Gift ideas for your delivery drivers
Delivery drivers and mail carriers have been getting an extra workout for the last few years as many people moved their shopping and other services online.
Now, as we dive deep into the holiday shopping season, they are shifting into overdrive—so to speak. Wouldn’t it be nice to brighten their day with a little treat? Afterall, they are usually delivering joy to your house, maybe you can give a little joy back in return.
Consider setting up a gift basket by your front door with a sign thanking your courier crew and encouraging them to take a treat for the road. Just about any sort of thoughtful gift will be appreciated, but here are some suggestions that show you are truly thankful their nearly daily trips to your door.
It’s almost never the wrong choice to give someone a nourishing treat as a thank you gift. And the last thing you want is a hangry delivery person who might be tempted to hastily toss your package on the porch instead of treating it with their usual care.
Consider filling your basket with individually wrapped homemade goodies or a variety of other snacks like prepackaged candy, energy bars or protein bars that will provide fuel for the rest of the day. Nutrilite™ Wellness Bars are a great grab-and-go option and are filled with wholesome ingredients.
XS™ Sports Protein Bars can also be added to the basket. They are just what a delivery person needs after a day of getting in and out of their vehicle dashing to doors. Mail carriers can appreciate it, too, as they trudge from door to door.

Give them some liquid energy
Sure, they likely have water bottles stashed in their truck or van, but an ice-cold energy drink is a thoughtful gift and might be a welcome change from the lukewarm water in their cupholder. Fill a cooler with XS Energy Drinks. They come in several flavors and varieties with different features including sparkling, real fruit juice, caffeinated or caffeine-free.
If you don’t have a way to keep them cold, consider a variety of mix-ins that will add refreshing flavor and extra hydration to their water bottle. XS CocoWater Hydration Drink Mixes come in handy little packets and can help replenish their electrolytes and provide vitamins A, C and E.
Want to support their health? Consider adding some Nutrilite Twist Tubes 2GO™. The different varieties provide nutrients to support their immune systems or joint health—always a good idea for someone on the move all day.

Help them battle germs
In and out of their vehicle and in and out of buildings, depending on their delivery route, means that delivery people have the potential to encounter scads of germs. Consider gifting individually wrapped masks and small bottles of hand sanitizer. Alternatively, have a larger bottle available for them use as they drop off your delivery.
G&H Protect+™ Advanced Hand Sanitizer with Pro-Vitamin B5 has a non-drying formula that kills 99.99% of common germs and bacteria on the skin’s surface. It also has aloe essence to help keep skin soft and moisturized.
Help them keep their vehicle clean
Delivery drivers basically live out of their vehicle all day long. The chance for mishaps with food or drink is high. And the constant opening and closing of the door allows outdoor dust and grime to get inside. They are sure to appreciate a pack of easy-to-use wipes to help keep their mobile living area clean and fresh!
Amway Home™ L.O.C.™ Multi-Purpose Wipes are super portable and easy to stash in the console or glove box to always have at the ready. They are as safe to use as water for any washable items or surfaces. Pursue™ Disinfectant Cleaning Wipes do double duty by killing bacteria and viruses while cleaning surfaces.
Help them keep take care of their hands and lips
Going in and out of the elements all day will do a number on their lips and hands—whether or not they’re wearing gloves. Add a little TLC to your gift basket so they can take care of themselves.
Add tubes of lip balm and lotion to your gift basket. G&H Nourish+™ Hand Cream helps restore and improve skin so their hands look healthy and feel soft and conditioned—plus, the water resistant formula means their hands will feel soft and moisturized even after hand washing!

Give them some warmth
Hand warmers are a great addition to your gift basket and would be especially appreciated by the mail carriers on a foot route in the northern climates.
Want to go all out? Set up an urn of hot water next to tea bags and hot cocoa mix. Or mix the cocoa up and have it in a large thermos with biodegradable or compostable insulated cups. It just might be the thing that puts a smile on their face after a long day on the road.
