Muslim clients of mine are closing on their new home shortly.  I typically give a house-warming gift of bread/salt/wine w/nice glasses & some chocolates.  I know the alcohol is inappropriate for them as a gift, so am wondering if replacing the wine with a sparkling non-alcoholic beverage would be good, or would a completely different type of gift be more welcome & appropriate?  I would spend about $75+/-.

I really appreciate this assistance.  Thank you

Give whatever you would to your other clients, using non-alcoholic, vegetarian options.

Its such a sweet thing to do.

Hi,

You could definitely bring one of those sparkling apple cider bottles with your usual gifts, that is very nice as a house warming gift, but I'll tell you traditionally Muslims would bring like a dessert when they go to someone's house. What about a tray of baklava like this: http://www.shatila.com/ (I've ordered from them many times, they are deelicious Smiley They range from about $25 to $45 and then there's shipping)

Sr. Kathy, the original poster is not Muslim so this is why she's asking.
