5. Wine & Hammer

A slightly simpler and more artsy approach that will be appreciated more and more with each delightful sip is 2713bc347d0ea6a10b03c09a0eafaf7fthe cute combination of a bottle of wine with a hammer attached to it, usually strung together by a red ribbon or twine. As we all know, tools and alcohol are always a great mix (this is sarcasm, folks; SAFETY FIRST). In all honesty, though, your investor friend or family member will love this highly useful gift that combines all of their interests into one cutely ribboned package.

Note: Wine may be replaced with Jack Daniels if full-time investor or struggling newbie.

6. Personalized Pen

One gift that is sure to please is a personalized pen. There is something empowering about having your very own pen — one that signs the documents that grow and seal your future for years to come.

7. Home Assessment Tool Kit

If your investor is a beginner, THEY NEED THIS. If they are a pro, THEY NEED THIS. Ok, maybe it’s not an absolute necessity, but highly recommended indeed. Part of being an investor is being able to identify what condition the home is in. You never know when they’ll be out and find that perfect house. This kit might include a flashlight, a marble to test the slope of the floors, a small level to check out other features of the house and a pen and notepad for taking notes.

8. BiggerPockets Pro Membership

avatarObviously, the best present on this entire list (all biases included) is the sweet, sweet gift of a Pro membership on BiggerPockets. Networking, unlimited analysis calculator use, business promotion, and more that you can learn about at www.BiggerPockets.com/Pro.

But really, if your investor loves BiggerPockets and isn’t a Pro member yet, it’s a wonderful gift that won’t disappoint.

9. Leads and Business

If there is any gift that keeps on giving, it’s the gift of more leads. Potential business will put the biggest smile on your investor’s face. Share with your investor whatever knowledge you have of possible properties. In the end, this is a costless gift that can potentially put more money in their pockets than an engraved pen and Home Depot card combined.


The holidays are a beautiful and joyous time of year. It’s a time meant to be shared with loved ones and a time to show appreciation for those who matter to you. So, I hope this short but sure-to-please list of gifts can help you show some appreciation for that investor you care about.

So investors: What’s on YOUR list — to give or get?

    Great list, Zach!

    You are right, there is nothing better than a lead or new business opportunity. It’s definitely the gift I’d most like to receive this year!

    That said, you’ve encouraged me to find a way to give that gift to others this holiday season. Thanks so much!

      Thanks, Douglas!

      An iPad can last a few years (if you don’t drop it of course). A bottle of wine can be finished in a week or two (or a night if the occasion calls for it). But, a lead or new business can last many many years to come.

      Happy Holidays! 🙂
