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 including 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 much 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 anyone on our list who might be moving to Colorado Springs in 2020.

Offer A Professional Mover

Regardless of whether they're moving around the corner or maybe across the country, everyone understands what a inconvenience it is to pack, load up and relocate. Think about providing them a gift certificate for or some cash toward getting a professional mover in Colorado Springs to perform these services for them. Picture the look on their face(s) once they understand these tasks will be covered by a knowledgeable moving company.

Send a Storage Space

For those who are downsizing, they may need temporary storage space when they're getting established in a smaller space. There could be other reasons why this acquisition of short-term storage might be good for those people who are moving to Colorado Springs due to a new job opportunity so they would possibly not even have a location to live yet. In case some of these particular circumstances are present, you might want to contemplate giving the gift of additional space to those that 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 items free of charge temporarily.

Presents for a New Locale

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


  • A visit to the zoo or amusement park in the community
  • Activities taking place soon for them to go to getting them an escape after moving (search for calendars in their specific town)
  • A gift card to a favorite chain or well-loved neighborhood bistro (check online review sites for possibilities)
  • Massage sessions or possibly a spa day for unwinding soon after moving


There are a variety of memberships to bear in mind for example those to a local fitness center, museum, Performing Arts Center, Golf or Country Club. Consider whatever they take pleasure in and this gift could be a unique 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 items from damage, and so forth. But don't forget to think a little "out of the box" with regards to making these selections. Although rolls of tape can be an excellent choice, be sure to pick up one of those hand-held rollers to really speed up the process. There are also products which are important when moving such as shelf inserts, cleaning supplies, along with a wide range of paper products, plates, TP, towels, and disposable utensils - the list continues on.

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

A Gracious Non-Seasonal Gift

When moving right after the holidays have passed, you might still go ahead and give your friends or family a helpful present on or before moving day. A care package might include essentials for arrival to their new house that won't have them rushing around opening cartons. This box might contain commonly overlooked things including toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized stuff like shampoo, a non-perishable breakfast, snack foods or edible items.

These gift ideas aren't only useful, but they're extremely thoughtful causing them to be a perfect gift for our relatives who are moving to Colorado Springs before, soon after or during the season.
