Below, you’ll find 50 items that would make excellent gift options for yoga teachers. If you’re trying to give back some of the joy that they’ve brought into your life, you’ll be sure to find something useful!
Yoga Gifts For Yoga Teachers and Yoga Lovers – Under $50
1. WRASCO Yoga Mat Bag
Carrying a yoga mat to and from the studio can be tedious when using a traditional backpack. To fix this problem, the WRASCO Yoga Mat Bag has a special slot specifically designed to hold any size mat for you or your instructor.
What I love about this bag is that I can carry everything I need for a yoga class, from yoga blocks to yoga blankets, in a super stylish carrier.
2. Silent Mind Tibetan Singing Bowl Set
Yoga is all about relaxing meditation and light exercise. If you want to help your teacher reach this state, buying them a Silent Mind Tibetan Singing Bowl Set is an excellent idea. It will allow them to sink into a calm state by using deep tones and soothing hums to lower their blood pressure and help them focus on the moment.
Additionally, I like this yoga gift for yoga teachers because yoga teachers can use the singing bowl set during their classes.
3. White Set of 4 Home Decorative Porcelain Ceramic Statues
This set of statues from KiaoTime includes four different ceramic figures, each one in a yoga pose. The collection of four will allow your teacher to display their love of yoga proudly throughout their home or even in the yoga studio, but you can also choose to buy single statues if you’re shopping on a budget.
These figures are more expensive than the Elephant Poses Figurines as they are much larger.
4. Sanuk Women’s Yoga Mat Flip-Flops
Many yoga studios require people to wear flip-flops because they’re flexible and breathable. If you think your teacher is one of those people who could use a pair, I recommend getting the Sanuk Yoga Mat Flip-Flops. The footbed is of yoga mat material, and they come in 23 colors and 13 sizes.
5. Florensi Meditation Cushion
Mobile comfort is a subtle luxury, making the Florensi Meditation Cushion a welcome surprise for yoga teachers who are always on the move. This cushion is made with soft fabric and has a supportive base to keep your teacher feeling relaxed and free of aches – no matter where they are.
6. Pete’s Choice Dharma Yoga Wheel
When someone’s about to start teaching yoga classes all day long, they have to limber up and loosen their muscles a bit. Pete’s choice Dharma Yoga Wheel is perfect for relaxing the spine and calming muscles to start the morning fresh. For a few dollars extra, you can include a set of yoga blocks along with the yoga wheel.
7. Top Plaza 7 Chakra Gemstones
Healing stones have been around for many years. And whether you believe in their powers or not, they’re still a kind gesture of goodwill. These Top Plaza 7 Chakra Gemstones promote healing, making them an excellent yoga gift for the spiritual yogi.
However, with such a gift, you do need to know if your yoga teacher is fond of gemstones. If you do not know your yoga instructor that well, you should give a simpler and straightforward yoga gift.
8. 321 STRONG Foam Roller
Doing yoga for a living is exhausting and tough on the muscles. If your instructor complains about sore muscles, get them a 321 STRONG Foam Roller to loosen up their muscles and give them a nice relaxing treat.
This massaging roller comes in a variety of colors, and you’ll also receive a bonus eBook with the purchase. This roller is an indulgence that your yoga teacher will appreciate.
9. Pink Yoga Joes
Pink Yoga Joes are a hilarious gift to give someone. This gag yoga gift contains several yoga-performing soldiers covered in pink paint. They come in a glass display case, though your teacher could leave them out around a desk if they want to.
Depending on the decor of the yoga studio, the pink Joes might not fit into the decor. However, if your yoga teacher is quirky, they will appreciate this yoga gift.
10. Gaiam Yoga Mat
Perhaps the most apparent yoga gift for a yoga teacher would be a yoga mat. This Gaiam Yoga Mat is extra-thick to provide a bit more cushion than the average yoga mat. It is broader and longer, too, with dimensions of 68 inches by 24 inches.
