For many of us, the holidays can be the most stressful times of the year. Whether it's Christmas or a milestone birthday, gift giving, prepping a roast or simply seeing the whole family can be quite stress-inducing. Now, some may have a few coping mechanisms already in place, but others might need a helping hand.

This is where we come in...

We're going to give you some great gift ideas for mindfulness and meditation. Pick something from our list and it should help the lucky recipient to cope with holiday stress and beyond.

Mindfulness meditation music

A great go-to gift for mindfulness is meditation music. The soothing mixture of sounds gives you the opportunity to relax and promote mindfulness of the present moment. For anyone looking to take a minute away from the action, this could be the perfect gift for some meditation practice.

Singing bowl

If they're a fan of soothing sounds, but would prefer something more interactive, look no further. A singing bowl is an easy-to-play instrument that provides the perfect sound for a meditation space. The consistent tones help you to focus your thoughts and calm your mind, allowing a great opportunity for mindful thinking and stress management.

Miniature zen gardens

By far one of the best mindfulness gifts for her or him, is the desk-top zen garden. These miniature gardens provide satisfying and relaxing areas with items like sand rakes, meditation statues, tree of life figures and often holders for burning incense.

Mindfulness journal

Any journaling process should pave the way toward stress relief, but this bestselling journal - 'Zen as F*ck: A Journal for Practising the Mindful Art of Not Giving a Sh*t', is a number one bestseller for a reason. With almost 19,000 five star ratings, this journal written by Author Monica Sweeney goes great in a mindfulness gift box or gift set.

Coloring books

Coloring could be the perfect gift for that stressed out friend of yours. There are plenty of adult coloring books on the market, but one of my favourites is this Anxiety Relief Adult Coloring Book. Specifically designed to ease your mind, this coloring book provides page upon page of satisfying patterns and shapes to color in. You can be sure this gift will distract that stressed out person for at least a few hours, giving them time to find peace and reduce stress.

Essential oils

Perhaps the simplest, but most effective meditative gift, is essential oil. With so many oils to choose from, I find it's best to go with a box set. The recipient can then test them all out and find their favourite along the way. This bestseller gift box includes an array of different oils, all natural with no additives or fillers.
