home•bod•y – a person who likes to stay home
Sometimes nothing can quite make a heart happy like a Saturday morning in, full of pajamas, coffee, pup snuggles and all things comfort. For someone who lives and defines her life as always on the go from one place to the next, I admire and envy the people who find the balance in living simply and truly within the confines of their home sweet home! And this Holiday Gift Guide is just for that! For the homebody! A curated gift list for the people who truly thrive in the comfort of home sweet home!
So, ladies and gentlemen (Let me be real, pretty sure it’s only ladies here!) Unless you are a male reading this, then your lady might have sent you here for a specific reason ~ so keep reading!! (hint, hint!) BUT… this is the Gift Guide for all the people who find the joy and comfort of staying just right where we belong – Home. Sweet. Home. Sharing all the things on this thorough and from the heart Gift Guide for the homebody! Because I think we can all learn a few things from the people who thrive in the comfort of home. These are the same people that can find rest
I discovered the JOY and LIGHT of Rachel Allene earlier this year and can I just say that you need to do yourself a favor and take a look at her gorgeous shop! From her coffee cups (Which are GORGEOUS) and the cutest sweatshirts (which to mention are the MOST comfortable!) AND the just an array of so many make your heart happy things! And I can assure you that anyone would be THRILLED to receive something from her for Christmas!
Now this is a GOOD idea. Talk about HOMEBODY. What better idea than to gift a DoorDash gift card to your favorite homebodies. Talk about the perfect night in with a gift card to be able to enjoy your favorite local meal delivered right to your door. Also, special shout-out to DoorDash. This post is sponsored by DoorDash on behalf of Review Wire Media. Love the idea of how the perfect night in, or family Christmas movie night can be made even sweeter with your favorite meal delivered directly to your door. Allowing all of your precious time to be spent on the sweetest moments with family and friends.
Alright, I will truthfully admit that I had no idea what the hype was about until this past Nordstrom Anniversary Sale where I caved and bought myself my very own Barefoot Dreams Cardigan. And then I knew what it was ALL about! So if you really want to bless someone this Christmas do yourself a favor (and them!) and share the love of Barefoot Dreams! One of my favorite finds that would make the PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT for the HOMEBODY (and all without breaking the bank) are the Barefoot Dreams Cozy Socks. Less than $20 and perfect for the homebody!
If comfort wear could be a love language, well then sign me up! I love changing out of work clothes into comfort clothes and will be the first to admit to say that my collection is a little obsessive. But a definite YES for the homebody in your life and a must-have for the Homebody Gift Guide. Bring on the Sherpa pullovers, comfy pajamas and more for this gift guide dream!
Currently, Pink Lily Boutique has some of my favorite cozy collections. Especially in regards to their long-sleeve graphic tees and Sherpa pull-overs! Also, speaking of Sherpa, Amazon has significant and affordable finds as well! And let me just remind you that these items are seriously SO comfortable and would make for a GREAT gift!
And if all else fails, then Target is tried & true! Target line bless our hearts because this stuff is just golden!
I hope no one gets offended by the fact that I have an entire paragraph devoted to Campfire Socks on this Homebody Gift Guide. The truth is I have a LOVE obsession with all things cozy and comfort and that most definitely includes socks. My personal favorite would have to include the Campfire Socks at the Eddie Bauer Factory store! (They are like a giant pillow for your feet!) Additionally, more recently I found precious socks at Altar’d State. (I mean stunning!) And Target comes in clutch again with the cute and affordable prices for the gear for all the Christmas movie watching in!
I think the art of defining a homebody is pure contentment. And what better way to embrace the feelings of home + togetherness by gifting the Homebody in your life with a book or two or journal or three! Providing an outlet for imagination of the mind and pursuit of the dreams! Truthfully, I think books make a great gift!
This gift guide is all about the Heart of the Home. Curating a list specific to the people who thrive in the comfort of home! Therefore, this list is a collection of ideas and notions of what home means to me! Therefore, throw in a (safe + non-toxic) candle, magazine subscription, throw pillow (and/or) blanket and you are all set!
