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.

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

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.

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!
