The holidays can be a tough time for introverts. Suddenly there are tons of social events to attend, from the office holiday party to dinner with relatives you only see once a year. Although we care about the people in our lives, socializing can leave us introverts feeling tired and burned out. Can we just get a little time to ourselves, please?

If you have an introvert on your holiday shopping list (or if you’re an introvert yourself), here are 9 gift ideas for introverts who just want to be left alone this holiday season:

1. This Please Go Away I’m Introverting mug, because sometimes you just need some solitude and chai tea.

    Nice and funny ideas! Don’t forget an extra pair of earplugs or a giant stop sighn – some people celebrate the holidays pretty loud and messy… 🙂
    I wish some people could take a hint. I read about 50 books a year and people tell me “i don’t know what i could give you”.
    *sigh* oh, well…
