Best Gifts for People Who Are Moving to Oklahoma City

By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Gifts for People who are MovingWorried concerning exactly what to give that really good pal who is in the middle of packing up to move to Oklahoma City? Holiday gift buying is hard enough, but, if you have got someone on your list who's perhaps about to or has recently concluded moving, you've got a couple of extra things to consider over and above if they are going to like it. You do not wish to give something that is going to make their move even more difficult, therefore no bulky, delicate things which must be packed. And in case they are planning to be traveling by car to the new residence, you do not want to give anything alive, such as herbs and fresh flowers or even critters.

Think about giving them a subscription to a meal kit service. Should they get going making use of it right after the move, they will have additional time for unpacking since they are not going to have to think about fixing food or going to the supermarket. Or, give gift certificates to dining establishments so they will not need to prepare dinners at all.

Since moving consists of quite a few little costs while you set up a new home, consider gift certificates to home designing or possibly hardware retailers. Doing this it's possible to help defray a handful of the expenses, rather than buying a housewarming gift.

Or go custom-made. Tailored door mats, house numbers or signs make the perfect keepsake idea, particularly for newlyweds. What's more, you may have it sent to the new home soon once they move to Oklahoma City.

You may want to make your own gift certificates, offering to help pack, keep an eye on the children or perhaps pets, or help out in the new house.

For those moving lengthy distances, provide something that reminds them both of you and the place they are leaving. No matter whether that is a framed poster of the city’s renowned things of interest, or a framed photograph of a group of you at one of those locations, it will be a unique reminder that you are thinking of them.

In the event that they have already relocated, you could send them a flavor of home. Lots of locations have well-known things to eat; improvements in transporting and delivery signify that your favorite pizza, cheese steaks or other nearby treats can be shipped, able to be savored. Additional options are made up of coffees from community roasters, or food items from neighborhood shops which they won't come across in their new area.

Most likely the ideal present for friends moving away is to offer to host them so they can come back for a visit. If you're able to, airline tickets are a splendid present idea, however, if not, come up with a gift voucher for a few days stay, an evening meal at their chosen location, and various other things you know they may miss.

Regardless of what you choose to give, your friends and family who have moved to Oklahoma City (or are going to be moving before long) are going to understand that you love them and will miss them, but that you will stay good friends. And that is worth more than the present itself.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
