The holidays are here! As you celebrate the season, don’t forget about gifts for clients and co-workers. Your successful year in real estate had everything to do with the clients you represented and the team behind you. This year, why not give something unique? Here are 10 unique ideas guaranteed to make them smile!
Holiday Gifts for Clients and Co-Workers
Are you tired of gifting the same thing year after year? Try one of these unique and thoughtful holiday presents that are perfect for everyone on your list.
1. The Gift that Grows
Everyone loves getting flowers, but most don’t last more than a few days. Keep your gift going all year long with a live plant! Some companies, like Lula’s Garden, will even print your name or company on the plant’s container.
2. Gifts of Fortune
Everyone loves a good fortune cookie! Give your clients and co-workers a fun, unique gift that won’t break the bank. You’ll have a blast writing the messages, and the recipients will smile each time they break open one of the custom-made treats.
3. Personalized Charcuterie Board
Charcuterie – a sampling of cheese, meats, fruits, and other fresh ingredients – is all the rage right now. Personalized charcuterie boards are thoughtful and useful gifts for clients and co-workers. They can use the charcuterie board to wow their dinner guests or as a fun at-home date night idea. Even better? Include a sampling of cheeses, meats, and other foods with the charcuterie board.
4. Give the Gift of Gifting
What can you get the person who already has everything? Get them the opportunity to help someone else! Charity donations are always a good idea. If you already have a nonprofit in mind, you can donate on behalf of your clients or team members. You can also let the recipients choose where to send the donation with a Kiva gift card.
5. Gifts in a Box
Subscription boxes are the perfect gift for everyone on your list. There’s a box for every person and every interest. And if you’re a last-minute shopper, you’re in luck! From Dec 20-25, subscribers get 20% off their purchase when subscribing for three months or more. Want a gift they’ll remember long after the tree is put away? Give a subscription box that makes them think of you every month!
6. A Caffeinated Christmas
Most of us can use a pick-me-up this time of year. Why not send some morning motivation? Custom Coffees creates personalized blends, complete with your company logo. They offer bulk discounts as well, making this the perfect gift for everyone on your list!
7. Go Local
If you’re looking for something unique this holiday season, look no further than your own town. There are plenty of creative small businesses near you, each waiting to partner with your company. Keeping your business local not only helps your town’s economy, but also gets your name out in the community. Consider gift cards to locally-owned restaurants, too!

8. Photo Gifts
If you want to ensure your clients keep the gifts you give, make them extra special. Ask your clients and co-workers for a family photo before the holidays. You might also consider taking pictures of your clients as you work with them throughout the year – in front of their new home, for instance, or during a client appreciation event. Then, use these photos to order one-of-a-kind photo gifts for clients and co-workers. While these presents take some planning, they’re incredibly thoughtful and are sure to be a hit.
9. Amazon Gift Cards
Okay, so this one might not be entirely unique, but it’s a reliable favorite. You can find just about everything on Amazon, so gift cards are destined to be favorite gifts for clients and co-workers alike. It’s easy to purchase cards in bulk or send e-gift cards online.
10. A Sincere Note of Appreciation
Meaningful gifts don’t have to cost a lot. In fact, the most thoughtful and heartfelt gifts cost hardly anything at all. Handwritten cards are uncommon in today’s digital world, but they are appreciated more than ever. Purchase some beautiful notecards and spend some time writing personal notes to your clients and co-workers. Your time and kind words are a gift in themselves.
