Giving Great Gifts

When you buy gifts for the special people in your life the goal is usually to try and get them something that is on the top of their list.

As a homemaker, whether it is your part-time or full-time job, getting a gift that you can use on a regular basis is very much appreciated.

If the gift makes life a little easier then it’s even better.

Often times when I put together a gift list like this I think of the things that are on my own wish list, or the items I have received and been so grateful for.

So here’s a first hand list of some great gifts that the homemaker in your life will love and appreciate the most.

10 Great Gifts for the Homemaker

Kitchenaid Mixer or Attachment

Great Gifts: Kitchenaid Mixer
Pasta cutter set for KitchenAid mixer

If your homemaker doesn’t have a KitchenAid mixer in the kitchen yet, no doubt it is on their list of things they want. It’s a great helper when it comes to cooking and baking with so many uses.

One of the best things are the attachments that you can purchase to expand its culinary abilities like this pasta roller and cutter set that is completely compatible with your KitchenAid mixer.

iRobot Roomba

Great Gifts" iRobot Roomba

This little guy has been on my wish list for years. I feel like I spend a much larger portion of life cleaning my floors than I should and an iRobot Roomba vacuum could help me out with that.

Cuisinart Combo Coffee Maker

Great gifts: Cuisinart Combo Coffee Maker

I don’t know about you, but our house runs on coffee. We have both a regular coffee pot and small Keurig, but I dislike having to have two separate appliances sitting on my kitchen counter. Which is why I love this one-stop-shop coffee maker from Cuisinart. It’s perfect whether you want to make a whole pot in the morning or just a cup in the afternoon.

Specialty Serving Trays

Serving Dishes

If your homemaker enjoys cooking for your family or has a love of entertaining, then having some special serving dishes are something they will enjoy using again and again. Here are a few ideas:

Memorable Cutting Board

Cutting Board with Recipe

I have always loved the idea of giving this item as a gift. This Etsy company takes a hand written recipe and transfers it onto a cutting board. So whether your homemaker has a recipe that has been handed down or one they are known for making you can have it put where they will see it all the time while cooking. It’s so special!

A Front Porch HOME Sign

Great Gift: HOME sign

My friend from The Plaid Pine Company creates the most beautiful HOME sign that makes the best focal point as guests visit your door step. The best part is the “o” in “home” is interchangeable with seasonal or holiday related elements. You can order extra changables for christmas, birthdays, and your favorite sports season.

Echo Smart Speaker (Alexa)

Great Gifts: Echo

“Alexa, do the dishes.” I wish it were really that easy but there are plenty of things that your homemaker can ask Alexa on the Echo to do. Some examples could be, “Alexa, play me some 90s country hits while I clean.” Or maybe, “Alexa, can you spell photosynthesis for my 3rd grader?” Or even, “Alexa, how many ounces are in a cup?”

The possibilities are endless 😉


This is one of the great gifts on this list that gives the homemaker a little “me time”. They can easily download books on their Kindle to read without the clutter all over their bookshelves.

Take it even further and give the gift of kindle unlimited, where they can choose from hundreds of great books to reads for one low monthly cost.



This one is for the homemaker who is also a crafter. I have made so many creations for myself, my home, and as gifts with my Cricut. It is definitely a best loved item for creative individuals.


Letter Board

This is a cute little gift idea that adds a little personality to the home. I have to admit that I am not always so timely with changing the message on my letter board but I like that I can do it. It’s the perfect way to add a little festivity to holidays and birthdays and a fun place to post quotes, dinner menus, and any other message you want to share.
