I give sbx gift cards to all the people I "depend on". Just like $5, it's easy to pick up around 15 or so and just hand out as you come across people. It's a nice and low cost gesture of gratitude.

M1 - I really like your idea of buying a bunch of $5 cards and having them ready to give out. Thanks for sharing that!!

I ship everything to the office. The week after BF/Cyber Monday the mailroom was filled to the brim with everyone's shopping. I'm thinking it would be appropriate to leave something to thank them for the extra time and work to sort through personal packages, but I'm curious if anyone else does this and what you leave.

OP, since the mailroom is staffed by. Third party vendor that pays squat, I think they’d appreciate it greatly.

^^ yup. I do this as well.

Sure. Sounds like a nice gesture
