The arrival of the holidays and period of giving tend to be a demanding time of year and incorporating moving to a new house in Oklahoma City in the array makes it even crazier and anxious, yet it still takes place. Locating the ideal gift item for family or friends can often be difficult enough on its own and a lot more challenging when you consider these recipients do not really want (or need) extra "stuff" to bring along when relocating to a new location.
So, in this light, here are a few super sensible, somewhat festive and innovative gift suggestions for those on our list who will be moving to Oklahoma City in the New Year.
Present A Professional Mover
Whether they may be moving around the corner or across the country, everyone knows what a hassle it is to pack, load up and move. Think about giving them a gift certificate for or some funds toward getting a professional mover in Oklahoma City to complete these services for them. Picture the look on their face(s) when they understand these tasks shall be managed by a knowledgeable moving company.
Provide a Storage Space
For people who are downsizing, they might want non-permanent storage room when they are getting established into a smaller area. There may be additional reasons why this acquisition of temporary storage could be beneficial for those who find themselves moving to Oklahoma City as a result of new job opportunity so they may not even have a location to reside yet. If a few of these particular circumstances exist, you may want to think about presenting the gift of extra space to those that may require this on a short-term basis. This place may be as straightforward as offering a nook of your basement or garage to keep things without charge in the short term.
Presents for a New Locale
Gift cards are a popular gift where recipients either choose what they want to buy or experience a pre-chosen location or event to enjoy. Especially for people who find themselves moving to a new town or possibly a spot in a different state, these gift cards could be chosen specifically to enjoy a new, local arena, place or function when choosing:
- A trip to the zoo or theme park in the community
- Activities taking place soon for them to attend providing them with an escape soon after moving (search for calendars in their particular area)
- A gift certificate to a popular chain or well-loved local cafe (look at online review sites for choices)
- Massage sessions or perhaps a spa day for unwinding following moving
There are various kinds of memberships to bear in mind such as those to a nearby health club, museum, Performing Arts Center, Golf or Country Club. Consider whatever they enjoy and this gift might be a fantastic way to welcome them to this new area without being there yourself.
Wrap Up Some Moving Materials
There is a plethora of presents to bear in mind in the moving supply category with boxes, tape, markers, packing materials to protect sensitive things from damage, and so forth. Bear in mind to think slightly "out of the box" in terms of making these choices. Although rolls of tape will be a fantastic pick, make sure you pick up a hand-held tape dispenser to really accelerate the process. Additionally, there are items that are important when relocating such as shelf inserts, cleaning products, along with a wide array of paper items, dishes, toilet paper, towels, and disposable utensils - the list goes on.
Be sure and "pack up" these presents and wrap them in a festive manner or make them appear as a package headed for the new house. Additional options incorporate items with their new home address printed on for instance a personalized, ornamental sign to adorn the door or lawn of their new home.
A Thoughtful Non-Seasonal Present
If relocating right after the holidays have passed, you might still step up to the plate to give your friends or family members a clever gift on or before moving day. A care package may include essentials for arrival at their new house which won't have them running around opening boxes. This box might contain often forgotten about items including toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized items like shampoo, a non-perishable breakfast, snack foods or edible items.
Any one of these gifts aren't only practical, but they're also very thoughtful making them a great gift for our friends and family who are moving to Oklahoma City before, soon after or throughout the season.
