Pearls for the Soul book...a collection of over 800 positive and uplifting sayings that can change the way your day and your life is going. Best all-around gift to give and receive. Discounted to quantity costing $2-3 dollar for a $12.95 book. It is a proven keepsake which means all involved are remembered....I give them out liberally and have had requests for more

The BEST is the closed transaction.

 I don't really have a "best" closing gift. We've given out gift certificates to various restaurants and that's always "good" but not the "best".

Now that I'm pressing myself to answer the question - the most rewarding and the best closing gift is making a donation in the clients name to a charity of their choice. It's amazing how much "credit" you will get from both the client and the organization (even though the donation is in the client's name - you're handing over the check - you get a lot of juice).

You know only gifts $20 or less are tax deductible.

We've given select clients closing gifts = $100 value but it was only because we wanted to.

Some loan brokers are throwing a listing commission on the house.

Already made dough from loan so why get paid twice?

If you know your clients well, every closing gift is the best for them, because it shows you paid attention  to their likes, hobbies or favorite______.

I would certainly like to know the responses you get. I struggle with this one frequently. Try to make it personal to each client. Often gift cards for Home Depot or Lowes or something of their choice.
