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

The coming of the holidays and season of giving are almost always a hectic time of year and including moving to a new home in El Paso to the mix can make it even crazier and disorderly, but it still happens. Selecting the ideal gift for family or friends is usually hard enough on its own and a lot more challenging if you think about these recipients do not truly want (or need) additional "stuff" to pack when relocating to a new area.

Thus, in this light, here are some extremely functional, relatively festive and thoughtful present ideas for those on our list who'll be moving to El Paso in 2020.

Present A Professional Mover

Whether they may be moving around the corner or perhaps a fair distance, we all know what a hassle it really is to pack, load up and relocate. Think about giving them a gift certificate for or some money toward getting a professional mover in El Paso to carry out these services for them. Think about the look on their face(s) after they comprehend these jobs shall be covered by a knowledgeable moving company.

Send a Storage Space

If you're downsizing, they could need non-permanent storage space when they're getting settled into a scaled-down area. There might be other reasons why this acquisition of temporary storage could be beneficial for those people who are moving to El Paso as a result of new job opportunity so they may not even have a spot to stay yet. If a few of these exceptional scenarios exist, you might like to contemplate offering the gift of additional space to those that may need this on a short-term basis. This area may be as straightforward as offering a corner of your basement or garage to hold belongings at no cost in the short term.

Presents for a New Area

Gift cards are a common gift where recipients possibly choose the things they would like to purchase or experience a pre-chosen place or happening to experience. Especially for those people who are moving to a new town or possibly a spot in a different state, these prepaid cards may be chosen particularly to partake in a new, local stadium, place or occasion when selecting:


  • A visit to the zoo or amusement park nearby
  • Activities occurring soon for them to go to getting them a break following moving (seek out calendars in their specific area)
  • A gift card to a popular chain or well-loved neighborhood bistro (check online review sites for choices)
  • Massage sessions or possibly a spa day for relaxation after moving


There are various kinds of memberships to think about for example those to an area gym, museum, Performing Arts Center, Tennis or Country Club. Consider what they take pleasure in and this gift could be a fantastic way to welcome them to this new place without being there yourself.

Wrap Up A number of Moving Materials

You will find a plethora of gifts to bear in mind in the moving supply category with containers, tape, markers, packing materials to shield delicate belongings from damage, and so forth. Bear in mind to think a little "out of the box" when it comes to making these selections. Although rolls of tape are a fantastic choice, make sure to grab one of those hand-held tape dispenser to really quicken the task. Additionally, there are things which are important when moving such as shelf liners, cleaning supplies, and a wide range of paper products, dishes, toilet paper, towels, as well as throw away utensils - the list continues on.

Be sure to "pack up" these presents and wrap them in a holiday manner or make them appear as a box destined for the new location. Additional options include presents with their new home address printed on such as a custom-made, ornamental sign to decorate the door or lawn of their new home.

A Nice Non-Seasonal Gift

If moving after the holidays have passed, you can still proceed to offer your friends or family a considerate gift on or before moving day. A care package could include fundamentals for arrival to their new location that will not have them scrambling around opening boxes. This package may contain regularly overlooked things like toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized stuff like shampoo, a non-perishable morning meal, snack foods or edible items.

Any one of these gifts are not only useful, but they're extremely thoughtful which makes them a great gift for our relatives who are moving to El Paso just before, soon after or over the season.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
