I was going to leave a gift for the new owners...would normally opt for champagne, but they are Muslim, so no alcohol - any ideas.

Flowers or a plant? Some nice biscuits?

Tea and biscuits??
What a lovely idea OP- I wish our vendors had left us something other than old carpets and dried out spiders shock

Our sellers cleaned the whole house, cut the grass and left us a hamper!

Chocolates? Flowers in a vase is always welcome. Also leave a note about bin collections etc.

I left our buyers a file full of all the information I could pull together about the house - instruction leaflets, details of paint colours, local info, that sort of thing. Plus a card, welcoming them to their new home. I later got a message to say they were really impressed with it and very grateful.

How about a nice hamper of tea and biscuits? Or perhaps a lovely scented candle?

@DramaAlpaca our sellers did similar and the file of info came in so handy. They also left us a card with a lovely message wishing us well and hoping we enjoyed the house as much as their family had. It was so thoughtful. OP I’m sure they will be thrilled with the gesture whatever you go for, I know I was.

I’m moving out next week, I’ve done a pack with all house/local info in it, instructions for appliances, Paint for touching up walls/doors and I’m leaving them a hamper, they’ve been tolerant to delays, through no fault of my own.

They had 5 grand off the price of the house. They weren't getting anything else.

A nice card and a plant or box of chocs. I'll do the same for my buyers.
