Gift Guide 2014: For the Homebody

gift guide, this holiday, gift ideas under 75, gifts under 75, affordable gifts, gift guide homebody, gifts for the homebody, gifts for stay at home When I’m putting these gift guides together, I’m often thinking of things I would buy or would love to receive as gifts. Today’s guide in particular is absolutely perfect for me. My friends know that I’m a total homebody and I’ll frequently choose a cozy night in by myself over a night out. When I get home, first things first, I get into my comfies, and then I’m usually glued to my laptop or my latest read for the rest of the night. When I’m at home, it’s all about coziness and comfort, which is why I’ve included lots of soft, snuggly picks in today’s round-up. I like to unwind by brewing a cup of tea (or pouring of glass of wine if I need something stronger), lighting a fragrant candle, and getting lost in a book or TV show. If you have any friends that are homebodies, I hope this guide will give you at least one idea!

  • this is me too! i’m such a homebody and love being in comfy clothes. love #3!

    • I have a similar pair of pants as #3 and I wear them all the time. They are so cozy!

  • Ooh, I love #3, #7, and #14. Thanks for compiling the list!

    • Glad you liked it! :)

  • You read my mind! I have been looking for both #3 and #7 so may be scooping them up soon!! Can’t wait to see you on Sat! :)

    • YAY! See you tomorrow!

  • I’m a total homebody as well. That blanket looks so cozy and soft.

    • I love a good blanket. I have two on my bed, plus a duvet! :)

  • Joggers, for the win! :)


    • Agreed! They’re so comfy.

  • The homebody! That’s me!! I’m obsessed with tea, anything LUSH, and candles!

    • Me too! I’m hoping to have a cozy night in tonight :)

  • As a fellow homebody, I’d gladly take any of these items as Christmas gifts : )
    I love Lush products but rarely buy them for myself so I love receiving them as gifts. Same for lounge wear.

    • I’ve never bought any Lush products either, but they smell so great. Now I’m tempted to get a little bath bomb and treat myself :)

  • SHE Jenmarie

    This is just the coziest gift guide! Reminds me I need to get on watching more Christmas movies before its too late!

    • Thank you! I definitely plan to watch lots of Christmas movies when I get home next week :)

  • I’ve been meaning to read Eleanor & Park… one of these days!

    • I love that book. I hope you like it if you read it!

  • Imogen

    Great ideas, I am terrible and haven’t started.

    • Thank you Imogen! You’ve still got time :)

  • That’s me, I’m a total homebody. I love the cozy lounge pants and of course a good coffee mug.

    While in truth, I do not like candles and if I were to receive one as a gift I would never ever use it, that French Cade Lavender candle smells amazing.

    • Interesting! I didn’t know that you don’t like candles. What don’t you like about them?

      • I never get this overwhelming feeling that lighting a scented candle will enhance my mood or do whatever it is people like for them to do. I have one that has been sitting on my desk for probably 10 years. Why I don’t get rid of it, I do not know.

        • That’s so interesting! I light candles because I like the smell and I think they look pretty :)

  • aww cute picks. i like the tea tins.

    xo, Carla
