Holiday Time - Client Appreciation Pop-By Gifts

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Professionals BK659643

My favorite thing about the holidays is BAKING!!  I love to bake breads and cookies.  So this year I am doing my holiday pop-by gifts with my favorite things!!

Today I finished my first round of baking and am now out of supplies, so thought I would blog about my creations, before heading to the store for more "stuff".  I will do another round of breads tomorrow, and then.....COOKIES!!  Cookies is huge issue for me, I have made cookie-platters an art form  :)

Holiday TinsBaking is a Holiday Obsession for me, and it's fun! 

I make a great banana bread and top it will mini-chocolate morsels.....I can't wait to cut a slice for myself tonight.

I found these adorable Holiday themed Metal Tins at the Dollar Tree store.  The bread is done in the Mini-Loaf pans.

I wrap each loaf with holiday colored plastic wrap. Put a loaf into each Holiday tin and then surround the bread with chocolates.

Since the tins are metal, I put my business card magnet on the inside of the tin cover.  Beautiful bow on top with my Christmas Card attached.

I will be a Santa Elf this week, driving all over town delivering my Holiday Pop-By's to my A++ clients

Some tins will have bread and chocolates, and others with Cookies!                     Yummy!

This is really a cute idea!  Much more personal that the cards I've sent out this year, that's for sure.  I may have to plan on something like this, instead, for next year.

looks great but if I baked my referral business would likely be with the mortician.

Curiosity-  Do you get responce from that?  Or are they only clients that know you? 

I had a church in my area drop off cookies.  I thanked then talked to them and said goodbye.  I was on my way out and put them on the counter meaning to throw them away.  I have no idea who made them?  When I got home my wife had started into them.  I told the kids they could not have any yet (checking to see if she died first).  We did just end up throwing everything away though. 

I did feel bad for being suspisious by a kind act, but just not comfortable trusting like that.

Hi Chris!

I am in the Vancouver, WA area and also did Christmas pop-bys!  I am not a baker but I ended up going to the Dollar Store and buying Christmas coffee mugs and coffee, hot chocolate, popcorn, and for my clients that like to drink, I threw in a couple of those tiny bottles of cognac or Bailey's.  They were a huge success!

Thanks again for the advice!
