I was about eight years old when I vividly remember playing with one of my friends on the balcony. While she was busy setting up her barbie kitchen my focus would always be on embellishing the house. Making mini furniture out of cardboard boxes every day I would refurbish her Barbie house. I have treasured those mini versions of my creativity along with a folder of newspaper cuttings or magazines of interiors of the houses.
This dream came true when we purchased a house in Bangalore. Buying a house can be overwhelming sometimes as emotional as it can get too. Moving into our new house and making it a home is a priceless experience I have had so far. Our family and friends also played their part in gifting us everything possible for the housewarming. We have had our share of useless gifts too (the recycled gifts).
While the process of relocation can be a little engulfing, we can help people by offering a thoughtful and practical gift. Although we can find several gifts for housewarming online, it is always tricky to choose the right ones. Here are five unique housewarming gifts that I think are absolutely on par for this era.
