Best of NJ Gift Guide: Holiday Gifts for Homebodies

Do you know someone who prefers takeout over dining out? A person who would prefer to  watch movies at home instead of at the theater? Perhaps they drink most of their coffee in the kitchen, instead of at the local shop? If these questions describe someone you know, they’re a homebody through and through. Now, we don’t think there’s anything wrong with that; but homebodies can potentially be tough to shop for.

Unsurprisingly, these presents will ensure they don’t want to get off the couch anytime soon! And hey, if you happen to cozy up to a few of these ideas yourself… Like we said, there’s nothing wrong with staying in for a change.
