It’s that time of year again – the holiday season! And that means that your closing gifts can have a little bit more of a theme than usual. Here are our ideas for holiday closing gifts that your clients will love.
Keep in mind, these are ideas that can be added to a gift basket or given on their own. Use your discretion and follow the budget you’ve set for yourself. Most of all, have fun giving these gifts!
First Christmas Ornament
When a family moves into their house for the first time, especially close to the holidays, an ornament is a nice reminder for years to come of that moment. You can purchase a generic ornament or have one personalized at a store like Things Remembered.
Personalizing can include a simple image of a home with the family’s name and the year. More intricate ornaments can include an actual etched image of the house they purchased.
If you go the personalized route, then consider how much time it takes to create. Back out that time so that you can pay the least shipping (or even get it free!) or avoid costly expediting fees.
Candles may seem like a generic gift, but if you think about how much a new family has on their minds, then a gift of candles would be most welcome. Create a gift basket full of different candles, one for each major room in the house. You can even label each one as such, showing your knowledge of the property.
Along the same lines you can include holiday incense sticks – or do a mix of sticks and candles.
A holiday wreath may be last thing on a homeowners mind when they plan their holiday decorating. You can provide this touch of warmth to a client’s home by gifting this for them as a thank you. Personalize with their name and select a style that fits their decor.
Gift of Experiences
Experience gifts are gaining in popular, especially with families with little kids. They are a great way to teach kids to appreciate time spent together. As a gift for clients, it’s a great way for them to discover new events and places around their new home.
The holidays especially have wonderful opportunities for such gifts. A few ticket ideas:
- Winter wonderland-scapes
- The Nutcracker ballet
- Local holiday fairs
