Moving during “the most wonderful time of the year,” can be anything but wonderful. But sometimes it’s unavoidable. While the holidays are already generally hectic, adding in a move (either local or long-distance) can make anyone’s head spin!
Moving doesn’t have to ruin your holiday fun! Check out our best tips to make a holiday move a little less hectic and a little more enjoyable:
Include a Change of Address in Your Holiday Cards
If you already know your new address, kill two birds with one stone and send your change of address with your holiday cards this year! Bonus: You might have some holiday cards waiting for you at your new home!

Plan an Outdoor Holiday Gathering
Just because you’re moving doesn’t mean skip all the festivities completely. Try having a holiday party in your yard or arrange to have relatives host holiday events, and plan a holiday event in your new home next year!

Even though you are moving, doesn’t mean that you can’t decorate at all! Depending on how close your moving day is especially around Christmas, you might want to wait to put up your tree until you’re settled in your new home.
If you can’t wait: put up a tree, just forgo the ornaments. Little touches of the holidays can lift your spirits when you are in the midst of a move. If holiday decorations make you happy, there’s no need to skip them even if you are moving!
Keep Gifting to a Minimum This Year
The last thing you need when you are moving is more stuff! Consider asking friends and family to not purchase or give gifts until after you have moved into your new home. Perhaps gift cards for restaurants to relax from all that moving and unpacking!
Shop Holiday Sales
Holiday season = sales! Save some money this holiday season and look at your local stores for sales on moving boxes, tape, and other supplies. Plus if your new home needs new decor or furniture, you can get good deals especially around Black Friday and throughout the new year!

Donate Seasonal Items
The holiday is the prime time to donate and spread goodwill to others. If you have holiday decorations that you haven’t used in a while, consider donating them so others can get some use out of them this year. Gently used appliances, clothing, books, furniture, etc. can be holiday gifts for those who are less fortunate.
Keep Your Family Busy
As a family-owned business, we care about yours too. Keep kids busy and away the holiday blues during the move! If you have children, make sure to fit in family holiday traditions around the moving.
Once you get to your new home, take a walk around the neighborhood to see the Christmas lights, get hot cocoa, or take your kids to the mall to see Santa. Although a move during the holidays is out of the norm, you can still make it memorable!
Give Yourself the Gift of Professional Movers
