    Translux / Via giphy.com

    From snuggly PJs and wireless headphones to sweatshirts that say what you're really feeling, these items are about to (quietly) rock your world.

    1. A five-year diary that will give you a good reason to carve out some daily me-time.

    Amazon

    Journaling can be very soothing and therapeutic — I swear by it. If you're looking for a way to unwind from a busy week full of socializing, this is a great place to start. This version features pretty watercolor celestial artwork on the front and glitzy gilded edges.

    Promising review: "This book is gorgeous in person. The photos can’t do justice to the way it catches the light or the way the padded cover feels in your hands. It’s small enough to carry with me which, makes it much more likely I’ll remember to write in it. The inside is as nice as the outside and the pages have character without too much distracting detail. I’ve had a five-year journal before but I’m truly excited to start writing in this one." —Eros

    Get it from Amazon for $13.77.

    2. A pair of fleece pajamas, so you can experience the utmost comfort while binge-watching The Great British Baking Show.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    ...or whatever you've decided to watch to celebrate your friends rescheduling brunch to next weekend. This set comes in so many fun prints! Whether you go for the taco pattern or the mermaids, you'll love lounging around in these bad boys.

    Promising review: "I got the Night Owl pair of these for Christmas, promptly put them on, and didn't take them off for the next two days. These are quite probably the softest, most cuddly thing I have ever worn in my entire life. They are so unbelievably warm and soft, and have just enough stretch to follow your movements without being restricting. I loved them so much that I bought another pair on my own, the Sweet Heart. They, too, are so very comfortable that I may never leave the house again." —jayamama

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98+ (available in sizes S-4XL and in 32 styles).

    3. A sign that reads "Let's stay home" that will let any visitors know exactly what your ideal plans are the moment they set foot in your home.

    Etsy

    The next time someone asks, "What do you want to do tonight?" just direct them to this sign hanging up in your bedroom. This sign is simple, but will quickly become a favorite piece of any introvert's home decor.

    Get it from rootedngroundedhome on Etsy for $51+ (available in five sizes and four colors).

    4. A Kindle e-reader, so even if you're out in public you can take a break and escape into another world.

    Amazon

    The Kindle has made it easier than ever to get lost in a book no matter where you are. It's light, features a no-glare screen, and won't distract you with any notifications. It's a bookworm's dream come true!

    Promising review: "The screen is sharp and looks just like paper, the more light hits the screen, the better it looks. This definitely makes me not regret all the book purchases I have made through Amazon now that I can read them on here. The size is perfect and can be held with one hand easily. Wish I would have purchased this sooner, however I am glad I waited for it to go on sale. If you enjoy reading, even in the slightest, don't hesitate to pick one of these up. You won't be disappointed." —golfer12

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in black and white).

    5. A Coffee and a Classic subscription box for any homebody who loves to read as much as they love caffeine.

    Cratejoy

    I'm relatively new to coffee consumption (always been primarily a tea-drinker) but this subscription box has got me HYPED to expand my tastebuds. Each box comes with a classic novel, something to sip on, and two bookish items. You can actually choose whether you'd like coffee, tea, or hot chocolate! Obsessed.

    Get it from Cratejoy for $28.99 a month.

    6. A pair of over-ear headphones that will easily let you tune out the rest of the world. See ya, unwanted convos.

    Amazon

    Getting some alone time is as easy as throwing these headphones on. With over 12,600 five-star reviews on Amazon, you know they're the real deal!

    Promising review: "I waited over a month to write this review because I thought no way could these headphones actually be this good for the price. But I use them all day, every day, and I have never been more impressed with headphones under $50. I have sensitive ears with headphones and am super picky, but these are so comfortable I can sleep in them. They charge fast, are easy to pair Bluetooth or wire jack, and have handy play/pause and fwd/rwd buttons. Overall definitely worth the buy, highly recommend." —Whitney O'Neil

    Get them from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in seven colors).

    7. A vulgar adult coloring book, so you can relax and feel rebellious at the same time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Who wouldn't want to stay home and sit down with this Calm the F*ck Down coloring book? The act of coloring is soothing, but this book will also have you laughing as you flip through each page.

