Admit it - you'd rather avoid other people and spend the day alone. We totally get it - that's why we created Introverts Retreat. So order a box, ignore your phone calls, cancel your plans, and imagine soaking in a warm candle-lit bath with a great book. Does it get any better than that? No. No, it absolutely does not.

  • Introverts Retreat subscriptions start right away and we'll ship your first box in about a week. Need it sooner? Contact us and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
  • Perfect subscription for introverts who love bath products, candles, and books - no cheap fillers or useless products. Our products and treats are all handmade and fabulous!
  • Candles, bath salts, and scented soap all have an introverted theme with names like "My Favorite Hobby Is Avoiding People" and "Love Me Enough To Leave Me Alone."
  • Books are new/like new, unread condition and we're proud to offer our Best Book Promise - if you don't like any book you receive, just let us know and we'll let you choose another.
  • The perfect gift for any introvert.

Customer Questions (4)


Q: Is the mystery/thriller books appropriate for preteens?Asked by Scooby D., November 2021

Introverts Retreat answered...November 2021

No. Our mystery/thriller selections are definitely written for adults. In fact, all of our books are more appropriate for adults.


Q: Hi....I see that you have four versions of your box available on Cratejoy. If I order more than one, will I get different books and different products or are there repeats across the boxes? Thank you.Asked by Cheryl B., October 2021

Introverts Retreat answered...October 2021

If they're all on or about the same renewal day and have the same beverage/genre choices they might be the same. If you want them to be different (or be the same if they're for different people and you're doing a fun DIY bookclub) just let us know and we'll tag the orders. :)


Q: Are your book selections inclusive, including stories surrounding people of color and members of the LBBTQ+ community?Asked by Mary U., March 2021

Introverts Retreat answered...March 2021

We send out different books in each genre every month and the subject matter and authors change throughout the month. We also offer the opportunity to choose a specific book from our website and in our current collection we have a number of books written by women of color and various cultures and whenever we can find them, we include LGBTQ+ books as well (we have one right now and we’re looking for more).


Q: Would you consider adding a horror book option? Or would that be included under mystery/thriller?? Asked by Erin H., March 2021

Introverts Retreat answered...March 2021

Under mystery/thriller

Got my first Introvert Retreat box and I love it! I really loved that there were a ton of books to choose from and I'm excited to read the one I picked. It sounded right up my alley! I signed up for 3 months and I'm excited to see next months too! Would definitely recommend to a friend :)

Wonderful box! This is my first shipment, and includes a book (you pick the genre), scented candle, soap and bath salts, and a bookmark. I’m so excited to read my new book— I’m counting down the hours until I can log off from work.

A lovely box for readers

What a great box! I'm so pleased! I like the option to be able to pick the book that you would like sent or have it curated for you. The snacks were awesome!

A little self care in a box.

Only got one box out of six so far but I really enjoyed the first box that I got. I got some tasty snacks, a great tea and a cute book. What was usually a thirty minute soak in the tub turned into two and a half hours because I had a slew of happy things.

Love the read and relax

I ordered this box on December 14th and didn't receive it till January 6th even though it says 6-8 day shipping. Very unimpressed with the shipping and customer service. Contacted the seller three times during this period and they never got back to me so I had to contact crate joy themselves and they even had a hard time getting the seller to respond. Filled out the selection preference and asked for a romance novel but ended up with a young adult dystopian novel that just happened to have a love story in it but was not a romance novel. The rest of the products were okay but overall very frustrating and difficult process that was not worth the time, money, hassle or anything else in the end.

Hi Josie,
We responded to your concerns about shipping - as you may remember, the COVID pandemic brought shipping to a crawl during the incredibly busy holiday season. Many packages were delayed throughout the country. It was frustrating for all of us and required a lot of patience.
As for your book, we know it can be difficult to please everyone so we have a Best Book promise! We are happy to replace any book a subscriber doesn’t like. All you have to do is email us directly for instructions.

The company has great customer service.

I signed up for a three month trial, but ended it after two months.
The books were okay.
I did not care for the add-ins.
Gifts like this are so personal, from the book genres to the particular fragrances.
It didn't work out for me.
