Practical Gift Ideas for Friends or Family Who are Moving to Wichita Falls in 2020

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

The arrival of the holiday season and season of giving tend to be a demanding period and including moving to a new house in Wichita Falls to the mix can make it even crazier and disorderly, but it still occurs. Locating the perfect present for family or friends can often be difficult enough alone and even more challenging when considering these recipients tend not to truly want (or need) extra "stuff" to bring along when moving to a new location.

Therefore, in this light, here are a few very sensible, fairly festive and thoughtful gift ideas for the people on our list who will be moving to Wichita Falls in 2020.

Present A Professional Mover

Regardless of whether they may be moving around the corner or around the globe, we all know what a bother it is to pack, load up and move. Think about getting them a gift certificate for or some funds toward getting a professional mover in Wichita Falls to carry out these services for them. Think about the look on their face(s) once they realize these tasks will be taken care of by a knowledgeable moving company.

Provide a Storage Space

If you're downsizing, they might need non-permanent storage room while they're getting settled into a smaller sized space. There might be additional reasons why this acquisition of temporary storage may be helpful for those people who are moving to Wichita Falls due to a new job opportunity and they might not even have a spot to stay yet. If several of these exceptional situations exist, you might like to think about presenting the gift of extra space to those which may require this on a short-term basis. This area may be as straightforward as offering a corner of your basement or garage to store things at no cost in the short term.

Gift Ideas for a New Locale

Gift cards can be a typical present where recipients possibly select what they wish to buy or experience a pre-chosen place or event to experience. Particularly for those people who are moving to a strange area or even a place in a different state, these gift cards could be chosen particularly to enjoy a new, nearby arena, site or function when selecting:


  • A trip to the zoo or theme park nearby
  • Activities occurring in the near future for them to go to providing them with a break following moving (seek out event calendars in their specific town)
  • A gift certificate to a favorite chain or well-loved nearby cafe (check online review sites for options)
  • Massage sessions or possibly a spa day for relaxation following relocation


There are also different types of subscriptions to bear in mind such as those to a nearby health club, art gallery, Performing Arts Center, Golf or Country Club. Consider the things they delight in and this gift can be a fantastic approach to welcome them to this new community without being there yourself.

Wrap Up Some Moving Supplies

There's a plethora of presents to bear in mind in the moving supply grouping with cartons, tape, markers, packing materials to protect delicate things from damage, etc. Bear in mind to think a little bit "out of the box" when it comes to making these choices. Whilst rolls of tape are an excellent choice, be sure to get one of those hand-held tape dispenser to really quicken the job. There's also products which are necessary when moving including shelf inserts, cleaning products, along with a wide variety of paper goods, plates, toilet paper, towels, and throw away utensils - the list continues on.

Be sure to "pack up" these presents and wrap them in a fun manner or make them appear like a package headed for a new home. Additional options include presents with their new street address printed on like a customized, ornamental sign to embellish the door or landscape of the new home.

A Thoughtful Non-Seasonal Present

When moving after the holidays have passed, you could still proceed to offer your friends or family a clever present on or just before moving day. A care package could include necessities for arrival to their new residence that will not have them rushing around opening boxes. This container might contain frequently forgotten about things including toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized stuff like shampoo, a non-perishable morning meal, snack food items or edible items.

All of these gift ideas are not only useful, but they're extremely thoughtful which makes them a perfect present for our friends and family who are moving to Wichita Falls before, after or over the season.
