Mother's Day Gift Guide

If you’re looking for some gift inspo for a mama in your life (or, let’s be honest, to just treat yo’self, mama!) I’m sharing my ultimate Mother’s Day wish list!  Bonus: Most of these gifts are created and offered by Mama owned businesses. Because…the future is female. 

(Pssst...You can also check out an abridged version of this gift guide in this month's issue of Australian Yoga Journal on page 26-27.)

1. Eco-Friendly Linen Meditation Cushion 

I love it when you get the best of both worlds in a product- eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Pure Prana's beautiful handmade meditation cushion fits the bill. The organic flax cover is hand-dyed with non-toxic biodegradable dyes and the organic cotton lining is filled with lavender and buckwheat hulls. A beautiful addition to any Zen Den, Mama will be sitting pretty for her daily meditation!

2. Bahgsu Jewels Rose Quartz Slice Ring

A hunk of love that would look beautiful on any Mama’s hand! This gorgeous handmade ring by Bahgsu Jewels is a slice of a stalactite with rose quartz & clear crystal set in hammered 22kt gold vermeil. Rose Quartz is the stone of universal love, something that mothers embody on the daily.

3. Living Libations Breast Massage Oil  

In my book, this luscious breast massage oil is a must for all Mamas. Breast massage is a simple but effective way to keep your breasts healthy by moving the lymph. Pair that daily ritual with a beautiful blend of essential oils and infused herbal oils and you’ll be enhancing the effects. This blend by Living Libations is packed with carefully selected synergistic botanical oils that will give breasts the TLC they deserve. 

4. Live The Process Corset Unitard  

I have this corset unitard in navy blue and it is hands down the most comfortable piece of yoga gear in my closet! Not to mention that I get bombarded with compliments on it every time I wear it. Added bonus- it’s been the ideal piece for pregnancy, no tight waistbands, wohooo! A flattering staple for yoga classes or preschool drop-off. Amen. 

5. Yogatribe Metratron Eco Yoga Mat In Warm Peace 

This 100% eco-friendly organic jute mat byYogatribe is free of latex, toxins, phthalates and metals. Not only is this good news for Mother Earth, it also means no toxic materials to kill Mama’s vibe! Fret not, this mat is beautiful but it’s also functional. The texture of this mat is non-slip and extra durable, perfect for when you have wildlings climbing all over you during your morning practice! 

6. Kiely Smith Designs Mantra Bangle 

This handmade mantra bangle by Kiely Smith Designs is stamped with the mantra "Om mani padme hum." In essence, this is a mantra of loving-kindness, benevolence and compassion. Basically the job description for being a mother, no? A perfect devotional reminder for Mama. 

7. Clay Twombly Peach Aventurine Mala 

This hand-knotted mala is strung with peach aventurine beads with a quartz crystal guru bead. These males are handmade to order and make a beautiful gift - they’re beautiful to wear as a necklace or bracelet but I also use one for japa meditation.

8. Spell & The Gypsy Collective Blue Skies Bralette & Bloomers

This sweet Blue Skies Bralette and matching Bloomers make a perfect, pretty (and practical) pair! Awesome for pregnant mamas (stretchy and comfortable) and breastfeeding (no underwire!), easy to wear under sheer or peek-a-boo tops, and they double as a bikini. A perfect fit for any Mama, and because the sizing is simple (S, M, L, XL), they make for easy gift-giving.

9. Marti Nikko And DJ Drez’s New Album Explorers Of Infinity 

Wife and husband team Marti Nikko and DJ Drez’s latest collaboration is an albumevery yoga mama needs in her collection! Think ancient mantras paired with reggae vibes, jazz treats and hiphop beats. A perfect soundtrack that will shower you with blessings whether you’re rolling out the mat for ecstatic yoga flow jam or cooking dinner at home. 

10. 4 Desires by Rod Stryker

As a Mama, our primary yoga practice is often just being a mother. But I believe that it’s also important to continue our personal practices and self-discovery. This book by my teacher, Yogarupa Rod Stryker, is a powerful and practical playbook for discovering and living your soul’s unique purpose, and for enlivening your capacity to recognise and reach personal goals. The result: a happy, fulfilled life. Ancient concepts and practices are presented in a modern light that is easy to understand even if someone isn’t into yoga!

11.  Shemana Crystalline Elixirs Heart Mist & Savasana Mist 

These amazing Australian made aromatic sprays are a blend of essential oils infused with crystal codes and flower essences. The heart spray is perfect for spritzing your body (and bedroom!) and helps you drop into a connected, heart-centred state. These are the perfect companions for any mama’s yoga practice- I love using the Heart Mist to sent an intention at the beginning of a practice and then the Savasana Mist to create a super lush relaxation at the end. 

12. The Conscious Parent by Shefali Tsabary, PhD  

This book invites parents to step away from power struggles and reactive parenting and instead see parenting as a spiritual awakening, an opportunity to deepen our understanding of ourselves and a relationship of mutual learning.  

13. Sacred Geometry Tattoos

Sacred geometry in gold and silver temporary tattoos. So beautiful and a reminder of the divinity within us. I love wearing these for special occasions, parties, workshops and festivals. Also a perfect gift for mother’s to be! If you’re hosting or participating in a blessing way, get a pack of these to adorn that beautiful pregnant belly with!

14. Sunday Forever Kimono 

Kimonos are my jam, and this full-length kimono from Sunday Forever is no exception. This blush coloured robe comes with an obi belt that makes it totally wearable outside the house. All day PJ party? You're speaking my language. 

 

There you have it! A bounty of beautiful options for that special mama in your life. Happy gifting! xx

Kick Off A Meditation Practice That Sticks

In the Western cultural framework, we've managed to turn our personal practices into a competitive sport. Whether it's yoga or meditation, many people are intimidated to dip their toe in because they think they aren't "good enough" or "ready." This couldn't be further from the truth.

Why Self Care Is Sacred
Why Self Care Is Sacred

by Caitlin Cady

The words “self love” and “self care” sound a bit…limp. Less than inspiring. Boring even. Like…oh great, another “thing” I need to do. AMIRIGHT? But here’s my hack. Add the word “sacred” as a prefix and suddenly, I’m more interested. Sacred Self-Care sounds like something I can get down with...
