Gift Ideas For Homeowners

Published on: August 25th, 2021

For homeowners, there is always something to be bought or something to be done around the house. It could be starting the next renovation project, scheduling in a deep clean, or freshening up the interior decorating. Here are some great gift ideas for a housewarming present, or for longtime homeowners who already “have it all”.

1. Personalised Homeware

Personalised gifts always feel special, and are particularly great for a housewarming. Personalised homeware can be engraved with the recipient’s name, or a special occasion such as the date they bought the house. There are several New Zealand websites that make these types of gifts, from welcome mats to chopping boards. This thoughtful gift adds a personal touch and can really help make the house feel like a home.

2. A House Wash

A professional exterior clean transforms a home, making it look like new, while also maintaining exterior surfaces in the long term. This means it is likely to be on any homeowner’s wish list, even if they seem to have everything. Why not gift your friend a house wash, deck clean, or anything else their property might need? A low pressure wash will clean effectively and safely, with no risk of damage. It’ll also tick some big jobs off their to-do list and let them enjoy their weekends! Get in touch with Chemwash Waikato to find out more.

3. Gift Card to their Favourite Home-Related Store

Although a gift card is not as personal, sometimes a practical gift is the most appreciated. Some ideas for home-related stores include Farmers, Briscoes, Bunnings, Mitre 10 Mega, Harvey Norman, Kmart, Bed, Bath & Beyond or any other store you know they like.

4. Decor to Create a Cosy Atmosphere

Cosy interior decor can make a house feel like a home. Examples include artwork, blankets in their favourite colour, candles, throw pillows or plants. These budget-friendly gifts are great regardless of how long the homeowners have been settled in.

5. A ‘Starter Pack’

This idea can be adapted to any home-related interest. For a housewarming gift, you might like to create a homeowner’s starter pack with all the essentials. For longtime homeowners, you could curate a starter pack to a new interest or hobby of theirs. If the person you are buying a gift for wants to finally start that vegetable patch, you could create a gardening starter pack with tools, seeds, and anything else.

What our clients are saying



I got Chemwash to do a complete exterior wall and roof wash down of my house to give it a new lease of life. The service was amazing! A visit was arranged, a competitive quote was provided, and the job was completed all within very quick time. The contact that I had with the team was all very professional and courteous. The team who did the work were amazing, they went the extra mile with moving the kid’s toys, working around the dog and cleaning things that I hadn’t expected to be included. And the end result is amazing! My house now looks new – sparkling clean and it even smells clean! I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Chemwash, and I know I will be using them again in the future.