11. Quan Jewelry Yoga Lotus Flower Necklace
The lotus flower symbolizes enlightenment, purity, rebirth, and more. Give your instructor the Quan Jewelry Yoga Lotus Flower Necklace to show the happiness and personal growth that they’ve brought into your life.
Special Mention: Revere Scalp & Hair Elixir
What better gift than an all-natural hair elixir for hair care? I have tried Revere and I can’t recommend this product enough. Oils play an essential role in the practice of a yogi and are often used to destress and improve circulation. Revere is handmade using all-natural ingredients: Coconut Oil, Rosemary Leaves, Fenugreek Seeds, and Black Seed Oil. These ingredients are nature’s treat for balancing scalp health, reviving follicle strength, and regrowing healthy hair. Click here to buy Revere.
Yoga Gifts For Yoga Teachers & Yoga Lovers – Under $20
12. Best Sports Water Bottle
Yoga is exhausting. Despite the belief that it’s all breathing and stretching, you can work up quite a sweat.
Unlike a gym, where you can find water fountains placed strategically, yoga studios, in general, lack this feature. To help your yoga teacher rehydrate after a long workout, you can consider buying them a water bottle.
While there are thousands of water bottles on the market, I recommend buying the Best Sports Water Bottle. It’s lightweight, Eco-friendly, and BPA plastic-free comes in a variety of colors and holds up to 18 ounces of water. If your teacher uses an old or beat-up water bottle, buying them a modern replacement is a thoughtful (and affordable) yoga gift.
13. Yoga Dice by Chronicle Books
Yoga Dice are intriguing, delightful, and thoughtful yoga gifts for your yoga instructor. Each side of the dice comes with different yoga poses to keep things new and fresh. There are thousands of varying pose combinations to try out! If your instructor is looking for a random challenge, rolling these die is an excellent way to facilitate it.
The reason this will be an excellent yoga gift for a yoga teacher is that it will help your yoga teacher get creative and use the dice in preparing new class sequences.
14. Basic Spirit Yoga Elephant Poses Pewter Figurines
If your yoga teacher is a fan of yoga-themed decor, they’ll love these miniature Basic Spirit Yoga Elephant Poses Pewter Figurines. This set of 3 elephants makes for a small way to liven up your teacher’s office or home. Bonus points if your instructor is an animal lover! Moreover, these figurines are relatively affordable!
15. ASUTRA Natural & Organic Yoga Mat Cleaner
The ASUTRA Yoga Mat Cleaner is another excellent spray to give to a yoga teacher. It comes in citrus, lavender, lemongrass, peppermint, and many other scents. So, if you’re looking for scents not provided by the Mind Over Lather brand, this is a great alternative. This spray also includes a microfiber towel to wipe the mats.
Although ASUTRA position this spray as a mat cleaner, I would use it to wipe down yoga mats. To thoroughly clean the yoga mats, I would use a mixture of tea tree oil and detergent. You can find a guide on how to clean yoga mats here.
16. Yinuo Candle Women Scented Candles
Yinuo Candle makes a wide variety of waxes and wicks for everyone. To help broaden the scent options at your studio, you can get your yoga teacher their scented candles that come in three different packs with many aromas. These candles are compact, and they all come with lids.
I especially like the fact that the candles come in small tins. This packaging is perfect for a yoga studio where the candles need to be in self-contained packaging to reduce fire hazards.
17. Yoga Animals Coasters
This yoga gift idea is a bit out there, and you need to know the personality of a person before you give them such a yoga gift. Some people may find the quotes and pictures crude, while others will find them to be funny. I love this coaster set!
This Yoga Animals Coasters comes in several different packs that have different quotes and pictures. If your yoga teacher enjoys a bit of sarcasm, they’ll probably enjoy this gift.
18. Namaste Coffee Travel Tumbler by Globodyne Tumblers
If your instructor is a coffee lover, the Namaste Coffee Tumbler is a great gift idea. This steel rose coffee mug comes with a lid to seal it off and keeps in the heat for hours on end! This tumbler can also store ice-cold water and maintain the temperature.
