Shopping for the guys can be hard, but it just got a little easier for those of you with yogis in your life. A lot of yoga products are designed for women, but I’ve searched out some that make great gifts for your yoga man (or yourself!).

1. Extra-Long Premium Yoga Mat by Manduka

These mats are constructed to last much longer than your average, disposable yoga mat, and reduce slippage, which explains their cult following. This extra-long mat is perfect for tall men.

2. Yogitoes Skidless Towel

Guys sweat, sometimes a lot, and this can make for a slippery situation in yoga class. This new “it” yoga accessory promises to reduce slippage on your mat.

3. Klean Kanteen Insulated Bottle

5. Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude

Humor writer Neal Pollack’s chronicle of the transformative effect yoga has had on his life. Don’t worry, it’s still funny.

6. be present Baja Pants

Calf-length pants that easily go from the street to the mat. These are made from “Breathe Weave” fabric, which dries quickly even after a sweaty class.

7. Manduka Mat Sling

Let’s face the facts: Most yoga mat bags are designed for women. They resemble hand bags and come in beautiful silky fabrics. So how’s a guy supposed to get his yoga gear around town? Here’s one option: A stripped-down mat sling with a cool accessory pouch for your what-nots. Problem solved.

8. Prana Momentum Shorts and Pants

A blend of organic cotton with a touch of spandex makes these practice pants form-fitting without being skin tight, which is what I hear the menfolk like. I see a lot of these around the yoga studios.

9. Lululemon Metal Vent Tech Shirt

Guys can Lulu too with this stink-resistant shirt made from wicking fabric. Looks like a classic tee, but is enhanced with the benefits of high tech performance-wear and that special Lulu juju.
