Homesick Location Candle
When your neighbors move away, they will miss everything about home, including the smell. These Homesick Location Candles have a different scent for each state, city, or country. For example, Southern California has the scent of orange, lemon, and rose. I thought Colorado would smell like weed, but apparently, it smells like spruce needles and cinnamon.

What Makes the Best Gifts for Neighbors Moving Away?
When choosing gifts for neighbors moving away, find things that will make them smile and think of the good times you had together. Whether you pick a sentimental gift or a snarky funny gift, you can’t go wrong. But keep in mind that items such as plants are hard for them to move so you are only giving them more to do during a stressful time. So smaller gifts that are easier to transport are the way to go.
