This holiday season I’ve been trying to focus on what I enjoy most about this time of year. I’m letting go of what I feel obligated to do and put more emphasis on the little things that make me happy. Showing appreciation for the things I might overlook throughout the year tops my list. I hope you might find the idea of gifting your delivery drivers with a small treat a good one! Scroll down to get your own free holiday delivery driver printable sign.
Last week I opened my front door to find no less than five boxes sitting on my front porch. This included a ridiculously large and heavy Tesla toy car my husband inadvertently purchased. How that happened is beyond me but I’m certain the UPS delivery driver isn’t going to be super pleased when they have to lug it back onto their truck when we return it. Plus, I imagine not only the UPS driver but the USPS, FedEx, Amazon, dry cleaner and grocery delivery drivers will be here many more times over the next few weeks because it’s just that time of year.
Before the holidays become all consuming, I put together a basket full of snacks, treats and drinks for those delivery drivers who make my life easier. I found a cheap holiday basket at my local Michael’s and filled it with high-protein snacks like granola cups, RX Bars and peanut butter bars. I also tucked in a few small water bottles and sports drinks.
Megan created a really cute printable so to alert the delivery drivers that these snacks are for them. I printed it out on a piece of card stock and attached it to a clip board. Easy as that!
I’m really curious to see how often I need to replenish the basket. If you were a delivery driver, would you grab a snack or a drink for the road out on your route? I think I would, especially if it was a home I deliver to often.
