Increase Your Curb Appeal With Magnetic Mailbox Covers

The inside of your house reflects your style, but what about the outside? If this is on your ‘to-do’ list, then one really easy and inexpensive way to update your outside curb appeal is by using mailbox covers. These simple to install and attractive additions signal to the world that you are celebrating life and all it has to offer.

In addition to dressing up the outside of your house, they are a good way to add a touch of the season. There are so many different styles and types of mailbox covers that you will be able to find the perfect one(s) for your use. Plus, they make wonderful gifts, too. So, when you are looking for that perfect gift for someone who has everything, think about purchasing and giving them one or more of these decorative mailbox covers. Some of the mailbox covers even come with a matching, or coordinating, garden flag to make outdoor decorating even easier.

While mailbox covers can be found in many stores, Amazon has a large selection (approximately 295) of seasonal, holiday, patriotic, everyday, funny, pets, religious, hobby, and sports mail box covers from which to choose. Included in their comprehensive selection is one that is just right for your home and personality. So, prop up your feet, and let’s go explore what’s available.

Seasonal and/or Holiday Mailbox Covers

When you turn over the page of your calendar for another month, why not decorate your mailbox to reflect the new month. For instance, choose a seasonal or holiday cover such as:

January          Pick a winter day scene or snowmen

February        Hearts for Valentine’s Day

March             Shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day

April                Bunnies or decorated eggs for Easter

May                 Lovely spring flowers or perhaps a patriotic cover for Memorial Day

June                Get ready for beach time with a beach scene or flip-flops

July                 Patriotic flag cover to celebrate the 4th of July

August             A colorful summer garden image

September     Remember Patriot Day on September 11

October          Choose a symbol of fall or one of many exciting Halloween covers

November      Pick from many Thanksgiving themed covers

December       For Christmas, there are Santas, ornaments, religious, nutcrackers, etc.,  covers, or celebrate with a Happy Hanukkah cover

Other Decorative Mailbox Covers

So, you say, what else is there to celebrate? What other covers would anyone want? Well, there are mailbox covers for birthday celebrations, New Year’s Eve, college alumni covers, kitten and dog covers, one to show your love for your grandchildren, some simply with a monogram, or the symbol of hospitality – a pineapple, and every Alan Jackson and/or Jimmy Buffett fan will want a "It's Always Five O Clock Here" mailbox cover.

Mailbox Cover Installation

Are they difficult to install? No, they are quick and easy! Many of the covers are magnetic, and some are attached to the mailbox with Velcro or straps.
