Whether you’re picking out a closing gift or looking for a small “thank you" present – there are a lot of options out there. So, we’ve whittled it down for you with our 10 gift ideas.
In order to select an appropriate gift, it’s important to understand your client’s preferences and lifestyle. When working with a seller, take note of any clues or decor in their home that reflect their interests or favorite color palettes. If working with a buyer, you’ve likely asked enough questions that not only provide insight on their dream home, but also gives you a glimpse into their personality as well.
To help you get started, we’ve curated a list of 10 gift ideas that are perfect for any season.
1 - Monogrammed Coasters

2 - Indoor House Plant
Indoor house plants are an affordable gift and also offer a variety of benefits, such as improving air quality, reducing stress and brightening up a home. If your clients have pets, consider pet-friendly plants such as orchids or a lucky money tree.
3 - Personalized Address Ink Stamp
Even though we live in a highly digital world, snail mail will still continue to exist in the foreseeable future. Mailing a letter may not be as convenient as sending an email, but you can make the process a little less tedious, and a bit more impressive, with a personalized self-inking address stamp.

4 - Coffee and Hot Cocoa Mug Gift Set
The National Coffee Association did a study this year and found that 63% of Americans drink coffee, so this gift is likely to please! Choose a set of cute mugs, pick up a bag of local coffee and throw in some hot cocoa if the season is right!
5 - Cozy Blanket and Throw Pillow Gift Set
A cozy blanket and throw pillow are the perfect cozy essentials for a cold winter day and they also serve the dual purpose of accenting someone’s living space. You can add some popcorn or other snacks to make it a tasty gift too!
6 - Monogrammed Cheese Board With Wine and Cheese
Wine is a popular closing gift, but stand out by creating a basket of goodies for the perfect night in. Include a monogrammed cheese board and selection of cheeses for your clients for the extra wow-factor!
7 - Amazon Echo Dot
The Echo Dot is a speaker with Alexa. This compact device is great for listening to music and Alexa is also a helpful hands-free assistant. It's the perfect gift for the tech-savvy!
8 - Commissioned Art of Your Client’s New Home
This is a great closing gift for all homebuyers, but it can be especially meaningful for the first-time homebuyer. Even if this is not your client’s forever home, they’ll always be able to cherish the memory of their first home with this gift!
9 - Pet Treat and Toy Subscription Box
Do you have clients who absolutely love their pets? A pet box subscription is a great way to show your clients — and the ones they love oh-so dearly — a token of your appreciation. You can also create your own box by curating a few pet favorites from a local pet store.
10- Nest Thermostat
If you’re looking for a really snazzy gift, the Nest is a great option. It offers your clients control over their thermostat from virtually anywhere and can potentially save your clients hundreds on energy bills each year. (Image: Nest)
If you didn’t find the perfect gift for your client on this list, we hope that it at least spurred some new ideas for you!
