18 Gifts For Introverts, From Magazine Subscriptions To Noise-Canceling Headphones

It's the season of giving, and we already have a list of friends and family to buy gifts for. But as you work your way down your list of loved ones, you inevitably come to the one person who is always the hardest to shop for. You know, the one who'd rather cozy up at home instead of go out at night. Finding the perfect gifts for introverts can be tough, but not to worry — we've got a few suggestions to make shopping easier.

Of course, all introverts are different so there's no one-size-fits-all perfect gift. But since introverts tend to enjoy spending time alone, here are 18 gifts (all under $100) to make an introvert's "me" time a little more special.

A Magazine Subscription

You can pretty much find a magazine that will suit anyone’s style. And unlike some people who flip through the pages at the checkout line, introverts will actually take the time to read an article. So why not buy them a year-long subscription? They’ll definitely enjoy it more than you think.

Movie Tickets

Movies are always a good idea, and buying your movie tickets in advance ensures that the gift recipient will get to see the movie they want when they want.

Their Favorite Album

Everyone loves music — on the go and at home. So get the latest album from their favorite artist, and you can be sure your favorite introvert will have it playing on repeat.

Wearing headphones is the perfect way to block out the rest of the world, or at the very least get some peace and quiet. It’s the perfect gift for introverts, and if they already have a pair, they probably need some new ones anyway.

If your favorite introvert is someone who enjoys drawing on their down time, then they’ll love getting a new sketchbook for the holidays.

Ostrich Pillow

An Ostrich Pillow might look a little strange, but it’s a brilliant invention. Pick up a basic head wrap pillow to give someone the best nap they’ve ever had on the go.

Find out what their favorite movie of the year is, and snag them a copy. Chances are they’ll watch it way more than once.

Moleskine Journal

Many introverts like to write, and as any writer can tell you, the best notebook is a Moleskine journal.

For the introvert who loves to read, what better present to receive than an e-reader? It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

This doesn’t mean an Amazon gift card. Take time to actually pick out a book you think the person will like. They’ll appreciate the thought behind it, and probably finish the book in a week.

Magic Bullet

The Magic Bullet is an essential kitchen appliance when cooking for one. Blend a smoothie, make guacamole, and save storage space.
