It's that time of the year again where we all start to think about Christmas gifts, unless you are super organised and are already finished that is! I love browsing shops in the city centre, cute market stalls in Bath and of course doing a sneaky bit of online shopping. I am always looking for gifts which are a little bit different and more personal. That is how I discovered mala beads from Tiny Devotions.
Mala beads are a string of beads of uniform size. They have been used across different cultures for many years as a tool in meditation. In my morning yoga practice I often set an intention for the day or recite a mantra, mala beads can help aid this. In the busy lives we lead it is easy to often feel stressed, over whelmed and a little bit frazzled! Meditation is a way to calm your mind, relax your body and find your inner peace despite the chaos going on around you. Mala beads can help you to set your intention on the mat and remind you of your intentions when you wear them off the mat.
"We wanted to create pieces that inspired their wearers to live their dreams, and believe that they could rule the world (even in Moccasins).
We are the chai drinkers, the adventurers who worship the sun, play in the ocean, wear their hair in beach waves (even if they live in the city) and set intentions every step of the way."
You can choose the mala beads by intention (adventure, freedom, love) which is a perfect and thoughtful gift to give and receive at Christmas time. Here are a few of my picks for gifts to give this year.....
Rose Quartz Wall Art ~ Perfect for setting intention around the home. A little reminder of your daily dose!
Aussie Mala ~ This is the mala I am drawn to both because of the deep sea green colour of the Australian Dragon Blood stone and the fact that it is said to have calming and free spirited properties.
Mermaid At Heart Bundle ~ I love the bundle concept for a gift. This bundle includes ~ T
he Water Stack, The Surfer Mala, The Ubud Scarf, a Tiny Devotions soap and a packet of Boho Coffee. Coffee and intentions ~ what's not to love? This is perfect for a girl who loves sand in her toes and waves in her hair!
