Living green plants are popular for good reason, they bring life energy into any home. It’s hard to go wrong with gifting a plant.
Be sure to select a plant that’s easy to care for, especially if the recipient is a plant newbie. You can make it extra special if it’s a cutting from a plant you have.
To add more feng shui inspiration, stick with soft, rounded and heart-shaped leaves (avoid prickly and sharp plants). Some easy to care for feng shui approved plants include: pothos, monstera, and pilea peperomioides.

For a higher end feng shui gift, a singing bowl is a great option. Even a small bowl is a treasure that is not only beautiful but can be used to clear a space.
The sound vibrations from a metal or crystal bowl resonate and radiate out to clear and balance out the energy of a space. The sound awakens any stuck or stagnant qi, creating movement and energy.

Wind chimes are used in feng shui to awaken the metal element, which inspires joy and calls in benefactors.
For feng shui use, it’s recommended to select high quality wind chimes that make beautiful sounds. In this case, the larger the better, while still being appropriately sized for the space.

Feng Shui Crystal Ball
One of the most useful feng shui items for your home is a feng shui faceted crystal ball. Ideally you want to find a 40mm (or larger) ball made of leaded crystal.
There are many applications, but in general, it can be placed in the center of any room to instantly uplift the qi. Be sure to instruct the giftee to hang it from a red ribbon or cord, from the ceiling in the center of the room you want to enhance.

A statue of the Buddha, or any deity, is a spiritual reminder in our homes. The image of the Buddha can inspire you to be mindful and wake up, to appreciate the beauty in our everyday life.
A statue is also an earth element object as it has weight and stability. In turn, a Buddha statue can ground and balance the energy of mindfulness in a home.

Space Clearing Mists
Space clearing is a frequent practice in feng shui. It’s recommended to regularly clear your space of any residual negative and stuck energies. Space clearing mists are a great option for those with sensitivities to smoke and/or fragrances.
Mists are also perfect for friends that travel often. This offers a way to smudge when you don’t want the smoke! Three favorites include orange, palo santo, or white sage.

Traditionally, you space clear by smudging with botanical ingredients that you burn. Palo santo is a wood that’s easy to burn with a light and fresh scent that most find pleasant. It’s also light enough to use on a regular basis.
This is an especially helpful gift for someone who has a lot of people or energies coming in and out of their home (like family or friends).

A simple feng shui adjustment for focus is to place a small 3" round mirror above the crown of your head on the ceiling at your desk or meditation space.
