    So, I've been thinking about it, and I think I finally know what I'm going to set out for our mail carrier. She's a real sweetheart, and when we're out, she always stops to talk and just loves the birds. I'm thinking about setting gifting her a candle, two bars of soap and a dozen eggs from the ladies. Since we only have a regular mail box, I don't know exactly how I'm going to do it, but I'll figure something out. Does anyone else gift their mail carrier anything for the holidays? What do you gift?

    It's my understanding it's illegal to give them gifts.

    DD's girl scout troop just gave gifts to their letter carriers and on Monday they are delivering gifts to the PO in town to all of the employees.

    It is illegal to give them CASH. but gift cards and gifts up to $20 are fine.

    A piece of my mind... If I could figure out which one is putting everyones mail in the wrong boxes.. We keep having diffrent mail carriers. We also keep having to drive to other peoples houses to get our mail or take theirs to them...

    Sounds like my regular postal worker trained yours. If I could have mine submit to a brain scan he'd be declared dead and carted off in a heartbeat....

    Our mailman does/has done a great job for many years. Yes, I will be gifting him in the same manner I have for the past 20 years. Illegal? Too late to change now. [​IMG]
