If you struggle picking out Christmas gifts for friends and family that are homemakers, here is a Christmas gift guide to help you simplify the process. Sometimes Christmas shopping can be overwhelming when you are trying to find the perfect gift for everyone. If you get easily overwhelmed by all this, stop and ask these questions.
- Do they love being in the kitchen?
- Are they crafty?
- Is there something they want to learn?
- What are they saving up for?
Better yet, ask the intended receiver these questions and see what they say. They may have something already in mind so you can also ask if they have a wish list.
Maybe you don’t know what to ask for yourself… Either way, I hope this Christmas gift guide helps you find the perfect gift!
Do they love being in the kitchen?
Here are some old fashioned things they might appreciate.
- Cast Iron Cookware
- Wooden Utensils
- Porcelain or Stone Crocks
- Butter Crock
- Salt Dish
- Sugar Bowl
- Decorative Hand Towels
- Wooden Scrub Brushes for Dishwashing
- Amish Cookbooks
- Nice Coffee
Are they crafty?
What things are they into? What are things are they currently trying to master? Is there a new hobby that they want to start?
For the crafty DIY or decor people, you could always give them a gift card to Amazon, Hobby Lobby, or some local craft shop.
Maybe the perfect gift might just be a kit of things for a skill that they want to learn.
Here are some ideas…
- Sewing Kit
- Candle Making Kit
- Card Making Kit
- Soap Making Kit
- Embroidery Kit
If they like sewing or needlework, some…
- Nice Sewing Scissors
- Linen or Cotton Thread
- Embroidery Scissors
- Crochet Needles
- Cotton Yarn
- Knitting Needles
- Money for some expensive fabric
Is there something they want to learn?
If they want to get into DIY cleaning products, castile soap is very useful and always appreciated.
Maybe they could use a book on natural living or how to make their own beauty products…Sometimes they just need inspiration so “how to” books would do the trick.
You could always offer to share your knowledge of a skill and commit to teaching them how to do something that you already know and that they want to learn.
Is there anything more old fashioned than passing along the wisdom that has been entrusted to you?
What are they saving up for?
Ask them if there is something they are saving up for and give them some cash or a gift card to go towards something more expensive. Maybe there is something that they would love to upgrade, but wouldn’t necessarily ask for as a gift….
Homemakers tend to have a never ending list of things they need especially if they have children. Rearing children can be quite expensive and I know that giving towards needs is always appreciated.
Maybe it’s just me, but you can’t go wrong with practical gifts. Young homemakers are in the season of life where they need all the help they can get so anything that you can give that is useful or that they can set aside towards something practical is always appreciated.
It is so easy to overthink gift giving or to run out of ideas. Did you get any ideas to make or give as a gift? If you did and found this Christmas guide inspiring or helpful in any way, please PIN IT! That way other homemakers can be inspired by it, too.
