What is the most exciting part for a new homeowner after getting their home ready? Yes, the Griha Pravesh or housewarming ceremony in which the close family and friends are also invited to bless the residents of the house.


Well, now we all know that no one goes to anyone’s house without gifts when visiting for the first time. Yes, in this blog, we are talking about housewarming presents and some unique suggestions of what can be gifted on the occasion. But when housewarming gifts come to mind, you might think of giving products such as Ganesha idols, ordinary silverware, crockery tableware, antiquities, or other regular things. 


Worry not! We have compiled some offbeat and useful housewarming gift ideas that will make you stand out from the crowd.


1. Planter

Giving a planter as a housewarming gift in India is a one-of-a-kind concept that is also environmentally friendly. If the recipient is an avid nature lover, you'll gain added points. Pick a lovely plant holder, like this Springtime Earthy Planter from Chumbak. They come in a pair of two, are long-lasting, and add a cheerful touch to your home.

2. Amazon Echo

Home assistant gadgets make excellent housewarming gifts. The Amazon Echo discreetly performs tasks ranging from playing music to controlling the temperature and making your to-do lists. Interesting, isn't it? *Alexa, add Amazon Echo to cart!*

3. Wine rack

Wine connoisseurs can be difficult to please, so instead of a plain bottle of Pinot Noir, give them an artistic storage rack that can help them place those elegant bottles in the most beautiful manner. It indeed is one of the most useful housewarming gifts for them. So, check out the Nutcase Wooden Wine Rack from Flipkart that can hold bottles and glasses and looks great in any bar.

4. Speaker

What is a home without music? If your friends/relatives agree, having an extra speaker in the house will be welcomed, especially if it looks like the boAt Aavante Bar 500. This portable soundbar comes with 10 hours of playtime, ensuring that the party never stops! Enjoy Multiple Connectivity Modes with a built-in mic. It's a fantastic online housewarming gift that can be enjoyed by everyone in the house.

5. Paintings

Beautiful paintings enliven any space in the house. Gift artworks to your host if you know they are an art connoisseur. Paintings enhance the space's colour and appearance. This is a terrific housewarming gift idea if your host respects your opinion in art and style. Paintings in the living room and entrance should portray nature, like this Inephos Cotton and Wood Night Venice Framed Painting on Amazon.

6. Digital photo frame

Don't we all enjoy reminiscing? Remember how you love it when your Facebook feed shows up with a memory notice and you scroll back to it? In India, most of the families have seniors, who have memories spanning six decades. They may not, however, be tech-savvy enough to use the appropriate channel or platform. In such circumstances, a digital photo frame can be the ideal and useful housewarming gift in India.

We recommend: Miracle Digital 17.78 cm (7 inch) Digital Photo Frame Hi-def from Amazon

Price: ₹3,530

7. Scented soap

If your host is infatuated with fragrance, a gift hamper of scented soap bars would be an amazing choice. This is one of the most thoughtful housewarming gift ideas, and you'll gain bonus points for using handcrafted and environment-friendly products. Check out our fav Nyassa Set Of 9 Soaps Gift Set by Boddess. You will never go wrong with this exquisite collection that carries a whiff of heaven and earth. The gift set includes Under the Ocean, Moroccan Rose, Shea Butter, Berry Berry, Alphonso, Manana Cubana, Green Apple, Southern Spice, and Temple Mogra handmade soap. Oh no, don’t drool as these are soaps! All good things come in small packages after all.

8. Spice box

The kitchen is one of the most important areas of a home, and spices are an essential component of every food prepared in an Indian household. You might give a traditional wooden masala box as a housewarming gift, which is a one-of-a-kind item that you won't find in the usual market. Like, we loved the Peach Floral Steel Spice Box from Chumbak. Featuring an exquisite floral design, this stainless steel spice box can store all the daily spices in style to make cooking sesh fun and delightful.

Price: ₹1,995

9. Gift basket

Many gift baskets contain subpar goods, strangely processed foods, and those disgusting strawberry-flavored candy. This one is different; it's a delicious housewarming gift basket! The greatest way to convey your love is with an almond nutty pleasure loaded with chocolate delights and beautiful flowers. Honey roasted almonds, a box of almond brittle chocolates, a luxury chocolate bar, and a choco-chip muffin in a wooden tray with peach roses, carnations, and gypso. Uff, we love it already!

10. Local market gifts

Many of you would love to own the vibrant colours and culture that local handcrafted items evoke. Why not make it a point to shop locally and support small companies while also making your host happy? Handmade shopping baskets, lamps, and shawls are just a few of the unusual products available.


Whatever housewarming gift ideas spring to mind, make sure you know your host and their preferences. It is not necessary for gifts to be unexpected. You can always let them pick exactly what they want so that you can perfectly meet their needs.


With a meaningful housewarming gift, you can now enjoy the celebration and wish your friends the best of times in their new home.
