Are you looking for a unique gift idea for the yogi in your life? Or a fun holiday project to do with your child?
As a former yoga teacher, I’m always looking for ideas to get my daughter interested in yoga. Yummi Yoga cookie cutters have been on my wishlist for a long time. The company was founded by Amy Dube, a mom who was inspired to combine her love of yoga and baking. Yummi Yoga products are made here in the U.S., in the state of Vermont! This year, instead of making traditional Christmas cookies, we made gingerbread people practicing yoga!
The cookie cutters are very sturdy, just the right size, clean easily, and the poses are actually realistic.
- gingerbread dough
- sprinkles, candy
- edible markers, optional
- icing, optional
- parchment paper
To keep things simple during the holidays consider purchasing pre-made gingerbread dough. We also had gumdrops, sprinkles, some round rainbow candy, and edible markers.
My daughter and her friend were so excited to get started!
The dough was a little too thin and we had trouble trying to pick up our cookies to put on the baking sheet. They kept losing their limbs!
Make the cookies on parchment paper. So, instead of having to lift the cookies and risk ruining their shape, we simply placed the parchment paper directly on the cookie sheet. Next, we put them in the oven to bake for about six minutes and that was it. Easy-peasy!
While you might think these cookie cutters are only good for making gingerbread men, the possibilities are endless…
How about some yoga pancake people?
Or, treats for the birds…
And, they’re also perfect for experimenting with play dough!
Other inspirational projects can be found over at the Yumi Yoga Blog such as Christmas tree ornaments, beeswax candles, pumpkin carving, and more!
Yummi Yoga’s newest product is cutting boards. They’re the next thing on my wishlist. They are made of top quality Ash wood with an exclusive driftwood teak oil finish. Right now they are on sale for $10 off. Better yet, if you order one by 12/18 you will get a FREE yoga cookie cutter!

I was given one free cookie cutter in exchange for this post, however these opinions are my own and I don’t recommend anything I wouldn’t buy myself. (In fact, I was so happy with my first cookie cutter that I purchased two more!)
