Thoughtful Christmas gifts for DIY enthusiasts

What do you buy someone who likes to make everything themselves? The garage is the perfect place to get those creative juices flowing these holidays, so if you have a DIY enthusiast on your Christmas list, why not buy them all the tools and supplies they need to get creative?

Here are a few unique gift ideas for the person in your life who loves to DIY.

For the beer lover

With the right equipment and some patience, you can create authentic homebrewed beer in your garage, and it’s much easier than you think! Your DIY family member will love enjoying the fruits of their labour and can choose their own flavours and type of beer to suit their taste.

Check out HomeBrew Shop for a range of options.

For the chef
If you have a keen foodie or chef on your Christmas list, they can become an artisanal cheesemaker with an easy cheese kit! With classic favourites like Mascarpone, Ricotta, Ricotta Salata, Mozzarella, Bocconcini and Buratta, your budding chef will be whipping up their own cheeses in no time.

Check out Mad Millie’s Italian Cheese Kit. They also have vegan options!

For the soap lover

For those who love to smell gorgeous coloured soaps at farmers markets, give them the chance to make their own with this easy and creative DIY soap kit! They can set up their own DIY soap station in the garage and customise the colour, scent and essential oils, for the perfect unique gift.

NZ Soap and Candle has some great customisable options, check them out here.

For the gardener

If you have a family member who loves their garden, then a raised garden bed could be a great gift! They can grow their own herbs and veggies and have fresh produce all year round. With a raised garden bed, you don’t need a lot of space to grow your own produce, perfect for apartments and units.

Mitre10 has a great selection of raised garden beds and gardening tools.

For the handyman

Do you have a family member who struggles with a unreliable or clunky garage door opener, or is still opening their garage door manually? The Chamberlain HandyLift Deluxe 2.0 or the Chamberlain PowerLift garage door openers will transform your manual roller or sectional garage door to an automatic door in just a couple of hours. All you’ll need to install your garage door opener is a ladder, spanner, rope, socket wrench, Philips Head screwdriver, tape measure, marker, rope and a power drill.

The Chamberlain HandyLift Deluxe 2.0 and PowerLift garage door openers are both myQ compatible, which means you can monitor and control your Chamberlain Garage Door Opener away from home through the myQ App on your smartphone, tablet or Apple Watch!

The Chamberlain HandyLift Deluxe 2.0 garage door opener is available at Mitre 10 and the Chamberlain PowerLift garage door opener is available at Bunnings. Chamberlain has a huge range of garage door openers and accessories for everyone on your Christmas list! Check them out here or call 0800 653 667.
