Settlement gifts are a key way to showing your clients a genuine appreciation for their business by leaving them something to remember you and your business by. They are a thank you for putting their faith and trust in you to manage such a HUGE life event.

Settlement gifts can be given to the buyers OR the sellers of a property. If you have done a good job and sold their home then it is a little thank you for trusting you with such a big sale and if you have found them their dream home, it’s a little congratulatory gift to make them feel extra special.


Reasons to give a settlement gift:


  1. To thank your clients.
  2. Encourages repeat business.
  3. Helps to generate repeat business.
  4. Shows appreciation.
  5. Makes your client feel valued.

Our top tips for creating great DIY Settlement gifts:


Make it personal

One size does not fit all, we find that often going with the personal approach works best. Treating your clients like individuals, and paying attention to their needs, and tastes will really pay off.

When often making one of the biggest purchases of their life your clients don’t want to feel like they are just another cog in the property machine. They want to feel special and valued, which is why it pays to keep it personal.

For example if your client is pregnant at the time of purchase a big hamper of beers might not be the best choice!! Even if it can be enjoyed later. Homewares that compliment their new property or a voucher for a local experience may be a more appropriate choice.

Getting to know your clients interests and background can really pay off, so you can get that thank you gift just right.

Champagne and other alcohols are always a good (though often obvious choice) which are generally appreciated – the ritual of popping open a bottle of Champagne to celebrate is a good one! But remember, not everyone drinks alcohol, so it is good to perhaps delve a little deeper. 


Make it Keepsake

No one would agree more than us that a bottle of bubbly or an expensive wine is an awesome gift! But once that last bottle has been poured, the bottle is thrown in the bin the memory is gone. This is why the combination of Champers and beautiful drinkware works so well. We are ALL about practical and pretty gifts!

CLINQ has glasses for all types of drinkers! Flutes and Coupe glasses for Champagne drinkers, whisky glasses, Martini glasses for cocktails and our classic Stemless Copper Glasses which work well for wine and all other drinks.


Make it Local

Flowers, hampers, homewares, alcohol, and food are some of the most common settlement gift options. They are common for a good reason, because everyone loves these kinds of gifts. So how can you make them more thoughtful? 

Think local. 

Finding a gift that supports small businesses around the area will surely add to the uniqueness factor of the gift. You could purchase wine from a local winery or vineyard, a gift basket from a local chocolatier or cheeses from a local farm. 

You could pair a beautiful set of cocktail glasses with a voucher for a cocktail making class at the local bar. That way your clients get the combination of a keepsake gift along with a memorable experience in their (possibly new) local area. 

Creating a hamper with local produce and paring with a standout serving board, or a beautiful set of cheese knives that they can use long after the treats have been devoured is always a popular idea.


Make it sharable

Ah the ritual of sharing! If you are looking to make inroads into the local community then get your clients gifts that they can use and share with their neighbours.

Serving boards, wine glasses and and entertaining accessories all. make great sharable gifts. These are the type of gifts that your clients are likely to get out when they invite there new neighbours over for drinks, or a BBQ..prompting the questions about where the items are from, and increasing word of mouth for your business. 


The key to creating the perfect settlement gifts is keeping it personal, remember little bits of info about your clients so that you can get something that they really love.
