The advent of the holiday season and season of giving are nearly always a hectic period and incorporating moving to a new residence in Tulsa and Oklahoma City in the array can make it even crazier and anxious, yet it still happens. Choosing the ideal present for friends or family can often be difficult enough by itself and even more challenging if you think about these recipients do not truly want (or need) additional "stuff" to pack when moving to a new area.

Therefore, in this light, here are a few super practical, somewhat festive and clever present ideas for anyone on our list who might be moving to Tulsa and Oklahoma City in 2020.

Offer A Professional Mover

Regardless of whether they're moving around the corner or a fair distance, everybody knows what a inconvenience it is to pack, load up and relocate. Think about providing them with a gift certificate for or some funds toward using a professional mover in Tulsa and Oklahoma City to complete these services for them. Picture the look on their face(s) after they understand these chores shall be covered by a knowledgeable moving company.

Send a Storage Space

For people who are downsizing, they may require short-term storage space while they're getting established into a scaled-down space. There could be various other reasons why this acquisition of short-term storage may be beneficial for those who find themselves moving to Tulsa and Oklahoma City as a result of new job opportunity so they might 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 supplying a nook of the basement or garage to store things without charge in the short term.

Giving Gifts for a New Area

Gift certificates are a common gift where recipients either select whatever they wish to purchase or experience a pre-chosen spot or function to experience. Especially for those who are moving to a strange city or possibly a location in a different state, these gift cards could be picked especially to partake in a new, local stadium, place 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 following moving (search for calendars in their respective town)
  • A gift certificate to a favorite chain or well-loved nearby restaurant (look at online review sites for options)
  • Massage sessions or a spa day for relaxing after moving


There are also a variety of memberships to think about including those to a nearby gym, museum, Performing Arts Center, Tennis or Country Club. Take into consideration the things they enjoy and this gift might be a fantastic way 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, etc. But don't forget to think slightly "out of the box" in terms of making these selections. Although rolls of tape are a fantastic choice, make sure to get one of those hand-held tape dispenser to really accelerate the task. Additionally, there are things 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 continues on.

Be sure and "pack up" these gifts and wrap them in a festive manner or make them appear as a box destined for the new location. Other options include gifts with their new home address printed on for instance a personalized, decorative sign to adorn the door or yard of their updated house.

A Gracious Non-Seasonal Present

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

Any one of these gift ideas aren't only sensible, but they're also very clever causing them to be a perfect present for our friends and family who are moving to Tulsa and Oklahoma City just before, soon after or throughout 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.
