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

The advent of the holiday season and season of giving are nearly always a stressful time of year and adding moving to a new residence in El Paso in the mix makes it even crazier and anxious, yet it still happens. Selecting just the right gift item for friends or family is often hard enough alone and a lot more complex when you consider these recipients do not truly want (or need) additional "stuff" to bring along when moving to a new place.

So, in this light, here are some super functional, fairly festive and innovative present ideas for those on our list who might be moving to El Paso in the New Year.

Offer A Professional Mover

Regardless of whether they are moving around the corner or across the country, everyone understands what a hassle it is to pack, load up and relocate. Consider providing them with a gift certificate for or some money toward using a professional mover in El Paso to accomplish these services for them. Picture the look on their face(s) once they realize these tasks shall be taken care of by a knowledgeable moving company.

Send a Storage Space

If you are downsizing, they may want non-permanent storage room when they're getting settled into a smaller sized space. There might be various other reasons why this acquisition of short-term storage might be helpful for those who are moving to El Paso due to a new job opportunity so they might not even have a place to reside yet. If several of these exceptional conditions are present, you might like to think about giving the gift of extra space to those who may require this on a short-term basis. This area could be as basic as supplying a nook of the basement or garage to hold items free of charge in the short term.

Gift Ideas for a New Locale

Gift certificates are a popular present where recipients either pick whatever they want to purchase or participate in a pre-chosen spot or event to enjoy. Particularly for people who find themselves moving to a new city or perhaps a spot in a different state, these gift cards could be selected especially to enjoy a new, community arena, site or function when purchasing:


  • A day at the zoo or theme park in the community
  • Activities happening in the near future for them to go to giving them an escape after moving (look for event calendars in their particular town)
  • A gift certificate to a popular chain or well-loved nearby eating place (look at online review sites for options)
  • Massage sessions or possibly a spa day for relaxation soon after relocation


There are also a variety of subscriptions to think about including those to a nearby health club, museum, Performing Arts Center, Golf or Country Club. Take into consideration what they delight in and this present could be a special strategy to welcome them to this new community without being there yourself.

Wrap Up A number of Moving Supplies

There is a variety of gifts to bear in mind in the moving supply classification with cartons, tape, markers, packaging materials to safeguard sensitive belongings from harm, etc. Bear in mind to think a little "out of the box" in terms of making these selections. While rolls of tape can be a fantastic selection, make sure to get one of those hand-held tape dispenser to really accelerate the task. Additionally, there are items which are required when moving such as shelf liners, cleaning products, along with a wide range of paper items, dishes, TP, towels, and also disposable utensils - the list keeps going.

Be sure and "pack up" these presents and wrap them in a festive fashion or make them appear like a bundle destined for the new house. Other choices include things like presents with their new street address printed on such as a custom-made, decorative sign to embellish the door or landscape of the new home.

A Nice Non-Seasonal Gift

When moving after the holidays have passed, you can still go ahead and give your friends or family a considerate gift on or prior to moving day. A care package could include essentials for arrival to their new location that won't have them running around opening boxes. This package may contain frequently forgotten about items such as toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized stuff like shampoo, a non-perishable breakfast, snack foods or edible items.

Any one of these gifts are not only sensible, but they're extremely thoughtful which makes them a great present for our relatives who are moving to El Paso prior to, soon after or during the season.
