Through the years I’ve done enough quizzes and read enough books to know that I’m more of an introvert than an extrovert. Most of these points apply to me. I can try to tap into my extrovert side for events and such, but my general way of being is introversion and I’ve made my peace with it. I am happiest at home, with small groups of family or friends. Comfort matters, inner peace and a calm home environment are everything to me. If you know someone like me (or you’re one of my people) then you may love these gift ideas. There’s still time to get some of these orders in before Christmas!
The Comfy — a product named so accurately! Maybe you first heard about it on Shark Tank. If you’re at all skeptical, I can tell you, it’s like wearing your favorite blanket. So plush and thick. Perfect for homebodies in winter climates. Ideal for couch naps.
Lamo Serenity slippers — Lamo is an California footwear brand that specializes in plush, comfy moccasin type shoes. These Serenity slippers are fluffy and cozy with a nice tread so you can wear them outside (if you’re into that).
Colonel Popper — I was so skeptical about this silicone popcorn popper but I honestly love this thing! This would have been perfect back in my office cubicle days. Just pop it into shape, add the lightest sprinkle of oil and your popcorn kernels to the bowl, cover it and put it in the microwave. Pop, pop, pop and there you have it. The perfect serving size of popcorn in a bowl with handles, ready to enjoy.
Gurunanda essential oils — If you’re spending a lot of time at home or in your home office or safe place — whatever it is for you — you want your environment to smell great. I’m a big believer in aromatherapy and its ability to influence your mood or increase your ability to be calm and relaxed. I’m a fan of the Gurunanda brand in general, and this Whole Body Essential Oils set gives you specific oils to improve your health from your head to your feet.
Lands’ End pajamas and monogrammed slippers — Lands End is such a venerable and respected brand for stuff like flannel, of course their pajamas are incredible! I recently got sent a pair and I’ve been living in them ever since. They came in such cute packaging with a ribbon. I also like that their clothes come in plus size, petite plus and tall plus. Their customized slippers are so plush and comfortable. A great gift idea for the person who has everything and likes to be comfy and cozy at home.
Timber Ridge Folding Wagon — as a relatively introverted person who lives downtown, I have wanted one of these soft sided wagons for years. Why? Because it reduces my need to ask for help carrying stuff. It’s got big wheels to make it through sand for the beach or over rough, snowy sidewalks downtown. Plus it folds up nice and small for apartment dwellers. If you don’t have a car, this thing is a lifesaver.
Soft Surroundings hug me cardi — If its coming from a store called Soft Surroundings, it needs to deliver and this cardigan sure does! It’s so plush and fluffy. It reminds me of those trendy teddy coats but in a softer, shaggier cardigan version. A solid cardi for lounging on the couch.
A real journal — I just completed Glow, a journaling course by my friend Karen Waldron and it brought me back to a place of valuable introspection. Journaling rocks. It’s a way to look inside yourself, to examine your own history, to gain a greater knowledge and understanding of yourself and life. Real introverty stuff. I say treat yourself or your introvert/homebody friend to a beautiful journal for big dreams and intentions. World Market has these gorgeous ones with these embossed metal covers, just gorgeous! And slightly over $25 which is why they didn’t make my World Market gift list.
