16 Crazy Mailboxes That Take Getting The Mail To A Whole New Level

by Jess Catcher
Jess grew up in Oklahoma before moving to New York to become a writer. She has a cat named Agnes.

Most of us have a standard issue mailbox sitting out in our yard, but I love seeing homeowners who take things up a notch with creative spins on their boxes.

All of the examples below can definitely fit into that category! Can you just imagine the look on a postal worker’s face when they see the giant animal surrounding the home’s mailbox in #4? Or how about some of the hilarious ways people have upcycled their old appliances?

The themes range from nerdy sci-fi to outdoorsy fisherman. They’ve all totally inspired me to let a little bit of my own personality shine through my mailbox, too.
