Letter carrier: The U.S. Postal Service forbids mail carriers from accepting cash, and says gifts must be less than $20 in value. Therefore, a gift card or any kind of sweet treat is acceptable. However, some mail carriers are saying that a letter to a supervisor praising them would mean even more than a gift. It's a great way to go that extra step and really show you care.(Credit: iStock)
