Best Closing Gifts

Gift Ideas for Realtors Representing Home Sellers


Featured Gift for Home Sellers >> Lula's Garden ® Thank You Jewel Succulent Box

Although not every broker or agent remembers to send a closing gift, we believe no matter the size of the commission, every client should be thanked for their business. The whole process of selling one's home is fraught with emotion. The last impression you make should be one of joyous celebration. Hence, our primary recommendation of a giant gift basket filled with champagne, wine, or coffee paired with chocolates as the perfect feel good gift.

And we repeat – there is absolutely no doubt that if you represent a home seller in any transaction no matter how big or how small or how easy or difficult they were to work with you should send them a lovely congratulatory gift thanking them for their business and for putting their trust in you.

Day in and day out our most asked question is how much should I spend. Here are our general recommendations:

Homes valued at < $500,000 -> spend up to $200

Homes valued at > $1,000,000 -> spend up to $500

Spoil & Splurge -> spend more than $500

Real Estate Client Home Seller Gift Ideas

You can seldom go wrong with a bottle of celebratory. champagne or a gorgeous and regal orchid.or even a fun confetti cake.

Beautiful Celebratory Gift Baskets

After much research, we have found that offers the highest quality of wines and champagnes at the best price. And as most people who have ever received a gift basket well know, we all immediately separate the “junk” from the wine? Have you checked your home cupboard or pantry recently? I promise you you still have a pack of “Berry Good Snack Mix” or “Pomegranate Puffs” hiding unopened behind the crackers some place. Let’s be real, all anyone really cares about is the wine (or coffee) and the chocolate. Gourmet Gift Baskets gets it – they keep it simple and stick to the good stuff! And now you can even buy them on Amazon

Subscription Wine Club

Alternatively, who says closing gifts must be limited to the day of closing? Marketing experts will tell you that most often it is the number of quality touches between two people that cement relationships. Any gift is great but a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year(s) is even better. This is where the idea of gifting a fabulous wine club subscription becomes a smart business decision. For just about $150.00 ( the same cost as many of the recommended gift baskets and suitcases) your clients will receive a lovely gift from you once every quarter (yes – you read that correctly 4x a year they will receive a little gift of thanks from you and your firm.) All we can say is this is way more bang for your marketing bucks! The one drawback is that the initial gift may not have the WOW impact of some of the large baskets.

With lots of wine clubs from which to choose, how do you narrow the choices? After reading a slew of reviews, we finally decided upon The California Wine Club.  We like the club choices. We like the wines. And we really like the people behind the site. We were having trouble understanding the various signature requirements needed, so we called (ok, so we called a few times) and everyone we spoke with was knowledgeable, kind and more than patient with our endless questions.

Does your client prefer beer? The same strategy applies — check out our favorite craft beer club.

Restaurant Gift Cards Food Gifts Delivered

We used to recommend gift cards but with all the fraud in the gift card world, unless you call the restaurant directly or have complete faith in how you procure the gift card, pivot. Now we recommend having a food gift delivered directly to your client's front door. Even without sending a restaurant gift card you can still treat your clients to a celebratory dinner! Choose a special occasion type of dinner such as a surf and turf dinner. Here are a few more of our favorite food gifts delivered.

Personalized Gifts for Home Sellers

We love personalized gift for clients. They make a positive, lasting impressions.
