The holidays are just around the corner and that means it’s time to figure out what we’re going to get everyone for Christmas.
Unless you don’t celebrate Christmas, then maybe you can take advantage of the holiday sales for yourself.
Introverts can be especially tricky to shop for since we usually don’t talk about what we want very much. That’s why I decided to list 10 gifts that introverts would love to make shopping for the introvert in your life easier this year.
There’s something for all budgets, so don’t worry about having to spend too much.
Quiet is the NYT bestseller by Susan Cain that helps introverts and extroverts alike better understand what’s going on inside the head of an introvert. It’s probably the best book on introversion written so far and has 4.5 stars on Amazon with over 4,800 reviews.
2. Red Monkey
A lot of introverts struggle with social anxiety to the point that going out and being around people puts them in a bad mood. For many who suffer from social anxiety, Red Monkey is a great solution. It’s a combination of nootropics and the powerful anti-anxiety compound phenibut.
Not only do headphones let others around you know that you’re not interested in talking, noise-cancelling headphones ensure that you only hear what you want to hear and nothing else — an introvert’s ideal situation. The Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Headphones are the best bang for your buck if sound quality is your top concern. If the introvert in your life wants to have the hottest headphones on the street and price isn’t a concern, the Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones are a great choice.
This is the perfect travel pillow for blocking out light and sound while allowing you to lean your head against anything. Studio Banana Things offers several other pillows with unique designs that make napping anywhere easier.
Introverts are all about Netflix and chill. This year, give the gift that keeps on giving.
Think of this as the book version of Netflix — Kindle Unlimited offers unlimited reading and listening of over 1 million books, magazines, and audiobooks on any device.
Introverts are more sensitive to their environment, which naturally makes them more picky about their environment. An essential oil diffuser allows you to influence the vibe of the room with therapeutic scents. To be honest, I used to think all this essential oil stuff was bullshit until my girlfriend started infusing our home and using oils for different home remedies (that work).
Deprivation tanks, also known as “float tanks,” are small pods filled with salt water that allow you to float without any effort while you relax. In a float tank, you are completely deprived of all outside light and sound — an introvert’s dream come true. Float sessions are great for meditation or simply recharging the introverted batteries. To find one in your area, Google “float tank + your city.”
Introverts often value experiences over “things.” Seat Geek is a service that helps you buy verified tickets to concerts, plays, and sporting events from other people — usually at a lower price than face value. One of their best features is being able to see exactly where your seat is in the venue, including what the view from that seat will look like.
10. Oculus Rift
Introverts have always lived in their own version of reality in their mind. Now everyone can experience a more vivid version of the introvert’s inner sanctum. This is probably going to be above most Christmas budgets, but I can’t imagine anyone would be disappointed to unwrap one of these bad boys this year.
