Want to gift someone a housewarming gift but choices are vast and hard? we have narrowed it for you. If you have a smoke fan, who’s also a Batman fan – we say this Joker inspired ashtray makes for a cool purchase? Even for the non-smokers, we would love to put up this heart-shaped ashtray in our living rooms.

#LBBTip: They also do coffin-shaped and Bob Dylan-inspired ashtrays if that’s what you’re into.

‘Aai-La Ooi-Maa’ Shot Glasses

Raise your hands if Andaz Apna Apna has left an impression on you even after all these years? If you, like us, love Amar and Prem and their witty one-liners, these are the part shots you need to buy! Why? Because it screams their most famous ‘Aai-La‘ by Amar {Aamir Khan} and ‘Oii-Maa‘ by Prem {Salman Khan}. Now our house parties need to be limited to plain old shot glasses.
