What do you give your mail man and your garbage man for Christmas?

I gave my postal carrier a Dunkin' Donuts gift card, but I'm not sure what to do for the sanitation workers. What do you do?

  • I give cash to the mail man and the UPS man, but other than mailing something to the company, there's no way I can get something to the garbage men, the pick up place is a distance from the house and I'm afraid anything would be stolen.

  • I'm a horrible "customer" I don't give them anything...

    Mostly because someone would probably steal it before they got to my house..

  • nothing.... i never see them. our mailbox is 1/2 mile away and the garbage men comes too early for me to see them. When I was yonger we always had stuff shipped ups everyday so my parents gave him $50 giftcards to resturants and stuff like that.

  • My parents always left bottles of wine out for the garbage men and the mail man. I don't know what we'll do this year, it's our first year in our new house!

  • Even though you're not supposed to give federal employees money, we always give them $20. Garbage men too.

  • We always have a different mail carrier, so we don't do anything. My husband tends to have a lot of stuff for the trash men to pick up because of his job. He gives the trash guys each $20 every month or two so they will take his extra stuff.