This tumbler is one of my top picks for a gift under $20, especially if you do not know the person well and require a safe and straightforward gift that is bound to delight.
19. Yoga Cards by NewMe Fitness
This set of Yoga Cards by NewMe Fitness is a fun, creative yoga gift to give. Each card has a yoga pose with varying difficulties to keep your instructor on their toes. They can even use them during class to spice things up and keep the students on their toes.
I love these yoga cards as it helps the yoga teacher to get creative and perhaps use the cards as an inspiration to create new class sequences.
20. SukhaMat Yoga Knee Pad Cushion
The SuhkaMat Yoga Knee Pad Cushion is an excellent piece of equipment for making knee-oriented yoga poses more comfortable. The odds are that your yoga teacher already has one of these, but this is the perfect yoga gift for them if they don’t.
If your yoga teacher owns the yoga studio, then this is a great yoga gift that can also be used by the students.
21. The Yoga Kitchen
The Yoga Kitchen is a book created to inspire the energetic diet needed to perform yoga and other exercises. There’s no doubt that class leaders have to stay well-fed and awake during every hour of the day. This book makes a perfect yoga gift to help them discover unique recipes and keep them feeling good.
I particularly like the fact that the book only includes vegetarian recipes. Chances are your yoga teacher is most likely a vegetarian and will appreciate authentic vegetarian recipes.
22. Aromatherapy Bracelet
Aromatherapy bracelets are made with essential oils to calm, energize, and heal. It has reusable felt pads that slowly release each oil, giving the wearer fantastic results as long as they have it strapped to their wrist. If your teacher uses essential oils during class, they’ll probably love this bracelet.
If you are curious about the essential oils and incense used in yoga studios, I have written a detailed guide on choosing the right scents for yoga studios. Review the article before selecting the right aromatherapy bracelet for your yoga teacher.
23. Llamaste Shirt
If you’re searching for funny clothes to buy for your instructor, then the Llamaste shirt is a top-notch option. It’s a hilarious play on words, combining llama and Namaste, and comes in three colors and a wide selection of sizes.
I am a big fan of giving yoga gifts with a personality, and this shirt is an excellent choice for yoga gifts under $20.
24. Sunny Present Empowering Questions Cards
The Sunny Present Empowering Questions Cards offers a random selection of thought-provoking questions. If your teacher is the philosophical type, they’ll appreciate this yoga gift immensely. Reviewing these cards, I found myself moving into a profoundly meditative state.
Although this yoga gift seems simple, it is one of those gifts that can have a significant impact.
25. Kindfolk Yoga Mat Duffle Bag
The Kindfolk Yoga Mat Duffle Bag is another carrying satchel to consider for your yoga instructor.
This bag is big and has enough room for yoga mats, clothes, water bottles, and more. There are also four different color patterns to check out. This bag is perfect for yoga instructors as they need to pack their equipment for the whole day.
26. Brimma Leak Proof Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
Hydration is essential to living a healthy lifestyle, but it’s even more critical for people who make a living doing yoga. Add a little bit of nutrition to your instructor’s hydration with the Brimma Leak Proof Fruit Infuser Water Bottle, and your instructor will be more than thankful!
This fruit infuser water bottle is one of those yoga gifts which I would buy not just for the yogis in my life but also for myself!
27. TREELANCE Organic Cotton Yoga Workout Tank Top
The TREELANCE Workout Tank Top has a variety of quotes and designs to choose from, including hilarious quotes like an “I Love Handstands” (but it’s upside-down) and more mindful quotes such as “freedom,” “compassion,” and “Namaste.” Choose the correct size for your instructor and pair it up with one of the multiple color choices for a thoughtful and useful yoga gift.
28. Chisportate Women High Waist Yoga Leggings
Leggings and yoga go together like any other perfect match. They’re breathable, form-fitting, and affordable. And the Chisportate Yoga Leggings are some of the best yoga-specific leggings available. These leggings come in 26 color combinations and have a variety of fun designs and four different sizes.
