I’ll admit it, I selfishly created this gift guide for myself. Hint, hint to my husband! This list of luxury gifts for homemakers is perfect for a homemaker, like myself, who is slowly upgrading big-ticket items like vacuum cleaners, air purifiers, irons, and even high-end organizing bins.
While at first glance some of these items might not feel gift-able, I can attest they can be thoughtful gifts for the right recipient.
Luxury Gifts for Homemakers
I have spent countless hours researching the best vacuum cleaners. During that research, I chatted with housekeepers and homemakers about their favorite vacuum cleaners, and this one topped the list. Loved for its 1,200-watt suction power, maneuverability, HEPA filter, and ease of use, this is the vacuum cleaner I am coveting. While this particular model is best for hard floors, it includes an attachment for carpets making it suitable for both types of floors.
This Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool Air Purifier, Heater & Fan can do it all! We initially purchased a Dyson during California’s fire season, and we were pleased with the air purification results. I enjoyed being able to check the air quality improvement in real time on the app. Since then, we’ve come to appreciate the versatility and we also use ours as a heater in the winter and a fan in the summer. This is a great gift for someone who lives in a polluted city or someone who weathers fire season.
I love the idea of gifting a robot vacuum to a loved one who could benefit from outsourcing their cleaning routine. Whether they have physical limitations, limited time, or are simply uninterested in vacuuming, a robot vacuum will get the job done. This robot empties itself for up to 60 days, making it the ultimate set-it-and-forget-it experience.
Do you have a fashionista friend or family member who is constantly steaming their clothes, perhaps with a small handheld garment steamer? It’s time to upgrade to this Jiffy Garment Steamer which features a quick two-minute heat-up time and a 1.5-hour steam time! Reviewers rave that it “unwrinkles clothes like a boss.” You’ll have to ensure they have enough space to comfortably store the steamer. I like the retro look of this light pink model.
Do you know someone who is still using their first entry-level iron? Consider gifting them an upgrade in the form of this Panasonic Dry/Steam Iron. It is cordless, features a non-stick nickel-coated stainless steel soleplate that glides smoothly over fabric, has powerful vertical steam perfect for drip-free treatment of hanging clothes and home decor, and includes a portable case for on-the-go needs and storage. Reviewers note they “love, love this iron” and “11 years old – still my favorite iron,” so you can be confident your gift recipient will love it for years to come!
This sleek hamper features a cork lid, a removable washable inner bag, and smart velcro closing. The corrosion-resistant materials and bottom ring make this hamper ideal for the bathroom. Made in Belgium by Brabantia, a company that has pledged to be 100% circular by 2035 and is making decisions guided by sustainability.
I admit this item is for a particular niche gift recipient who lives somewhere without a washing machine. Perhaps a vintage New York City apartment, a tiny home dweller, a camper enthusiast, or someone undergoing a home renovation like I am. When I first learned of portable washing machines I was skeptical. Would it be effective and worth the space it takes up, I wondered? After hours of research and chatting with friends who have used this Giantex Portable Washing Machine, I learned that it is effective, easy to operate, and contains a large capacity despite its relatively small footprint.
If you know someone looking to upgrade their laundry system, consider giving them this Rejuvenation Steel Canvas Laundry System. It is a classic storage solution to organize and store products, and it is made with a durable steel frame made from recycled steel and caster wheels. The Steeletex vinyl liner is easy to clean, tear- and water-resistant, and antimicrobial making it a suitable choice for laundry and long-term use.
While organizing bins may not seem like much of a splurge compared to other items on this list, I beg to differ. When I started my organizing journey, I balked at the price tags of many of the organizing bins. In fact, the cost of organizing bins somewhat delayed my start. I would have loved to have been gifted high-quality, long-lasting organizing bins. You can find a spot for these nearly anywhere (kitchen, entryway, playroom, office) so you can be confident they will be appreciated and used.
