5 Unique Closing Gift Ideas For Buyers That Have Huge Impact

Your client just bought a new home and you're now scratching your brain, what do I give them for a closing gift? Maybe you've always gone the tried and true gift basket route and this time, you want to give something a bit more impactful with some real thought and meaning behind it. You want to be the realtor that clients tell their friends about! You've come to the right place because I've got the best closing gift ideas for buyers that will leave a lasting impression and huge impact on them.

I will preface that what I'm about to share is kind of niche and not a gift that you can give to every one of your clients. You're definitely not going to be giving this to a single bachelor who just moved into his new party pad. You're also probably not going to give this to a couple who just moved into their new stark white modern condo in the middle of a concrete jungle who are big fans of abstract art and claim they hate nature.

Below I'm going to outline 5 examples of the perfect realtor closing gifts for specific buyers and plant some seeds for you (no pun intended) to get the wheels turning.

Are you ready??? But first....

Why Give A Closing Gift?

A closing gift is not only a way of expressing your gratitude but also a way to leave a positive lasting impression. The process of selling and/or buying real estate is fraught with emotion. There are many highs and lows and I'm sure you can agree that it can be compared to a roller coaster ride. You're in this together with your client and at the end of the transaction, when all is said and done, you want to give your client a token of appreciation. The perfect gift will not only make you memorable, but also serve as a way to stand out from others in the market. Give a thoughtful memento and you've given your clients a talking point about you! 

For The Clients Who Sold A Beloved Home

Perhaps your clients decided to downsize and they left behind their home with a very established garden. They mentioned a few times how sad they are to leave behind the lavender beds they planted from seed. You could give them a floral art print of lavender as a memento of their beautiful garden.

Or maybe your clients are a young couple who are welcoming their second baby soon. They bought a bigger house but are leaving behind the home they started their marriage and welcomed their firstborn child in. There's a magnificent lilac/magnolia/maple tree in the front yard. You could gift them a print of that tree as a way to remember their first home.

For The Clients Who Have Relocated

Perhaps your clients made the move from the urban jungle to the country. They bought an old farmhouse that has a massive hydrangea garden all around the home. You could gift them a print of hydrangeas to complement the garden they have outside.

Or maybe your clients moved from the forest to the city but they've mentioned a few times how much they'll miss the fresh air and cedar trees that surrounded their home. Or vice versa, the city mice have become country bumpkins and have pine trees surrounding their new cabin. You could gift them a cedar art print as a memory of where they once lived or have moved to.

For Couples With Young Kids

Your clients have just bought a home in which the kids no longer have to share a bedroom. They're so excited to have their own rooms! Or maybe it's a couple welcoming their first baby and they're super pumped about designing a nursery.

You have two options here:

1) You could give each kid a print of a flower/tree that is in their favourite colour

2) You could give them a personalized gift with their name on it!!! Kids LOVE stuff with their names on it. Imagine their delight (and the parents!) when you give them a gorgeous art print personalized for them??? 


Ways To Elevate Your Gift

You have a client in mind who you want to gift one of my floral art prints, but how are you going to give it to them? I'll tell ya....in a frame with a mat. 

Specifically, in a professionally framed frame (may I suggest light oak) with a double mat. Your framer will be able to guide you on the perfect mat colours to complement the art print, but this is a way to give your gift that extra wow factor and a bit of oomph! Trust me, this is how to do it.

Ps. write a little personalized note with the date on the back for that extra touch.

A closing gift is not just a way to say thank you to your clients, it is a way to leave a lasting impression and make yourself stand out in a competitive market. By choosing a unique and personalized gift, you can show your clients that you truly care and appreciate their business. The key is to make it thoughtful and meaningful. As the saying goes, "it's the thought that counts." So why not level up your closing gift game and give your clients something that they will cherish and remember for years to come? Remember, it's not just about the gift itself, but the gesture and the sentiment behind it. As realtor William James once said, "the deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated." So, show your clients that you appreciate them and go above and beyond with a unique and impactful closing gift.
