What Can You Give the Mailman for the Holidays?

Ed O'Keefe writes in his 'Federal Eye: Keeping Tabs on the Government' column in the Washington Post, "Looking to give a gift or tip to your neighborhood letter carrier or postal clerk this holiday season? Keep in mind that the U.S. Postal Service places restrictions on the types of presents they can accept.

"Postal employees may accept gifts valued up to $20, but cannot accept cash, according to a postal spokeswoman.

"Gift cards of up to $20 are also permitted, but the card cannot be redeemable for cash money and must be issued from a single company, not from a bank or shopping mall. Liquor and wine are also prohibited, according to USPS."

Editor's Note: If you can't afford to give a gift, just a sincere 'thank you'  (and maybe a hug) I'm sure would be much appreciated.
