The coming of the holidays and season of giving are almost always a hectic period and including moving to a new residence in Killeen to the mix can make it even crazier and chaotic, but it still happens. Selecting the ideal gift for family or friends is usually hard enough by itself 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 a few extremely functional, relatively festive and thoughtful gift ideas for anyone on our list who will be moving to Killeen in 2020.

Present A Professional Mover

Whether they may be moving around the corner or perhaps a fair distance, everybody knows what a inconvenience it is to pack, load up and relocate. Consider giving them a gift certificate for or some money toward getting a professional mover in Killeen to carry out these services for them. Imagine the look on their face(s) after they comprehend these jobs shall be taken care of 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 additional reasons why this acquisition of temporary storage might be beneficial for those who are moving to Killeen as a result of new job opportunity so they may not even have a spot to take up residence yet. If some of these exceptional conditions exist, you might like to contemplate offering the gift of additional space to those who may require this on a short-term basis. This space may be as straightforward as offering a part 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 select the things they would like to purchase or experience a pre-chosen location or happening to experience. Especially for those who are moving to a new town or possibly a spot in a different state, these prepaid cards could be selected specifically to partake in a new, local stadium, place or function when selecting:


  • A visit to the zoo or amusement park nearby
  • Events occurring soon for them to go to providing them with 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 unwinding after moving


There are different types of memberships to consider such as those to an area fitness center, museum, Performing Arts Center, Tennis or Country Club. Consider what they enjoy and this gift can 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 plethora of gifts to consider in the moving supply classification with containers, tape, markers, packing supplies to shield fragile belongings from damage, and so forth. Bear in mind to think a little "out of the box" with regards to 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 quicken the task. Additionally, there are items which are important when moving including shelf liners, cleaning supplies, and a wide range of paper products, dishes, toilet paper, bath towels, as well as throw away utensils - the list goes on.

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

A Nice Non-Seasonal Gift

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

These gifts are not only useful, but they're extremely clever causing them to be a great gift for our relatives who are moving to Killeen before, soon after or over the season.
