    Homebodies, unite.

    by ,

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A non-slip bamboo bathtub tray to truly spoil yourself at home: this has enough room for wine, books, candles, snacks, your favorite flowers, and most importantly — you!


    Promising review: "Only used once so far but item arrived quickly and just as described. I like that this extends wider than most bath caddies. My tub is 42" across from edge to edge and this had room to spare. The rubber feet that came with it ensured that it did not slip while in use. The trays are removable and it was plenty sturdy to hold a 32oz full coffee cup and a novel. Has a slot for your phone. There's a wineglass holder if that's your thing as well." —Staceyrella

    Get it from Amazon for $42.97.

    2. A New York Times Best of the Week crossword puzzle book to give drab Wednesdays a whole new look: this Wednesday edition contains 50 medium-level puzzles that'll keep the gears in your brain turning and the entertainment up high!


    Get it from Amazon for $8.98, Barnes and Noble for $10.79, or a local bookseller through IndieBound.

    Check out all of the other days' books too for varying difficulty levels and more ways to challenge yourself!

    3. An Amazon Fire TV Stick so you can cozy up and conveniently finish your favorite movies and shows (or start a new one). Or ask Alexa to do all the work for you (she can't make you popcorn but she can pick out something great to watch!).


    Promising review: "We hesitated to buy a Fire Stick for so long and I finally got one for our house at Christmas. So glad I did. It is very convenient to have all our TV apps in one place. We don't have to go and log into Netflix, and then exit that and go log into Hulu. Now if I want to switch from Netflix to Prime, I just push a couple buttons to move over into a new app. Another great thing is the ability to just say what you want to watch via Alexa. For instance, you can say, 'Tom Hanks,' and it will come up with all the movies he has been in. We also enjoy playing games on the Fire Stick. Many games are free and some require payment." —Thorsmom

    4. A temperature-regulating cotton bedding ensemble for the best dang sleep of your life. Because that's obviously the best part about staying home.


    This is 100% Hygro Cotton thread. The collection includes a sheet set (flat sheet, fitted sheet and one or two pillowcases) and a duvet set (duvet and one or two shams).

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusive at Macy's, for $79.99+ (available in four colors, and queen and king sizes).

    5. A vintage-looking five-year journal for some self-therapy — jot down your thoughts, clear your head, and have a little something to look back on when you're reminiscing on yourself five years from now.


    Promising review: "I used to journal and I've been wanting to get back into it. I just don't have the time. And it intimidates me, writing so much every day. This eliminates both problems. I write only a couple of sentences per day. It forces me to be creative and concise. I really have to think about what was most important for the day to write down. What will I want to look back and remember in the coming years? I find it thought provoking. This is just a great system. The book is quite small. It's very attractive looking. I love the ribbon bookmark, which is very functional." —Boxman

    Get it from Amazon for $10.17

    6. A height-adjustable laptop desk so you finally have a valid excuse not to leave your bed all day, even if you're not sick. This fits your laptop along with snacks, tea, a book, and more!


    Promising review: "I work from home a lot, and sometimes I love working on my couch. My legs were starting to get sore from the weight on my laptop and cooling fan, and I couldn't use my mouse of course. This little laptop tray is the best $30 I've spent in a long time. It makes working on the couch SO much easier. Thank you!" —T. Taylor

    Check out our full review of this laptop desk to learn why homebodies like us need it!

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99.

    7. A life-size wine glass that'll fit an entire bottle — it's a great gift for yourself that everyone will do a double-take at. A whole bottle never looked so good.


    Promising review: "Ordered this item as a white elephant gift over the holidays, and it was amazing! I paired this with a bottle of our friend's favorite wine, and everyone loved it! Great quality! Will definitely use this gift idea again in the future." —Kimsey

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97+ (available in eight designs).

    8. A deep tissue heated massager to spoil your limbs because that's so much more preferable to getting cramps and sore legs from being out all day.


    45 minutes is the max recommended time for any one area!

