If a friend or a family member is moving away, it can be bittersweet. Even if they’re escaping the gray winter weather of Western New York and settling somewhere sunny, they can still be incredibly lonely if they don’t know anyone there and haven’t made any friends yet.

Buffalo has so many unique things about it that are easy to miss when you’re out of town, yet hard to explain to someone else who’s not from the area. That’s why it can be extra challenging for someone who is moving away from the Buffalo area to someone new.

You can show someone how much you care while celebrating their new life adventure and giving them a little taste (literally) of home by mailing them a piece of Buffalo.

It could be a shippable morsel from their favorite restaurant, a condiment they can’t find in their new grocery stores, or something to show their love for their favorite team in their new state.

Here are some ideas of things you can send to your faraway loved ones who are homesick for the 716.

Send 'em something sugary and sweet to let them know you're thinking of them.
