Many of us seem to find the men in our lives particularly difficult to buy for at Christmas. We ask them what they want and they shrug their shoulders. We’re bored of buying them the same old gifts from the same old stores. Here at Yogamatters, we’ve come up with a fantastic selection of different, interesting and practical gifts for men to help you find the perfect present. If you’re in need of inspiration, then take a look at these great gifts for active men who love yoga and love life.
We love the fresh and vibrant blue of this super cool V neck T shirt from prAna. You really can’t go wrong with a T shirt: a lightweight basic for everyday wear when it’s warm and a base layer as it cools.
And there’s a lot to love about this T shirt beyond how great it looks and feels: it’s made from a lightweight blend of organic cotton and recycled polyester and is Fair Trade Factory™ Certified.
Also available in Black and Cargo Green.
