The Best Gifts for Homemakers
I LOVE staying at home with my children and taking care of my family and our home. Homemaking makes me very happy and often times I find myself asking my husband for gifts that relate to homemaking (new stand mixer, vacuum cleaner, etc.). Yes, some women might not like to receive gifts like this, but I LOVE them! So I’ve teamed up with Miranda and Mariah this year to bring you our list of the best gifts for homemakers.
What a cheese board! One of BigWood Board's most popular items is this stunning scalloped walnut board with twisted black handles. It's the perfect size to act as a cheese board or a serving tray. You'll love how it comes with personalization, a juice groove, and rubber feet on the bottom for added stability.
The walnut is 100% sourced from forests in Virginia and New York, making the quality excellent and tray sturdy. Truly, this is a unique tray that will become a stunning centerpiece in any home.
Give it alone or fill it with delicious snacks to present to the Happy Homemaker in your life!

Janessa here and, as a homemaker myself, I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE this Bissell SpinWave Wet and Dry Robot Vacuum! I work hard to keep our home clean but the fact is that with 6 children, I can always use some help!
BISSELL SpinWave Hard Floor Expert wet and dry robotic vacuum gives you two ways to clean in one revolutionary robot. Its two-tank system powerfully vacuums or actively mops.
When used in dry vacuuming mode it collects pet hair, dirt and other debris across multiple surfaces and when used in wet mopping mode, the mop pads and BISSELL cleaning solution scrub messes on sealed hard floors for you. And, thanks to the Soft Surface Avoidance Sensor, you don't have to worry about it cleaning surfaces like rugs when in wet mopping mode.
I have been using this vacuum in our home for a few weeks now and I can't imagine living without it. I love that I can turn it on and have it clean while I'm busy grocery shopping, giving kids baths, fixing dinner, or any of the other things I need to do during my week.
As an added bonus, you can download an app to your smartphone and control it from anywhere!

With The Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbook, you can explore every delicious nook and cranny the parks have to offer, all without leaving the comfort of your own home.

Bring color to your home with Joyspotting (1000 Pieces). The art was designed by Rachelle Kearns. The painting ‘joyspotting’, with its bright colors and saturated tones, can’t help but make you smile! It was painted with the idea that we can all ‘spot the joy’ in our everyday, seemingly ordinary lives.
More than your typical puzzle, these pieces are unique shapes, which make puzzling more fun than your standard pieces. Lemonade Pursuits pride themselves on the high quality, soft-touch finish of our pieces, which is also anti-glare so no more ducking and dodging around lamp light.

Everyone deserves a comfortable place to sit and relax after a busy day of cooking, cleaning, running errands, and chasing after the kids. So get the special homemaker in your life this gorgeous Storkcraft Tuscany Glider and Ottoman Set this year!
You'll be able to depend on the sturdy wood construction for years as you relax into the soft polyester cushions (they’re wipeable!). Plus, the metal ball bearings make for a smooth rocking motion and the matching pillow adds lumbar support.
Store baby books, magazines, and other essentials within arm’s reach in the convenient pocket tucked into the side cushion. Get ready to settle in, you’ve earned it.
The Virgo Slim + Soft Pillow is Miranda's FAVORITE pillow! She actually lost her original and had to quickly replace because it's so amazing. The Virgo provides a thin layer of cushiony softness without compromising neck alignment, particularly great if you're a stomach sleeper.
While great for stomach sleepers, quite a few back sleepers also love it too. It's a thinner, low-profile pillow that is pliable enough to fold. Although the Virgo has less fill, the loft-quality of its down means it continues to lift the head.
This is a very light and super-soft pillow that's great for cuddling. However, if you prefer a pillow with some substance and heft, this is likely not the pillow for you -- but don't worry as SLUMBR has some other great options too so check out their Vela or Orion.

Homemakers have more than a few things they need to juggle throughout the day. Daily life for a homemaker may look like juggling kids, a spouse, errands, laundry, cleaning the house, making meals, the list goes on and on.
I know that striving to eat healthy meals is always a goal, but that I often struggle to get all the vitamins and nutrients I need for a balanced and healthy diet each day.
That is why I am so excited to try Zahler's Real Multi-Calm Vitamin. This multivitamin formula contains 5 servings of fruits and vegetables! Take some of the pressure off of the homemaker in your life with Zahler vitamins.
