Pop by gifts are small, inexpensive gifts that you hand out to your past clients when you “pop by” their homes. Typically, you’ll write a short real estate-themed message to go along with the gift. These notes could ask for referrals or just for your client to think of you whenever they need to buy or sell a home. In this post, we’ll explore 15 memorable pop by ideas that will be sure to impress your clients and win you more referrals for your real estate business.

Be sure to write your contact information on the back of the tag, which is available as a download on Etsy.
12. Peppermint Hot Cocoa Kit
You can always purchase a peppermint hot cocoa kit during the holiday season. But if you have the time, making a homemade version is much more meaningful. Follow this recipe by Alejandra Ramos and pair it with a holiday-themed personalized tag from REdigitalassist’s Etsy store. Or, write your own real estate-themed gift tag.
11. Hand Soap Dispenser
This hand soap-themed tag, also available on REdigitalassist’s Etsy store, can be used with several different pop by ideas. For example, instead of an ordinary hand soap bottle, you can pair it with holiday-themed hand soaps. Or, you can also use lotion, a soap bar, hand sanitizer, or a similar product as a gift.

Pumpkin carving tools make a wonderful Halloween-themed gift, especially for families with children. Alternatively, you can also give a small pumpkin as a gift as well.

Call me for the latest real estate news.” This gift tag is especially effective because it positions you as a go-to authority on the latest trends in the housing market.
7. Banana Bread
If you’re looking to put your baking skills to good use, consider baking homemade banana bread or another baked good as a pop by gift.