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying a massager online, but I guess I wanted to try anything at this point because the tension in my neck was so bad! I am using it right now for the first time and it's amazing. Just the right pressure and hitting all the spots that I have knots in. It's very warm, but I wouldn't say 'hot.' I can't wait to use this every night to relax!!! I am so grateful." —Jamie Shepard

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two colors).

    9. A combo pack of 16 K-beauty sheet masks that contain vitamin E and collagen for plump, hydrated skin. They target different concerns so you can choose whichever one your skin needs that day, kick back, and let the mask do its work while you chill with your favorite show or book.,

    I use these and absolutely love how refreshed and healthy my skin feels afterward. It also doesn't feel thirsty or starved for nutrients after, and my skin naturally looks brighter and dewier.

    Promising review: "These sheet masks are legit. I use one every night, it has been week one and my skin has never looked better! I haven’t had the confidence to step out without foundation in a while. After using these sheet masks consistently, I actually want to go out without foundation. My skin feels smooth, it looks soft, clear, bright, and glows! Not only does it work on me but my mom has been using them with me and there has been obvious improvement in her skin texture. After washing my face at night, I slap one of these babies on for 30 minutes and remove the sheet. Massage the extra essence into my skin and neck and I wake up with dewy, soft, supple, and glowing skin. My skin stays moisturized all day. I can’t live without these now. The price is so worth it for the results." —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four amounts).

    10. A monthly YA book subscription box that throws in self-care goodies so your stress levels from dealing with the outside world will go down because the outside world. Is. Exhausting.


    The box includes themed items like mugs, snacks, sheet masks, bath bombs, and more!

    Promising review: "I researched a ton of book subscription boxes before finding Unplugged Book Box. What sets them apart, to me, is their intentional focus on self-care. Each item in their box encourages you to slow down and to think about what self-care might look like for you. For some people it’s gratitude journaling (they’ll provide a word of the month and journaling prompts), for some it’s a physical act (such as applying a face mask) and of course, for many, it’s literally unplugging and getting lost in a great new book. They also talk a lot about the connection between self-care and overall health and wellbeing a lot on their website and through social media. I also think the box is a great deal, based on all my market research, haha." —Rhonda Leigh

    Get it from Cratejoy for $33.25/mo.

    11. Novel-themed black teas tagged with classic literary quotes to lose yourself in old eras, characters, and stories with a hot cup of rich, flavorful tea. Because the real world just doesn't cut it.


    The teas come with 25 quoted teabags. Reviewers note that it tastes great!

    Promising review: "I just fell in love when I saw this. I love finding unique gift items and surely this is one of them! My friend loves history and tea and I can't believe I found the perfect gift to represent them both. The design is perfect and just like described. And I love that they put quotes on them individually as well. Worth every penny. And the tea is just delicious." —Nora

    Get them from Amazon for $13.50.

    12. A copy of the Cravings: Hungry for More cookbook from the home-cooking queen herself, Chrissy Teigen. Use this to transform your tasteless meals into something much more mouthwatering. Your momma will be proud!


    Promising review: "I have always been a picky eater, but when I ordered the first Cravings book, I was pleasantly surprised by how many dishes I was willing to try. As soon as I saw the second book was going to be released, I knew I had to purchase. The recipes in this book check all the right boxes for me: comfort + flavor coupled with Chrissy's sense of humor. The pictures are vibrant and the recipes go into great detail for those who may not know their way around a kitchen. My only question is when is book #3 coming out??!!" —Nikole Marie

    Get it from Amazon for $16.49.

    Plus, you can always buy the original Cravings cookbook!

    13. A contoured eye mask made of bamboo and cotton so it won't put pressure on your eyes and every night will truly be a good night!


    This comes with a pair of Moldex ear plugs!

    Promising review: "I have large windows in my bedroom so I've been using sleeping masks in the mornings for years. I was a little skeptical of this one since it's a stiffer material, but it has ended up being the best one I've used. Since it's shaped to fit your nose no light slips in there like with other masks. It's also shaped to leave room around your eyes, so it doesn't put pressure on your eyelids. The material is a little stiffer than cloth masks, but it's still really soft and flexible so it's very comfortable even if you're laying on it facedown. If I ever need another sleeping mask I will definitely get another one of these." —Michael

    Get it from Amazon for $12.90 (available in six colors).

