February 4 is Thank Your Mailman Day! We’ve created a free Thank Your Mail Carrier Day printable and put together a few easy and simple ideas to say thanks or to honor the people who deliver mail directly to your home or place of business.
Though the unofficial holiday is called Thank Your Mailman, we’ve designed our printable to thank your Mail Carrier.
What to Gift Your Postal Person on Thank Your Mailman Day
Similar to treating your delivery drivers during the holiday season with drinks and snacks, we think putting together a small consumable gift is a great idea to recognize your mail carrier.
Fill up a small gift bag with your favorite snacks from Trader Joe’s. Who wouldn’t love trail mix, cookies, granola bars? Small on-the-go snacks are a thoughtful idea for your mail carrier who rarely gets a break during the day.
Mid-day sweets are always a good idea! Don’t feel like you have to break the bank. Pick up a few inexpensive candy bars on your next grocery trip.
Should You Tip Your Mail Carrier?
Apparently, mail carriers are not allowed to accept cash gifts. If you would like to honor your mail carrier, the U.S. Postal Service asks that your gratuity not exceed $20 in cash value.
A gift card for coffee, a local pizza spot, a food delivery service or movie passes are a few extraordinarily easy ideas to execute. (affiliate links)
Reduce the size of our free Thank Your Mailman Day printable and attach the gift card. You can leave this in your mailbox or personally hand deliver when you see the postal truck on your street.
