Do Tenants and Landlords buy Christmas gifts?
When shopping for Christmas presents do tenants and landlords get each other presents? It might seem a little odd but there are many reasons why buying a present could be a good idea…
Landlords buying tenants gifts
Whether or not to give your tenant a Christmas present seems to divide private landlords. Although it might seem like a simple decision many landlords are unsure what to do. And, if they do decide to gift, what would be an appropriate present? When you think about gifts for your tenant you shouldn’t consider anything extravagant as this could be deemed as misleading. They say a little goes a long way and a gift shows appreciation for keeping their property in good condition. When choosing a gift, the most popular choices are wine, chocolates, and even money off rent. Saying thank you and giving a little something can help hold onto good tenants and maintain goodwill.

For some tenants buying their landlord’s gift at Christmas is a nice gesture to keep relationships positive and happy. Perhaps your landlord has gone over and above during the pandemic, and you would like to acknowledge this at Christmas. A heartfelt gesture to your landlord, to show you are grateful for the service they are providing you – could make their day. Something such as a box of chocolates or a bunch of flowers or even a houseplant is a good Christmas present idea. Nothing too expensive or extravagant, just a nice token of appreciation.
In summary, Christmas can be a stressful time for landlords and tenants and this last year has certainly been testing for us all. If you feel your landlord or tenant would appreciate a gift, then add it to your Christmas shopping list.
