Do you online shop year-round from the comfort of your home?

If you’re like me and do lots of shopping online, then it’s possible you could be getting packages delivered every day! With that said, here’s a fun and easy way to say THANK YOU as a way of giving back to those hardworking delivery drivers all year long! They’re an important part of making online shopping easy for everyone and they definitely deserve our appreciation and a nice shout out. ❤️

Thank a delivery driver with some snacks!

Consider putting a small basket of grab-and-go refreshments, such as individually wrapped snacks, on your doorstep for a delivery person to grab and go as they drop off packages at your home. You can get the kids involved to help put together your treat box as an easy project.

It’s just a small act of kindness that can brighten someone’s day and can help fuel a driver’s energy too!

How to Thank Your Delivery Person During the Holidays

We now have two designs for you to choose from!

Our Christmas version of this sign has been so popular over the last couple of years, we decided to include a separate one to use year-round! Now you can continue this fun tradition all year if you’d like.

Hip Tips:

    • If you’re concerned about small animals getting into snacks, consider using a small cooler instead. You could also use a small cooler for cold drinks if you’re in warmer weather like me.
    • Consider using a laminator machine on the FREE printable so it will last longer outdoors.

My basket has been a success!

On a personal note, this basket has been on my porch for 2 holiday seasons and it’s really FUN to watch and hear on our outdoor Nest camera. The drivers have always been so appreciative and some of them yell out “Thank You!” and a few have come back to leave a sweet thank you note! 😍

    I’ve been putting treats and water bottles on my front step for several years now for UPS, FED EX, USPS and also Schwan’s. I put the basket out daily between Black Friday and Christmas Eve. My sign isn’t as pretty as yours, but my drivers were pretty shy about taking stuff, and in past years they have taken very little. So this year I amended my note to tell them to help themselves as often as they’d like. A lot more treats are being taken this year and I love it! I try to notice what they take the most so I can have things they enjoy. Beef jerky is by far and away the biggest hit with my drivers!!!

      That’s so wonderful!

    I am home for 99% of our home deliveries. If UPS and Fed Ex Knock, I tip them right then and there if they haven’t left before I get to the door. I appreciate them knocking cause I live in an apt building and it’s less stressful not having to wonder “what if” someone takes my packages. Our mail carrier will get they appreciation gesture from us at Xmas time. We’ve had a wonderful carrier for some time now.

  3. ChrisDan

    I FINALLY printed your sign and put out drinks and snacks. THANK YOU for such an awesome act of kindness! I appreciate all of your hard work. Blessings to you all this holiday season!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that’s so neat! Thanks for sharing, and for the sweet comment!

  4. katie

    I remember seeing a post like this last year and I read through the comments and I was shocked at how mean people were. Saying why should they get a treat, they are just doing their job. As a wife of a UPSer it is so stressful and crazy hours and yes, we all signed up for this – but kindness matters. And it goes a long way. I am glad drivers get recognition, I wish they guys in the office did too. Thanks for all you kind words this year. We love our delivery people!

  5. Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

    Thanks Katie! I agree, this is so small, but could make someone’s day!

  6. Ash

    I would totally do this if they brought my packages to my house instead of leaving them on top my mailbox and everyone else’s! That’s a great idea!

  7. Layner

    Not sure if this has already been asked, but has anyone had animals get into the snacks they leave out? I’m not home during the day, so I want to be able to leave a basket out during the day, but I’m afraid critters may get into the snacks. We have a lot of groundhogs and possums in our area and I dont want them getting into it. I want to display the items in a basket where the delivery drivers can just grab and go because I feel like they may not bother if it’s all in a tub with a lid. Any thoughts??

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya most people with critters are saying they use a little cooler or tub with lid. Sorry if that’s not helpful, but maybe others will have another idea.

    I had one Amazon delivery guy tell me he wanted to hug me but said he wasn’t going to because it was raining and he was soaking wet. Not sure I am going to go out and hug the delivery person (LOL) but I thought it was sweet. He was so excited to get a pack of chips and a granola bar. My husband even commented on how nice the sign was compared to my hand written one I used last year. He thought I made it but I had to fess up and give Hip2Save the credit.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I love everything about this! How fun- thanks for sharing!

    This is such an excellent idea, particularly in light of the coronavirus with folks staying home now. Maybe even provide a container of wipes or hand gel dispenser for the drivers as well.

    • Susie

      Snacks were a great idea when this was originally posted in December, however, with the Coronavirus outbreak I would change the items offered a bit. Perhaps wipes, hand sanitizers, and bottled drinks…nothing they will be touching with their hands and then putting in their mouths. Keep in mind that washing their hands often is not an option for delivery drivers.

  10. ImThatJennay

    This will be my project today. I’ve been meaning to do this for forever! Thanks!

  11. Heidi

    I do this every year for the drivers and they absolutely LOVE it! I have also now started to include the local law enforcement as I live in a same town—- not only does this bring them in your neighborhood but they also appreciate being appreciated too!

    • Jennifer

      Hi. 🙂 I love the idea of extending this to police but I can’t picture how this works. Please help me understand how your police enjoy these snacks. Are they walking by your house and see them from the sidewalk? Truly appreciate your response. Thanks! 🙂

    • Tig

      I would like to hear more. Thanks!

  12. Jstbeachy

    Thx for updating the sign I have a post it note for On Trac delivery drivers too Those drivers bring the Ulta & Sephora deliveries!

  13. kateparker

    THIS IS SO STINKING COOL! How thoughtful and rad! We need more posts like this with easy access to save and print. Thanks so much!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good! Thanks for the feedback ❤️

  14. Mara

    I’m a UPS driver in Indiana and We All appreciate the snacks and water you all have left out!! It made me feel connected to y’all when I saw the hip 2 save sign too!! 😊

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay!! Yes I love hearing that 🥰 Thanks Mara!

  15. Michele

    The baskets are a great idea. Also go to the street after dark and see if your address is visible. Too often people pain their houses and forget to put their numbers back up, or hang decorations over the address.

    I am a whole Foods/Amazon delivery driver! Even though I don’t always take an offering, its greatly appreciated and does make us smile! Thanks for showing this mainstream!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I’m so glad! Thanks for sharing!

    • rebecacha

      I am an Amazon Flex driver and I LOVE the snacks and I always take a little something. It truly warms my heart. I would love to thank the person back and I didnt know how. I am thinking I should carry a little note pad and leave a note to show the customer how much I appreciate their act of kindness! 🙂

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Oh how wonderful!! Yes that be nice. 👏

  17. desiree

    Does no one live in an area where people will just steal the whole basket? I love the idea, but I’ve had so many things stolen right off my front step that it’s pointless. If I catch them in person, I offer but it’s not quite the same

    • roz

      I was thinking the very same thing. You’d have to sit on your porch with a stun gun guarding the goods…
