Neon signs

There are hundreds of fun neon designs to choose from. Choose manly designs for a mancave, or whimsical designs for kids or a party (like a moon neon sign).

According to Radikal Neon Signs, “…traditional neon uses almost ten times the power consumption as LED neon for a very similar lighting effect. That means that LED neon is way more eco-friendly.”

This means probably 100% of what you see on Amazon is going to be LED signs.

Customize your sign with:

  • a person’s first name
  • a family name (The Davidson’s)
  • name + icon
  • name of your company or brand

No soliciting sign

Strangely enough, a salesperson recently hit up our neighborhood trying to sell educational books. The neighbors all agreed the “no solicitation” signs should go up.

No soliciting signs can be very to the point. The message can also be softened with humour.

“No soliciting” is a term used to indicate that the homeowner or business owner does not want to be approached or bothered by salespeople or other individuals who are trying to sell goods or services. The term is often used in the context of signs that are posted on doors or in windows of homes or businesses.

When a “no soliciting” sign is posted, it means that the homeowner or business owner does not want to be contacted by salespeople, religious groups, or other individuals who are trying to sell or promote something. This includes door-to-door salespeople, telemarketers, and other types of solicitors.

It is important to respect “no soliciting” signs and not approach homes or businesses that have them posted. Ignoring a “no soliciting” sign can be considered trespassing and may result in legal consequences.

Nostalgic gifts

Your gift exchange might be a themed idea for nostalgia gifts. To pull this type of exchange off, it would have to be the right crowd. If it’s your idea for a single person, then claim “Nostalgia” for your gift that starts with the letter N!

Consider letter N nostalgic gift ideas such as: nostalgic candy gift basket, vintage board games, retro record player, personalized photo album, or classic movie collection.

Overall, nostalgic gifts are a great way to show someone that you care and that you appreciate their memories and experiences. Whether it’s candy from their childhood or a vintage board game, these gifts are a nice thought.