    Promising review: "I don't have enough words in my vocabulary to describe how awesome the drawings are in this book. Sometimes I want something intricate to focus on while the world around me is being annoying. Sometimes I want something quick and easy. And some days I just want to color in pictures with silly words. This book allows me to do all of the above. I seriously want to find the author and give her a hug. And maybe buy her a drink. Because she gets it." —MissyBissy

    Get it from Amazon for $3.87.

    8. A soft, basic sweatshirt that will make you say, "It me!"

    Etsy

    This sweatshirt is pretty self-explanatory. It looks super cozy and features a great design for anyone who would rather be home on their couch instead of, well, anywhere else. Aaaaand I'll be adding one of these to my shopping cart ASAP.

    Get it from LovenbirdDesign on Etsy for $28+ (available in men's sizes S-5XL).

    9. An 1,000-piece puzzle to devote your entire weekend to.

    Amazon

    One of my favorite things to do during the cold winter months is stay home, put on my comfiest sweatpants, and spend HOURS working on an intricate puzzle. Fellow introverts — you're gonna love this.

    Promising review: "This is a great puzzle! I thought it was going to be hard because the ocean was similar colors but it actually was not that difficult! There was enough variety that made it semi-easy to put together. This took me about a week and I am very impressed with the colors of it. As always, Buffalo game puzzles are great quality for the price! I recommend this puzzle and this brand I anyone who loves to do puzzles!" —Gracez

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    10. A 19-piece kitchen utensil and gadget set, so you can whip up your own fantastic meals instead of waiting in long lines to eat at a crowded, noisy restaurant.

    Walmart

    I'm sure that overpriced ramen place is fabulous, but have you ever made your own dinner and then proceeded to eat it in bed in your pajamas while watching Friends? Now that's what I call bliss. Thanks to this kit of kitchen utensils, you can live out your foodie dreams in the comfort of your own home.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty collection at Walmart for $14.88.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Cats and introverts go together like peanut butter and jelly, which is why these soft socks should be at the top of your wish list. They're whimsical and perfect for wearing around the house.

    Promising review: "What a pleasant surprise when I received the socks. They are even cuter in person than in the picture. I can't talk enough about the quality. Unexpected at this price. They are so soft and comfortable. If you know a cat lover, this is the perfect gift. And if you are looking for a fantastic set of socks, you just found it !" —Chippy

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $10.99.

    12. A yoga mat, so you can work on your downward dog pose at home without the judging eyes of other people.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    When I first started attending yoga I was SUPER self-conscious. I hated comparing myself to more advanced yogis or being under the watchful eye of the instructor. To practice my ~moves~ (or get a workout in without having to leave the house) I bought a yoga mat to use in the comfort of my own home. This one comes in a bunch of dazzling designs, so you can choose the one that makes you feel most *zen*.

    Promising review: "This is a great yoga mat. I'll admit I don't know what makes a great yoga mat or an adequate one or even a terrible one. Maybe the terrible ones smell bad and are slippy? Anyhow, I'm trying to find more *chill* in my life and I'm starting with some home-yoga (so only my cats can mock me). This does a good job of providing grip and keeping me 1cm off my floor and the cat hair that's on my floor. (I swear I vacuum, but you get in downward dog for more than 10 seconds and you can see lots of tiny tuftlets-of-love from my feline companions. Suggestions for the best de-pet-hairing-vacuum cleaner appreciated!). Anyway — it's a good mat and pretty. Namaste, y'all!" —AmandaHuggenkiss

    Get it from Amazon for $22.42+ (available in 34 styles).

    13. A T-shirt that is so spot-on you'll want to wear it every day as a reminder to society to LEAVE YOU ALONE.

    Etsy

    This shirt is simply magnificent. It has a touch of Disney flair (I see you, Ariel) and a message any introvert will relate to. It fits true to size and can be customized to feature any colors you like. It's perfect for you or any dinglehopper-loving, antisocial butterfly in your life.

    Get it from RusticaandRitzyHD on Etsy for $23.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 22 colors).

    14. A set of heavy flannel sheets that will make you late every morning because you simply won't want to leave your bed (as if you already didn't).

    Amazon

    I would argue that there are few things as satisfying as climbing under the covers to lay on top of fresh sheets. These flannel sheets take that experience and make it 10x better. The velvet flannel provides a luxurious feel you'll never want to leave. Sorry to your friend you were supposed to meet for brunch.

