The chocolates - put together with that "homemade Christmas fudge" poem would be cute. And chocolates are BROWN!

That is so perfect!

I do always give food gifts to my mail carrier. She is always so appreciative of them, too, and writes me a personal thank you!

My brother's personal favorite (he's a mail carrier), is FRANGOS. One year, he received quite a number of those and he was in chocolate heaven!

I'm so glad you asked this question! I was wondering the same thing - we recently moved into an apartment and live on the third floor (no elevator..just stairs!!!) Our poor UPS man! The week and a half after Thanksgiving he was here EVERYDAY lugging packages (SU and other things ordered) to our door.

I think the Christmas "fudge" idea is wonderful. I'm sure anything like that would be appreciated

Can I make an input for next year? Here's what I did...I am also on the top floor with no elevator. So I bought him a little set from The Swiss Colony....actually, it was a pack of 6 individually wrapped gifts so you have 6 gifts...but I digress.

Anyway, it's a little package of a beef sausage roll, a Colby cheese log, and a mini torte. He was SO happy to get it! I felt like Santa.

But for this year....Mmmm....chocolate!

Default What to give Brown

Our UPS guy is Jimmy. He came the other night with my new computer! He had given us his cell ph # in case we had electronics expected several months back. So, I got in tough with him Thursday to see if he would deliver after I came home from work. He said no problem.

Me & DH brainstormed about what to do - I thought thank you card, tin of butter cookies - DH said no that's not thougthful. Homemade cookies are better. So, I raced home hoping he would allow me to make them have them cool and packaged up before he came. I also had an extra 'Christmas Fudge' large Hershey bar to give him. Just put a dozen cookies in the disposable ziploc container & put organdy ribbon around it.

He came 1 1/2 hours later - plenty of time! I can't remember the last time I had given someone something and they were TRULY grateful. It was awesome! I told him it was a gift in appreciation of taking care of us with our packages. He said several times he was going to cry and it was so nice. He even gave me a hug & he is a HUNK and a half!! Too bad I didn't get spruced up before!. Anyway, he was so grateful & it made me wonder if no one else does that for him.

So, perhaps whatever you decide to do - you may just make their day like I did for Jimmy

I made my UPS guy a "Winter Survival Kit." In it I put, Kleenex, hot chocolate, a can of soup, Chap-stick, cough drops, dry skin lotion, etc. He was so excited when he saw what it was. He's a great guy who goes out of his way to be nice and is always smiling!
Hope this helps!

WOW! OK now I have too many to choose from LOL. THANK YOU so much for all of the ideas! I still don't even know his name yet and we have been here almost 8 years now. I hope I can catch him before he runs off to his next delivery, so I can get his name.
Thank you again Ladies, you are a great source of info!!

Default Christmas Fudge

Does anyone have the Homemade Christmas Fudge poem? I always make fudge for our mail carrier and if I had the poem it would be better.

Thanks for your help!

OH what a great question! I love my UPS man...he's such a doll baby. I know I have shared my love and affection before. Trust me...my husband understands. I mean really what could be better than a good looking man, in uniform, that gives you packages, then leaves without having to pick up after him or wash his unders?
I think the Christmas Fudge gift is going to be the "IT" project for the year!
