Closing gifts for Relos?

By
Real Estate Agent with Leo Lawrence Real Estate

So, I have a Seller who is relocating to NC from St. Louis. I want to give a nice closing gift. There is a possibility they will be moving back in a year and they still have lots of friends here so I want to make it something they will remember and hopefully refer me to others!

I have been considering giving a restaurant gift card in their new town, or maybe a flower of the month club. I also saw a company that sells magazine subs and brands them for you- this might be a good one.

Anyone have any good thoughts for this? Since they won't be in town after the move, I don't want to give anything too local....

I would LOVE some suggestions! I have seen a lot of posts about gifts but not one that addresses this specific situation.

I have a great idea! 

I have one of those nice organic places deliver a fruit of the month for three month, then again at Thanksgiving, Christmas and then on thier 1 year anniversary.  It's garanteed to keep you in front of your clients.  I love to use Harry and David's mostly because it come nicely packaged is priced reasonably and I can order online, no need to talk to annoying telesales!  That and the fact i get a discount on a gift for me....Chose the cheesecake MMmmmm yummy!

Hi Jennifer, I like the magazine idea especially when your name is on the label --- it'll remind them of you every month!  The other thing you could check into is a newspaper subscription at their new locale! Again, they'll remember you every morning!

I've done wine of the month club before (if the price range justifies it) and magazines as well.

So, I decided on a gift certificate to a restaurant near their new home, and a stamped set of postcards announcing their move that they can send out. Since this couple will potentially be moving  back here in a year (husband is on sabbatical from local university), I want to make a good impression. I plan to keep them on my email and direct mail lists also...

Thanks to everyone who commented! Keep the ideas coming!
