Gifts for the Home

You’re in the business of helping people find a place to call home. Gifting something for the home just makes sense.

 

Go small

  • A pair of locally made taper candles, tied with a bow
  • A jar of amazing jam, spread, or hot sauce from a neighbourhood eatery
  • A dozen out-of-this-world cookies from a beloved bakery

 

Go mid-range

  • An easy-to-care-for houseplant in a ceramic pot (bonus points if the pot is made by a local ceramicist)
  • A contemporary holiday front-door wreath
  • A pair of cool candlestick holders
  • A set of linen napkins, or a minimalist table runner
  • A DIY holiday cocktail kit (e.g. a bottle of spirits, bitters, and an artisanal cocktail syrup)

 

Go big

  • A subscription to a streaming service
  • A luxe throw blanket in a neutral colour
  • A six-month subscription to a wine club
  • A smart Bluetooth speaker
  • A pack of house-cleaning appointments

 

Gifts from the Heart

Maybe you have a client that you want to strike a more personal tone with when it comes to your gift. Here’s what we suggest.

 

Go small

  • A framed photo (the one you took of your client standing excitedly in front of their new home)
  • An engraved keyring
  • A perfect-for-them gift card, to a place you know they love (something you remember them mentioning, or a detail you glean from their Instagram account)
  • Gourmet dog treats for their pup
  • A handmade stuffed animal for their new baby

 

Go mid-range

  • A custom portrait of your client and/or their new home (ask around for recommendations of local artists who offer custom work, or have a look on Etsy; it’s a popular product)
  • A framed copy of their house blueprints
  • A personalized book for their kids, featuring the children’s names and their home address

 

Go big

  • A personalized mailbox
  • A set of plush monogrammed hand towels in a neutral colour
  • A custom set of minimalist address numbers for their home’s exterior

 

Gifts of Experience

Not everyone needs or wants more “stuff.” Sometimes, the most cherished presents are those that involve activities, experiences, food, drink, or something that sets the scene for making memories.

 

Go small

  • A Sunday mimosa kit (e.g. freshly squeezed orange juice and a bottle of prosecco)
  • A favourite family-friendly board game
  • A DIY baking kit with all the ingredients needed to make a holiday treat

 

Go mid-range

  • A meal delivery gift card for ordering local takeout (offer some suggestions for your favourite restaurants and dishes)
  • A craft beer sampler pack, featuring interesting local brews
  • A holiday movie night basket, packed with gourmet popcorn, candy, wine, pop, and a curated list of holiday films

 

Go big

  • A selection of gift cards for your favourite local restaurants
  • A membership to a local fitness, recreation or play centre
  • A pack of movie tickets

 

Gifts of Charity

‘Tis the season for giving and giving back. If no gift feels quite right for your client(s), consider making a donation of some sort in their name and writing a heartfelt card with proof of your gift. It’s a gesture that’s guaranteed to be appreciated.

 

Go small

  • Assemble a food hamper for your local food bank
  • A monetary donation to an organization of your choosing (or one that you know is close to your client’s heart)
  • Purchase much-needed items for unhoused people in your community (e.g. socks, gloves, hats, and scarves)

 

Go mid-range

  • Purchase holiday gifts for a senior or child in need (through a local community services group)
  • “Adopt” an animal through the World Wildlife Fund
  • Assemble (or sponsor) care packages for those spending the holidays in hospital
  • A monetary donation to an organization of your choosing (or one that you know is close to your client’s heart)

 

Go big

  • Purchase holiday gifts for an entire local family (through a local community services group)
  • Sponsor a child through a reputable child aid organization
  • A monetary donation to an organization of your choosing (or one that you know is close to your client’s heart)
