I am a homemaker at heart.
I remember that on day 4 of our honeymoon I woke up and wanted to go home. Why? Because there was a darling little rented duplex just waiting on my hands to turn it into a home.
I was homesick for a home I hadn’t yet made.
Even though I spent the first 7 years of our married life working full-time plus, via 2 and 3 different jobs at the same time, I still longed for home.
I consider myself to be “living the dream” now that I’m home full-time.
Admittedly there are days when I want to run away from adulting, but that happened before I became a stay at home mom so no surprise there. 🙂
Below I’ve put together a Homemaker’s Dream Gift List. These are ideas you can give family members for yourself, or ideas for you use when buying for others.
Homemaker’s Dream Gift List
I hope this guide will help you with your gift-making decisions this year, and if it does, would you please share it with others? Thanks!
Aprons! I love my aprons, and Amazon has so many fun, flirty and vintage style aprons to choose from.
Tupperware Food Processor. I received mine as a shower gift and still use it all the time! I can make a batch of fresh salsa with it in less than a minute or two. I also use it for mixing fruit into yogurt and making puddings, as well as other things. Here’s the one I have.
Silicone Basting Brushes. I recently ordered this set and I’m in love! No more losing bristles from the brush on your food. Best of all, they work even better in my opinion. Found here.
Norwex is the perfect gift for homemakers! Chemical free homes are important and Norwex makes that happen!
Little Dipper Crockpot. Seriously, this thing is perfect for dips and sauces and such a fun gift idea too!
Professional Pizza Cutter. My mom makes amazing pizza and I gave her this pizza cutter for her birthday. She was thrilled!
Amazon Prime Membership. Amazon Prime is the best thing since sliced bread! As a busy mom, I don’t always have time to run out and go shopping for different things as I need them. Many times I’m able to find a great deal on Amazon and in 2 days I have the item, no shipping cost makes it great!
Of course, Prime offers more than free two-day shipping. Like access to over a million ad-free songs, free photo storage, thousands of streaming movies and shows and free kindle books each month. Gift instructions here.
Robotic Vacuum. A sweeper is a bit of a bummer present as it just represents more work. Give a vacuum that does the work for you if you really want to impress. 🙂 We love our Bob!
Essential Oil Diffuser. Like most homemakers, I like my house to smell great. But candles are a big no-no for me as the synthetic scents really mess me up. Essential oils do not and I have diffusers all through the house. I love this large diffuser that runs in the main area.
Baking Mats. I love my silicone baking mats, they make cleanup a breeze and foods never stick to them. Double win in my opinion!
Lilla Rose Hair Clips. Homemakers are busy and we just cannot spend great amounts of time on our hair. Lilla Rose makes it easy to create a classy style in just a few minutes. Shop Lilla Rose here.
Photo Gifts from Shutterfly. I love Shutterfly. I’ve used them for printing photos, creating books and all sorts of neat personalized gift options. They’ve added a few new products that are just cool too!

Homemaker’s Friend Daily Planner. Years ago when Sue first asked me to review her planner I said no. I didn’t like planners and didn’t figure I would like hers.
She responded saying she would like to send me one anyway as she thought I would like it. I agreed to her sending me one, but made no promises. After a week of using her planner, I was hooked. I still use the Homemaker’s Friend planner and now my mom does too!
