Are you feeling the Christmas spirit yet? If the brilliant parols lining up the streets and the cheerful Jose Mari Chan songs aren’t enough to bring in holiday cheer, then may we remind you that ‘tis also the season of giving.
Maybe you’ve started online shopping for your monito or monita. Maybe you’ve already set aside your 13th month pay for a grand gift to a loved one. Then why not take your generosity a step further by surprising delivery riders with gifts?
Obviously, you don’t need to spend a fortune on this; simple but thoughtful gifts for delivery riders can go a long way. Hopefully, this act of generosity would also brighten up their days as they spend hours making Christmas gift deliveries possible.
Not sure what to give them? Here are some ideas.
Simple but thoughtful gifts for delivery riders
1. COVID-19 care packages
As frontliners during the pandemic, riders risk their safety to deliver goods across the country. So, a gift basket carrying COVID-19 essentials would communicate that you want them to stay safe.
What to include
2. Snacks and candies
3. Handmade soap
Handmade soap makes a good gift for various reasons: it’s sustainable, affordable, practical, and — especially during this pandemic — essential. Not to mention, natural soap looks unique, too! Plus, they’re easily available on Shopee.
Take for example this handmade soap bar, which proudly carries the name, “Sabon Para sa mga Nagtitipid.” This artisan brand is not only effective, but funny, too! If all goes well, it might even lighten up a delivery rider’s day.
Maybe you’re not keen on receiving towels for Christmas. But if you spend hours on the road, you might actually need one. Like it or not, towels are always practical — and, when packaged properly, they can be great Christmas gifts!
You don’t even need to wrap the towels yourself. You can buy them already wrapped and ready for gifting. Check out this three-in-one towel set which includes a bath towel, a face towel, and a hand towel. If you’re feeling fancy, you can also order this inabel hand towel souvenir which surprisingly doesn’t cost much for its quality!
5. Mini calendar
If you want to give something that’ll last for a whole year, then consider this mini 2022 calendar. Everyone can benefit from having a calendar. And, since this one is handy, delivery riders won’t find it challenging to carry around.
These gifts for delivery riders may not be lavish, but rest assured most people would find joy in receiving unexpected tokens of appreciation. If you have the time, you can even pen a letter to greet them with a merry Christmas!
There’s nothing like this season to remind us of our shared humanity. We hope this act of generosity will also lift your spirits!