    14. A candle aptly named "Evening Unwind." So whenever that's what you're doing at home (which is every time probably), light this baby up and immerse yourself in the relaxing scents of green tea, blue lavender, and sugared musk.


    Get it from Homesick for $34.95.

    15. A lovely 48-pack Japanese stationery set so you can bring back the art of letter-writing because social media and socializing in person gets exhausting. Also let's face it, handwritten letters do NOT deserve to die.


    This pack comes with self-sticking envelopes so you don't have to worry about licking everything shut or using glue.

    Promising review: "Beautiful way to keep in touch. This lovely stationery is unique and surprisingly high quality for the price. The envelopes open from the side and are just as beautiful as the paper. They look like linen, and the colors are vibrant. I like how each pattern is wrapped separately." —Multiplayer Media

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    16. A Tweexy nail polish holder so you'll no longer risk spilling your polish and making a mess when you're just trying to get a nice manicure done.

    Instagram / Via

    Promising review: "Cool product! I've seen this before and finally decided I'd try it out. I like it a lot! I found it's great to use when I'm doing my nails on the couch or my bed where I don't have a flat surface to set the bottle. It fits a surprisingly wide variety of bottle sizes and shapes. I was worried my rectangular bottled polishes from Live Love Polish wouldn't fit but they do! This is great. It would make a great gift for anyone who loves painting their nails." —Simone

    Check out our full review of the Tweexy nail polish holder.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 17 colors).

    17. A set of cactus tealight candles so you get your succulent fix and candle fix in one.


    Promising review: "These are so cute and the gift box adds a nice touch. I used them to fill a pair of five-inch glass globe terrariums. Since there is not enough sunlight in my dark living room, I'm unable to successfully grow succulents. These candles are a nice replacement, and I think they add a more personal touch than fake plastic succulents since they are actually useful." —Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $7.85.

    18. A Knock Knock self-therapy notepad that'll help you work through the ugly feelings step by step in a lighthearted manner.


    Promising review: "Although this is clearly a humorous tool (to be used with a grain of salt) it's very helpful for calming down when I'm feeling really anxious or concerned over something. Sometimes, after I fill them out, I like to tape them up on my wall. The prompts 'How do you feel?' followed immediately by 'How do you *really* feel?' are very telling and encourage honesty with yourself." —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $9.40.

    19. A pretty celestial noodles bowl and chopsticks set to make those instant ramen meals feel fancy so you don't have to feel bad for not cooking again this week.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $10 (available in two designs).

    20. A pair of declarative crew socks that you can shamelessly strut around in. With 2,000+ five-star reviews, I'm pretty sure everyone else is doing the same.


    Promising review: "These socks are hilarious and the quality is great! I love them so much that I ordered all the other ones." —Alec English

    Get them from Amazon for $5.49+ (available in 95 styles).

    21. A pair of cozy memory foam slippers to complete your homebody costume, which obviously includes pajamas, your favorite movie/book, and a nice hot cup of tea or coffee.


    They're loved by 1,500+ Amazon reviewers who gave it five stars! Reviewers note these run a little small so order a size up.

    Promising review: "LOVE these slippers! They are so soft and comfortable. I agree with those who suggest that you buy your pair one size larger than what you normally purchase. Doing that keeps your slippers very roomy inside and keeps your heels away from hanging off of the back ridge. They feel safe on my feet and are very warm. They were packaged well and actually arrived BEFORE my expected shipping date! —Marjorie

    Get them from Amazon for $19.90+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in five colors).

    22. A scratch-off movie bucket list so you have even more of an excuse to stay home — you have to get through all these movies! There's also a little surprise image behind each scratch-off!


