Thank You Presents For Delivery People

If you are reading this and you are a blogger or an online shopper, you most likely see the Fed Ex or UPS truck many times a week. More importantly more people are using delivery services for anything from groceries to wine. 

In fact, I have gotten to know a few of them. One time I was at the bus stop and the guy yelled out the truck that he left a package on my stoop.

Many drivers leave treats for my dog Chloe as well, even when she is not outside. This holiday I have decided to Give Extra and make thank you gifts for the great folks that bring our numerous packages safely and on time.

Does this photo look like your house for some days? Sometimes I will find a dog treat laying on top or a the packages covered in plastic on a rainy day.

Many of my delivery folks have to deal with my dog begging for treats each time they come by. Chloe will push open the front door if she even just hears the sound of a delivery truck nearby. 




Head to your local store or buy any of this online.

While shopping at Walmart I was looking for ideas I saw packs of Extra Gum and thought why not create a clever saying using packs of Extra Gum.

I also found these cute gift boxes at Walmart that will serve as a wonderful base for these gifts. Pick up some Cellophane bags and filler as well.

I also picked up some gift cards to add to the packs. If you are on a budget, include some yummy homemade treats. I am sure the drivers get hungry on their busy holiday routes.

Simply add your goodies to the boxes, making sure the Extra Gum is showing in front so they get the pun.

  8. I love gum! What a cute gift:)

  9. I’d send it to my second oldest son. 🙂 Small touches are really nice.

    Dang cut backs!
