Gift giving can be challenging especially when you're short on time. With a little bit of planning, you can find excellent gifts that will bring joy and delight to the recipient. Gifts that are from small businesses, that are handcrafted, or are personalized always make a great impression! If you or someone you care about is a new homeowner, we have some wonderful gift ideas for you to consider.

Holiday gifts for new homeowners from Modern House Numbers

 Gift ideas for new homeowners, for friends and family who have recently renovated their home, or for anyone looking to boost their curb appeal will really appreciate a gift that acknowledges their home, and appeals to their personal style. Better than something you might find a the local home improvement store, here are four holiday gift ideas that will make your present the best one under the tree!

1. Stylish House Numbers

If your friends or family are looking to boost their curb appeal without commitment to a major exterior renovation, one of the best ways to punch up the exterior is with a new set of stylish address numbers. Modern House Numbers offers address numbers and letters in a great selection of fonts that are designed to look great on any style of home. Be sure to allow around 10-15 business days for handcrafted numbers that are made to order. If you're short on time, or if you want new numbers to install in time for holiday guests and deliveries, our QuickShip numbers ship out the next business day.

2. Welcome Sign

Another thoughtful gift idea for any homeowner is a stylish, modern welcome sign. A welcome plaque in a modern shape and font is a good way to create a warm welcome and a great first impression. Modern House Numbers creates welcome signs in circle, square and rectangular shapes, modern fonts, and gorgeous finishes. These stylish signs can be mounted on the exterior or interior of any home, condo, apartment, or guest house. Choose the options that best match the style of the recipient or homeowner, and it is sure to be a gift they'll never forget.

3. Personalized Plaque

For the person who has it all, a personalized plaque is one of the best gifts you can gift. You can create a custom design with their name, initials, monogram, or even family crest or logo. Choose a modern shape, and font for a one-of-a-kind gift that you can't get anywhere else.  Be sure to allow at least two weeks for the design and manufacturing of a custom plaque. These unique gifts are not found in stores, and will last for years to come.

4. e-Gift Card

When you're really short on time, or if you want your loved one to be able to choose the style of their new numbers or sign, an electronic gift card is a great option for holiday giving. The Modern House Numbers e-gift card is available in the increment of your choosing and is delivered instantly with a unique redemption code to your email address.  You can forward it on as a holiday gift for a friend, family member or coworker at any time for fast and immediate delivery. They can use their gift any time over the following 12 months, allowing them time to finish up their project, or take all the time they need to make their favorite selection.  Modern House Numbers gift cards are good for every single product on the site, including shipping.


This holiday, make an impression on your friends and loved ones. Choose a modern, handcrafted gift made just for them in Tucson Arizona. They'll be so happy, and will remember your thoughtfulness for years to come.
