Gifts for spiritual friends: some ideas

Spirituality Course on Udemy

A great unique gift for someone who is either just discovering spirituality or looking to advance their inner development goals or spiritual healing, Udemy has plenty of fantastic spirituality courses. From simple breathwork and spiritual cleansing to full shamanic initiations, there’s a spirituality course for every type of person, no matter what stage they’re at on their spiritual growth journey. Udemy makes for a good gift because you are not gifting material things and it’s such a powerful tool for learning a whole throng of new things.

A himalayan salt lamp

gifts for spiritual people

A salt lamp is a wonderful gift for spiritual people who need a little extra mood boost or are having trouble sleeping. Himalayan salt lamps are made from the mineral-rich pink salt mined from Pakistan’s Khewra Salt Mine. As well as looking lovely and creating a relaxing ambiance in your giftee’s home, they are also believed to have many health benefits. Salt lamps are ‘natural ionizers’, which means they change the electrical charge of the air around them to form negative ions. These negative ions are believed to improve air quality, increase levels of serotonin to boost mood and help promote sleep. A practical and tasteful spiritual gift idea.

A Yoga Mat

gift for spiritual person

When looking for spirituality gifts ideas for yoga lovers, you really can’t go wrong with a yoga mat. A staple for every yogi, yoga mats can be used for performing yoga asanas, as well as for meditation and many other exercises. Even if your recipient already has a yoga mat, I’m sure they’ll appreciate another one anyway – I would! It’s the perfect spiritual gift for active people. They may already be in need of a new mat but were waiting for the right time to dish out one. And if not, a second yoga mat is still a handy thing to keep in the car or at work when rushing to practice around a busy schedule. Manduka makes great mats, otherwise here are some cheaper options. Anything pertaining to yoga makes for spiritual wellness gifts that are sure to help anyone live in the present moment.

An Oracle Deck

Oracle decks or tarot cards are one of the best spiritual gifts for just about any spiritually-inclined curious person. They are fun and everyone can get on board with having their future read to them. I have these oracle cards myself and everyone loves getting a reading from me. There are plenty more tarot decks over here.

A Zen Garden

Another household item that makes a lovely housewarming gift for a spiritual person is a zen garden. Zen gardens are miniature versions of Japanese zen gardens, which feature natural elements such as sand, rocks, and statues. Just like their full-sized counterparts, household zen gardens promote meditation and relaxation, aid stress relief, and increase focus. They offer a calm and tranquil natural space that can be placed on a desk or elsewhere around the home. You can even make a zen garden yourself for extra thoughtful and zen gifts.

A Chakra Book

Chakras – which means wheels or disks – are the various energy focal points along the spinal column responsible for disturbing spiritual life energy – also known as Qi or Prana – around the body. The concept is found in the early traditions of Hinduism. Many spiritual practices including yoga and breathwork aim to release blocked energy in a chakra and fix the physical, mental and emotional imbalances caused by such blockages. A chakra book is a great idea for a person just starting out on their spiritual journey or wanting to learn more about this important element of spirituality. One of those essential spiritual gift ideas – spiritual books!

A Meditation Retreat

Looking to really push the boat out and find extra special meaningful gifts for a loved one? Try treating them to a meditation retreat. Whether it’s a long weekend at a spiritual retreat nearby or two weeks practicing meditation and yoga by the beach in Costa Rica, they’re sure to love it! I know I would. Plus, if you book for two people, you can keep them company and treat yourself at the same time.

A Meditation Pillow

Another staple on any spiritual gifts list and especially for meditation lovers is a meditation cushion. I love using my meditation cushion to make longer meditation sessions more comfortable. A high-quality meditation cushion is filled with buckwheat which stops it from shifting and helps you to feel more grounded in your practice. It may be a little pricer than your average cushion, but that’s what makes it such a beautiful gift.

A Tibetan Singing Bowl

spiritual gift idea

Tibetan singing bowls are bowls that produce deep sounds and vibrations when hit and circled with a mallet. They’re used to promote relaxation and are believed to offer powerful healing properties including stress relief, pain relief, aiding sleep, reducing depression, and balancing and harmonizing the body. In fact, Buddhist monks have used Tibetan singing bowls in meditation practice for decades. While you can often find singing bowls used in meditation centers, yoga studios, or by music therapists, it’s less common to find them in people’s homes. Making it one of the most unique spiritual gifts if you’re looking for something a little different.

Sam Harris’ Waking Up Book

Sam Harris’ ‘Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion’ is one of my favourite spirituality books and a great positive energy gift idea. Harris’s book explores the scientific underpinnings of spirituality and offers a guide to meditation as a rational spiritual practice informed by neuroscience and psychology. The perfect gift for your atheist or agnostic friend who wants spirituality, and to partake in spiritual practices such as meditation and mindfulness, without the religious aspects. An amazing gift for anyone!

Acupressure Mat

shakti mat

Another great choice on the thoughtful gifts list is an acupressure mat is a great gift for a spiritual person who also loves trying out new wellness trends – like me! An acupressure mat is an at-home alternative to the traditional Chinese medicine techniques of acupressure or acupuncture. The mats contain thousands of tiny plastic spikes and are designed to target acupressure points in the body in order to reduce pain, promote relaxation and restore balance in the body, mind, and spirit. Gaining popularity over the last few years, there are many different brands of acupressure mats currently on the market, including the original shakti mat, the bed of nails mat and the convenient travel-sized spoonk mat.

Essential Oils

Last but not least on this best gifts for spiritual friends list, an essential oil kit is sure to please anyone with a spiritual practice. Oils have a great way to bring inner peace to daily life by setting the mood in a room or applying pressure points. I’m personally a big fan to get rid of negative energy and spreading only good vibes in my flat!
