Many of the gift guides we’re writing this holiday season pretty much write themselves, but none so much as this gift guide for homebodies. Updated for 2021.
Sure, we’ve all been at home a lot and while many of us are starting to go to concerts and movies and all the crowd-pleasing fun we all missed, this gift guide is filled with all of the cozy and thoughtful items that make it easier for anyone who loves to stay home.

Homebody Gift of the Year
I have had my eye on this item for a while, but was waiting for someone other than a sponsored influencer to rave about it – and then it happened. A friend told me how much she loves her Pura diffuser and how she’s buying it for several people on her list this year.
The Pura diffuser is so much more than a glad plug-in, starting with the fact that you can get fragrance refills from brands like Nest, Capri Blue and Tommy Bahama. Add in the fact that it’s app-controlled, allowing you to set timers for when you would like your fragrances to be on, and IT KNOWS WHEN YOU GET HOME SO IT CAN START WORKING. Plus, it holds two fragrances at once, so you can have a work scent and a play scent.
Thoughtful Homebody Gift Ideas
When curating this gift guide, I added so many of the items below to my cart. There is a perfect gift for my husband, my sister, and my in-laws – even a few I’d like to see under the Christmas tree for myself.
Creative Gifts for Those Who Like to Stay Home
I have been a Color Happy subscriber since it launched and the new coloring pages delivered to my inbox every month remains one of my favorite things. This subscription is just $5 a month, and brings endless joy. Include a pack of Crayola SuperTips (best markers EVER) and you’ve got the perfect gift!
Another subscription to consider is MasterClass. MasterClass offers incredible classes in cooking, writing, sports, style, photography and so much more taught by celebrities and experts. I’m a huge fan and have taken many classes! This would make an awesome gift!
We’ve shouted our love for Timree Gold’s paint classes many times on our website. She’s a local artist who offers a monthly membership to her Timree Paint Club for $25. You get access to 150 paint lessons with 4 new lessons added each month. We miss her paint studio but it’s also fun to paint from the comfort of your kitchen table.
Fun, Relaxing Things To Make At Home
LEGOS, any of these Megan and Wendy approved board games and the Paint By Sticker books below are relaxing fun.
Don’t Forget Practical Gifts for Homebodies!
Eggtrong Powerbank Charger – This portable charger can charge up to three devices – including a laptop! – at once and is incredibly handy when you want to work on your couch and you’re nowhere near at outlet.
Extra Long Charging Cables – Pair these with the portable charger above and you’re set for all charging situations. I love the extra long charging cable for scrolling through my phone before bed while it charges.
Cable Markers – Rounding out the practical category are these cord protectors that also serve to identify which charger belongs to each family member. Assign everyone a color and immediately identify the thief when your charger goes missing.
Cozy Gifts to Give
For the “Netflix and Chill” crowd – literally – see what we love for cozying up on the sofa.
We also love any of the pure soy candles, hand-poured and hand packed from Oakmont Candle Works. This small business is owned by our friend. Seasonal scents include Fall Leaves and French Pear.
