10 Moving Day Gift Ideas for Chattanooga Realtors

We’ve all see that classic scene in “It’s a Wonderful Life” where George and Mary greet new home buyers with bread, salt, and a bottle of wine. It’s a thoughtful gesture that bestows both well wishes and gratitude to clients. Today, realtors often consider the passing of the keys as the closing day gift. Far too often, the personal touches are skipped over in favor of quick turnarounds and the next opportunity. Realtors, if you don’t get your clients a closing day gift, you’re squandering a massive opportunity to make a client-for-life! Need some ideas for how to make your gift memorable and original? Here are 10 great closing day gift ideas to get your mind churning!

  1. A Welcome Mat – Help your clients feel right at home right away, and get them ready to welcome their first guests. You can get a personalized mat from Bed, Bath, and Beyond for less than $30!
  2. A Framed Family Photo – Some families feel like a new house is their home when the pictures are up. Get them started on that with a nice framed family photo. Do your best to get the photo first- it looks a lot better than a blank frame.
  3. A Gift Card to a Nearby Restaurant – A new area means different restaurants. Find some local flavor or make dinner planning easy with a gift card to a restaurant close by. Just scout out Yelp and check out some nearby options.
  4. A Visitor’s Book for the House – Like a welcome mat, a book to record visitors gets them ready to entertain and welcome in friends and family. Head over to Shadowbox Paperie in Warehouse Row for some awesome, stylish options.
  5. A Dog Leash or Bowl  – Humans aren’t the only ones moving into a new place, give their four-legged companions some love with a new leash or toy to enjoy in their new surroundings. How great are these monogrammed options for $15 on Amazon?!?
  6. A Starbucks Gift Card – Some clients have to get right to work, and the coffee maker hasn’t even been unpacked yet. Help them out in the mornings with a gift card to a local coffee shop that’s close or on the way.
  7. A Special Cookbook – That updated kitchen is going to get some miles and use out of it, so let’s get them cooking with a ton of recipes. We recommend the Chattanooga Junior League cookbook which you can find at Sophie’s in North Chattanooga!
  8. A Growler Fill and a Pizza Gift Certificate – Moving day is hard on everyone, give your clients a break with a gift certificate for some local craft brews and a good pizza. This simple gesture can go a long way to make moving day so much easier! We’re partial to OddStory Brewing Company!
  9. A Nice Bottle of Wine or Champagne to Celebrate – Need we say more? Feeling “extra”? You can get a custom label at a few of our local liquor stores!
  10. A Stationary Set with Their New Address– One of the most personal and meaningful touches for your clients, with their new address on the return, a stamp, or other stationery pieces to make their new residence even more special. Seriously- watch the tears start flowing when they see their new address for the first time!
