A silver picture frame is always an elegant choice, and this Kate Spade frame, engraved with the blessing “Happily Ever After,” will make a cherished gift your clients will truly adore. Include a photo of the family in front of their new home for a more personal touch. ($100)
Spectacular charcuterie is this year’s most elegant, entertaining option, offering a perfect accompaniment to a baguette from your favorite local bakery. Your clients will create Instagram-ready spreads with this spectacular handcrafted olive wood cheese board ($49.50) or this sophisticated reclaimed-wood charcuterie board, available in either white or black ($149).
First-time homebuyers may not have gathered the tools they need for ongoing repairs and DIY in their new home. Get them started with this Black + Decker tool kit, including a battery-powered drill, carrying case, and 68-piece toolset. ($74)
There are some items that are so luxe that they redefine their category. The Diptyque Feu de Bois candle is one such item. Featuring a scent reminiscent of a roaring fire, this candle’s fragrance calls to mind all of the warmth and coziness they’ll hope to find in their new home. ($68)
While a nice bottle of wine is always a popular choice, you may be ready for something a little different. Change things up for more sophisticated palates with a nice bottle of craft Scotch or Bourbon and these whiskey coasters from Offerman’s Woodshop. Handcrafted of American cherry wood and customizable, these coasters are truly heirloom quality. ($39 for the coasters)
What’s more exciting than the first morning in a new home? Make sure they’re fueled up for unpacking with this fabulous breakfast kit. With a cast-iron skillet, leather skillet handle, and all the fix-ins for brunch and Bloody Marys, they’re sure to appreciate this thoughtful gift. ($55)
It seems that some clients are buying a new home primarily to give their pets a nicer place to play. If your latest clients are devoted pet parents, they’ll love a custom portrait of their pampered fur-baby. Check out West & Willow for custom modern illustrations or Etsy for charmingly eclectic styles. (Prices vary by style and size.)
Help your clients keep a close eye on their new home with a Nest Hello Video Doorbell or another smart home upgrade. Make your gift even more thoughtful by having your handyman or contractor install it at the client’s convenience. ($229)
Make sure your clients -- and their guests -- feel welcome in their new home with a personalized welcome mat. From elegant to cheeky, you’ll find a variety of styles, including this lovely minimalist design. (Prices vary depending on style, size, and personalization options.)
If your clients have purchased a fixer-upper -- or just have a long honey-do list waiting for them on move-in day -- they will appreciate some expert assistance. Book them a few hours from handy.com, a service with expert repair and assembly pros in major markets all over the US, or hire your own favorite local contractor or service provider to offer a helping hand. (Prices vary.)
Nothing is quite as personal as a sincere, handwritten note. Share a favorite memory, offer a sincere thank-you, and let your clients know how much you value their trust. Make it even more special with a custom serving piece, like this platter, featuring an image of your handwritten message. (Prices vary; $45 for style shown)
Help set up the kitchen -- the heart of the home -- with some beloved kitchen essentials and some new recipe ideas. This year’s most in-demand cookbook is Dessert Person, the first from Bon Appetit’s Claire Saffitz, host of “Gourmet Makes”. ($35) Help your clients clean up after baking with Williams-Sonoma’s utterly essential logo kitchen towels (set of four, $11.99 and up).
Moving day is exciting, but it can be a scary adjustment for the family’s youngest members. Help them get ready for their new home with some gifts that are just for them. First, help parents start talking about the upcoming move with The Berenstain Bears' Moving Day, a classic children’s book by Stan Berenstain ($4.99). Then make that first night in their new room a little more fun with a campout in the gorgeous Children's Teepee from Crate and Barrel ($159).
Want to create a thoughtful, family-friendly gift that they’ll remember long after closing day? Find a fun bag or basket ($28) like this one from Etsy, then fill it with playing cards, board games, puzzles, popcorn, and hot chocolate. Be sure to include some options that are age-appropriate to each member of the family for a truly custom gift.
As you can see, whatever your budget and whatever your client’s personality, these gifts are sure to be welcome, memorable, and, most importantly, thoughtful. By showing your clients that you truly know them, you make them feel valued and appreciated -- something they’ll surely share with friends and family whom they’ll refer to you in the years ahead.
