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

The arrival of the holidays and period of giving tend to be a stressful period and incorporating moving to a new house in Atlanta in the array causes it to be even crazier and anxious, yet it still takes place. Selecting the ideal gift item for family or friends can often be difficult enough by itself and a lot more challenging when you consider these recipients don't really want (or need) extra "stuff" to bring along when relocating to a new place.

Therefore, in this light, here are some super sensible, somewhat festive and innovative gift suggestions for those on our list who'll be moving to Atlanta in the New Year.

Offer A Professional Mover

Regardless of whether they may be moving around the corner or across the country, everyone knows what a inconvenience it is to pack, load up and move. Consider giving them a gift certificate for or some funds toward getting a professional mover in Atlanta to accomplish these services for them. Picture the look on their face(s) once they understand these chores shall be managed by a knowledgeable moving company.

Provide a Storage Space

If you are downsizing, they might want non-permanent storage room when they are getting established into a smaller sized area. There might be other reasons why this acquisition of non permanent storage could be beneficial for those who find themselves moving to Atlanta as a result of new job opportunity so they might not even have a location to reside yet. If some of these special circumstances exist, you might want to think about presenting the gift of extra space to those who may need this on a short-term basis. This place may be as simple as offering a nook of your basement or garage to store items without charge in the short term.

Presents for a New Location

Gift cards are a popular gift where recipients either choose what they want to buy or experience a pre-chosen place or event to enjoy. Especially for people who find themselves moving to an unfamiliar town or possibly a spot in a different state, these gift cards may be chosen particularly to enjoy a new, local arena, site or occasion when choosing:


  • A visit to the zoo or theme park in the area
  • Activities taking place soon for them to attend getting them an escape soon after moving (search for calendars in their respective area)
  • A gift certificate to a popular chain or well-loved nearby cafe (look at online review sites for choices)
  • Massage sessions or perhaps a spa day for unwinding after moving


There are different types of memberships to bear in mind for example those to a nearby health club, museum, Performing Arts Center, Golf or Country Club. Think about whatever they enjoy and this gift might be a fantastic approach to welcome them to this new place without being there yourself.

Wrap Up Some Moving Materials

There's a plethora of presents to consider in the moving supply classification with boxes, tape, markers, packing supplies to protect sensitive things from damage, and so forth. Bear in mind to think a little bit "out of the box" in terms of making these choices. Although rolls of tape will be a fantastic pick, make sure you pick up a hand-held tape dispenser to really speed up the process. Additionally, there are items that are important when relocating such as shelf inserts, cleaning products, and a wide variety of paper products, dishes, toilet paper, bath towels, and disposable utensils - the list continues on.

Be sure to "pack up" these presents and wrap them in a festive manner or make them appear as a package headed for the new house. Additional options include items with their new home address printed on for instance a personalized, ornamental sign to decorate the door or lawn of their new residence.

A Thoughtful Non-Seasonal Present

If relocating right after the holidays have passed, you might still go ahead and give your friends or family members a helpful gift on or prior to moving day. A care package might include essentials for arrival at their new house which won't have them running around opening boxes. This box might contain often forgotten about items including toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized items like shampoo, a non-perishable breakfast, snacks or edible items.

Any one of these gifts aren't only sensible, but they're extremely thoughtful making them a great gift for our friends and family who are moving to Atlanta before, soon after or throughout the season.
