A guest post from my friend Melanie at Plan for Awesome!
Print out this free printable thank you sign for your USPS, FedEx, UPS, Amazon, Whoever Delivery Person, and leave them snacks to show your appreciation! This is a super cute and easy way to spread holiday cheer and #LightTheWorld.
I saw this idea on Pinterest a couple years ago and thought it was so dang cute!! I couldn’t find the original printable I saw, so I decided to make my own and make it available on my website.
The idea is, to leave a bucket/basket of drinks and/or snacks on your porch to show appreciation for the people who deliver your packages during the busy holiday season.

SUCH an EASY way to #LightTheWorld
I love the concept of the #LightTheWorld initiative that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has been doing for the past few years, and I absolutely love how this little bucket of snacks can light a variety of people’s days.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
I used a metal galvanized container like this 2-pack on Amazon (affiliate link), but really anything would work. I like the height of the sides of this, because it protects the contents from the wind and weather. I liked this large-ish size, because I wanted to offer a variety of things in my bucket. But really, this is all up to you.
For the drinks, I decided to put the following:
- Diet Coke
- Orange Crush
- Chocolate Milk (the kind that doesn’t need to be refrigerated)
- Chocolate Chip Granola Bars
- Nature’s Valley Granola Bars
- Bags of Chips
- Fruit Snacks
- I haven’t been to the store yet, but I think little packs of beef jerky would be cool to put out there!
GET YOUR FREE PRINTABLE SIGN
**I would recommend printing this on white card stock (affiliate link)**
I made this sign in 2 different sizes…the first download has 2 per page, so each one takes up a half-sheet. This will be easier if you plan on taping it to the bucket/basket you put the snacks in. I put 2 copies on there, to make good use of your paper, so give the second one to a friend (or save it in case the first one gets ruined by rain or snow).
The second one is a full page, and would work well if you are going to tape the sign to your front door or the wall of your porch.
Merry Christmas friends! Let’s spread some light and joy this season. If you’re looking for more service ideas to do with your family you can check out my Light the World Challenges.