    Promising review: "Oh. My. Heavens. We had considered flannel sheets for years, and we even bought a set once, but had to return them because they didn't fit our deep-pocketed mattress and just gave up. We only want them when it's cold out, not all year long. So, the years passed and we had COLD sheets. This set was a game-changer!! They truly do have deep pockets and fit our queen bed very well. They washed nicely and are thicker than expected. Getting into bed at night with these sheets feels SOOOOOO warm compared to our other sheets!! Love these." —recycle-it

    Get it from Amazon for $51.71+ (available in queen, king, and California king).

    15. Joanna Gaines' book Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave, to give you inspiration for staying home but making it ~stylish~.

    Amazon

    If Joanna Gaines says I can stay home you better believe that's what I'm doing! In her latest book, the DIY diva explains how to create a home that reflects the personality of those living there. Use it as a guide to make your favorite place (home) more inviting than ever.

    Promising review: "I couldn't wait to get this book yesterday, and I love it already. It is another top-quality book with thick pages and binding and will last a lifetime. The images in this book are beautiful — exactly how I like to decorate. She didn't release this book with pictures to make you envious like the ones on Pinterest, she released this book to show how even *you* can design simple yet elegant spaces. I love the concept." —Noelanii

    Get it from Amazon for $20.43.

    16. A set of vulgar coasters, so on the rare occasion you decide to have people over you can not-so-subtly remind them not to ruin your furniture.

    Amazon

    As an introvert, a solid compromise is when your friends will come to your home so you don't have to leave. Except, then you're likely stressing out over people messing with your stuff. Cross one thing off your worry list by displaying these coasters for all to see.

    Promising review: "Really funny stuff, I like to serve drinks for my guests using these coasters, they make everyone laugh. And of course they work great and moisture does not get on our table. Great purchase if you're looking to have some fun with your guests." —Marina D.

    17. An anti-people-person enamel pin that will act as an extra layer of defense from that relative who's always asking, "When are you going to get married?" during the holidays.

    Etsy

    Whether it's your grandma or your cousin twice-removed, there's always someone looking to pester you about your personal life at family gatherings. Simply add this pin to your look to send a message before they get too close. Fingers crossed they can take a hint!

    Get it from rhubarbpaperco on Etsy for $10.

    18. A cozy blanket over 3,000 Amazon reviewers are obsessed with — so it clearly needs to be welcomed into your introverted life.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This blanket is machine-washable, luxurious, and hypoallergenic — aka a must-have addition to your safe haven of a bedroom. Good luck to anyone trying to convince you to come hang out after you've draped yourself in this and turned on Netflix.

    Promising review: "Un-freaking-believable! My family fights over this blanket. It's like being wrapped in a silky, feathery, warm cloud! It's even soft on both sides. I've been told to buy more so my family will stop fighting. It's simply like chicken noodle soup for your body." —Melinda Deas

    Get it from Amazon for $29.49+ (available in four sizes and 21 colors).

    19. A countertop garden that is a great at-home activity and will lend some fresh veggies and herbs (and extra oxygen) to your kitchen.

    Macy's

    When your friends ask why you can't come out tonight, just say, "Sorry, I have to take care of my plants." Thanks to this mini greenhouse, you can grow things like basil, parsley, dill, mint, and thyme easily in your in own kitchen. The AeroGarden even features a system to remind you when it's time to feed and water the plants!

    Promising review: "This is one of the coolest and also useful things I've seen in a long time. It is so easy to grow my own little herb garden right in my kitchen. It comes with everything to get started and I am already starting to see some green. I love this thing." —NicOh

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line exclusively at Macy's for $94.99 (also available in black).

    Read our full review of the AeroGarden.

    20. An Amazon Fire TV Stick, so you can convince your friends to come over to binge the next season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

    Amazon

    I think nearly every member of my family now has an Amazon Fire TV Stick. My sisters were fighting over one for a while until one caved and finally bought her own — that's how much we love this product. Movie marathons will never be the same after buying this little gadget! You can truly watch anything your heart desires without leaving your bedroom.

