After picking up the lost item, speak with every villager on your island. They will point you towards the right villager to return the item to.

When you return the lost item to the villager that owns it, they'll give you a thank-you reward. Rewards are usually random pieces of clothing & furniture.

Cannot Return If You Time Traveled!

Cannot Return If You Time Traveled

If you time travel while a lost item is in your bag, you won't be able to return it to anyone. It will be an unknown item in your inventory so be sure to return it first before moving time forward. (If this happens, you can just sell the item, throw it out in a garbage can, or hand it off to Tommy.)
