For meditation you don’t really need anything except an open mind. But there are a few highly rated meditation products. They can add to your meditation experience. They also make great gifts.
This bowl set by Ohm Store retails for about $20. It includes a 4 inch hand-hammered singing bowl, a wooden striker and a hand sewn cushion. The bowls and the striker are used to create soft sounds that help to calm your nerves and clear your mind during a traditional meditation session. The bowls are small enough to fit in your hand, so you can close your eyes and use them while you meditate.
You may want to try using a meditation cushion, such as this one by Bean Products. It comes in 2 different sizes and you can choose the filling among several fillings -- organic buckwheat, cotton, or hemp. The cushion has many color options, including red, burgundy, black, brown, tan, yellow, orange, green, and pink. This is great for meditation and yoga, offering a comfortable place to sit other than a bed or chair. The cover can be removed and washed when needed.
Incense is sometimes used to create a calming scent in the area where you are meditating. You will be focused on just the scent coming from the incense sticks instead of other scents around you that can confuse you and veer your concentration in different directions. This set of 10 incense sticks is just $10, and are scented with chamomile, vanilla, and sandalwood. These are relaxing and mild scents so they don’t overwhelm you.

This premium high-density thick mat material is anti-tear and long-lasting. It is also ½ inch thick so you can use it on a hard surface and it will still be comfortable to meditate on. There are quite a few different colors for you to choose from.
