Before we dive into free printables and delivery driver snacks, let's discuss online shopping during this busy time of year.
Online Holiday Shopping
Online Christmas shopping is a convenient and cost-effective way to get your holiday shopping done. No need to worry about fighting the crowds at the mall or feeling overwhelmed in busy stores; you can shop from your home.
Plus, with the click of a button, you can find great deals and discounts on all kinds of items.
Whether you're looking for presents for family members, stocking stuffers for friends, Black Friday deals, or even something special for yourself (tell me I'm not the only one!) - online shopping makes it easy to check off everything on your family's wish list quickly and easily.
The world of online shopping has become increasingly popular over the last few years. With more and more people turning to online stores for their everyday needs, delivery drivers are becoming essential to this growing industry.
Delivery drivers ensure that products are delivered on time and in good condition. They must be responsible and organized to fulfill orders efficiently.
So, a small act of kindness to show we are grateful for delivery workers seems appropriate.

What to Put in the Basket of Goodies
There are so many great snack ideas for a treat basket. Your local grocery stores likely have many options of prepackaged snacks to choose from.
Here are some ideas to get you started with your porch snack baskets:
- Granola Bars
- Protein Bars
- Candy bars
- Individual bags of chips
- Christmas candy
- Non-sugary treats if you prefer healthy snacks
- Cold Drinks: (grab and go refreshments such as small water bottles, regular-sized bottled water, sports drinks, etc.)
A second option might be non-food-related gifts.
- Lottery Tickets
- Personal note (a little note to service workers that frequents your home regularly such as local delivery drivers)
- Gift card for coffee drinks
- Cute Christmas items from the Dollar Tree
Put the items in a basket or small bucket. Decorate the basket with a pretty burlap bow, or just leave it plain.
You might even have different ideas. Use your imagination!
What do Delivery Drivers Appreciate?
Delivery drivers are often the unsung heroes behind our online purchases and favorite restaurant orders. They work hard to ensure that goods get delivered quickly and safely, but what gifts do they appreciate?
A quick online search revealed several items they enjoy receiving from customers.
First and foremost, delivery personnel appreciated monetary tips (more so for food deliveries). Many said they were grateful for any amount given as recognition of their hard work and long hours on the job.
Other popular items included snacks like candy bars or energy drinks and small tokens such as cards or notes expressing appreciation for their services.
For those looking to go above and beyond in showing gratitude, many drivers said gift cards were handy when fueling up between deliveries or grabbing a bite to eat after long shifts.
Keep in mind mail carriers are not allowed to accept cash or gift cards, but the simple gesture of a small snack is sure to be appreciated.

Put the Sign by the Front Door
After you have gathered up all the fun things to put in your delivery driver snack basket, it's time to put up your sign!
The printable sign looked great beside the delivery driver porch snacks. A fun way to make it a little extra fancy is to pop the printable into a frame. I had an old, unused frame that worked great.
As I'm looking at this photo, I realize my mini-tree could use some love. I'll get to that tomorrow! Also, if you want to make a fun wooden porch sign like mine, I have a tutorial.
Whether you live in the city, country, or suburbs, I recommend bringing in your treat box in the evening.
Little critters could likely get into the basket and decide they are hard-working delivery drivers that deserve a treat as much as the Amazon delivery guy!
Be sure to replenish the snacks periodically. It would be a shame to have a sign stating free delivery driver treats, but no treats.
If you live in a warm-weather area, consider putting the beverages in a cooler near your snack station.
And make a regular habit of keeping track of all the Christmas presents you purchase! With lots of packages coming in, it's easy to overlook something.

When it comes to giving a Christmas gift to the mail carrier, there are certain rules and regulations that must be followed in order to comply with the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees. Mail carriers and other USPS workers should never accept cash or gifts of substantial value from customers they serve. Any other Christmas gifts should be at most $20.
Keep it lighthearted and non-monetary, such as a card with words of thanks to your postman. Or even a hand-crafted item created by someone's own hands.
If allowed, monetary tips are always appreciated. Other gift ideas include snacks, small gift cards for coffee, or small notes expressing gratitude.