    Promising review: "I purchased this as a small gift to send to my boyfriend and it is perfect! He is a huge movie buff and has already scratched off some of his favorite classics, and now we are working through what's left on the list. I love the little images behind the 'scratch off' because they definitely go with the movie theme, but you never know what they're going to be!" —Anna Maddamma

    Get it from Amazon for $13+ (available in three versions).

    23. A 60" x 80" Rocabi weighted blanket that people swear by to help sleep better, feel calm and comfortable, and decrease sleep troubles, including insomnia and anxiety.


    Promising review: "Yes, I was skeptical about paying over $150 for a weighted blanket. We have an adult son with a long history of sleep troubles and this has made a great difference in his quality and quantity of sleep. I bought one for my husband and now we are trading off at night as to who gets to use it. The weight (we got 20 lbs) just settles on you and you can feel your frayed nerves just calming down and coming together. My sleep is deeper and I wake more refreshed after using the weighted blanket. I compare this to sleeping under four to five cotton quilts at grandma's house — the weight is just so comforting. I really recommend this as a non-pharmaceutical solution to sleep challenges." —Naomi M. Tsujimura

    Get it from Amazon for $179 (available in 11 sizes).

    24. A personal zip-up steam sauna so you never have to empty your wallet for super-expensive spas again.


    This has a 60-min timer!

    Promising review: "This is such a great alternative for folks on a budget. I've been using it twice a day for three days, approximately 30 minutes each use. Ah-mazing. Your head sticks out of the contraption, which looks pretty goofy, but actually makes the experience more tolerable AND I can set up my surface tablet in the bathroom and watch Netflix while I sweat. Acts as a timer. I usually cover the bottom with a towel. Place a chair inside, cover with a towel. Zip it up, turn it on. Ten minutes later I get in with a towel around my neck. Sweat for 30 minutes, then turn everything off and remove chair and towels. Shower. I haven't had any problems with drying the thing out as long as I put the towels down and remove them after use. I will spray it down with hard grain alcohol every now and again just in case. I'm going to take this on a trip with me and set it up in my hotel room, because setup is that easy. Definitely worth it. Does what it's supposed to!" —Jehren

    Get it from Amazon for $98.95.

    25. A matcha tea set to take your matcha-making experience to the next level. Use this to make a deliciously frothy cup of tea in the traditional fashion!

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    The tea-making and product care instructions are on the box. This set is made of all natural bamboo and is varnish and chemical free.

    Promising review: "It's a nice bamboo set. I'm such a matcha lover and only one thing I was missing it's a nice tea set for making my ceremonies even more joyful. This is a real bamboo set, good quality and just looks really quiet. Now I enjoy my matcha even more!" —Nataliia

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    26. And if you love matcha but have no idea where to start? This pretty matcha book of recipes has got it all!

    Barnes and Noble

    Get it from Amazon for $17.59, Barnes and Noble for $22.50, or a local bookseller through IndieBound.

    27. A crewneck sweatshirt that'll declare your brand to the world: Homebody, indeed.

    Calluna Market/Etsy

    Get it from Calluna Market on Etsy for $39.99+ (available in unisex sizes S–5XL and three colors).

    28. A moisturizing gel-lined gloves and socks set rich in Vitamin E and mineral oils. They'll smooth, soften, and treat rough hands and feet; it's like a mini spa for them., Amazon

    Use with lotion for an extra dose of hydration.

    Promising review: "Oooooh my gosh! These are amazing! They work wonderfully and smell like roses! Literally helped my hands and feet after one night of sleeping in them." —Andria

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    29. A statement tote bag that'll let everyone know you are busy this weekend. Busy daydreaming, that is.

    Barnes & Noble

    Get it from Barnes & Noble for $14.99.

    30. A deep pore-cleansing volcanic mask to exfoliate, remove sebum, and pamper your skin the way it needs.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I frequently use face masks and wash off masks and after days of scouring beauty/skin forums and after years of trial and error, the Innisfree volcanic pore clay mask is still one of the best masks I've ever tried. My skin is very oily and acne-prone, especially around the T-zone. I use this mask after cleansing. This mask does an incredible job of keeping the oil production down AND removing all the clogged up dirt, grime and other impurities that has built up in my pores. My face is markedly clearer after one use and many if not most of my blackheads have disappeared. —Mel

    Get it from Amazon for $11.92.

