Gifts for Your Minimalist Yoga Friend

A little note from Andrea about the gift guides: I had so much fun putting these together this year. These are all gifts I’d love to give or receive — you’ll find a mix of handmade, non-toxic, eco-friendly, and just plain old fun items.

This one is inspired by a yoga friend who always looks pulled together. She knows who she is and knows what she loves: Simplicity, luxury, and function.
