eco-friendly packaging too.

7) Zero Waste Starter Kit

Just starting out on your sustainable living journey and don’t know where to begin? Or do you want to encourage someone else to make that lifestyle change? This handy bundle of reusable bathroom staples provides all the basics you might need to start reducing waste in your daily life. They also offer eco-friendly, reusable gift wrap for a present that’s ready to go.

8) Hand Me Down Book Club

Taking care of your mind is just as important as taking care of your body, if not more so. This brilliant second-hand book subscription service delivers surprise reads straight to your door in beautiful eco-friendly packaging every month, giving you a little something to help you wind down. You can choose your preferred genre or leave it up to chance for a total surprise. Gifting a subscription is a great way to remind a loved one how special they are every single month, not just at Christmas.

Experience gift: Reset Dorset – Reset Days

One of the most eco-friendly gifts of all is not one that can be wrapped and scrapped, but an experience. Reset Days in Dorset combine fitness classes, nutritious food, inspiring workshops, and beautiful settings to create a full day of wellness intended to help revive the body and the mind. With the purchase of one of our mats, Reset Dorset are currently offering a discount code to buy one Reset Day and get one for half price – a great way to get your loved ones involved, so that you can create lovely new memories together.

At YoYoga, we are lucky enough to work with some wonderful partners who share our ambition to support our community in their wellbeing journey. You can find exclusive discounts for each of their incredible services with the purchase of one of our mats (not just Reset Days!).

We hope that, as a YoYoga community, we can help each other to take care of ourselves, others, and the planet. If you have any other eco-friendly, self-care gift ideas, please tag us on Facebook or Instagram so that we can share them for all to see! #MyYoYoga
