I am a non Muslim and a Muslim friend is moving away to a new home with her husband and young son. What gift can I get her to welcome and bring luck to her new home, and wish her well from my heart? I do not want to offend her by offering her something that she cannot accept.
Thank you.

Thank you for your query.

Your kind gesture would be well appreciated by the Muslim Family. A gift might be something useful for the house, ornaments, kitchen crockery etc. Stay clear of things with meat, alcohol, musical items, items with animate pictures on them, as a general rule of thumb.
