Housewarming is a grand ceremony. Your host shows you around the house, tells you what their plans are for each room and then, there’s a puja, which is immediately followed by breakfast or lunch, depending on the time of the ceremony. The only drawback for me is that I often have no idea on what to gift them. There was a period during which I used to gift only coffee mugs for housewarming. I bought plain white coffee mugs and had the hosts’ names printed on them. It was a cheap idea and the novelty soon wore off.
Nowadays, whenever I’m invited to a housewarming, I think really hard about the person and try to figure out if there’s something they don’t have. Problem is, everyone is thinking the same. So, I end up calling my sister, who is a genius with these things and she helps me out with them.
To make sure that you don’t run into trouble again, I’ve sat down with several people to pick out some of the best items on Amazon India that you can gift at the next housewarming ceremony.
