A 'gift' is something given to another person. An 'item' is just a thing. 'Small gift' sounds perfectly natural to me, and I would use that. In the United States, sometimes when a person moves into a neighborhood, the neighbors give the newcomer a gift, which is usually a cake or some kind of food. Usually it is called a 'welcoming present' or 'welcoming gift'
