Awesome Yoga Gifts for the Fitness-Minded Men
Shopping for your yoga-loving or fitness-minded man can hard, but I’m going to make it easy for you. Being a fitness fanatic and yogi myself, I would want these gifts! Everything on this list I’ve purchased and used myself, and I’m a stickler for quality. You’ll be sure to make the man in your life (or yourself) a happy guy with any of the gifts below! Watch the vlog just below for a full explanation of each gift, or just scroll on through the blog.
Yoga Gifts for Men
These gifts are for your yogi, yoga-practicing dad, or your yoga crazed husband. They’re great gifts for beginners and seasoned yogis alike. Who wouldn’t want new high-quality things like a cork mat, blocks, or workout program?
Man Flow Yoga Cork Mat
A perfect gift for yourself or your man. It’s a soft, no-slip cork yoga mat that’s thicker, wider, and longer than traditional mats; a heavy-duty, long-lasting yoga mat made from premium, sustainably-sourced cork and rubber, and featuring an optional built-in alignment system for perfect alignment in every posture. The best cork yoga mat you’ll find on the market. It’s a monster mat that’s 80″ x 26″, which means that even if he’s 6-foot, he can still stretch out on it.
Guyoga: Beginner’s Yoga for Men
This is the ultimate beginner’s yoga for men workout series. Specifically designed for people that don’t normally do yoga, it focuses on postures and exercises with modifications for inflexible guys, so you can get all of the benefits of yoga, even if you don’t have the flexibility yet. 4 workouts, 2 bonus workouts, the Guyoga Road Map, and no-music versions of each workout come with your purchase of Guyoga on the Man Flow Yoga website. Use the code “Movember15” for 15% savings the entire month of November in honor of Men’s Health Month.

The Knotout Set
This is a game-changer that will completely transform your mobility. Release muscle knots, improve mobility, and get STRONGER. Use the code “ManFlowYoga” at manflowyoga.com/knotout and get 25% savings off your total order. If you really want to go all out with mobility, I would also recommend picking up a Large KnotOut, which is great for larger muscle groups such as hips, glutes, and chest.
The Cross Symmetry System
Whether you’re a yogi or a weight lifter this powerful at-home system can compliment anyone’s training regiment. It’s easy to use, easy to set up (wraps around a door), and does wonders for your shoulders. I’ve struggled with shoulder problems for nearly a decade and this system was able to target the weak muscles needed to stabilize and bulletproof my shoulders.
Awesome Fitness Gifts for Men
Even if you’re not into doing warrior 1 and would rather lift weights, here are some awesome gift ideas for your fitness geared mans.
Swannies Blue-light Blockers
Honestly, I didn’t think that I would use these glasses as much as I do now. But I notice the difference so clearly that my body now itches to use them. Looking at screens or bright lights of any kind (tablet, computer, TV, phone, etc) can negatively impact your sleep. During the day, staring at a computer screen for hours can give you a headache, strain your eyes, and make you feel stick to your stomach. That’s all changed since I started wearing blue-light blocking glasses. I now can stare at a computer screen all day without feeling eye strain. If I need to view a screen at night, I can do so without worrying about my sleep suffering as a result of blue-light exposure. I wear these glasses for a minimum of 2 hours per day, even longer if I’m doing a lot of computer work. I can’t recommend them highly enough. They also make an excellent gift idea. 😉
MarcPro Recovery Electrical Stimulator
E-stim was something that, until recently, was only used in physical therapy offices. Now, top athletes and performers are recognizing it as a tool to help speed up recovery and get stronger. I’ve been using this for the last few weeks and can confirm it relieves soreness and helps me return to activity more quickly. Use the code ‘mfy’ for $30 savings off your order.
I’ve tried out a lot of workout shorts. Most stay comfortable for an hour or two, but then inevitably start to itch. These are different. I’ve worn these for an entire day and night of traveling, and I didn’t feel uncomfortable once. Great for anything, up to any task, these shorts will quickly become your favorite pair of workout or lounge apparel.
Sauerkraut from Cleveland Kraut
Most of us are familiar with the benefits of probiotics. Gut health is a huge topic these days in the health & wellness industry. But not many of us think of sauerkraut and think, “Mmm… so tasty!” These guys are doing just that. I don’t think I’ve ever liked sauerkraut, but Cleveland Kraut features “crafted fermentations” like curry-flavored kraut, a sriracha-infused kraut, whiskey dill, and a garlic-flavored kraut to make this once boring probiotic into a delicious, healthy alternative to salsa. I use this on eggs, sandwiches, and even on pizza. Best of all, they ship all over the country. Use the code “ManFlow!” and get 10% off your purchase.
Orgain Protein Powder
I’m not a vegan, but I love using this vegan-friendly protein powder. It doesn’t have any dairy, which means it’s easier on your digestive system, doesn’t slow you down with lactose, and helps you stay regular. Mix it with pretty much anything and it will still taste awesome.
The Vitamix is an investment that I put off for far too long. It is now a tool that I use every day, whether it’s for making Bulletproof coffee, a complex vegetable-based smoothie, or a basic protein shake. This blender will outlast and out blend any comparable device. If you’ve been thinking about getting one but haven’t quite pulled the trigger, trust me – it’s worth the hype.
Wireless Headphones – Beats by Dre
Hands-free phone talks and wire-free music/podcast listening enjoyment are two amazing things that are solved with these headphones. I’ve used these for workouts at the gym, yoga workouts, podcast interviews, and almost all of my phone conversations. They have a great battery life (probably 6-8 hours), are extremely simple to connect, and the quality is great as well. If you don’t have wireless headphones yet, these are a good pair to get you started. Prices are getting lower every month!
Sleep is the most important aspect of your health, and if you aren’t sleeping in total darkness then your body isn’t getting the best possible sleep. These are the exact curtains I have in my own bedroom, and I’ve been sleeping like a rock for years now because of it. Click here to check them out! PS – Don’t forget the earplugs!
The Bulletproof Cookbook
This is a great cookbook filled with Bulletproof-friendly recipes to help you perform at optimal levels. The Bulletproof Diet emphasizes healthy fats, protein, vegetables, and minimal carbs, which is exactly what you need to build muscle, burn fat, and think like a chess champion. I’m also a Brand Ambassador for Bulletproof, and love their brand as a whole. This is a great example of what they do.
Becoming a Supple Leopard
Kelly Starrett is THE man when it comes to mobility. Much of my content for The Mobility Project was influenced by the exercises I’ve learned from him in this book. If you are interested in developing the knowledge to become your own massage therapist, this book can save you hundreds of dollars and teach you techniques you’ll lose for the rest of your life.
We’re not meant to have cushions and support for our feet – our feet evolved to do that themselves. Get some barefoot shoes to start strengthening your ankles, your calves, and relieving pain in your knees. These are the ones I use. Order a 1/2size smaller than you’re used to – you want them to be snug!
Sleeping and finding quietness are two essential activities to our overall health. These earplugs block out sound more effectively than any other earplug I’ve tried. Improve your sleep, get more done, and improve your focus with these little stocking stuffers.
Hope you have some good ideas for Christmas gifts now! Don’t forget to use the promotional codes for each product to save a few bucks – they are displayed in the paragraph below each product.

Great ideas, Dean!
Excellent ideas – love the MFY shirts, add a baseball cap for to/from gym wear in 2017
Like your gadgets, Dean
Never used earplugs during the day to get work done, great idea, definitely will be trying that one!
