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 coming of the holiday season and season of giving tend to be a stressful period and including moving to a new house in Wichita Falls into the mix can make it even crazier and chaotic, but it still takes place. Selecting just the right gift 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 place.

Therefore, in this light, here are some 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

Whether they may be moving around the corner or across the country, everybody knows what a bother it really is to pack, load up and move. Consider providing them with a gift certificate for or some funds toward hiring a professional mover in Wichita Falls to carry out these services for them. Imagine the look on their face(s) once they understand these tasks will be taken care of by a knowledgeable moving company.

Provide a Storage Space

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

Giving Gifts for a New Location

Gift cards can be a typical present where recipients either choose the things they would like to buy or experience a pre-chosen place or event to experience. Particularly for those who are moving to a strange area or even a place in a different state, these gift cards may 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 getting them a break after moving (seek out event calendars in their specific city)
  • A gift certificate to a favorite chain or well-loved nearby cafe (check out online review sites for options)
  • Massage sessions or possibly a spa day for relaxation after relocation

 

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

Wrap Up Some Moving Supplies

There is a plethora of presents to bear in mind in the moving supply grouping with cartons, tape, markers, packing materials to protect delicate items from damage, etc. Bear in mind to think slightly "out of the box" with regards to making these choices. While rolls of tape are a great 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, and a wide variety of paper goods, plates, toilet paper, towels, as well as throw away utensils - the list goes on.

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

A Gracious Non-Seasonal Present

When moving after the holidays have passed, you can still proceed to offer your friends or loved ones a helpful 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 package might contain frequently forgotten about things like 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 aren't just useful, but they're also very thoughtful which makes them an ideal present for our friends and family who are moving to Wichita Falls just before, following or over the season.
