Meditation Gift Ideas

1. Buddha Board

The tagline for the Buddha Board is “Master the art of letting go” which you literally have to do when you use this unique item. Think of it like an Etch-a-Sketch or a dry erase board: you can draw anything on it and it’s not permanent. But the Buddha Board takes it to the next level–you don’t choose to erase your image or words, instead, the “ink” fades over time reminding the user to live in the moment

The Buddha Board is very simple in its design and use but impactful in its meaning. Water is used as the “ink,” appearing as black strokes on the surface. It’s the perfect gift for artists and writers. The board can be used to write down the day’s worries and anxieties, so you can just watch them fade away. It’s also great for sketching and drawing while refocusing the mind.
