Hey Ladies. Today, I wrote a post to your husbands. I thought they might appreciate some sly gifting suggestions. You can thank me later. Feel free to read this and put brightly colored stars on your computer screen to mark which of these you really want your husbands to take note of.
I’m Laura. Nice to meet you. I spend quite a bit of time with your wife each day. We have fun together. Perhaps she’s mentioned me? You’ve likely eaten a thing or two that I’ve shared here. It was probably that one recipe that you said, “Mmm, this is good” and she said, “I got the recipe from that one heavenly homemaker lady who has four sons and loves butter and hates cleaning. She can’t talk and cook at the same time, but her recipes are good.”
Today I wanted to offer you all a little bit of help. Christmas shopping for your wife can be a bit overwhelming. I get it. Once my husband asked for a dremel for Christmas and I started to cry. (Not really. Maybe.)
Not only can I give you some pretty good ideas about what your wife might love for Christmas, I can even tell you where to get them. I’ve already done the price comparison. Not that she’s not worth a billion dollars, right? But she’ll love the gift more if you don’t knock out the food and toilet paper budget for the month when you buy her gift(s).
Now keep in mind, you know your wife best. If she’s not into practical gifts, by all means ignore me and go buy her something from a jewelry store. But if opening an appliance or a box of casserole dishes says, “My husband loves me so much!” then this is what you’re going to want to look into:
Pyrex dishes are more romantic than you think. I probably have over 30 pieces of Pyrex in my kitchen and they are more beautiful to me than diamonds. Important: If it doesn’t have a lid, it’s not worth having! Get your wife Pyrex dishes with lids because she can do so much more with them!!!! (Do I sound bossy? I’m really not bossy. I just feel strongly about my Pyrex lids.)
My favorite and most useful sets of Pyrex with lids:
Pyrex Smart Essentials 8-Piece Mixing Bowl Set
Pyrex Simply Store 10-Piece Glass Food Storage Set
Pyrex Easy Grab 4-Piece Value Pack, includes 1-ea 3-qt Oblong, 2-qtOblong, Red Plastic Covers
Pyrex Easy Grab 8-Piece Glass Bakeware and Food Storage Set
6 Piece Bakeware/Cookware Set with Red Plastic Covers
Cast Iron is very healthy to cook on and turns out delicious food – in particular pancakes, grilled cheese, and scrambled eggs with bacon. Get cast iron for your wife and you will reap the rewards, I promise.

Cast Iron 3-Piece Skillet Set
It’s so shiny! (This is the practical gift version of a gold necklace.) If your wife wants to ditch her teflon (I recommend it!) this stainless steel pots and pans set is a wonderful replacement.
Cook N Home 12-Piece Stainless Steel Set
For a lower budget, or for a little add-on item to hide in your wife’s stocking – I have two fun little silicone items I love and use all the time. These will make your wife’s baking efforts easier. You want to make her baking efforts easier.
Silicone Baking Cups-24 Piece- Food Grade Silicone Baking Cups, Star and Round Shape-comes in Six Assorted Colors
Artisan Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat – 2 Pack
I’ll follow the least expensive items with the two most expensive items. A Nutrimill has the potential to change your life (and save you money in the long run). Your wife can grind flour in it, making the most delicious breads and waffles you’ve ever eaten. As an added bonus, this makes your baked goods healthier. You won’t know about that though because you’ll be too busy enjoying your homemade bread with butter.
This is the priciest of all, yet perhaps the most useful. I use my Blendtec several times every day. It has saved me so much time! You’ll never need to buy another blender again.

As for the wrapping, you’re on your own. I’ve done all I can do here.
Order quickly, Men. Time is running out. May you have a wonderful Christmas morning in which your wife opens her gift(s) from you, then throws her arms around you and says, “Now I can make you the best pancakes ever!!!” Trust me when I say that these gifts offer a win-win situation for both you and your wife. You might want to also order a jug of Maple Syrup for the pancakes she’s going to make you. Just saying.
That Heavenly Homemaker Lady
