Meaningful Moving Gifts For…

Your Friends & Family

Custom House Portrait

Leaving a house can be bittersweet, especially if it was home to many happy memories over the years. We love this digitally rendered custom house portrait as a gift for parents or grandparents who may be moving onto the next chapter after selling their family home. It’s sure to be a cherished reminder of where they spent many wonderful years!

Two States Home Sweet Home Sign

When friends or family are moving out of state, this is the perfect gift for reminding them that they’ll always have a home in two places. A great addition to a going away party, guests can sign the back of the board with their well-wishes.

Long Distance Friendship Gift

Although in-person get-togethers may be a thing of the past, living in a digital age has made connecting from afar easier than ever. Order this simple, yet thoughtful custom wine glass for you and your best friend, pour yourselves a drink, and hop on a call to catch up once they’re settled in their new home.

Moving Away Will Be Okay!

We love this book for kids that are feeling anxious about their move. Filled with rhymes and positive messages, it’s a great book for younger kids embarking on their first moving adventure.

“There’s one thing that will not change-
Think Hard! I know you’ll guess.
Your friends and family love you,
no matter your address!”
