Welcome Home! 10 Clever Real Estate Closing Gifts for Clients
After all the searching and negotiating, your clients are finally settling into their new home. Now that the ink is dry on the closing papers, it’s time to think about the perfect realtor housewarming gift ideas. Closing gifts for buyers serve a couple of purposes: to congratulate the new homeowners and set yourself up for referrals.
Tastes vary from client to client, so finding the right realtor closing gifts can be tricky. Read on to find the best closing gifts for any style or budget.
1. Custom BBQ set
Custom BBQ tools are one of the best gifts for first-time homeowners, and for good reason. Help the grill master break in their new deck or patio with a new grilling set. You can gift it alone or pair it with a personalized apron and custom cooler to create a new homeowner gift basket fit for a king or queen.
2. “Kitchen Essentials” gift basket
The best realtor gifts for clients are often items that serve an everyday purpose. Help your clients break in their new kitchen with a gift basket stuffed with all the essentials, including a custom cutting board, kitchen tools and accessories, flour sack tea towel, Soapbox® gift set, and a personalized potholder or oven mitt. Or, for the budding chef, up the ante with a custom knife set and bamboo cutting board with handle.
3. Tree kit for the green thumb
Do your clients have a green thumb? A grow-your-own tree kit or indoor herb garden is a thoughtful—and sustainable—way to help them put down some roots in their new home. Each kit contains easy-to-follow instructions, so even those that don’t sport a green thumb can help their new plants thrive. Want to do something a little different? Our hydroponic set lets them experiment with soil-free gardening.
4. Custom chocolate gift tower
Nothing says “congrats on your new home” like a real estate closing gift basket full of custom chocolates. Choose an assorted chocolate gift tower full of truffles and cookies or a sweet and salty gift tub with pretzels, hot chocolate, and caramel popcorn. Whatever you choose, the new homeowners will love this sweet and thoughtful gift.
5. Personalized handyman tool kit
A new home comes with new responsibilities—and a lot of maintenance. Help new homeowners get off on the right foot with tool-themed real estate closing gifts. Help them hang pictures and artwork with a personalized measuring tape and level, or make sure all their project needs are covered with a 25-piece super tool kit. They’ll appreciate your gift with every project they take on.
6. Coffee gift box and custom mugs
Buying a home and moving in requires a lot of caffeine, and coffee-themed realtor gifts for clients will never go unused. Give them the gift of a well-deserved break with branded coffee and personalized coffee mugs. You can even make it easy to take their cup of Joe on the road with custom insulated tumblers.
7. Real estate closing gifts for cheese lovers
Help your clients kick back and enjoy their first evening in their new home with a gift basket of gourmet cheeses and cheese accessories. Choose a custom, pre-made gift set full of cheese, sausage, nuts, and crackers, or create your own. Start with a personalized cheese cutting board set and fill it with a variety of cheeses for them to leisurely sample.
8. Closing gift ideas for wine connoisseurs
A bottle of wine and personalized wine glasses are a great gift for almost any occasion, especially when you’re raising a glass to a new home. Welcome your clients home with a bottle of their favorite red or white and custom glasses. Looking for more wine-themed realtor gifts for buyers? A custom ice bucket, wine tote, wine multi-tool set, and a set of stemless wine tumblers are four more closing gift ideas that will get a lot of use—and give you a lot of exposure.
9. “Breakfast in Bed” bundle
Buying a new home calls for a celebratory breakfast in bed, and breakfast-themed housewarming gifts from realtors are a tasty and unique way to congratulate them on this major milestone. A custom breakfast gift box full of pancake mix, tea, granola, and peanut butter makes the perfect meal to nosh on while lounging in bed. Add a personalized Sherpa blanket for an extra-cozy feel.
10. “Family Game Night” kit
A new home calls for new memories to be made, and sometimes the best real estate gifts for clients are the ones that let them enjoy a night in with the family. Fill a gift basket with custom playing cards, brain games, a giant tumble tower game, and a bean bag toss game, and let the fun begin. And don’t forget the snacks! A gourmet popcorn gift set pairs perfectly with any game—or movie—night.
Personalized gifts for clients are a thoughtful way to congratulate them on their new home. At your next closing, leave an impression with one of these housewarming gifts from realtors.