    Promising review: "We have cut the cord and are streaming all content on the Firestick. We have so much to watch! We have access to Amazon Prime videos, Amazon channels that we love, Acorn TV, Masterpiece, and Brit Box, Netflix and Hulu with live TV. This change over has been very easy and we are saving $80/month by dropping cable and using the streaming content apps." —walesgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    21. This shirt that somewhat discreetly lets the world know you would rather be alone.

    Etsy

    Hey, just because we're introverts doesn't necessarily mean we always want to sit in our house. It just means that when we do go out, we'd rather be by ourselves — as is depicted in this witty tee. Just think how relaxing it would be to go for a hike in mountains like these without trying to keep up with anyone else. Blissful.

    Get it from Noirepulse on Etsy for $17.95+ (available in sizes XS-3XL, in a unisex tee, women's tank, or sweatshirt, and in a variety of colors).

    22. A 42-pack of tea to keep you warm, snuggly, and caffeinated.

    Amazon

    I drink so much tea you'd think I was of British descent, so I can tell you after trying many brands that Harney & Sons makes a quality cup. This set comes with 14 different flavors in addition to honey crystal packs, so you'll definitely be able to find something that appeals to your tastebuds. Try the organic peppermint before bed!

    Get a pack of 42 from Amazon for $14.99.

    23. And a mug that is perfectly suited for sipping your tea out of while binge-watching The Crown in introverted bliss.

    Etsy

    Who doesn't enjoy a quirky mug? Especially one like this that is basically the introvert motto. Add this one to your collection ASAP!

    Get it from themuglyfe on Etsy for $13.99+ (available in two sizes).

    24. A crystal ~healing~ box that may help you bring good vibes into your favorite place — your home.

    Free People

    I have this crystal healing box and have given them out as gifts — it's a real winner. Each box comes with four crystals that have already been blessed and cleansed. There are five themes you can choose from, including tranquility, love, personal power, protection, and prosperity, so you can personalize it for whatever is going on in your life. The box itself has a motivational affirmation engraved on it that may just inspire you to get out of your introverted comfort zone (MAYBE).

    Get it from Free People for $26 (available in four styles).

    25. And a boyfriend pillow, because you can totally want to cuddle and be left alone at the same time.

    Amazon

    This arm-shaped pillow is here to keep you company this winter! It won't even mind if you want to watch every single season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey on an endless loop and it definitely won't mind when you want to order in instead of going out to a restaurant.

    Promising review: "The Boyfriend Pillow is super comfy, and it gives me more pleasure than my boyfriends ever have!! In the dark it acts just like a very sound sleeper, only moving if you move it. If you're lonely, this pillow will do the trick. As another reviewer mentioned, it doesn't talk, which can be a bonus." —ThorThunder

    Get it from Amazon for $29.94+ (available in three colors).

    26. A pair of memory foam slippers, so you can pad around your house like antisocial royalty.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Introverted or not, who wouldn't want a pair of cozy slippers that molds to your feet? With a wool-like fleece lining and a durable anti-skid sole, these slippers are pretty much essential for any homebody. Sign me uuuuup.

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical about these because I'm not a big slipper person — I prefer socks, but my new apartment floor is just too cold for socks alone. I shouldn't have worried, these are SO warm and very comfortable. I have size 9.5 feet, so these were a little bit small at first because the inner part hadn't been worn in yet. I think it will be fine as I continue to wear them. And I do wear them with socks. Overall I love these and I'm really glad I purchased!" —S. Raju

    Get them from Amazon for $19.90+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    27. A set of stunning ceramic bookends that will make both the introvert and the bookworm in your life giddy.

    Wayfair

    These chic bookends will help you keep your favorite reads organized from A to Z... literally. If you're anything like me, having a well-decorated home makes it feel even more inviting. I treasure my bookcase, and thanks to these accessories you will soon enjoy yours even more, too.

    Promising review: "They're perfect-sized and not too heavy. They help to add some depth, texture and style, and they look great in my bookcase! Very happy with this purchase!! Would recommend them." —Terri

    Get it from Wayfair for $31.99.

    28. A silk sleep mask, so if you're on a plane you can avoid an endless conversation with the person seated next to you.

    Amazon

    Whether it's the sweet elderly gentleman who would love nothing more than to tell you about his three precious grandchildren and their entire vacation plans or the anxious flyer who is looking to unload her fears on you, you know exactly what I'm referring to. Put up a blockade between you and any unwanted convos by slipping on this silky sleep mask.

