8 Holiday Gift Ideas for Real Estate Appraisers

Holiday Gift Ideas for Real Estate AppraisersDo you have a property appraiser in your family or circle of friends? When you’re out shopping for holiday gifts this year, keep in mind that real estate appraisers typically work long hours and spend lots of time in the car. Many of them are self-employed or own their own businesses. And most have a genuine passion for real estate. That said, here are our favorite holiday gift ideas for appraisers.

For the appraiser who loves tech

The DJI Tello quadcopter drone is the Wirecutter’s pick for the best drone under $100. Drones are the hottest thing right now in appraisal technology. They enable property appraisers to view and photograph large, inaccessible parcels of land, building rooftops, and more. Plus, they’re super fun to fly.

A personalized business card holder. Any appraiser who is self-employed or owns their own company should always have business cards on hand for networking. With this customized gift, they can hand out their cards in style.
