Creative Real Estate Closing Gift Ideas For Your Clients

By Lindsay Goebel Last Updated May 6, 2020 2 min read

A question we see often in real estate Facebook groups and online forums is what are good closing gift ideas. When choosing a closing gift for your buyer or seller, you want to make sure you are picking something personal or relevant while still adhering to their specific tastes and needs.

According to a 2020 Marketing Trends Report, the top closing gifts this year are personalized and localized gifts ranging from welcome mats and door wreaths to local craft beer and wine.

Below is a curated list of some of our favorite closing gift ideas:

Giftcards

If your clients are closing on their first home or a fixer upper, a collection of gift cards is a great option! Consider selecting gift cards for food delivery services, home improvement centers and online stores for home goods.
