    Selectively social since [insert year of birth].

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A standard definition mug that every introvert is basically obligated to use. And for good reason — some people need it to be broken down for them.

    If I have a book in my hands, go away. If I look like I don't want to talk to you, go away. If you see me at all, abort interaction.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    2. An interactive create-your-own-world book to put their innate creativity and imagination to work, because introverts have some of the busiest minds out there.

    Promising review: "I gave this to my friend as a gift. She has always wanted one of the Wreck This Journals, so that's what I was going to buy her originally, but I found this book — it sounded a lot more like her. It is a book for people who love writing and telling stories. She loves it and said it is a perfect place to create her own kind of world." —Juliet

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44 or Barnes & Noble for $12.90.

    3. A loose, slightly weathered tank top for people who, unlike Ariel, would rather just be a part of their own world, by themselves, with their gadgets and gizmos a-plenty.

    Promising review: "Very comfy and has a great weathered look to it. Most people don't realize it's snarky until they look closer. Lol, I get compliments on the pretty mermaid and then I see it register on their face. Love it!" —Amazonoholics

    Get it from Amazon for $10.29+ (sizes S-XXL / four colors).

    4. A heartwarming three-wick candle that understands staying home and staying warm is always the best choice — choose from vanilla, pumpkin, and marshmallow or smoked cedar, clove buds, and warm rich embers, or just get both!

    Promising review: "It has the convenience of slow cooking but is small enough that you don't have to make enough to feed an army and then have it over and over or have to freeze. Great for singles or couples, I'd say." —Joyce Chapman

    9. Heated narwhal slippers (via desktop and laptop USB ports!) that are 100% better alternatives to real shoes and going outside.

    Promising review: "Narwhals are my favorite, so I just had to get these. My house is very drafty and I'm always cold, so these slippers are perfect because they keep my feet nice and toasty. The cord is a nice length: I'm able to either sit at my computer with them plugged in or put my feet up on the couch with them staying plugged in. I've only had these for about a week, but they seem to be holding up rather nicely considering I've been wearing them every day​." —Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $42.99 (one size fits most / also available in a light-up, non-heated version).

    10. A simple and calming reminder (solid brass with 14-karat gold plating, FYI) inspired by one of American poetry's most renowned and brilliant introverts.

    “I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.” ―Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

    Promising review: "Like many people, I bought all the name brand noise canceling headphones to avoid the high price of Bose. They all fell short somewhere. Then I broke down and went all out on the Bose. In one word, WOW!" —Richard Giguere

    17. An ingenious hooded travel pillow to give chatty plane/train/bus neighbors a very clear message — sorry Carol, I'm not interested in hearing about your kids' talent show.

    Promising review: "One of the best neck pillows I've owned. It's inflatable so you can alter the firmness and the soft hood is great to pull up for privacy, to keep you warm, and to pull over your eyes to sleep. Been using this for travel but even more at home." —Jody L. Haggart

    22. A zany yet inspiring activity book that lets the reader become a co-author through doodling, lists, paper-craft projects, writing prompts, and lots more — solitary projects = A+.

    Promising review: "Being a disabled introvert, it's super hard to go out and make new friends. What makes this book so great is it celebrates being an introvert while also allowing you to feel connected to a community of people who deal with the same challenges. Every activity is set up to be a collaboration with the author, which I found to be really cool and clever. There are prompted journal entries, lists, single-player games, mazes, and word searches — 110 activities in all. And the best part of the book is co-creating a book that cerebrates them as a person. If you are an introvert you'll probably love this book. I know I do." —T. Bennett

    23. Plush onesies to prance around the house in 24/7 because what else would one wear? Separate tops and bottoms just aren't full coziness potential.,

    24. And finally a book that pushes you to do something outside of your comfort zone on a small, manageable scale — because whatever you do, be happy and proud of it!

    Promising review: "I love the daily prompts that force me to step outside of my comfort zone to become a bolder version of myself. Definitely a worthwhile purchase!" —Emma C.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.33 or Barnes and Noble for $11.58.

    (There's also a Do One Thing Every Day That Makes You Happy version.)

    But for now, we'll just hide out for a little longer.
