Holiday Gift Guide: 10 Items Every Homemaker Needs

Owning your home definitely makes you start to think about the holidays differently. Suddenly Dave and I found ourselves asking for things like pressure cookers and microwaves for Christmas instead of a cool handbag or pair of sneakers. You start finding value in things like bread-makers and juicers, over a new item to add to the closet. 

This Christmas, we created a little Homemaker Gift Guide that will have any home-owner swooning over their gifts (*hint hint* friends and families – Dave and I are new home owners, after all). Seeing gifts I give to people in action or just knowing that my recipient will actually make use of it is the best feeling of all. 

All of these products were found on a budget from my friends at Home Hardware. And beyond being right around the corner from our new house, and having saved our butts several times with renovation materials, we love that Home Hardware is Canada’s largest home improvement retailer. Not only that, but they remain a genuinely Canadian retailer. I remember going to Home Hardware with my dad as a kid, so I’ll always associate my home development process with HH close in mind. 

If you or someone in your life is building their new home, or perhaps they just share in the passion of making their home more beautiful (who doesn’t), these products are definitely sure to win over their hearts this holiday:
