2021 Gift Guide for the Homebody

There are few things better than surprising someone you love with the perfect gift. Whether it’s your parents, your partner, your kids, or a dear friend, watching their faces light up in excitement is the best feeling, and we’re ready to embrace that spirit of generosity now more than ever.

In today’s installment of our 2021 holiday gift guides, we’re focused on fun ideas for the ones who love to stay at home. The introverts, if you will. With a mix of beautiful coffee table books, cozy slippers, functional housewares, and more, there’s something nearly everyone in your life. We even snuck in a few interactive ideas like our favorite chess set to keep everyone busy in the winter months ahead—because those are the gifts that keep on giving.

We know holiday shopping can be notoriously stressful, so we’ve linked each gift below all in one easy place. Keep in mind that the current supply chain crisis will likely lead to longer than usual shipping times, so we’d encourage you to shop early, or better yet, consider shopping local. For all of you here in the Twin Cities, our Local’s Guide to Minneapolis can help point you in the direction of some incredible small businesses tucked inside our neighborhoods. While the convenience of online shopping is hard to beat, let’s not forget to also show lots of love to the business owners in our community. Happy gifting!
