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

The advent of the holidays and season of giving are almost always a demanding time of year and adding moving to a new home in Tulsa into the array causes it to be even crazier and disorderly, but it still happens. Selecting just the right present for family or friends can often be difficult enough by itself and even more challenging when considering these recipients tend not to truly want (or need) more "stuff" to pack when relocating to a new area.

So, in this light, here are some very practical, somewhat festive and thoughtful gift suggestions for anyone on our list who will be moving to Tulsa in 2020.

Offer A Professional Mover

No matter whether they're moving around the corner or a fair distance, everyone knows what a inconvenience it is to pack, load up and relocate. Think about getting them a gift certificate for or some cash toward hiring a professional mover in Tulsa to complete these services for them. Imagine the look on their face(s) when they realize these chores shall be managed by a knowledgeable moving company.

Send a Storage Space

If you are downsizing, they may want short-term storage room while they're getting settled in a smaller sized place. There may be various other reasons why this acquisition of temporary storage could be beneficial for those who find themselves moving to Tulsa due to a new job opportunity so they would possibly not even have a location to reside yet. In case several of these special situations exist, you may want to contemplate giving the gift of extra space to those that may need this on a short-term basis. This space could be as basic as presenting a part of your basement or garage to hold things free of charge briefly.

Gift Ideas for a New Area

Gift certificates can be a typical gift where recipients either choose the things they want to purchase or experience a pre-chosen location or event to experience. Particularly for people who find themselves moving to a strange area or possibly a spot in a different state, these gift cards could be chosen especially to partake in a new, nearby stadium, spot or event when buying:


  • A day at the zoo or amusement park in the area
  • Activities occurring in the near future for them to go to getting them an escape after moving (look for calendars in their respective city)
  • A gift certificate to a favorite chain or well-loved local cafe (look at online review sites for possibilities)
  • Massage sessions or possibly a spa day for relaxation after relocation


There are also different types of subscriptions to consider such as those to an area fitness center, art gallery, Performing Arts Center, Tennis or Country Club. Consider the things they delight in and this present can be a fantastic strategy to welcome them to this new community without being there yourself.

Wrap Up A few Moving Supplies

There's a variety of gifts to bear in mind in the moving supply category with boxes, tape, markers, packing products to guard sensitive items from harm, and so on. Bear in mind to think slightly "out of the box" with regards to making these choices. While rolls of tape will be an excellent pick, make sure you get a hand-held rollers to really speed up the process. There are also things which are necessary when moving like shelf inserts, cleaning products, along with a wide range of paper items, dishes, TP, towels, and disposable utensils - the list goes on.

Remember to "pack up" these gifts and wrap them in a fun manner or make them appear as a bundle destined for the new location. Other options include presents with their new address printed on such as a customized, decorative sign to adorn the door or landscape of the new house.

A Thoughtful Non-Seasonal Gift

If relocating right after the holidays have passed, you might still go ahead and give your friends or family a helpful present on or just before moving day. A care package may include essentials for arrival at their new residence that will not have them rushing around opening cartons. This package could contain commonly forgotten about items like toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized items like shampoo and conditioner, a non-perishable morning meal, snack foods or edible items.

These presents are not only sensible, but they're incredibly helpful which makes them a perfect gift for our loved ones who are moving to Tulsa prior to, following or over the season.
