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

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

The advent of the holidays and period of giving tend to be a hectic time of year and adding moving to a new residence in Colorado Springs into the array makes it even crazier and anxious, however it still occurs. Finding the ideal gift item for friends or family can often be difficult enough alone and even more complex if you think about these recipients do not really want (or need) extra "stuff" to bring along when moving to a new area.

So, in this light, here are several extremely practical, relatively festive and innovative gift ideas for those on our list who might be moving to Colorado Springs in 2020.

Present A Professional Mover

Regardless of whether they are moving around the corner or maybe around the globe, everyone understands what a inconvenience it is to pack, load up and relocate. Consider providing them a gift certificate for or some money toward hiring a professional mover in Colorado Springs to perform these services for them. Picture the look on their face(s) once they realize these chores will be covered by a knowledgeable moving company.

Send a Storage Space

For those who are downsizing, they might require temporary storage space when they're getting established in a smaller area. There could be other reasons why this acquisition of short-term storage could be beneficial for those people who are moving to Colorado Springs as a result of new job opportunity so they would possibly not even have a location to live yet. In case a few of these particular circumstances are present, you might want to contemplate giving the gift of additional space to those who might need this on a short-term basis. This space could be as simple as presenting a nook of the basement or garage to hold things at no cost temporarily.

Presents for a New Location

Gift certificates can be a typical present where recipients possibly choose whatever they would like to purchase or participate in a pre-chosen spot or function to enjoy. Particularly for those people who are moving to a strange area or possibly a location in another state, these prepaid cards might be picked particularly to experience a new, local arena, site or event when purchasing:


  • A visit to the zoo or amusement park in the community
  • Events happening soon for them to go to providing them with an escape after moving (search for calendars in their specific city)
  • A gift card to a favorite chain or well-loved neighborhood bistro (check online review sites for options)
  • Massage sessions or possibly a spa day for relaxation soon after moving


There are a variety of memberships to bear in mind for example those to a nearby fitness center, museum, Performing Arts Center, Golf or Country Club. Think about whatever they enjoy and this gift can be a special strategy to welcome them to this new area without being there yourself.

Wrap Up Several Moving Supplies

You will find a plethora of gifts to bear in mind in the moving supply classification with bins, tape, markers, packing products to shield fragile things from damage, and so forth. But remember to think a little "out of the box" when it comes to making these selections. Although rolls of tape can be an excellent choice, make sure to pick up one of those hand-held rollers to really accelerate the task. There's also products which are important when moving including shelf inserts, cleaning supplies, and a wide range of paper products, plates, TP, bath towels, as well as disposable utensils - the list goes on.

Be sure to "pack up" these gifts and wrap them in a fun manner or make them appear like a bundle destined for a new home. Additional options incorporate items with their new street address printed on such as a personalized, ornamental sign to embellish the door or yard of the updated house.

A Thoughtful Non-Seasonal Gift

When moving right after the holidays have passed, you might still go ahead and give your friends or family a clever present on or before moving day. A care package may include necessities for arrival to their new location that will not have them rushing around opening cartons. This box could contain frequently overlooked things including toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized stuff like shampoo, a non-perishable breakfast, snacks or edible items.

Any one of these gift ideas aren't only useful, but they're extremely thoughtful which makes them an ideal gift for our relatives who are moving to Colorado Springs before, soon after or during the season.
