The Perfect Home Staging Thank You or Realtor Thank You Gift!

When it comes to giving a thank you gift to a client, it is always tricky to decide on what is the best course of action.  As a professional home stager, my preference is to always give a small thank you gift to any home staging client that has purchased my services. To create excellent customer relationships, it is important to show my appreciation for their business.  Being a home stager and certified redesigner, my thank you gift also needs to be of a design origin that will complement the home that was just staged or redesigned.

feng shui design by kates home staging in rockland county, nyTo further clarify the issue, Feng Shui principles were implemented. Feng Shui believes in using the 5 elements – wood, water, metal, fire, earth – to create balance in a space and to allow the flow of energy or chi. Each element needs to be represented in every room but not equally in every room.

Here is a quick break down of all the elements and how they can be represented within a space:

Elements Colors Objects to Use Shape
Water Blue




Wavy lines
Wood Green Wood Furniture

Hard wood floors


Vertical growing plants

Fire Red Candles


Earth Yellow





Metal White







The decorating in each room should contain all of the five elements; the Feng Shui elements do not need to be represented equally. A small grouping of the 5 elements can be used to balance a room.

Some objects combine several different energies together. For example, a white candle with a vine pattern represents a Fire object with a Wood shape and a Metal color.  The candle represents three elements. To make the candle represent all 5 elements it could be set on a blue (Water element) ceramic object (Earth element). If a green plant (Wood element) was placed in a blue (Water element) ceramic planter (Earthelement), three of the elements are already implemented and then all you need to complete your room’s Feng Shui balance would be a white candle (Fire element) on a silver tray (Metal Element).

To create balance and harmony in a home by Feng Shui standards, the perfect Realtor closing gift would be a white candle with a vine pattern set on a blue ceramic tray. The goal of Feng Shui is to make sure chi or energy flows smoothly and that all inhabitant of the home are prosperous and have good health.  If this is what the above gift represents, then it is the perfect thank you or closing gift.
