The Real Estate Christmas Gift Guide


“What would you like for Christmas?”

Why is this seemingly easy question so hard to answer?!  I don’t know about you, but whenever someone asks me this I instantly draw a blank and end up mumbling something about “needing more socks”.

It is a strange phenomenon, we spend so much time pining for all sorts of things, but the moment someone asks us to articulate our desires we can’t think of a single thing we need or want.

Well no more!  Here is a short guide to some useful gift ideas that any real estate professional would love.  Keep these in the back of your mind, and the next time someone asks you about your wish list you will have some ideas to give them.  Trust me, its much better then finding piles of socks under the tree come Christmas morning…

Wine Library’s Wine of the Month Club

Sometimes the best gift to give is the gift of relaxation.  What better way to relax than with a specially selected wine?  Especially when it is a unique wine that is delivered to you every month!  Not a wine drinker?  This would still make a great closing gift, or you can look into something like the Bacon of the Month Club.

Finally, if you still can’t think of anything worth asking for or if giving is more your style, consider making a charitable donation.  There are lots of great organizations that are making amazing things happen all over the world, but they depend on your donations to make it a reality.

Two of our favorite charities at Point2 are Kiva, a charity which provides micro-loans to people in order for them to create sustainable business, and The Prostate Cancer Research Institute of Canada which we raised money for by taking part in Movember.  After all, giving feels just as good as receiving!
