With Christmas just around the corner, now is a great time to nourish those client relationships and start thinking about the best gifts you can give to those wonderful folks who keep you in business.
Whether you’re looking for a small token of your gratitude or a more grand purchase, we’ve got you covered. Take advantage of all the Black Friday savings this weekend and get your shop on with us! We even made you a little cheat sheet with ideas for every price range…
Gifts Under $50
Gift baskets are a go-to professional gift for any occasion. You can create your own unique baskets with thoughtful themes and pieces specific to your clients, or make it easy and turn to companies like Amazon that sell pre-arranged ones. A hot beverage theme (with mugs, coffees from around the world, creamers, teas and sweet biscuits) makes for a great holiday basket. You can also put together a basket with a home improvement theme, filled with tools, gift cards to home stores, garden gloves and other around-the-house must haves. If you’re going the pre-made route, we’re loving this easy and delicious basket of sweet treats from Amazon!
Have you helped any clients close on a home this year? What better way to commemorate a client’s new home in the holiday season than a personalized ornament? For a low cost, you can give them something special to hang on the tree for their first Christmas in their new home. Use a photo of them, or feature a graphic representing something they love. Your client will be thinking of you when they hang it this year and for all the Christmases to come!
Gifts From $50-$100
For the client who loves baked goods (who doesn’t?) go for one of our favorites… fresh baked scones from Seven Sisters Scones! This mini-scone sampler pack comes with 24 unique and delicious scones that your clients will love. Alternatively, if you have a client who is vegan or gluten free, you can always bake your own tasty treats for them!
You can’t go wrong with a celebratory bottle of champagne during the holidays. We’ve all got a list of parties to attend this time of year, so you know it won’t go to waste. Of course, you don’t want to give your clients something too cheap… so go for that trusty bottle of Veuve. Why not make it easy and scoop one up on Amazon? That’s right – all the items you could possibly need are still just a click away.
Do you have a client who’s a bit of a security buff? Give the gift of peace of mind with a practical present, like this smart doorbell! It’s fitting for the person who helped them secure their home also secure it in another way, right? This security geared doorbell with video technology is something your client will actually use and appreciate.
Gifts For $100+
If subscription boxes are your thing, Cratejoy is your one-stop-shop. They’ve got gifts for everyone on your list, with themes to suit all tastes! Like we mentioned above, the value in subscription boxes is the routine presence in your clients’ lives… so this is definitely a smart move when it comes to gift giving!
For the wine connoisseur on your client list, we’ve got the perfect gift idea. The California Wine Club offers a selection of hand-selected, award-winning wines to suit all tastes. You can choose from several great wine of the month clubs to fit any budget; This is a gift that keeps on giving, so you can stay at the top of your client’s mind when they receive their delicious wines every month! And for the hard-working Realtor, perhaps this is a great gift to give to yourself to remind you throughout next year to stay motivated!
Online shopping always gets the job done easily, but we’re fans of keeping it local, too. Treat your closer clients to a special night out at their favorite restaurant, or a beautiful piece from a local artist to decorate their home. You can also try a gift card to a local nursery – because who can ever have enough plants?
