Experience-based gifts that last far beyond closing are a great alternative to traditional closing gifts.
Give the new homeowners a taste of the local scene by showcasing some amazing local spots. You can easily create a gift basket with a couple of gifts from the local stops top it with a dinner reservation and movie or play.

Send in a custom cake and a bottle of wine to the restaurant ahead of time as a nice way to top off their evening.
