PSS International Removals, based in Croydon, UK, is sharing gift suggestions for friends or family who are moving abroad. This insight can be found for free in one of the company’s more recent blog posts, penned by CEO Liam Witham. The post provides both practical and sentimental gift options that are travel friendly.
PSS has been helping people move abroad for over 40 years, and the team believed it would be useful to put together a list of some of the best farewell gifts for migrants and expats heading off to live in different countries. For instance, when it comes to picking a gift for someone moving or living abroad, it is important to make practical choices. If they are travelling to their destination by aeroplane, it cannot be a gift that will result in them using up almost all of their baggage allowance, however thoughtful and amazing it may be. If looking for birthday or Christmas gifts for overseas friends, most are certainly not going to want to pay exorbitant postal fees to send large or heavy objects overseas. Lightweight gifts to post or pack into luggage are the best solution to minimise expense and stress.
At first, it can be difficult to think of the perfect present, but there is no shortage of ideas when one makes an effort. It is also practical to think about why the person or family in question are moving overseas; they may be a migrating family, a working expat or a student going abroad to study. A gift can be chosen depending on what they may need at that point. Relocating to another country almost always means downsizing, and it is important to avoid making that process more difficult by choosing something bulky, heavy and impractical. As such, gift card vouchers for local shops are always a good choice. Moving abroad usually means setting up a home from scratch as well, and that can be expensive. One can easily welcome friends or family to their new country by giving them gift vouchers for local shops. It is best to find out the best local businesses such as popular restaurants, department stores and supermarkets that offer digital vouchers and gift cards.
Similarly, a practical gift that allows them to save as they establish their new life is always a good idea. A universal travel adaptor plug is also a great choice as most people take a lot of electrical devices with them when they are moving abroad but cannot use said devices without having a travel adaptor plug. Different countries have different kinds of plugs that fit into their local power outlets — and with over a dozen different types of socket and plug types, having a universal adaptor will take away that problem.
An international gift basket of British goodies from British Corner Shop is the perfect Christmas or birthday gift for UK citizens and expats living overseas. No matter how excited they are about their new country of residence, they are bound to miss their favourite UK treats. One can pick a ready-made care package or do a pick-and-mix. They have all the classic UK brands, from Marks & Spencer to Walkers crisps. They also have seasonal favourites as well, such as mince pies, Christmas pudding and even Advent calendars at Christmas. A Lonely Planet guidebook for the country or city they are moving to is also a great choice of gift. Lonely Planet guidebooks are not just for tourists, and while they are certainly great for finding out about the main visitor attractions, they also provide a huge amount of useful information for those planning to stay longer. Written by people with local knowledge, the book provides numerous insider tips on culture, shopping and eating but also sections on free activities, emergencies and what is on each month. The blog post has plenty more suggestions, ensuring that one could find a suitable gift without much hassle.
