Place of Serenity | Top 10 mindfulness gifts

The great thing about mindfulness and meditation is that you can implement it any time and anywhere. It keeps you calm and relaxed. And connects you to your inner wisdom.

We all make the choice whether to be present. However, the other kind of presents are also very welcome! To keep you inspired (for Christmas or any time!) here are some ideas:

My Top 10 Mindfulness Gifts


Top 10 Mindfulness Gifts1. Meditation Stool: Sitting on chairs is fine but if you suffer with back-ache or neck-ache, this meditation stool is a great way of keeping an upright posture more comfortably. You can even get fitted cushions on them too.


Top 10 Mindfulness Gifts 2. Aromatherapy Diffuser such as this Ayan Ultrasonic Aroma Water Diffuser, Humidifier, Ioniser and Air Purifier with Colour Changing Light. This is great for filling the room with beautiful aromas, for meditating or any time.

Word from Yvette: There are many diffusers on the market, this happens to be the one I have and found it’s very good.


Top 10 Mindfulness Gifts3a  Aromatherapy oils for use with your Diffuser (see 2) and for so many other uses. Lavender is a great all-rounder. Other  uplifting oils are Bergamot, Lime, Geranium and Ylang ylang. Build up your own favourite aromatherapy oils!

3b I also love to use Aromatherapy Room Mists that are made with oils. Examples include Cornwall Soapbox Lavender, Rosemary & Patchouli.

3c More aromas: Incense Sticks such as Nag Champa Agarbatti from Holistic Shop.


Mindfulness Bell App 4. FREE APPS – Mindfulness gifts to yourself! There are many apps out there to help you meditate. This one is free and I continue to find it so useful.

It is a MINDFULNESS BELL that gives a single ring at random times during the day. So it works as a present-moment reminder.

Another practical app is Insight Timer – to time your meditation sessions so you don’t over-run.  Give this as a gift to yourself or ask a family member to help you download them.



Louise Hay Power Cards5. Louise Hay Power Thought Cards or Louise Hay Wisdom Cards

Keep these packs of cards in the kitchen to dip in and be inspired whenever you like.

Word from Yvette: Louise Hay’s beautifully illustrated Cards are great as daily uplifting reminders.



6. CaTop 10 Mindfulness Giftsndles – beeswax or soy candles make great mindfulness gifts.

Light a candle before you sit to meditate. It becomes a wonderful ritual as you set your intention to focus and meditate.

Word from Yvette: Votives and holders can be special and make great gifts too. I love my rose quartz candle holders which give off a beautiful rose-pink light when lit.


Top 10 Mindfulness Gifts7. Himalayan Salt Lampread here about the benefits such as the fact that they are good for keeping the air fresh. I especially like their lovely source of cosy light, particularly good in the winter months.

Colouring Books, Felt-tip Pens, Pastels, Watercolour Paints. The list is endless. It may be a lovely way to pick up on something joyful you enjoyed as a child.

Word from Yvette: I’ve recently been experimenting with watercolour paints. A relaxing mindful activity with plenty of Youtube videos to help you as a beginner.


Top 10 Mindfulness Gifts 9. Blanket or shawl – something lovely and soft that you can wrap around your shoulders when you sit to meditate. Ideas from John Lewis and IKEA.

Word from Yvette: Blankets are beautiful things, bringing comfort and warmth. They can become part of your calming ritual when you meditate. They may also hold good memories if you’ve bought a hand-made blanket on your travels.

10. Books –  here are a couple of great reads, not new, but ones I have read this year that I’d like to share with you:

Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr Joe Dispenza

Loveability by Robert Holden




Word from Yvette: My Top 10 Mindfulness Gifts have not been sponsored – they are simply my suggestions.

I can’t reiterate enough that no items are necessary in order to become more mindful or to meditate. But I hope you find among the list some enjoyable helpers as you give yourself time to relax and nurture your own personal peace!
