14 Mindful Christmas Gifts for Peace and Calm

14 Mindful Christmas Gifts for Peace and Calm

Christmas is well and truly upon us and it’s that time of the year we are inundated with Christmas adverts, dos and fairs. I am here to help you find mindful Christmas gifts for your loved ones.

You heard me right, I did say mindful Christmas gifts. Mindful gift-giving is not about how much we spend, how many and how big our gifts are, or if they’re the latest most trendy items. Mindful gift-giving is an act of gratitude and caring, and fortunately, it doesn’t need to be complicated! Phew!

Being more mindful about gift choices can make the whole experience more joyful, heartfelt, and meaningful to everyone involved. Here are my top 14 mindful Christmas gifts whose sparkle will last long after the baubles have been packed away for another year:

Gift Pick #1 – Deck of Affirmation Cards

Give the gift of positivity! There are so many unique and inspiring decks to offer guidance and help to find strength when you are down, synchronicity and support when you are lost, safety in the face of uncertainty, and joy in all circumstances.

Gift Pick #2 – Mindful & Gratitude Journal Book

A gift to inspire and encourage your loved ones to build a more positive outlook on life.

Gift Pick #3 – Set of Singing Bowls

This is an ace for someone who is passionate about sound healing. Buddhist monks have long used Tibetian singing bowls in meditation practice as they are said to promote relaxation and offer powerful healing properties. In addition, some wellness practitioners, massage therapists, and yoga teachers use singing bowls during treatment.

Gift Pick #4 – Meditation Bundle

There are so many benefits of meditation, what this practice can do for your mind, body, and soul. Giving someone the gift to focus on their mind each day can reduce stress, pain, depression, and more. Look for your options here.

Gift Pick #5 – Mindful Coloring Book

A simple and fun way to positively boost mental health, reduce anxiety and stress.

Gift Pick # 6 – A Plant

Not only do plants as gifts outlast the occasion, they’re also a thoughtful way to express your best intention and wishes beyond their good looks. Plants improve the quality of air we breathe and the quality of life overall. What’s not to love?

Gift Pick #7 – Mala Beads

Like Rosary beads, Mala beads can be used during any mindful meditation to help with spatial awareness. You can learn more about Mala Beads from here.

Gift Pick #8 – Tea Set

There is nothing better than sipping a cuppa tea. Even the idea of it is soul-satisying!

Gift Pick #9 – Inspirational Books

No matter who you’re gifting – a friend, partner, mentor, or colleague – a carefully chosen book can be a great gift. It’s a way to connect with others over a shared interest, show them you’ve put thought into your gift and give them an opportunity to learn and grow.

Gift Pick #10 – Yoga Class Pack

If your giftee practices yoga, find out their favorite studio and gift them a class pack. Online or in the studio!

Gift Pick #11 – Essential Oils

Giving essential oil gifts to support a friend’s specific needs is a heartfelt way to show them you care, even if you can’t be physically there.

Gift Pick #12 – Homemade Gifts

There’s nothing quite like delicious, lovingly baked treats to share at this time of year, especially when they’re produced by you in your own kitchen!

Gift Pick #13 – Charitable Support

Not sure what to buy someone who says they have everything they need? Find out what projects, community concerns or charities they support and make a donation on their behalf. If your loved ones are nature-loving spirits, you could consider planting a tree.

Gift Pick #14 – An Experience to Remember

If you are worried about clogging up their houses with things they probably don’t need, why not give them an experience instead? Experiences like concerts, massages, a class they’ve been wanting to do. Even better, offer to go with them!

I hope you’ve got some ideas to give more mindfully this Christmas!

Seasons Greetings from my heart to yours,

Are we in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act?
CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared.
According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

Our Privacy Policy is accessible through a link on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website.

Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found as specified above.
You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes on our Privacy Policy Page.

You can change your personal information by emailing us.


Do we comply with COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

What is our Fair Information Practice?

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. To be in line with Fair Information Practices we will notify you via email within 72 hours, as feasible, should a data breach occur:
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

Do we comply with the CAN SPAM Act?

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes specific requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
In compliance with this act, we collect your email address in order to:

Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders.

Send you additional information related to your product and/or service

Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.
To be in accordance with CANSPAM, we agree to the following:

Avoid use of false or misleading subjects or email addresses.

Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.

Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.

Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.

Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.

Data protection laws give you the right to request erasure, to object to processing or to withdraw consent. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and we will promptly remove you from all correspondence. There is no fee for us to do this for you.
