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

The advent of the holidays and season of giving tend to be a demanding period and adding moving to a new residence in Little Rock into the mix makes it even crazier and disorderly, yet it still occurs. Choosing just the right present for family or friends is usually difficult enough by itself and even more challenging when considering these recipients don't truly want (or need) additional "stuff" to bring along when relocating to a new place.

So, in this light, here are a few extremely sensible, fairly festive and thoughtful gift ideas for anyone on our list who'll be moving to Little Rock in the New Year.

Present A Professional Mover

Regardless of whether they are moving around the corner or maybe across the country, everyone knows what a bother it really is to pack, load up and move. Contemplate providing them with a gift certificate for or some money toward using a professional mover in Little Rock to complete these services for them. Picture the look on their face(s) after they realize these chores shall be managed by a knowledgeable moving company.

Provide a Storage Space

For people who are downsizing, they may require temporary storage space when they're getting settled into a smaller area. There may be other reasons why this acquisition of short-term storage could be helpful for those who are moving to Little Rock because of a new job opportunity and they might not even have a spot to take up residence yet. If a few of these unique situations exist, you may want to consider providing the gift of additional space to those who may require this on a short-term basis. This place could be as straightforward as offering a part of your basement or garage to store things free of charge in the short term.

Presents for a New Locale

Gift cards are a typical present where recipients possibly select whatever they would like to buy or partake in a pre-chosen spot or happening to enjoy. Particularly for those people who are moving to a new place or even a location in another state, these gift cards may be picked specifically to experience a new, local stadium, location or happening when buying:


  • A trip to the zoo or theme park nearby
  • Activities occurring soon for them to go to getting them a break following moving (search for event calendars in their respective town)
  • A gift card to a popular chain or well-loved local cafe (look at online review sites for options)
  • Massage sessions or perhaps a spa day for unwinding after relocation


There are different types of subscriptions to consider such as those to a local health club, museum, Performing Arts Center, Tennis or Country Club. Consider whatever they enjoy and this gift could be a fantastic approach to welcome them to this new area without being there yourself.

Wrap Up A few Moving Materials

There's a plethora of gifts to consider in the moving supply category with containers, tape, markers, packaging materials to safeguard delicate items from harm, 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 option, be sure to pick up a hand-held rollers to really speed up the task. There are also products which are needed when relocating such as shelf liners, cleaning products, plus a wide variety of paper goods, dishes, toilet paper, bath towels, and also disposable utensils - the list goes on.

Be sure and "pack up" these gifts and wrap them in a holiday manner or make them appear as a box destined for a new home. Other choices incorporate items with their new street address printed on such as a custom-made, decorative sign to decorate the door or landscape of their new residence.

A Thoughtful Non-Seasonal Gift

If relocating following the holidays have passed, you might still proceed to give your friends or family members a helpful gift on or before moving day. A care package may include fundamentals for arrival at their new residence which won't have them rushing around opening cartons. This package might hold often forgotten about things including toiletries, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, coffee, travel-sized items like shampoo, a non-perishable breakfast, snacks or edible items.

Any of these presents are not only useful, but they are extremely thoughtful which makes them a perfect gift for our loved ones who are moving to Little Rock prior to, following or throughout the season.
