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

The advent of the holiday season and season of giving are almost always a hectic time of year and incorporating moving to a new residence in Dallas in the array can make it even crazier and chaotic, yet it still happens. Choosing the ideal present for friends or family can often be difficult enough by itself and much more challenging when you consider these recipients don't truly want (or need) additional "stuff" to pack when moving to a new area.

So, in this light, here are some extremely practical, fairly festive and clever gift ideas for anyone on our list who might be moving to Dallas in 2020.

Offer A Professional Mover

Whether they're moving around the corner or perhaps a fair distance, everybody knows what a inconvenience it really is to pack, load up and relocate. Consider providing them with a gift certificate for or some funds toward using a professional mover in Dallas to accomplish these services for them. Picture the look on their face(s) after they realize these tasks shall be taken care of by a knowledgeable moving company.

Send a Storage Space

If you are downsizing, they might require short-term storage space while they're getting established into a scaled-down area. There could be various other reasons why this acquisition of short-term storage may be beneficial for those who find themselves moving to Dallas due to a new job opportunity so they may not even have a location to live yet. In case several of these particular circumstances are present, you might like to think about giving the gift of extra space to those that might need this on a short-term basis. This area may be as basic as presenting a nook of the basement or garage to keep items without charge in the short term.

Gift Ideas for a New Area

Gift certificates are a typical gift where recipients possibly select whatever they would like to purchase or experience a pre-chosen spot or event to experience. Especially for those people who are moving to a strange place or possibly a location in a different state, these gift cards may be picked especially to partake in a new, local stadium, site or happening when choosing:


  • A day at the zoo or theme park in the community
  • Activities happening in the near future for them to attend providing them a break after moving (search for calendars in their respective town)
  • A gift certificate to a favorite chain or well-loved local restaurant (look at online review sites for possibilities)
  • Massage sessions or a spa day for relaxing after moving


There are also a variety of memberships to consider including those to a nearby fitness center, museum, Performing Arts Center, Tennis or Country Club. Take into consideration what they enjoy and this gift might be a fantastic approach to welcome them to this new place without being there yourself.

Wrap Up A few Moving Materials

You will find a variety of presents to bear in mind in the moving supply grouping with cartons, tape, markers, packing materials to guard sensitive belongings from damage, and so on. But remember to think a little bit "out of the box" in terms of making these selections. Although rolls of tape will be a fantastic choice, make sure to grab one of those hand-held tape dispenser to really speed up the process. Additionally, there are items which are important when moving like shelf liners, cleaning products, plus a wide range of paper goods, dishes, TP, bath towels, and also disposable utensils - the list goes on.

Be sure to "pack up" these gifts and wrap them in a fun way or make them appear as a box destined for the new location. Other options incorporate gifts with their new home address printed on for instance a customized, decorative sign to decorate the door or lawn of their updated house.

A Thoughtful Non-Seasonal Present

If relocating following the holidays have passed, you might still proceed to offer your friends or family a thoughtful gift on or before moving day. A care package could include essentials for arrival to their new residence that will not have them rushing around opening cartons. This container could contain regularly forgotten about things such as toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized items like shampoo, a non-perishable breakfast, snack food items or edible items.

Any one of these gift ideas aren't only practical, but they're also very clever which makes them an ideal present for our friends and family who are moving to Dallas before, soon after or during the season.
