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 2020.
Sure, we’ve all been at home a lot this year and while we’re sure many of you want to experience concerts and movies and all the crowd-pleasing fun we all miss, this gift guide is filled with all of the cozy and thoughtful items that make it easier for anyone to stay home and stay safe.

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.
Unique Gifts for Those Who Like to Stay Home
I have been a Color Happy subscriber since it launched last year and the three 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 online paint classes many times on our website. She’s a local paint teacher who streams online paint classes via her Patreon membership. For $15-$35/month you can paint from the comfort of your kitchen. Be sure to tell her Megan and Wendy sent you!
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.
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. (even though that’s a terrible habit!)
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. Holiday scents will be announced soon. Tell Tabatha that Megan and Wendy sent you!
Don’t miss the coffee sleeves and cozy desk pads from Michelle of SeaLestialShel. She’s also introducing ADORABLE storage baskets just in time for the holidays. They make the perfect at home desk accessories. (Plus she has super cute face masks if you need to re-up your supply!)
