2016 Holiday Gift Guide
As I sit here at YogaWorks SoHo sipping tea and listening to The Shins Radio on Apple Music (my coworker's favorite station) I look around at the retail section and think to myself, "What would I wish for this year?" Below you can find a list of my most favorite items from this year, all under $84!
1. Made by Fressko "TOUR" Flask ($44.95)
This stylish tea-infusing flask (I like the 400ml / 13oz size) is perfect for any tea enthusiast on-the-go. The chemical-free, double glassed Fressko TOUR Flask includes Fressko’s 2-in-1 “Infuse” Filter, which can be used to create fruit-infused water (or a cocktail!) or for brewing your favorite loose-leaf tea blend or instant coffee. For yogi's in a rush, like myself, it's awesome and different because you can BREW AS YOU GO! It's leak-proof and it stays hot or cold for up six hours depending on the style you choose.
2. Wolven Threads* "Chakra" Leggings ($84)
I love these leggings because of the unbelievably soft, 4-Way Stretch, anti-bacterial moisture-wicking fabric that they are made from. To make them even sweeter, they are made from 84% Recycled P.E.T. (from recycled plastic water bottles) and for every sale, they donate 5% profit to bring yoga to at-risk youth. *Use code BUNNY30 to save 30% off your order!
3. Batiste Dry Shampoo ($5.99 at Target)
The perfect stocking-stuffer for any yogi/dancer/athlete. I love the scent of the "Fruity & Cheeky Cherry" dry shampoo and the light color of the "Light & Blonde" dry shampoo, but my favorite is the "Clean & Light Bare" because it is so simple yet smells freshly-washed. This dry shampoo instantly transforms sweaty, oily hair into soft, clean locks, even after an ass-kicking cardio class!
4. Zion's Den Apparel CUSTOM LEGGINGS (from $65)
These build-your-own custom leggings are perfect to order for any yogi or barre girl! They are 100% handmade in the USA just for the client. I love the contrasting cut out options because they make your butt look amazing. While checking out, you have the choice to pick whatever print you'd like, because all items are hand-crafted and made to order!
5. The Athleisure Company Custom Bomber Jacket ($65 +free shipping)
Another amazing custom active-wear option this year is from this AMAZING new brand, The Athleisure Company. This black bomber is a great layering piece, and you can have ANYTHING you want printed on it (your name, your sports team, a fun quote, etc.) and it's made from the highest quality organic fabric.
6. Choker Necklace from Rendor+Steel (from $66)
For the fashion-forward yogi who wants to go from day to night, I recommend checking out this season's line of chokers from Rendor+Steel. Chokers are still trending, and it looks like they aren't going anywhere, so stock up for the new year. My current favorite is the "Ultra-Thin Velvet Choker" and the "1 Inch Leather Choker" in Blush, because velvet is having a huge moment right now.
7. Scarf from DOS NYC ($22)
These luxurious woven scarves and beach cover sarongs have been spun and printed by skilled artisans and printers in Punjab, who have been operating a family owned ethically run mill for over 40 years. Using the softest yarns available, they developed their own gauzey viscose fabric made from naturally occurring plant material. The result is a luxuriously soft hand feel, easy to care, that gets better with time. They will keep you warm on a cool day and protect you from the sun on a hot day. Absorbent and soft to the touch, they can be worn in any condition. All pieces are versatile and can be used as beach covers in summer or scarves in winter! Designed in Brooklyn, Worn Everywhere. "We are all Descendants of the Sun."