29. Practicing Mindfulness – Book
Practicing Mindfulness is a book that focuses on stress relief, mental health, and self-empowerment. This inspirational title comes as a paperback book, an audiobook, and an eBook on Kindle, making it easy for your teacher to read or listen to the book, depending on their preference.
You might think that your yoga teacher is an expert in the art of mindfulness and yoga. However, gifts such as these are cherished and help the yoga teacher to understand how they can convey similar concepts to their students who might still be early in their journey of meditation and yoga.
30. Non-Slip Yoga Socks by Saucey Socks
Saucey Socks is known for its variety of prints on socks and other clothes. Their Non-Slip Yoga Socks are a perfect yoga gift for instructors who work on hardwood floors or any other surface that causes regular socks to slide or skid.
31. How To: Yoga Coffee Mug
The How To: Yoga Coffee Mug is a coffee mug with many yoga poses printed on it, along with detailed instructions on how to perform those asanas. Your yoga teacher might not need help, but it’s always going to be a good talking piece.
32. Authentic Mexican Yoga Blanket
Yoga blankets aren’t super standard in studios (they’re hard to clean), but they’re perfect for at-home stretches. Give your teacher this Mexican Yoga Blanket so that they can enjoy the breathable comfort of this extra-soft fabric wherever they go.
Also, have you ever wondered why Mexican blankets are so famous for yoga? I have written an article explaining why yoga studios use Mexican blankets. Do give it a read.
33. URBNFit Exercise Ball
Exercise balls are some of the most frequently used items in yoga studios (aside from mats and rollers). If your teacher doesn’t have one – or if their ball is worn-out – the URBNFit Exercise Ball is an excellent choice of gift. It’s long-lasting, comfortable, and comes in five different sizes and a plethora of colors. It even includes a workout guide chart.
34. Ozaiic Non-Slip Yoga Socks
These Ozaiic Non-Slip Yoga Socks are not only perfect for slippery hardwood floors, but they also have porous tops. The breathability of these socks is second to none, and they come in a multitude of colors that are bound to be appreciated by any yoga teacher.
35. Yoga 365: Daily Wisdom for Life, On and Off the Mat
If you’re trying to add a little bit of inspiration to your instructor’s life, this book is a hidden gem. Yoga 365 teaches yoga, but it also includes mention of the healthy, energized lifestyle that one should live to enjoy every moment of life.
36. pete’s choice Yoga Straps
These pete’s choice Yoga Straps will allow your teacher to stretch more than they would normally be able to. If your teacher doesn’t seem to have yoga straps, these are an excellent addition to their yoga arsenal. Although, I would reserve this gift for a yogi who is early in their journey of yoga.
37. The Yoga Anatomy Coloring Book
Yoga and coloring with crayons or pencils are both great sources of stress relief, so why not combine them? This Yoga Anatomy Coloring Book allows your teacher to express their creative freedom and check out new yoga poses. Besides, coloring books for adults have exploded in popularity due to their ability to relieve stress.
38. Workout Headbands
If you’ve noticed that your teacher enjoys wearing headbands, this 3-Pack of Workout Headbands is a great yoga gift. They wick away sweat and keep it out of your eyes, and they’re also very cooling and breathable. Another benefit is that your teacher will look great in the three different colors found in every pack.

I have included it in the under $20 section as you can purchase the required equipment individually. However, the entire kit will cost you over $50.

It’s no secret that yoga is tiring, especially hot yoga. The BOGI Cooling Towel will keep your yoga instructor cool throughout the day. It comes in a compact carrying bottle to protect the towel from debris, but it unfolds instantly for quick usage.

These Zoo Yoga Cards are a funny take on yoga pose cards. They show several species of animals performing yoga poses. As the person draws a card, everyone in the session has to do their best to attempt the pose, making it an excellent yoga gift for teachers who like to think outside the box.
