#2 A meditation retreat


If you are looking for the best mindfulness gifts for meditation lovers who also love traveling, then this is by far the best gift.

A meditation retreat or meditation experience from Viator or Book Retreats.

You can find meditation activities in pretty much any country on both sites. For example, a yoga retreat in Chiang Mai or meditation and healing sessions in Sedona. You can find all types of mindfulness practices, from yoga to tantra, and from meditation to chakra healing. It’s the ultimate experience gift for mindfulness enthusiasts.

Then this box with chakra healing stones is the gift you need. It can be a great gift for meditators who just started out as well as for awakened souls. And to make this gift even better, you can also pair it with one of the online crystal healing courses on Udemy.

Did you know there’s a simple yet fun way to meditate? The finger-tracing technique is good for breathing exercises and mindful practices.

And what better way to meditate than whilst drinking coffee or tea? A great way to start or finish a day!

If your friend is anything like Phoebe Buffay (Yep, the one and only!) then this gift will be perfect!

#8 Zen garden kit

A Buddhist monk in Japan created the first Zen gardens, also known as Karesansui gardens which translates to dry landscapes. Interestingly, people don’t use these gardens for walking or planting like regular ones.

Zen gardens already serve as a form of meditation in itself. Just raking the gravel into patterns helps clear the mind, allowing us to find inner peace.

It’s simple yet its purpose is unique as it emphasizes mindfulness and tranquility. It truly makes a wonderful gift for mindfulness enthusiasts.


#9 Relaxation tea

Breathing techniques can serve as the bridge between our minds and body when meditating and what’s better than having a cup of tea that will go along well with that?

This “breathe” blend is the perfect zen gift you can give your meditation lover friends who want to relax and be zen with a warm cuppa.


#10 Monthly chakra box

What better way to support your friends’ spiritual journey than gifting them a monthly subscription to a chakra box?

This gift goes beyond meditation and offers a lot more than just books or information. It includes herbal teas, organic aromatherapy, crystals, and gemstones for chakra healing – things that will benefit their overall well-being from body, mind, and spirit.


Zen gifts for mid-budget

If you are looking for the best meditation gifts for people who love nature and being outdoors, then this nature meditation deck of cards is the gift you are looking for.

The deck includes cards that can help the recipient find inner peace. There are four different types of cards in this deck.

Nature meditations, these cards include meditation assignments that can be done in nature or that include a message we can learn from nature.

Walking thoughts, this category includes questions to help the recipient think about things that truly matter in life.

Messages from the earth are cards that share Mother Earth’s wisdom.

And lastly, strengthening affirmations include cards to create a strong mindset.


#12 Mindful breathing necklace

This necklace is not just a beautiful piece of jewelry, it also has a beautiful purpose. The necklace is designed by a psychotherapist to help the wearer relax.

How?

By using the necklace as a breathing straw. When feeling stressed the recipient can breathe in normally and then breathe out using the straw. This produces a soothing sound and helps the recipient to breathe slowly, which reduces stress.

So if you are looking for thoughtful meditation gifts for her, this breathing necklace is a great idea.


#13 Mindfulness membership

If you are not familiar with Headspace, it’s an incredibly popular and powerful meditation App. So if you would like to give someone the gift of a calm mind, then a Headspace membership is what you need.

Depending on your budget for these mindfulness gifts, you can go for a one-year or a one-month Headspace subscription gift.


#14 Tibetan singing bowl

I have also shared this Tibetan singing bowl in my Nepal gift guide because they are widely used in different Buddhist countries.

A singing bowl is a type of musical instrument that is often used in meditation, prayers, yoga, and healing. So if you are looking for gifts for people who meditate and who love to guide meditations too, then this is a great option.

To make this gift even better, you can add an online course from Udemy so the recipient knows how to use the instrument for healing or meditation.


#15 Book about the science behind meditation

This book reveals new research about what meditation can truly do for us and how we can get the most out of it.

You might think this would be of no use to your friends who love meditation (I’m sure they know more about the benefits of meditation than any of us) but with this book, they’ll finally have science to back them up, plus, they might even learn something new!


#16 Funny meditation sign

After all, meditation kinda sounds like serious business but with this clever and amusing sign, they will see things a little lighter with a little bit of a humorous perspective on the side.

With this, they’ll be much more relaxed through their spiritual journey.

Did you know that smell is strongly linked to the areas in our brain that are involved in emotion, learning, and even memory?

I’m sure you’ve experienced having flashbacks or the feeling of nostalgia when you smell something specific, like how the smell of freshly cut grass makes us think of summer or how the smell of some food makes us remember and miss home.

And that’s why aromatherapy has a lot of benefits, such as relieving stress and anxiety, improving sleep, and enhancing mood are only some of the many.

This herbal-scented candle is surely a thoughtful gift for your friends to set the intention for their meditations.


#20 Yoga travel guide

Meditation lovers may love the zen and calm feeling they get from meditation, but they are also human and sometimes need a hot coffee.

So if you are looking for gifts for people who meditate and who love coffee, the 981 different meditation-themed mugs on Zazzle are what you need.

And if you are looking for meditation gift ideas for people who are interested in chakras, then the “Be Open” mug is perfect.


#23 Mala bead necklace

Mala bead necklaces are a type of jewelry that can be used during meditation. They are often worn by Buddhist monks in Tibet, Nepal, and other countries where Buddhism is common.

The necklace helps the wearer to stay focused during meditation. The idea is that with every breath in and out or with every mantra, the recipient passes one bead through their fingers. The repetitive motion helps to prevent the mind from wandering off.

But besides being a practical tool to guide meditation, it’s also a beautiful piece of jewelry. And this makes it one of the best for someone who meditates in multiple ways.


Zen gifts for small budgets
