With less than a week until Christmas Eve, many of us are scouring our brains for gift ideas. Shopping for the housewife in your life can be difficult.
Here are my 5 gift ideas:

Johnny Depp Movie Collection

I don’t think there’s a housewife on the planet that wouldn’t be tickled to receive another Johnny Depp film. If she doesn’t have one already it would be great to start one this year. My personal favorites are Edward Scissorhands, Cry Baby, Chocolat, Ed Wood, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Don Juan De Marco, Arizona Dream, The Libertine, Pirates of the Caribbean 1, 2 & 3, Sweeney Todd… oh just pick two or three with Johnny Depp in the credits! You can’t go wrong!

A Photo Shoot

Not every housewife dresses like June Cleaver or feels like Pam Anderson while she’s working. Many of us wear unfashionable attire to get some of the toughest jobs around the house done. Some days I don’t “put my face on” until mid afternoon.

Give the housewife in your life a gift of glam with a professional photo shoot that’s not at Olan Mills. Visit these two amazing photographers to find out more about booking a shoot:



A Massage

No one needs a relaxing massage more than a housewife. With her 24/7 workload giving her a gift of relaxation even for one hour will surely be appreciated. Visit  iwantamassage.com for more info.

A Kitchen of the Future

The ultimate present would be a kitchen makeover, with all new appliances, upgraded cabinets and granite countertops.

Look at how happy these housewives are daydreaming about their new kitchen of the future:

A Housekeeper

Of course we never want to be out of a job, but having a housekeeper show up for a day would be a pleasant surprise. If a day seems like too much, how about someone that cleans windows? Windows and mopping those are tasks that call for whistling while you work. Visit Mollymaids.com for a gift certificate.
