What Christmas present should I get for my friends who are selling their house?

What Christmas present should I get for my friends who are selling their house?

If you’re trying to find a present for a friend who’s selling their house, you might well be struggling. Let’s be frank: even the best clock/picture/aftershave/jar of marmalade quickly turns into clutter for someone who is about to put their house on the market.

So, if you’re not going to give the sort of present you can wrap up, what can you give? Cooking Christmas dinner for your house-selling friends and saving them a world of stress is a good start. Here are some other ideas, all available through Dockleys:

A check-up with the house doctor

A house doctor is someone who can come and look at your house with a professional eye, and help a seller to decide what jobs and repairs to prioritise to ensure the house sells for the right price. A session with a house doctor could ultimately help your friends to sell for a better price, so give them a gift that keeps on giving!


In this world of ever-increasing junk, some of the naturally organised among us have set up as professional declutterers! Perhaps your friends would appreciate some help straightening the house before they sell it (it will make the packing easier too), so why not book them a session with a professional organiser?


An increasing number of cleaning companies offer one-off cleans – perfect for keeping the house viewing-ready even when the seller is dividing their time between Hamleys and Christmas parties. Give the gift of a clean house – solve a problem rather than creating one, and leave your friends feeling calm and ready to present their home in the best possible light.

Declutter an East London or Hertfordshire property before it goes on the market

In addition to the standard estate agent services you’d expect, Dockleys can provide all these home improvement services and more to help people in East London, Hertfordshire and Essex sell their houses. Whether you need decluttering, cleaning or house doctor services for friends or for yourself, we can help.

A house-organising session might be an unusual Christmas present, but it’s sure to help your friends with their move! Just give me, Adam Dockley, a call today on 020 3633 4440 to get started.

Merry Christmas!
