As a small company run entirely by Yoga teachers and wellness bunnies, we have a long wish list of eco-centric (or course) athleisure, holistic, fitness and wellness-related pressies that we're all dying to get our hands on. So here is our all time Yoga inspired top Christmas gifts for 2020, compiled by Kin founder, senior Yoga teacher Laura Pearce:
1) - A Kin Skinny Travel mat
Of course we know a Yogi's best friend is their mat, and the Skinny travel mat is foldable, packable, and styled with beautiful, unique, ethereal surface designs. This Yoga mat is guaranteed to inspire and enthral.
2) - The Greatest Leggings - Girlfriend Collective
Second only to your Yoga mat are the best Yoga leggings. Sexy, supportive, and made entirely from recycled plastic bottles. We love this innovative brand and their fabulous real models.
3) - On Running Shoes
Our new favourite running shoes, we particularly like their trail runners & hiking shoes- the only hiking shoes, in our humble opinion, that are super stylish! Who says you have to sacrifice style for performance??
4) - Chattra Yoga Meditation Cushions
The most beautiful, vibrant, unique Yoga props we've seen, created by artisans in India, we love these cushions, and we think they'd look gorgeous paired with Kin Yoga Mat Halcyon dreams collection...
5) - Our Place Everything Pan
A little off piste BUT... Not just beautiful. Not just functional (this 'all-in-one' replaces at least 8 other Kitchen pots & pans). But also non-toxic and non-stick, with a ceramic coating made without potentially toxic materials like PFOAs, PTFEs, other PFAs, lead, cadmium, toxic metals, and nanoparticles. LOVE.
6) - Poppy's Papercuts the Book
For a super funky, unique, inspiring take on crafts this year, grab a copy of Cut It Out, by mega babe and influencer @poppyspapercuts . Hours of creativity and relaxation await you!
7) - Ullo Wine Purifier
Because even us wellness bunnies like a good, CLEAN glass of wine, this nifty machine removes sulphites and sediments, and aerates your vino for enhanced flavour.
8) - Jilla Active Sports Bra
These bras are really gorgeous, and actually comfortable. Don't expect high impact hold (these are ideal for yoga, and mooching about the house) but as a 32D boob owner, I can confirm they comfortably secure even a more ample bosom. They're also pretty flattering - I often wear mine out on a night out!
9) - The Loop Eye Pillow from Ostrich Pillow
For ultimate eye mask technology, try this total black out, super cosy eye 'loop'. Not just great for meditation and Nidra practices, but also perfect for travel and long haul flights!
10) - Selenite Charging Plate by Heritage Apothecary (on Etsy)
For the crystal lover in your life, selenite plates are what you use to purify all other crystals (and your aura...) so if you're unsure what crystal to gift, this is the perfect addition to their collection. I found these guys on Etsy, and they have a beautiful collection, check it out!
