NEW CONSTRUCTION HOMES

Most new construction homes prominently place the house numbers either in a concrete block or the latest trend, an entryway beam over the porch. But, how many times, especially visiting someone's brand new home, do you look at the house numbers twice and still wonder if you're at the right one? You desperately search for their car or some kind of identification that assures that you are not about to ring the wrong doorbell. Entry Envy signs can be personalized with last names or monograms and mounted on any surface from stone to hardy plank. Placed on the front porch or by the front door helps guests and delivery drivers know they are at the correct home before leaving your groceries at the neighbor's. In other words, "mark your spot!" For no additional charge, you can include "Est. 2022" for the year the house was built, they got married, or they moved into their new house.

Other ideas for new construction homeowners:

  • Landscaping gift certificate
  • Solar lights to shine on new landscaping or in outdoor pots
  • Wifi plugs (one cannot have too many of these! The brand doesn't matter too much, just make sure they are Alexa compatible.)
  • Alexa Echo Show. Okay, so yes, I am an Alexa addict. And Siri. These women make my life so much better, and I employ them whenever possible. They have their moments, but hey, don't we all, and it's free labor. I love my Show in the kitchen for recipes and a quick "drop-in" with my kids when I am not home. 
  • Your tech time. If you are gifting something to someone not as tech-savvy as you may be, they might appreciate your assistance setting up their technology more than anything. Setting up tech can be a somewhat painful process that takes hours and patience. Open a bottle of wine and make it as fun as possible! 
  • Diffuser for the powder bath. Volupsa, Capri Blue, and Nest are my favorite diffuser brands, choose a sent you like and immediately spruce up any room.
  • Fabulous hand soap or lotion. I have never met anyone who doesn't love this Niven Morgan lotion and soap set. Seriously, no one.

PRE-EXISTING HOME GIFTS

Older homes that new owners have recently occupied may not be well marked. Traditionally, house numbers have not been well placed on a house, making it hard to find and, honestly, a bit dangerous if emergency personnel ever need to be called. Entry Envy signs are a fabulous housewarming gift for new homeowners and make especially great unique wedding gifts. You can design the custom home sign online, including free gift wrap and shipping, or give a gift certificate to design their own! With so many beautiful options, you can't go wrong.

Other ideas for new homeowners:

  • Technology is wonderful. Wifi plugs, Nest thermostat, Ring doorbell, Blink mini cameras, and Alexa Echo Show or Dots. There are so many more, but these are a few of my favorites. Most of them are super easy to set up, and if you are gifting to an older couple, perhaps their adult children could help them? 
  • How about a new rug for their front porch or a planter? 
  • You can rarely go wrong with a bottle of wine.
  • When all else fails, go for the Amazon gift card!

As we all know, almost everyone tackled home projects during the COVID lockdown and many people (like myself) tacked their entire house! Entry Envy was actually created during COVID as a result of my own remodel.

About three-quarters of the way through it, I realized that the inside of my house looked brand new, but the house numbers on the outside were old, outdated, and hard to see. Granted, the outside of my house needs more work than just new house numbers, but let me tell you, they go a long way to make a statement.

Our custom exterior wooden house signs make the perfect gift for current homeowners who want to update their curb appeal and make their homes more identifiable. Our monthly sign refill décor kits make life simple by shipping the upcoming holiday or seasonal decor straight to their door.
