As someone who is fond of meditation herself, these have to be my favorites!

Check out the full list below!

1. Meditation Pillow – $

This gift is for those who find peace in sitting on the floor and crossing their legs. 

But that doesn’t mean it isn’t uncomfortable. Sitting on the floor for an hour can do some serious damage to one’s gluteus maximus. This floor cushion will fix that. This soft cushion ensures proper posture and keeps the spine aligned. At the same time, it takes away the comfort of sitting on a hard floor and makes good medication gifts for men who aren’t that flexible.

2. 200 Mini-Meditations – $

One of the purposes of meditation is to get the feeling of abundance, confidence, and inspiration. This is also known as manifestations. Getting these feelings is not an easy task, which is where this book comes in.

6. Chakra Stones – $

Chakra refers to the 7 focal points in a person’s body. We all have energetic blocks and participate in activities that affect our energy.

Chakra stones help restore energy to particular focal points. These different stones have healing properties that help remove these energy blocks and encourage vitality and energetic.

7. Moon Night Light

Being around natural things and in nature is a form of meditation in itself. Natural light, fresh air, and beautiful landscapes are known to reduce stress.

Not everyone has a beautiful nature around them. Overpopulation and light pollution limits exposure to such beauty. This night lamp helps bring some of that into one’s home. This moon lamp looks exactly like the moon, from its texture to the light. 

8. Meditation Beads

Part of meditation is doing the same thing repeatedly. Performing the task ends up taking less mental space, leaving room for the mind to focus on other things. They say that Einstein himself had his best ideas when he was doing repetitive tasks like washing dishes.

Meditation beads serve the same purpose. The person keeps reciting the same phrase and moving beads. The task becomes so repetitive, their mind is allowed to wander and gain self-actualization.

9. Tibetan Singing Bowl – $$$

This bronze bowl is known as a singing bowl because when one hits it with the attached hammer, it produces a deep vibrating sound.

This tone is excellent for meditation purposes. The deep, rich sound paired with a tranquil environment promotes complete relaxation. Anyone who loves relaxing needs this mediation gift.

If the singing bowl is out of your price ranges, these Woodstock chimes do a good job too! 

Placed on an ashwood frame, these 3 chimes work wonders in calming the mind. Just one light tap from the wooden mallet and a deep and powerful tone will fill the entire room. Pair this with some scented candles and a comfortable mat for the perfect meditative trance.

Looking for a more one-of-a-kind gift that’s environmentally friendly? Look no further than these bamboo wind chimes.

Each wind chime is hand-crafted, ensuring that no two are exactly the same. The bamboo is ethically sourced and made of renewable materials. This makes it one of the perfect meditation gifts for someone who is nuts about the environment. The bamboo exterior gives it an outdoorsy look. The relaxing tone of the chimes creates calmness and peace.

12. Zen as F*ck Journal – $

Tranquility isn’t always smiles and soft tones. Sometimes, it’s a good dose of profanity. 

This book is a brilliant gift for someone who enjoys their share of profanity. Each page is full of wicked and witty statements. It has space for people to fill in their own thoughts and experiences. The more f words, the better!

13. Buddha Board – $

This Buddha board is a FANTASTIC gift for those that feel at peace while drawing or painting.

The Buddha board lies atop a hollow stand full of smooth pebbles. Just pour water into that stand and dip the attached pen into it. That’s all that one needs to create some beautiful Japanese-like art. Or even just some ugly scribbles. The whole thing disappears in 3 minutes either way.

This Buddha statue is a lovely addition to any meditation-loving household. Just looking at this statue of the Buddha in such a peaceful position is sure to relax the viewer. 


18. Miniature Zen Garden – $

Gardening is an excellent form of meditation. Having one’s own Zen garden helps create a place where one can find peace and be one with nature.

For those with no yard or no space, it’s next to impossible to have their own Zen garden. Thank God, you can gift them a miniature one. This square box is filled with soft white sand and miniature items. It might not be the same as an actual garden, but it’s pretty damn close!

19. Desktop Gong – $

One of the most effective ways to maintain a meditative state is to identify moments that stress one out. And is there anything more stressful than working?

As humans, our senses are constantly engaged. From bright lights to loud noises to intense smells – it’s enough to make anyone overwhelmed.

For the overwhelmed mind, I recommend this coloring book. Each of the 100 pages is covered with detailed illustrations. Coloring them in helps facilitate relaxation and channel anxiety into something more positive.

23. Lotus Flower Tapestry

There are just some symbols in this world that are naturally associated with meditation. The lotus flower is one such symbol. Looking at one makes you think of Zen gardens and peace and quiet.

This tapestry also creates the same feelings. Choose between a deep blue or soft pink color. It can be hung on the wall, used as a tablecloth, or even used as a window curtain!

Some people like to have their own meditation room if they have space. These rooms are beautifully decorated with soft lighting, candles, yoga mats, and more.

30. Black Shiva Lingam – $

The Shiva Lingam has strong connections to Hinduism. The lingam represents Shiva, a Hindu god. It is believed to be full of “generative powers” that help revitalize the holder. The stone is made of Crypto Crystaline Quartz and is supposed to restore harmony and balance in one’s life. Know anyone who is feeling lost and unsure of themselves? This is the meditation gift for them.

31. Meditation Cushion with Acupressure

I’ve already talked about the importance of a meditation cushion. For hardcore meditators, sitting on the hard floor for too long can hurt their bones and posture.

This meditation cushion isn’t just comfortable. It is fitted with acupressure points that identify one’s tense spots. The massaging power of these points helps ease the tension and relax muscles. one of the best and useful meditation gifts.

32. Tibetan Juniper Incense – $

Out of all the incense smell options, juniper has to be my favorite. People think that since it’s a flower, it must have a very floral and sweet smell. That isn’t the case at all.

Juniper has a very foliage-like smell. It is woody with hints of cedar. Some people even say it smells a little like gin. Who wouldn’t be relaxed in a room that smells like gin?

33. Affirmation Cards

A lot of stress comes from a lack of confidence. The need to overthink one’s actions and words creates a lot of stress and anxiety.

That person needs these affirmation cards. Each of the 60 cards has beautiful and vibrant artworks on them. Each card also has positive affirmations and thought-provoking questions that encourage mindfulness. 

34. Yoga Pose Statue

This is a fun gift for anyone who is into yoga. 

This elegant statue is entirely white and depicts a woman in the lotus yoga pose. There’s even a set of 3 which shows 3 women in different versions of the lotus pose. Know anyone whose favorite pose is the lotus pose? Can you imagine a better meditation gift?

These candles help improve energy in a certain focal point and help return balance to one’s body and life. Each candle is long-lasting and brightly colored which aids in the relaxation process.

40. Zen Artist Board

This artist board is inspired by a very Zen idea, i.e. the importance of living in the moment. 

With this board, one just has to dip the pen in water and start painting. The result is thick black strokes, similar to Japanese and Chinese letters. The trick is that this painting only lasts for a few minutes with this mindfulness meditation gifts.
