The holidays are about coming together and giving thanks. Take any Christmas classic and you’ll find that message. The jolly Whoville people and the mean, old Grinch, the bitter Ebenezer Scrooge and the generous Cratchits, even noble Rudolph and his judgmental fellow reindeers all came together in the end (despite them calling out his red nose!). This year, however, “coming together” is going to look a little different, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give thanks especially to those who deserve it.

Think about all the people who make your life easier– your hairdresser, dog walker, babysitter, or child’s teacher. Thanks to all the hard work they do, you can enjoy a little free time to yourself or stress a little less about your children. This year, more than ever, it’s important to recognize their efforts with a holiday tip.

You can spread joy, without spreading germs, by sending them the appropriate tip accompanied by a meaningful postcard. Download these free holiday printables to give to a service worker this holiday season!
