As a real estate agent, what kind of gift would you enjoy most?
As a realtor, how often do you receive gifts that you genuinely think are funny?
#2 Miniature House Models
A miniature house scale model is a great way of showing your realtor that you put much thought into giving them something that relates to their job. Add more fun by giving them a DIY kit that will allow them to assemble the tiny house model themselves or with their kids.
#3 Pillow with Funny Prints
A pillow with a funny picture or quote is a thoughtful gift that can be appreciated by your realtor. Such items are a reminder of the close relationship you have developed while doing business together.
You can either personalize your pillow gift with a custom print (for example, a real estate-related meme) or choose a ready one.
#4 T-Shirt with a Funny Statement
T-shirts with cute or funny statements printed on them can instantly put a smile on your agent’s face. Your realtor will appreciate wearing something fun and relevant to their profession during casual days.
Also, such a T-shirt may help your agent attract potential clients by showing them that this person is a realtor. See more designs in our guide to funny realtor T-shirts.
#5 Real Estate Agent Coloring Book
A realtor’s life is no walk in the park. Giving a real estate-themed coloring book as a gift is a great idea to help your agent relieve stress, while indulging in a fun activity during their free days.

What do you think would be a funny gift for a real estate agent?
Funny gifts for realtors could be anything that embodies the close relationship between the agent and client or friend. If it’s a gift from a client or coworker, items that bring to mind something funny that happened during a transaction or coworking are a good idea.
Other suggestions from our industry experts include items with cute quotes or statements.
During each transaction, you get to know the clients and share experiences. That is when gifts get personal and more humorous.
For example, I know an agent who gave pillows with their face on them to their buyers, since it took almost a year to find them a home. They spent so much time with each other and they became great friends.
However, the idea of not seeing them each weekend to trek for houses caused them a bit of dismay. So, they can snuggle with a huge face pillow of their favorite realtor to cheer them up!
I’m more practical, so if I wanted to give a gift to another agent as related to real estate and wanted it to be funny, I would probably give a “real estate survival kit” with some screwdrivers, zip ties, hammer, pens, paper, air freshener, aspirin, bottled water, portable charger, protein bar, chocolate, and a roll of toilet paper for those vacant homes!
During every transaction, “something” occurs to laugh about. A gift “commemorating” that occurrence is always funny and memorable.
A shirt with a cute saying would be a funny gift for any real estate agent.
A small house like two inches high!
What would be inappropriate as a funny gift for a real estate agent?
Industry experts believe items that are racial, political, religious, or sexual in nature are inappropriate gifts to give a real estate agent. Gifts that violate ethical standard practices or any laws are also deemed unsuitable.
Alcohol could also pass as an improper funny gift, especially if you intend to give an agent an excessive amount. For our surveyed experts, there’s also nothing funny about receiving a gift with another realtor’s brand or anything that is suggestive in nature.
Inappropriate gifts would include anything that violates fair housing or our ethics standards of practice. Even as friends, it is still a business relationship. I would be offended if anyone broke those rules.
Anything political, such as a Biden/Trump flag. I also think anything about religion is inappropriate.
Anything that suggests a preference of certain property types or types of people.
A counseling gift card, two cases of wine (I think that’s too excessive!), undergarments, or lingerie.
A male giving a suggestive gift to me. I’m married!
Some other realtor’s branded calendar.
Perfume would be an inappropriate gift.
What’s the funniest gift you or another real estate agent you know has received?
According to the experts we surveyed, items that kindly make fun of the agent or those that are obviously obsolete are the funniest gifts that can ever be received by a realtor. T-shirts with funny real estate-themed messages, as well as big stuffed animals, are some of the most hilarious gifts that they have also received.
The funniest gift I believe I have heard of is a compass. The agent was always having a hard time finding the properties they were showing, and when the buyer finally closed on the property, they received a shiny compass. Just like a pirate!
A gift certificate to a sports bar that closed years ago. Also, I received Bengal tickets to the last game of the season. At the time, the team had only one win. I received the tickets two weeks after the game.
I saw an agent in our office with a T-shirt that said “REALTOR because badass miracle worker isn’t a job title”. Love it!
A stuffed dog mascot to ride in the front seat to showings.
