There are so many reasons to be in love with Ayurveda…
Hi! Giving gifts is one of my love languages. So I love the end of the holiday season – when there are so many ways and reasons to give.
With the holidays right around the corner now, I bet your wheels are turning over what kind of gifts you’ll give this year. The season of gift shopping is upon us, after all!
Choosing “the most awesome presents ever!” might not come naturally to you. So I want to help you pick out presents the people you shop for will love.
If there’s a yoga lover, wellness seeker, or Ayurveda enthusiast in your life and you want to find the perfect present for him or her, I’m here to help!
I’ve gathered the best natural holiday gift ideas I could think of.
And I’ve stocked my proverbial stocking with a variety of goodies any healthy lifestyle fanatic will freak for (and be so happy to receive).
I promise you’ll find something for every health-conscious loved one on your shopping list with my yoga and Ayurveda-inspired gift ideas! I believe that showing interest in their wishes, dreams, and goals is such a beautiful gesture of love.
So thanks for reading this and making an effort to learn! It really means a lot.
NOTE: If YOU’RE the one crazy for Ayurveda… forward this guide to the people who love you! Make it easy on them and let them know what you want! : )
Eighteen years into a life-long obsession with Ayurveda, I spend most of my days drowning in Ayurvedic goodness. Plus, I’ve been a yoga devotee since 1993! So trust that I’m well versed at giving yoga and Ayurveda as gifts.
Let’s keep things simple, real, and awesome. Without further ado, here are the best gift ideas for your favorite yoga and Ayurveda enthusiasts in 2019!
Ghee is a “superfood” of Ayurvedic nutrition, overflowing with health benefits. Also known as clarified butter, ghee is clean, sweet, warm and light to taste. You use it exactly as you would butter and it stores at room temperature. Find it here!
We’ve got a couple of herbal coffee alternatives we love at Ayurveda Every Day With Talya…
Coffee Fix is a rich, full-bodied, instant herbal coffee substitute. With gorgeous warmth and flavor (minus the caffeine, acidity, or bitterness) it offers the convenience and gratification of an instant, hot water-soluble beverage. Just add hot water and it’s ready!
RASA Koffee is our other favorite way to upgrade a morning coffee ritual, enjoy calm energy, boost stress resilience, and feel more awesome overall! RASA is a delicious adaptogenic herbal “coffee” that’s packed with great-tasting adaptogenic (i.e. adrenal-loving) herbs.
When you practice Ayurveda, you quickly learn how important it is to keep your body moving and your lymphatic fluids healthy. How does one do that, you ask? With sacred self-massage tools!
Whether it’s with a Dry Brush, Gua Sha, Kansa Wand, FasciaBlasterTM, or Warm Oil Abhyanga, sacred self-massage tools go SO far when it comes to maintaining excellent health – especially as we move into the heaviest season of the year – winter.
When it comes time to change and upgrade your diet, if you don’t know how to prepare the food that Ayurveda recommends, you’re at a stop. No-fuss Ayurvedic cookbooks make it no-excuses and super easy to live the Ayurvedic lifestyle through food.
Every Ayurveda enthusiast should have this book! Cooking really is the art of Ayurveda. And of course, that’s wrapped up with the lifestyle. Ayurveda is a life science and a lifestyle.
A must for any all-natural first aid kit, Nasya Oil is a blend of ghee (clarified butter), sesame oil, garlic, and ginger. The one I make is warming, immune-boosting, and deeply protective.
Nasya oil lubricates nasal mucous membranes, helps relieve dryness and removes obstacles that may be the cause of frequent allergies and head colds. It’s a great preventative remedy to use while camping or when spending time in polluted, dusty, smoky, high-allergen areas.
Sometimes spelled Chyavanprash – this an herbal Ayurvedic “Rasayana” or herbal jam on the top of any Ayurveda enthusiast’s list of “must try.” Fun fact: Rasayanas are how herbs are traditionally prepared and preserved in Ayurvedic medicine!
“The word Rasayana literally means, “any substance that helps to bring about the rejuvenation of your youthful mental and physical energy.” – Ayurvedic Rasyanas. And that’s what Ayurvedic living is all about!
My favorite Chyawanprash contains a giant handful of immune-boosting, rejuvenating herbs that stimulate metabolism and ignite healthy digestive fire – without aggravating fiery constitutions. I think of Chyawanprash as a tridoshic, stress-relieving, adaptogenic jam.
It’s truly delicious on toast or in tea!
Love is the greatest gift you can give. You know you’re showing big love when you give the gift of health and Ayurveda! Your loved one can redeem an Ayurveda Every Day With Talya Gift Card for anything in my Ayurveda shop. Available in $25 increments.
When you give from your heart, you’re golden. When you give the gift of health and wellness, your recipient is golden, too!
Giving the gift of health is a powerful message that says you really care. It’s also a lovely way to thank people in your life who make a difference for you – and it helps them stick around longer, too.
Let your loved ones know you appreciate them this year and give them the gift of health and self-care. Happy Holidays from Ayurveda Every Day With Talya!
