It’s often been said that buying a home might be the most important financial decision we ever make. 

For Realtors, helping new buyers achieve their dream of home ownership is the most rewarding part of the job. 

What better way to commemorate the occasion of closing on their dream home than with a special gift? 

Here are just a few ideas that come to mind. These are unique gift ideas that I think will make a lasting impression on your clients and show them that you’re more than just their agent – you’re their friend. 

Here are 8 creative closing gift ideas for Lake Norman Realtors!

FilterTime is a local business that offers subscription plans for homeowners to receive the air filters for their HVAC system automatically.

This one is a no-brainer! Until I discovered FilterTime, I was always forgetting to replace the air filters in our house. Now, they show up at our front door every two months.

Founded by NASCAR drivers, Blake Koch and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. 

Buy your clients a subscription and they’ll be reminded of you every time their air filters arrive at their door.

Juelerye is a boutique gallery located in the heart of downtown Mooresville, right next door to Epic Chophouse.

Owner Jacqueline Bassett curates some of the most beautiful gifts and artwork that you’ll find in the Charlotte area.

For those special clients, I highly recommend visiting Juelerye and selecting a piece of art for their new home.

Everyone loves charcuterie! Table & Board is the Lake Norman area’s premier source for custom charcuterie boards and grazing tables.

Table & Board is also a great idea for an open house. 

In addition to charcuterie, a gift card for their in-person charcuterie workshops makes a great gift.

Speaking of beautiful gifts – a floral arrangement from Blumengärten is always spectacular. 

Blumengärten is also a great choice for enhancing an open house with centerpiece arrangements.

A gift card to Blumengärten Florist is also a great choice, and your clients can also use the gift card toward one of Blumengärten’s in-person floral design workshops.

Gift the gift of a sunset cruise on Lake Norman! After all, the lake itself is Lake Norman’s biggest attraction.

A sunset cruise is a gift that will surely impress your clients and something that they can share with the whole family.

My two favorite local companies are Carolina Cruising Charters and Party Pontoon – both have been featured on The Best of LKN podcast!

Postmarked is a package and shipping store in Cornelius. But, it’s really so much more. 

Not only will Postmarked be a great resource for your clients to know about when they move to Lake Norman, but the store also has one of the most amazing selections of unique gifts in the area!

Plus, this is Lake Norman’s greeting card headquarters. I’ve found the most unique greeting cards here, and this is my go-to palace when it’s time to help someone celebrate something special.

Oh, and Postmarked is also the only place in the Lake Norman area that ships wine.

For those really special clients, consider purchasing a unique piece of furniture for their new home. 

Knotty & Board in Davidson is a beautiful spot to shop for unique furnishings and home decor.

Owner Kim Hankins is also an experienced interior designer and can help you find a piece that will go perfectly in the client’s new home.

Plus, once again, the piece of furniture or decor item from Knotty & Board will forever remind your clients of you and your service to them during their home purchase.
