We are bringing you Etiquette Wednesday on a Thursday this week. I think this will prove just as helpful today as it would have been yesterday–I hope you agree!
It’s always nice this time of year to show the people who help you be your best all year long a little extra gratitude. This could be in the form of a gift, a tip or hand written thank you.
Be sure that any and all thank yous are hand written and not emailed. Whether you are thanking someone for the gift they got you or thanking someone for their services throughout the year, their efforts deserve to be recognized in a thoughtful way.
If you’re wondering who to tip or share some holiday cheer with, here’s a list to get your wheels turning:
School Bus Driver
Coaches, tutors, etc.
Day care service
Nursing home care worker
Mail carriers working for the United States Postal Service are allowed to accept the following items during the holiday season: Snacks and beverages or perishable gifts that are not part of a meal; small gifts that have little intrinsic value (travel mugs, hand warmers, etc…) and are clearly no more than $20 in value.
Mail carriers are not allowed to accept cash gifts, or any other form of currency, including gift cards.
