There are a lot of ways to incorporate mindfulness into your life, and sometimes that means buying mindfulness and meditation gifts. These meditation gifts can help you or someone in your life who is trying to be more mindful and bring more peace into their lives.
There are a lot of meditation gifts and ideas out there that may seem to promote mindfulness. However, you should but be wary of the ones that disrespect another spiritual practice – and only have the intent of making a quick buck. Instead, buy these meditation gifts that actually enhance and support your spiritual practice and the origins it was derived from. These are some of the best meditation gifts to buy someone… or yourself.

1. Incense Sticks Bundle
Incense sticks are a great gift that enhances your meditation practice. In Ayurveda, we learn that every one of our 5 senses affects who we are and reflects the state of our bodies.
Aromatherapy is a huge concept in Ayurvedic and Yogic studies because it almost instantaneously stimulates the part of the brain and causes a reaction. Based on the type of person you are, choosing the right fragrance is key.
This bundle of incense sticks has varying fragrances that pacify or calm anyone. Add this to a meditation gift basket and you’re set!
2. Meditation Pouf Pillow
Meditation poufs are such a great room enhancer. Choose one that is comfortable and that fits in with your personality. If you are buying this as a meditation or spiritual practice gift for a friend, find out what colors they like first. Some of the colors may have a negative impact for people who subconsciously do not resonate with.
I love the options that come directly from India or Thailand. However, those are not as easy to get if you live in the U.S. Amazon does carry a variety of poufs that you can choose from.
One of my favorites is this brightly colored vintage pouf (from India) that brings me joy just to look at it.
3. Mala Beads
Mala beads are another great option for a gift to yourself or your loved one. If someone is starting out with their mediation practice and needs some help with chanting their mantras, mala beads have to be the best meditation gift you can give them.
Not only do they have a great purpose, but they are also a visual reminder that universal energy is near and within you. The beads represent wholeness, which reflects the oneness of who we are.
Rudhraksha beads are the most popular in Southern India for those on a spiritual journey. They are also very inexpensive.
4. Meditation Singing Bowls
Oh how I love the sound of a good singing bowl. I have this Buddha singing bowl that I purchased on Amazon, and it has a very pleasant tune. Like all singing bowls, there is a skill to get them going, but once you do, everything vibrating around you tends to quiet down.
They are used in Feng Shui as a way to remove negative energies from a room. They are so pretty to look at and can be used as a display piece in your home too. I have mine displayed in my display unit.
5. Meditation Blankets
Who knew they made meditation blankets? Not me. Until I found this blanket one that I use when I practice Yoga Nidra. This is a comfy blanket that is not too light but not too heavy either.
It’s just perfect enough to cover if you get cold during your meditation. You can just lay it on the couch after you finish your meditation – as a room enhancer. Or it could be taped to a wall as a piece of wall art too.
Mediation blankets are a great gift for people who are starting the practice of meditation, or who are aficionados in the yogic world. Either way, this is a great gift for anyone, even yourself.
6. Meditation Chairs
This meditation gift is kinda large and in charge. And it’s a great gift! People who have backaches or find it difficult to sit in the lotus pose for a long time, will find these meditation chairs a godsend.
There are so many options that focus on different aspects or problem areas, so it’s a good idea to find out what your loved one needs before purchasing one for them. I have this one, but I have an article that you can read that offers multiple other options based on specific needs. The article details much more than I can state here. Read it to find out more.
7. Horoscope Crystal Box Set
These astrology sign based crystal box sets are an AMAZING meditation gift for your yogic friend. Crystals are said to heal and clear negative energies, but getting the right crystals for you can be a challenge.
These box sets are specifically put together with that in mind. There are 6 crystals in each set and they work with your astrological sign. Great as a birthday gift for that yogi friend of yours, or any other time of the year too. This is a great option for a Christmas stocking stuffer too!
8. Mini Zen Garden
Zen gardens made for your desk are an efficient way to soothe anyone. And they make a great meditation present for anyone who needs a little zen throughout the day. The act of raking through the sand and working on placing the objects in the sand is a slow and calming activity for your mind. It’s a sure way to relieve some stress during the day. Definitely a meditation gift for you and your loved ones.
There are a ton of options available on Amazon (and elsewhere online) to buy from, but this one from Lots of Zen, is great. It is really cute, inexpensive, and has a 5 star rating on Amazon too.
9. Buddha Puzzles
Who doesn’t love a good 520 piece puzzle? This is not anything directly related to meditation, but its still a fun piece as a gift for any occasion.
This specific Buddha jigsaw puzzle is great for those who practice or revere Buddha as it reveals a golden Buddha in his sitting position, when all the pieces are put together.
This is a fun activity to do with the family and a great gift even though its not directly related to the act of meditation. At least it provides something else for an active mind to focus on. Win-win.
10. Buddha Water Boards
Buddha boards are a great activity gift for mindfulness. They bring you back into the present moment while giving you mind and hands something to do too. This is a water board that when dry, all the strokes of the brush disappear.
This is an amazing tool to let go of a lot of what is bothering you in a day. Write it out or paint it and watch it all fly away from your space. Let it go.
11. Adult Coloring Book
Coloring books are not only for kids. These adult coloring books are made for those who need to get out of their head and focus on something calming and beautiful.
These intricate patterns make you focus on what you are doing and leave the stress behind you. This one has won a lot of bestseller awards too. Get this coloring book today as a gift to yourself, your loved ones, or everybody.
12. Practicing Mindfulness: 75 Essential Meditations Book
This book is a compilation of 75 great meditative sessions and practices that can work together on your journey. Practice the easy ones multiple times or move on to the more challenging ones. Do any of them, in any order. And do it when you want to, and in your own time. This book does come in audio format – which I thin should be the preferred format since it makes it easier to follow along.
13. Tabletop Water Fountain
The indoor meditation water fountains are a great meditation gift to give anyone. It is also great to center the room with its calming water flowing sounds. Many spas and massage parlors have these indoor waterfalls because it is tranquil and immediately brings a sense of calm to you mind and body. The cobblestones add another layer of soothing you. A great addition to a home or an office desk to cut the stress.
14. Healing Crystals Hanging Ornament
This 7 chakra healing ornament can be hung in your home, or meditation room, office, or anywhere you like. These are healing reiki crystals that claim to bring healing, good luck, prosperity, and fortune to your home.
This is a great gift for any occasion, including birthdays and housewarming, or just a thoughtful gift for someone you love. Get this gift for yourself too and hang it in your car, room, or office.
There are other options based on what you need, but the 7 chakra ornament is balancing to all chakras. Kinda like a one size fits all.
15. Energy Generator Pyramids
The orgone pyramid crystal generator is meant to filter and balance out the energies that surround you and your home. The generator acts kind of like an absorber of negative energies from around it and transforms and “pushes” out positive energy into your space.
Hey, whether it works or not, it’s an amazing looking object that just makes me feel good when I look at it. And if it works, then that’s even better. Give this mindfulness gift idea a shot and see what you think.
