Abstract The prevalence of gift-giving in Australian home makeover programs, and the way that it functions in their narrative, driving the makeover and grounding it in a meaningful social and national context is discussed. Australian Nine Network's Backyard Blitz is taken as a case study to explore its narrative and symbolic function of gift-giving and the mythologizing of benevolence as a desirable nation trait.
