If you look up the definition of introversion it’ll say, or most likely because this is exactly what I just found, “The quality of being shy and reticent.” I have issues with this definition. First off, introversion is a spectrum. There’s many different qualities introverts have and do not have. Some may be shy, yes. Many, however, like myself, are not shy but just prefer small crowds, meaningful conversation over small talk, and a lot of alone time to refresh and reboot from long days. I have found over the years that my introversion has grown too. I used to be much more willing to get out and go do things then I am now.
There’s a very good likelihood that you have introverted people around you, and at some point in time you will be in need of a good gift idea for this person. Introverts can be hard to shop for, especially if you are not introverted. So here are a few of my favorite ideas. *affiliate links*

I admit I was very resistant to e-readers when they first made their appearance. I do still love a paper book, turning the pages, seeing how far I am by the thickness of the pages read versus what I have to go. I do admit it though, e-readers are so wonderfully convenient especially for me, like many introverts, who carry a book where ever they go. You never know when conversation might be dull or you just need to retreat and read. Find One Here.
