    Introvert, homebody, anti-social. Whatever term is being used, they are simply people who want to be left alone! Introverted people dislike small talk and large groups. They like alone time and staying home!  But everyone likes gifts, even black belt introverts. We have a few introverts among the folks who create our gift guides, and they found 28 gifts for introverts who were socially distancing before it was cool.

  1. Stayin’ In Candle 
  2. gifts-for-introverts-candle

    When the forecast calls for “too peopley” outside, it’s best to stay home. Instead, light a nice candle, this one, and curl up with a book or Netflix. This soy candle is lavender scented, great for a relaxing night of self-care. The wick is lead-free cotton, and the candle has a burn time of 45-55 hours. 

  3. Necklace
  4.

  5. Go Away Doormat

    Some introverts like being around people well enough, but we want to be alone when we’re in our own homes. That’s the kind I am. This doormat does the work for me! The natural fiber doormat has a non-slip back and is available in two sizes. 

  7. Introverts Unite Coffee Mug

  11. Privacy Pod
  12. gifts-for-introverts-pod

    Bring this privacy pod anywhere you go where you don’t want to talk to anyone; family gatherings, sporting events, your office, the dinner table! I mostly put this one in as a little joke, but it does have more practical uses! The pod is great for changing at the beach, portable camping bathrooms, or showers. Left unzipped, it would be a nice rain shelter at a sporting event or Mardi Gras parade!
