Since I was a homebody long before the pandemic, these are all items that I use and love and some I have used for many years. Usually everyone is entering hibernation mode during the cold winter months, but add on a pandemic and you’ve really got some homebody situations, even if they are forced. Listen, my home is my sanctuary and I absolutely LOVE being at home. There are a few things that would make great gifts for the homebody and I am here to tell you I would be happy to get any of these items!
ONE: Pillow iPad Holder – I originally ordered the pillow iPad holder for myself and it was quickly confiscated by Rob to watch his nightly YouTube shows he falls asleep to. Now you won’t see Rob in our house without toting around the iPad pillow pal and he has 15 different kinds of panic attacks if he can’t find it.
TWO: My Green Mattress – Affordable healthy organic mattresses. Handcrafted in the USA in our GOTS and GOLS certified factory. Safe, healthy, non-toxic and eco-friendly. They are currently running a sale on their mattresses where you can get $175 off a Natural Escape or $125 off a Hope, Kiwi, or Pure Echo Mattress. We have the Natural Escape King mattress in our bedroom and absolutely love it.
THREE: Laptop & Device Sliding Camera Stickers – I am always so shocked that people still don’t know about these cheap little sliding stickers that go right over your laptop, phone, and iPad cameras for privacy. Since we are all in this new zoom and videoconferencing world, it’s scary to think that you might accidentally have your camera on when you’re not supposed to, and these stickers give you the assurance that no one can see you unless you want them to.
FOUR: Whoosh Screen Cleaner– I randomly bought this earlier this year and have used an entire bottle and I’m now on my second bottle. I love this stuff for cleaning my phone, laptop screen, our frame TV, and pretty much any other electronic in the house. I don’t know how, but my laptop gets so dirty and nasty and this stuff is a savior when I need to clean my screen.
FIVE: Weighted Throw Blanket – Listen, no one is gonna be a certified homebody in the winter without a weighted blanket. I got a weighted blanket about 2 years ago and I’ve never looked back. I literally cannot sleep unless I have my weighted blanket, which is fine now that I don’t really travel anywhere, but it was becoming quite the problem back when I was traveling and trying to tote around a 20 lb blanket in my bag 😛
SIX: Pura Plug-In Scent Diffuser – this is new to me because traditionally I am only used to the stanky glade plugins that hit you like a wall of cinnamon apples when you walk into my Mom’s house. I love home scents, but I am ohhhhhh so picky about the scents and how strong they are. This Pura Plug In has several popular scents you are probably familiar with and it connects through an app on your phone so you can control how strong and what scent to diffuse.
SEVEN: Ring Plug-In Indoor Camera – we have several of these around the inside and outside of our house and I think they are so great not only for home security, but also for pets. I stalk my dogs on these, even when we’re all in the same house 😛 If you are home a lot you can put these outside to warn of any intruders or solicitors, and also stalk the delivery people so you can get your packages as they arrive.
EIGHT: Tyler Scented Laundry Set – do you have a friend that you aren’t sure what to get for a gift this holiday? I have the perfect solution! This Tyler set comes with three of their popular scented laundry detergents along with their matching candle! I personally love all 3, but my favorite currently is High Maintenance.
NINE: SLIP Silk Pillowcase – Similarly to the weighted blanket, I also cannot sleep or travel without my silk pillowcase. I now own at least 4 or 5 of these so that there is never a time when I’m without one. These are great for your skin, hair, and honestly just feel nice and cool and smooth. I cannot imagine sleeping on a regular pillowcase ever again!
