    Not sure if it would work but I received a basket with lots of different herbs and spices and spreads and tinned food from a friend when I moved into my house. I thought it was great.
    Maybe a candle or something

    Eta maybe vase would be useful

    What about going to a deli and buying some more expensive items, that people may not buy themselves on a day-to-day basis. they are things that will definitely be used.
