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

The advent of the holidays and period of giving are nearly always a stressful time of year and incorporating moving to a new residence in Oklahoma City into the mix can make it even crazier and chaotic, but it still happens. Choosing the perfect present for friends or family can often be difficult enough on its own and much more complicated when you consider these recipients do not really want (or need) additional "stuff" to pack when relocating to a new location.

Therefore, in this light, here are a few very sensible, relatively festive and thoughtful gift ideas for anyone on our list who'll be moving to Oklahoma City in 2020.

Offer A Professional Mover

No matter whether they may be moving around the corner or maybe around the globe, everyone understands what a hassle it can be to pack, load up and relocate. Think about getting them a gift certificate for or some funds toward hiring a professional mover in Oklahoma City to carry out these services for them. Imagine the look on their face(s) after they comprehend these tasks will be managed by a knowledgeable moving company.

Send a Storage Space

If you're downsizing, they may want temporary storage space when they're getting established in a smaller sized place. There may be other reasons why this acquisition of non permanent storage may be beneficial for those who are moving to Oklahoma City as a result of new job opportunity so they may not even have a location to live yet. If several of these particular circumstances are present, you might want to take into account offering the gift of additional space to those who may require this on a short-term basis. This space could be as simple as offering a part of your basement or garage to hold belongings without charge temporarily.

Gift Ideas for a New Locale

Gift certificates are a popular present where recipients perhaps choose whatever they wish to buy or experience a pre-chosen place or event to enjoy. Especially for people who find themselves moving to a new area or even a location in a different state, these prepaid cards may be selected particularly to partake in a new, local stadium, place or occasion when selecting:


  • A trip to the zoo or theme park nearby
  • Activities happening in the near future for them to attend providing them with an escape following moving (search for event calendars in their respective area)
  • A gift card to a popular chain or well-loved nearby bistro (check online review sites for possibilities)
  • Massage sessions or a spa day for relaxation after relocation


There are also a variety of memberships to consider including those to an area gym, art gallery, Performing Arts Center, Golf or Country Club. Think about the things they delight in and this present might be a fantastic strategy to welcome them to this new area without being there yourself.

Wrap Up A few Moving Supplies

You will find a variety of presents to take into consideration in the moving supply category with boxes, tape, markers, packaging supplies to safeguard sensitive things from harm, etc. But don't forget to think a little "out of the box" in terms of making these choices. While rolls of tape can be an excellent selection, make sure to pick up a hand-held tape dispenser to really speed up the process. There are also items that are required when relocating like shelf inserts, cleaning products, plus a wide variety of paper products, dishes, toilet paper, bath towels, as well as throw away utensils - the list continues on.

Remember to "pack up" these gifts and wrap them in a fun way or make them appear like a box destined for the new house. Other choices incorporate gifts with their new street address printed on such as a customized, ornamental sign to decorate the door or yard of their updated home.

A Thoughtful Non-Seasonal Gift

When relocating right after the holidays have passed, you could still proceed to give your friends or family a clever present on or before moving day. A care package might include necessities for arrival at their new residence that won't have them scrambling around opening boxes. This container could hold frequently overlooked things like toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized things like shampoo and conditioner, a non-perishable morning meal, snacks or edible items.

Any of these presents aren't only sensible, but they're incredibly clever making them a great gift for our friends and family who are moving to Oklahoma City prior to, after or throughout the season.
