Practical Gift Ideas for Friends or Family Who are Moving to Killeen in 2020

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

The coming of the holidays and period of giving are nearly always a hectic period and including moving to a new house in Killeen into the array causes it to be even crazier and disorderly, but it still happens. Finding just the right gift item for family or friends is usually difficult enough alone and much more challenging if you think about these recipients don't really want (or need) additional "stuff" to pack when moving to a new place.

Thus, in this light, here are some super practical, relatively festive and clever present ideas for anyone on our list who'll be moving to Killeen in 2020.

Gift A Professional Mover

Regardless of whether they're moving around the corner or perhaps around the globe, we all know what a inconvenience it is to pack, load up and relocate. Consider providing them with a gift certificate for or some cash toward getting a professional mover in Killeen to carry out these services for them. Think about the look on their face(s) after they comprehend these tasks will be managed by a knowledgeable moving company.

Send a Storage Space

If you are downsizing, they may want short-term storage room when they are getting established in a smaller place. There might be other reasons why this acquisition of non permanent storage might be good for those who are moving to Killeen because of a new job opportunity and they might not even have a location to live yet. In case some of these exceptional conditions are present, you may want to take into account offering the gift of extra space to those who might need this on a short-term basis. This area could be as simple as providing a corner of the basement or garage to store items without charge in the short term.

Giving Gifts for a New Location

Gift certificates are a common present where recipients either select what they wish to buy or experience a pre-chosen place or event to enjoy. Especially for those people who are moving to an unfamiliar area or perhaps a spot in another state, these gift cards may be selected specifically to enjoy a new, local stadium, site or occasion when choosing:


  • A visit to the zoo or theme park nearby
  • Activities happening soon for them to attend giving them a break after moving (look for event calendars in their specific town)
  • A gift card to a favorite chain or well-loved local bistro (look at online review sites for choices)
  • Massage sessions or perhaps a spa day for relaxing after moving


There are different types of subscriptions to consider such as those to a nearby health club, art gallery, Performing Arts Center, Tennis or Country Club. Think about what they delight in and this present might be a unique approach to welcome them to this new community without being there yourself.

Wrap Up Several Moving Materials

There is a plethora of presents to take into consideration in the moving supply category with cartons, tape, markers, packing supplies to safeguard fragile things from harm, and so forth. But don't forget to think a little bit "out of the box" with regards to making these choices. Whilst rolls of tape will be a great pick, make sure you grab one of those hand-held rollers to really quicken the job. There are also items which are important when moving such as shelf liners, cleaning supplies, plus a wide array of paper products, dishes, toilet paper, towels, as well as disposable utensils - the list keeps going.

Be sure to "pack up" these gifts and wrap them in a festive manner or make them appear as a package destined for a new house. Additional options include items with their new street address printed on for instance a custom-made, decorative sign to adorn the door or lawn of their new home.

A Thoughtful Non-Seasonal Gift

If relocating following the holidays have passed, you might still step up to the plate to offer your friends or loved ones a helpful gift on or just before moving day. A care package may include essentials for arrival to their new residence which won't have them running around opening boxes. This container may hold often overlooked things 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.

Any one of these gifts aren't just sensible, but they are incredibly thoughtful which makes them an ideal present for our friends and family who are moving to Killeen prior to, soon after or during the season.

Best. Move. Ever!
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.
