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:
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.
This closing gift option will allow your clients to begin their journey into home ownership right away while also going at their own pace.
Food delivery services – Ubereats, Grubhub, Doordash
Home improvement centers – Home Depot, Lowe’s, ACE
Coffee – Starbucks, Einstein’s
Online stores – Amazon
Subscription Boxes (1-3months)
Subscription boxes have picked up major popularity over the last few years. There are several different types of boxes you can select from depending on the hobbies and needs of your clients.
You can choose from a variety of different meal kits, wine boxes, beauty supply kits, pet-focuses kits, and more. We love this closing gift idea because it’s a real treat for your client to receive a surprise box for the first 3 months they are settling in.

Personalized Gift (Etsy.com)
If you know your clients well, a super personalized gift could be the way to go. Make sure it’s something they can use or display without creating more clutter for them. A customized welcome mat or return address stamp are two closing gift ideas for new homeowners.
If your clients are travelers, consider a monogrammed bag or dopp kit. Likewise, if your clients enjoy camping and hiking, consider a pair of personalized campfire mugs.
