  • Modern designs

If the house is ultra-modern, you can’t go wrong with a minimalist address plaque with a metal finish. Square or circle plaques can also add a modern touch that the new homeowner will love.

  • Special occasion plaques

Housewarming gifts also provide the opportunity to get creative! Instead of a basic address plaque, go for one with the recipient's anniversary date or another significant milestone unique to the homeowner.

Seasonal or holiday-themed address plaques are also a huge hit. Keep in mind that these plaques are fun, but can’t be used year-round, so they may not be as practical.