    Promising review: "This works really well for side sleepers due to the slim profile and the fact that it doesn't have foam forming materials. The silk can get a little warm but that's the case with all sleep masks. Like the fit and the silk. Great product at a great price and will purchase again when the one I have wears out." —AA

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95 (available in 19 colors).

    29. A subscription box that will present you with puzzles and ask you to decipher clues to solve a monthly mystery.

    Cratejoy

    What could possibly be better than "exploring" a new city each month without having to actually leave your home? The Finders Seekers subscription box is perfect for introverts that crave a ~little~ adventure. It comes with fun puzzles, mysterious codes, and cryptic messages that are yours for the solving.

    Promising review: "I just finished my second box and I absolutely adore this new fun part of my life!! I love that it is challenging, but when things get too rough there is a wonderfully warm and helpful community to turn to for help. Love it love it love it!!!" —Stacey

    Get it from Cratejoy for $30 a month.

    30. A bookish tote bag great for any quick trips to the supermarket to stock up on snacks for a reading marathon.

    Etsy

    Ah, there are few things as satisfying for an introvert as brewing a cup of tea and kicking back to read an entire book in one sitting. This tote bag expresses those sentiments perfectly, so you can take that happy feeling with you even when you do have to leave the house.

    Get it from BookishGifts on Etsy for $14.96.

    31. A Nintendo Switch, so you can socialize as much (or as little) as you want from the comfort of your own couch.

    amazon.com

    What most people don't realize is that introverts simply like having me-time, we're not trying to fully isolate ourselves from all contact with the outside world! The Nintendo Switch is a great console to give those who are more ~reserved~ a chance to connect with others when they feel like it. You can play games like The Legend of Zelda on your own or join a friend online for hours of play on the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game. This product is a winner for everyone!

    Promising review: "The Switch is Nintendo's best device since the N64. I use my Switch every day. I commute by train so this has been perfect for me. There has never been a handheld this good. The transition to and from docked mode is seamless. The battery life is also pretty decent. Overall, it is a great device. Nintendo's back!" —Arjun S. Kahlon

    Get it from Amazon for $299 (available in grey or neon blue/red).

    32. A dad hat that subtly gets a message across to anyone that dares to encroach on your personal space.

    Amazon

    Can you not be breathing down my neck while I wait for my name to be called in the Starbucks line? The next time you're heading into a situation where someone is likely to be on top of you, throw on this hat to give them a piece of your mind (without actually having to open your mouth).

    Get it from Amazon for $18.49 (available in 10 colors).

    33. A doormat to express the feeling you get the moment you leave the sanctuary that is your house.

    Etsy

    This doormat makes me giggle — because it's so damn accurate. "Do you want to meet me for breakfast?" Nope. "Do you want to go to that new rooftop bar in the city?" Nope. "Do you want to leave your house ever?" Nope.

    Get it from TheCheekyDoormat on Etsy for $44.

    34. A bathtub caddy that will let you bring all of your necessities into the most solitary room of the house.

    Amazon

    You know where I most like to hang out in my apartment? The bathroom. It's the one place I can yell, "GET OUT OF HERE" and it is socially acceptable. I also love relaxing in my tub for over an hour, and chances are introverts like you do, too. Transform your next bubble bath sesh into something even more magical by using this caddy. It has a place for your cup holder, tablet, a candle, and your phone. What more could you need?

    Promising review: "Love this bath tray! I have had it for just a few days and so many people have already asked me where I got it. It has room for everything I need and makes for such relaxing baths! It’s pretty sturdy too." —MD

    Get it from Amazon for $26.98+ (available in two styles).

    35. And a "Do Not Disturb" sign, so you can ~politely~ let your roomies know when you're introverting.

    Amazon

    This is probably a good alternative to simply telling them to "stay the fuck out," right?

    Promising review: "GREAT!!! I purchased these because I recently moved back in with my parents and needed something other than a sock on the door for privacy. Not only do they give off a five-star hotel feel, they look good, and they have a great feel to them." —Martinez

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $15.99.

    Enjoy your solitude, and happy shopping!
