The arrival of the holiday season and season of giving are almost always a demanding period and incorporating moving to a new residence in Tulsa into the mix can make it even crazier and chaotic, yet it still occurs. Selecting the perfect gift for family or friends can often be difficult enough on its own and even more complex when you consider these recipients do not really want (or need) additional "stuff" to bring along when relocating to a new place.
Therefore, in this light, here are several extremely practical, somewhat festive and innovative gift ideas for anyone on our list who'll be moving to Tulsa in 2020.
Present A Professional Mover
Whether they are moving around the corner or across the country, everybody knows what a bother it really is to pack, load up and relocate. Consider providing them a gift certificate for or some cash toward hiring a professional mover in Tulsa to accomplish these services for them. Picture the look on their face(s) after they realize these chores will be taken care of by a knowledgeable moving company.
Provide a Storage Space
If you're downsizing, they may want temporary storage space while they're getting settled in a scaled-down area. There may be additional reasons why this acquisition of short-term storage may be beneficial for those people who are moving to Tulsa due to a new job opportunity so they might not even have a location to reside yet. In case some of these particular situations are present, you might like to think about giving the gift of additional space to those which might need this on a short-term basis. This place could be as straightforward as providing a part of your basement or garage to hold items at no cost in the short term.
Gift Ideas for a New Location
Gift certificates are a popular gift where recipients perhaps select the things they wish to purchase or participate in a pre-chosen spot or function to experience. Particularly for people who find themselves moving to a new town or possibly a spot in another state, these gift cards could be picked especially to experience a new, nearby stadium, spot or event when choosing:
- A trip to the zoo or theme park in the community
- Events taking place soon for them to attend providing them a break after moving (look for event calendars in their specific city)
- A gift certificate to a favorite chain or well-loved local restaurant (check online review sites for choices)
- Massage sessions or a spa day for relaxation soon after relocation
There are different types of subscriptions to consider including those to a nearby health club, art gallery, Performing Arts Center, Tennis or Country Club. Take into consideration what they enjoy and this gift might be a unique approach to welcome them to this new community without being there yourself.
Wrap Up A few Moving Supplies
You will find a plethora of gifts to bear in mind in the moving supply category with bins, tape, markers, packing products to guard fragile belongings from damage, and so on. But don't forget to think slightly "out of the box" when it comes to making these choices. Whilst rolls of tape can be a fantastic pick, make sure you pick up one of those hand-held tape dispenser to really accelerate the process. Additionally, there are products which are important when relocating including shelf liners, cleaning products, along with a wide range of paper items, dishes, toilet paper, bathroom towels, and disposable utensils - the list continues on.
Be sure and "pack up" these presents and wrap them in a holiday manner or make them appear as a bundle headed for the new house. Other choices include things like items with their new home address printed on for instance a customized, ornamental sign to adorn the door or yard of the updated residence.
A Nice Non-Seasonal Present
When relocating after the holidays have passed, you can still step up to the plate to give your friends or loved ones a considerate gift on or just before moving day. A care package could include necessities for arrival at their new location that will not have them rushing around opening boxes. This box might contain often forgotten about items such as toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized stuff like shampoo and conditioner, a non-perishable morning meal, snack food items or edible items.
All of these gift ideas aren't only practical, but they are incredibly helpful causing them to be a perfect present for our relatives who are moving to Tulsa prior to, after or throughout the season.
