These days, you can never be too cautious when it comes to identity protection, and mail theft is just one of the many ways fraudsters get your personal information. Even if you aren't concerned about identity protection, which you really should be, we know that you'll want to safeguard those Amazon deliveries.

The Architectural Mailboxes Oasis and Step2 StoreMore are also lockable options, though offer slightly less security than the previous two, either due to design elements or material strength.
If adding some additional charm to your home's exterior is a top priority, then we think you'll like the Addresses of Distinction Charleston, Dress the Yard Amish SMB-WN, Gibraltar Garrison, and 4Ever Homestead. Of these, the Addresses of Distinction Charleston and Dress the Yard Amish SMB-WN definitely make the largest statements, while the Gibraltar Garrison and 4Ever Homestead are slightly more subdued.
Those who often travel for weeks at a time should definitely consider the Step2 StoreMore, which has a removable trap door that turns the entire base into a storage area, so you won't have to worry about an overstuffed mailbox while you are out of town.
