How to spot a homebody?
You: “What are your plans for the weekend? Would you like to go out?”
Answer: “Emm… Nothing… but I will be unavailable”
(aka Netflix got new stuff – like, really good stuff. Watching the whole series of Santa Clarita Diet on a weekend? Sure! No problem!)
If this has already happened between you and your friend several times, guessing that he/she is a homebody is your best bet.
How do I know? Because I am definitely a homebody.
Homebodies are not boring people! They just enjoy the joys of home life, comfortable spaces where they can relax and get creative.
For example, I love lifestyle stuff, stationaries, cozy stuff, home decor.
There are a bunch of things we can do at home (that we just can not do other places).
Homebodies are also not loners (maybe some are, but not all, I am the living proof)!
For example, partying at home is a great thing! Card games, board games, chit-chat, cooking, baking, tapas-party, watching Netflix with friends and family are all great programs for a homebody!
I would also really enjoy pool parties at home if we had a pool or at least a garden and an inflatable kid pool.
I would like to throw themed parties like a Stranger Things party or a murder mystery party but I don’t have enough geek friends for these. It’s a pity.
In this post, I gathered together a bunch of things that are perfect gifts for homebodies.
What are the best gifts for homebodies?
Cozy clothing gifts for homebody teens
Oversized Hoodie Blanket
Dakota Water Resistant Slipper
Crossover Faux Fur Slippers
Cozy Lined Crew Socks
Teddy Funnel Neck Pullover Jacket
Teddy fur with kangaroo pocket: a perfect, cozy combination.
I tend to collect tiny whatnots in my pullover’s kangaroo pocket. It’s always full. But at least everything I need (and even those that I definitely do not need) is at hand.
High Waist Extreme Cozy Leggings
Sweater Weather Scrunchie
When we are at home it is easy to chill around the house without properly combing our hair and doing something with it to avoid looking like a cavewoman. With this scrunchie, we can avoid turning into a house monster.

Cute little gifts for the homes of homebody teens
Oil Diffuser and scented candles
Cinema Light Box
Quotes are really a thing now! The letters are easily changeable so writing our quote of the week (or even day) is a breeze. This lightbox also gives some extra light and warm to selves and desks. It can be put in a darker corner and voilà! Pop of light and encouragement!
Felt Letter Sign
String lights Photo Clip Lights
Wire Wall Grid
I don’t actually own a wall grid. Mine stands on its leg, but it is kinda same.
A wall grid is better because it saves place on a shelf and adds some decoration to an otherwise empty space.
Many things can be added to a wire grid: accessories, photos, polaroids, any clip-on peewees really.
New bedding gives a whole new feel to a room so every season deserves a new one.
Light color (I love plain white or light blue or pink) for warmer months and darker, cozier for colder ones.
I don’t really like patterns because depending on the other patterns in the room it can make the look overwhelming. The only exception is the Morocco style that I really love. But no small flowers, stripes, figures please! 😊
Polaroids can make the room decor personal in a blink of an eye. They also great for small rooms or wall parts because they barely take up any space.
Photos of summer vacations, family members (including pets!), friends can cover the wall telling a whole story if organized right. Some other pictures, printables, quotes can be also added to the collage.
I’ve always wanted a chalkboard wall but I have never had a chance to actually have one. There is not enough free space in my room for one. Pinterest is full of inspiration on this one, too!
Retro but in fashion. What is that?
And it is seriously cute, too.
My mom and grandma have a vinyl collection so we should purchase a player soon!
Putting a record on a player seems to be a much different experience than turning on Spotify. Not better, or worse, but definitely different.
Those huge vinyl records look fab, too! Some of the nicest ones could be put on a shelf above the player.
Games that spice up any party at a homebody teen
Would You Rather? book
This book is full of funny “would you rather” questions and is a perfect game to play with family and friends. Great conversion starter, too! Just be sure to play it with funny and relaxed people and answer the questions in detail, not just with one word, that is lame.
What Are The Odds? Card Game
Kids Against Maturity: Card Game
Not Parent Approved: A Card Game for Kids, Families and Mischief Makers
Again: this game is also not to be played with funny people who can equally laugh at themselves and others without being offending.
Good luck finding at least 3! 😂
I only have my mom who is chill, funny and sarcastic enough to play any of these games.
Maybe your homebody is luckier. There are at least two of you: you and your homebody you are trying to find a great present, right? Be that friend who adds laugh and fun to the life of a homebody and you will have a friend for life.
Being a homebody is not a negative thing, and homebodies are not antisocial, depressed or unhappy.
Especially after getting some of the above-mentioned homebody-approved gifts! 😉
