The Holiday Season is upon us, which means that it is that time of year when you will try to figure out what gifts to give your family and friends. If you haven’t considered stones and crystals in the past, you might want to put them on your list of gift ideas. Increasingly, Americans are looking at alternative health traditions to reduce stress, search for inward meaning, and have a better day-to-day outlook. For example, according to reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 14% of Americans have meditated in the past year. This is up from four percent just six years ago. As more people learn about the power of meditation and other ancient spiritual practices, the number of Americans who try them should continue to go up. Because of this, it might be a good idea to consider giving spiritual, meaningful gifts to family members and friends who have expressed an interest in meditation, healing crystals, and crystal jewelry to create better harmony in their lives. Rather than giving electronics or fast fashion that won’t be used or worn in a year, spiritual stones and jewelry can be lifelong gifts to help them achieve mindfulness and healing.
