    I have one of these and it is my favourite yoga mat in my collection. I got it because my yoga studio uses them as rental mats and I fell in love after one practice.

    Get it from Indigo for $84. Available in nine colours.

    9. This braided fedora with a super-wide brim that'll get them prepared for the sunniest days. Not only is it chic as heck, but it'll save them from getting a sunburn while they're gardening or kicking back on the deck with a mojito in hand.
