    The official "What do you give your mail carrier as a tip" thread ;)

    Sorry BD, I couldn't resist jumping on the "Official" bandwagon!

    I usually make cookies for my usual mail lady, but I am beginning to think I should switch it up.
    What do you do for your mail carrier?

    * using this thread to help give me ideas :o *

    How about:
    Gift Certificates in small amounts maybe to Block Buster to rent a movie, Mc Donald's gift booklet
    Buy an inexpensive thermos and fill it with hot chocolate, tea, coffee
    A healthy snack of trail mix, or chex mix
    A stocking filled with some freebies

    We usually give our mailman either a gift certificate to Blockbuster, McDonald's or something similar.

    Here is what Emily Post says: U.S. government regulations permit carriers to accept gifts worth up to $20 per occasion, not cash

    We usually do gc's too.

    This is the website - it has guidelines for all the people in your life from Au Pair to Yard/Garden Worker
