“Hipsters” to the Rescue: How do YOU Give Back During the Holidays?

Reader, Stephanie, recently emailed with this question:

Thanks to you I’ve been receiving tons of mail… packages, samples, envelopes, etc. I receive so much each day that most of the time all my mail doesn’t fit into my mailbox. My mailman is so kind as to bring any excess up to my door, which I know he is not required to do. Because of his kindness and hard work throughout the year I’d like to give him a small gift for the holidays to show him my appreciation, but not exactly sure what I could do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Now it’s your turn!

What are your thoughts on this? Do you give your Mailman a huge tip this time of year (and they definitely do a lot of work for all of us that love to request those freebies! ;) )? Or do you bake cookies and other yummy treats for your Hairstylist/Teacher/Mailman etc…? Please share any creative and frugal ideas you may have to show your appreciation for these special people. Thanks!
