Last fall’s 5 Fun Agent Pop-By Ideas post was such a big hit that we decided to create a summer version!
In case you’re unfamiliar with the term, a “pop-by gift” is an inexpensive present that you can give on any occasion (when you’re just “popping by”). These gifts show appreciation and help keep the giver top of mind. Pop-by gifts can be delivered to current and former clients, referral sources, colleagues and more.
And here’s a tip: no matter the size or style of your gift, be sure to include your current contact information somewhere so your recipients can easily get in touch with you.
We’ve rounded up some wonderful pop-by gift inspiration below. Take a look!
Box of Sunshine
How much fun is this? Pack up some tasty yellow-hued treats and toys to deliver a box of sunshine to brighten someone’s day.
Thanks a Latte
This little pick me up can be popped in the mail and is appropriate any time of year! Add a note to say why you’re thankful and mention that you’d love to catch up in person soon.
Welcome to the Neighbourhood
What’s unique to your area? Is there a local jam, candle maker or coffee roaster? Wrap up a little local flavour using this thoughtful card to welcome your new buyers to the neighbourhood.
Keep Your Kool
This inexpensive pop-by gift is ideal to make ahead and drop off on walks around your farm area. All you need is a crazy straw, a packet of Kool-Aid and a printout that you can attach your business card to. “Navigating through buying or selling a home can make you CRAZY. Keep your KOOL and call a professional. I’m here to help with all your real estate needs!”
Bag up some highlighters with a note and hand them out to other professionals that have sent business your way. “Your referrals are the ‘hi-lite’ of my day.” This is a good one for the loan professionals in your life.
Ice Cream Sundae Kit
This is a great closing gift for a young family or a fun way to perk up a hot office midweek. Create a package filled with an assortment of sprinkles, a special ice cream scooper, fun napkins, cute bowls and sugar cones. You can even add a silly note like, “It’s been such a treat working with you. Stay cool!” Just add a pint of your favourite ice cream.
Do you have a go-to gift that’s a big hit with your clients? We’d love to hear what it is!
