What to Get Your Heber Springs Renters for the Holidays

Christmas Gift Basket for Heber Springs TenantsAs a Heber Springs landlord, you truly understand that a great tenant can be quite hard to find – and sometimes, even more, difficult to keep. To develop and nurture good relations with your tenants, one simple and definitely worry-free thing you can do is to give them a small appreciation gift for the holidays. Keeping your tenants happy can take effort, but a happy tenant is one who is more likely to take good care of your property, pay their rent on time, and stay in the rental home for long. Even something as small as a simple holiday gift could let them understand that you appreciate them – and would like them to stay.

A thoughtful tenant gift is one that your renters can use, but that is appropriate for their particular status and situation. A few of the best tenant gifts are, as well, housewarming gifts because they tend to be welcome things for almost everyone. A box of gourmet cookies or a bottle of wine may be just the thing to extend your regard and to build rapport with your tenants. A little houseplant, a thank-you card, or a set of monogrammed coasters are furthermore great ideas and would likely be both really useful and well-liked by your tenants.

If it happens that you think that giving your tenants a traditional housewarming gift isn’t quite your preferred style, other measures may make more sense. Most tenants may appreciate a free property upgrade in lieu of a gift. One relatively inexpensive upgrade that will make your rental property comfortable (and more pleasing to future tenants) is installing USB ports or one or more smart devices. Even a basic video doorbell or smart thermostat could mean a lot to your tenant while also increasing the value of your property. It’s an investment that is in all likelihood to pay off in numerous ways.

Several tenant gift ideas are less than tangible, but on the other hand, no less appreciated. As an instance, if you have multiple tenants in the same town, consider hosting a fun event for your tenants, like a free movie night or gathering. One other way would be to gift them a helpful service, such as water or furnace filter delivery. If financially viable, you may similarly think about extending them a short break on any upcoming rent increases, like delaying their increase for a few months. Send them a nice card expressing your intentions, and most likely, they will be very pleased with the gift of decreased rent for a few months longer than they may have expected.

At the very minimum, you should be sending your tenants a card or other acknowledgment for the holidays. Not only is this a good habit to get into, typically, but certainly, it could be just as effective as a gift in encouraging goodwill. Although, if you decide to send a card to your tenants, it’s relevant to be mindful of different religions and cultures. Not all people celebrate Christmas, so unless you are positive that your tenants do, it’s just perfect to wish them instead “Happy Holidays.” In this fashion, you can express respect for your tenants while sending good wishes their way.


Doesn’t matter what you get your renters for the holidays, just make sure that it is thoughtful and appropriate. Conceding that it may take some time to actually choose and give the right gift, ultimately, those efforts will be well worth it. Needless to say, if you live at a distance from your properties or find yourself short on time, another great option is to hire a professional Heber Springs property manager to do it for you.
