  • How about sending an "Edible Arrangement" (fresh fruit bouquet) to their new home?

  • What is your budget?

    Maybe a small photo album with some pictures of things you did with the family and children along with a nice closing letter to wish them well in the future.

  • It would be nice to do maybe a coupon for delivery pizza.

  • I would get something for the kids. Maybe something for them to play with during the car right to their new home or something for them to play with until they unpack all of their toys/belongings.

  • Make them a photo album of you and the kids together...write each one a little journal page of some of your favorite days or get-to-gethers. Kids love balloons, kazoos, markers, fizzy candy....make them up a grab bag...along with the above.
