Best Christmas Gifts for Homebodies

July 06, 2022 11 min read

If you're stuck for Christmas gift ideas for a friend, family member, or even a special someone, a cozy gift will never go unappreciated. Even the most outgoing extrovert appreciates a night in to pamper, reflect, and, yes, rewatch their favorite Netflix series. It's all like chicken soup for the soul, which is why one of the best Christmas gifts is to elevate that experience.

While everyone spends self-care nights differently, it's safe to say that there are a few staples that most of us enjoy: a nice long soak in the tub with epsom salts, a supportive pillow, and a rich glass of red wine; a stretch out on the couch cocooned by a plush heated blanket; the comforting sensation of a warm mug full of high-quality tea; and the ease of settling into a good book are just some.

The Christmas gifts for homebodies listed below will assist you in completing those vignettes for someone you care about (or heck, even for yourself, because we all need them every once in a while). And as the weather cools, the cozy vibes will only get stronger, so keep this list handy for when you need some new hygge inspiration.

1. Cozy Chenille Socks

The superior fuzzy sock that will not shed and will retain its shape after washing without losing softness. You'll want one (or ten) for yourself after gifting a pair.

7. Plush Robe

Who wouldn't want a plush, satin-trimmed robe that's basically a warm blanket with arms? It also has two spacious pockets and a secure waist tie for added functionality.

33. Neom Intensive Skin Treatment Candle

Stop what you're doing because we've discovered the most bizarre candle ever. It not only smells fantastic when burned, with notes of anxiety-relieving lavender, calming jasmine, and sedative Brazilian rosewood released, but the candle's hot wax is meant to be drizzled over your skin as a moisturizer.

34. The Flax Sleep Set

This set comes with a duvet cover, fitted sheet, flat sheet, and four pillowcases. This year, it's at the top of editor Rachel Bowie's wish list, who says, "my friends are raving about Flax, a new bedding brand." This is a text I received from a friend this week: "'One night sleep only, but I give it five stars." Given that the linen only gets softer with each wash, a rave review right out of the box piqued our interest.

Speaking of calming things down, we recommend giving this lavender grow kit to the sibling with four rambunctious children (because if anyone needs to relax, it's her).

57. Sophia + Sam Memory Foam Lap Desk

Take a look at this must-have item for the workaholic. This memory foam lap desk can be used anywhere and has a hard surface that keeps laptops from overheating. We're hoping that this will help with their achy back (because we can't keep hearing about it).
