The 7 Best Meditation Gifts From Nike
Meditation gifts can eliminate distractions, letting the practitioner focus on breathwork and mental clarity.
For the meditators on your shopping list, gifts like cozy sweatpants and cushioned yoga mats can make their practice more comfortable and help them reap the many health benefits that meditation has to offer.
Here are seven of the best meditation gifts from Nike for new and experienced meditators alike.
Nike Yoga Luxe Leggings
Comfort is crucial when trying to clear the mind. That’s why the silk-soft Nike Yoga Luxe line is ideal for activities like meditation. Infinalon fabric feels smooth against the skin and offers gentle compression while minimizing friction points and distractions.
Choose leggings that come in high- and mid-waist options with lengths ranging from cropped to full-length. Some leggings are made with sustainable materials, like recycled polyester, for the eco-conscious gifter.
Mindful Running Collection in NRC
Perhaps the meditator on your gift list prefers mindful movement to traditional meditation. With runners in mind, Nike paired with Headspace — a premier meditation app — to create a Mindful Running Collection on the Nike Run Club app.
It features guided runs ranging from 25 to 60 minutes, during which Headspace co-founder Andy Puddicombe and Nike Running Coach Chris Bennett provide guidance and prompts for a more intentional run.
Nike Mastery Yoga Mat
The meditator on your list can make a dedicated meditation space anywhere with the Nike Mastery yoga mat. At only 3.5 pounds, it’s lightweight and easy to carry while still providing 5 millimeters of cushion from the ground. The natural rubber material has a cooling effect to keep it comfortable, as well as anti-microbial and anti-odor properties.
Nike Yoga Hoodies and Pullovers
Meditation requires stillness, and as deep breathing techniques slow the heart rate, it’s easy to feel chilled. Nike Yoga Luxe hoodies and pullovers will warm up any meditation lover with soft fleece materials. From cropped hoodies to crew-neck cover ups, these layers have a relaxed fit with plenty of room to breathe.
Nike Slippers and Slides
Gift the meditator in your life a cozy pair of slippers or slides to slip into before and after meditation sessions. They come in an array of styles: minimal slides with lightweight, foam midsoles or plush sandals with cushioning units and durable rubber soles.
Insulated slippers are ideal for colder months, as they have a soft, fleece-like interior and treaded outsole that can be worn both inside and out of the house.
Socks are a functional, thoughtful gift. Consider cushioned training socks for the mediation lover on your list, which balance warmth and breathability with Dri-FIT technology and a vented mesh panel on the upper.
Pick toeless socks with NikeGrip technology on the sole for traction on hardwood floors. Or, opt for tie-dye crew socks with all the benefits of training socks and added playfulness.
Nike Yoga Luxe Sweatpants
Sweatpants and joggers are ultimate comfort items. The Nike Yoga Luxe line features cozy fleece fabric and an elastic waistband to adjust tightness.
Joggers are ideal for mindful movements, as the cuffed ankle stays in place, while loose-fit cropped pants are comfortable for seated meditations. Many also have temperature-regulating Dri-FIT fabric, which wicks away moisture to enhance breathability and all-around comfort.