    31. A Fantastic Cities coloring book so you can travel vicariously through the pages while comfortably curled up in your home because you're not ready for a trip just yet.


    Get it from Amazon for $13.85.

    32. A green tea–infused Zinus memory foam mattress for a luxurious sleep experience and improved sleep quality. You'll want to come home right away every time.


    Promising review: "We purchased this bed only three years after having made the mistake of buying a $900 piece of junk mattress made by a major mattress brand. This mattress is AMAZING for a fraction of the cost. Let me just tell you, there has not been a morning since we have had this mattress that my husband or I have woken up sore, back aching, neck hurting, or any type of discomfort like what we were experiencing with our old mattress. This mattress makes it so hard to get up in the morning. We have never hit the snooze button so much in our lives." —Eric Sniders

    Check out our full review of the Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea Mattress (#7)!

    Get it from Amazon for $71.65+ (available in eight sizes and six to 12 inches).

    33. A facial roller to help your skincare products sink deeper into your skin and give your face a cooling massage. Sit at home and treat your face to...well, a treat!


    Promising review: "I really like both of these products, but the Gua Sha is my favorite. I use the roller in the morning to help reduce puffiness, and I use the Gua Sha at night for essentially a face massage. I found that the Gua Sha really helped release my sinuses which is great to help flush out any drainage or congestion. The packaging was luxurious, the price was very reasonable, and the shipping was on time." —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in two types)

    34. A copy of The Roommate Book. It uses humor and optimism to help you deal with the highs and lows of having roommates — and perhaps help you become homebodies together.


    Promising review: "I love this book! Very creative, cute, and hilarious. If you've ever had (or currently have) a roommate, you can relate to the advice, anecdotes, and hand-drawn pictures Becky has compiled in this amusing book! It's definitely done in her signature 'doodle nouveau' style, which makes this incredibly illustrative book a perfect addition to any book shelf or coffee table! Added bonus: Need to drop some subtle hints to your current roomie? This book makes a great gift filled with lots of passive dos and don'ts for all shared living situations!" —Austin L. Randall

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    35. A super soft throw blanket to curl up in and be so warm and cozy that you'll never want to leave your bed or couch.


    Promising review: "You know those nights where it’s too hot to stay under the covers, so you stick one leg out, only to realize it’s a bit too chilly for that? Well that’s where this blanket comes in handy! Not only is it a great accent piece to my bedding, but it’s soft and the perfect thickness for those cool nights! I’m going to buy more when I decide on a color!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in 18 colors).

    36. A small sound spa so you can fall asleep to soothing sounds like ocean waves, rain, and wind. With 20 sounds and 30 volume levels, you'll def find your sweet spot!


    This is portable and has continuous play and an auto-off timer between 1-7 hours.

    Promising review: "I love this sound machine. I'm a very light sleeper so any sound can wake me. What I like is no only the small size, but the sound quality is excellent and some of the sounds are so different and they sound so real. My favorite right now is Arctic wind. It makes me feel cold and snuggle into the my blankets and I can adjust the volume perfectly for me." —Kimsf

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    37. A set of vegan bath bombs loaded with essential oils so you'll leave the tub every time with smooth, silky skin.


    Each bath bomb packs a punch with organic essential oils like peppermint, sweet orange, lemon, rose, and lavender.

    Promising review: "Vegan and organic ingredients! They come individually wrapped in a very cute box (I bought it for myself, but it would make a great gift box). My favorite scents so far are definitely rose and lavender. I don't have a jacuzzi tub or anything fancy, but one bath bomb makes my entire bathroom smell wonderful and my body felt very relaxed after I step out of the tub. I pair this with my essential oils diffuser and it's basically a spa day for me. My skin felt really smooth after the bath. For the price I think it's definitely worth it!" —Shiberu

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $13.99.
