It is a moment of pride and happiness and a culmination of a huge endeavor not only in monetary terms but sheer physical effort and emotional investment. A beautiful gift to mark this moment would reflect your thoughtfulness and joy in their celebration. Here are some housewarming gift ideas everyone will love.

Kitchen ware: The kitchen is the heart of a house. A new crockery set, spice rack, non-stick set, cook and serve ware etc would be a nice addition in the new home. A gift card from Prestige Smart Kitchen, Amazon or Flipkart would be a good idea as the host can select the exact item that would serve the functional and aesthetic requirements of her kitchen.

Bed linen: A new home could do with a dash of colour. Fresh new bed linen would brighten up any bedroom. A gift card from Shopper’s Stop or Lifestyle would be perfect for gifting this as they offer a wide range of design and colour options for bed linen.

Art: Wall hangings, vases, sculptures and other decorative items in silver, wood, ceramic etc convert a house into a home. A gift card from Pantaloons, Westside or Central would give them the choice of buying beautiful things that add a touch of class to the new home.

Home furnishings: Have your friends been considering cushions, curtains or other furnishings for their new home? Then a gift card from @Home or Home Stop would be ideal, where there can choose the colour and fabric of their liking.

Appliances: Small home appliances always make great gifts. Be it a cool toaster, an espresso machine or sandwich maker, gift your friends a gift card from Croma or E-zone to give them the freedom and flexibility to choose the appliances of their choice.

Want to give them even more choices? Gift them a Woohoo gift card, which they could use to pick a gift card from the brands of their own choice from Woohoo.in.
