Treats to leave outside your door to thank busy delivery drivers and postal workers during lockdown


DELIVERY drivers and postal workers have their work cut out right now.

So to say thank you, I have started leaving little treats for them outside my door.

Thank your delivery drivers and postal workers by leaving treats outside your front door

Here are some suggestions in case you fancy doing the same . . .

Refreshing idea: On a hot day, there’s nothing more welcome than a cold drink. But don’t leave out bottles of water.

Highland Spring’s 12-pack of 500ml bottles costs £3 at Tesco. Instead, fill a jug with tap water and ice and pop it on a tray with Asda’s party cups, £1 for 15. Keep the tray in the shade and place a bin next to it to make sure used ones are thrown away and nobody drinks from the same cup.

SAVE: £2

Sweet deal: For something more fun, I put sweets in a bowl outside my door. To keep things hygienic, I always use individually wrapped sweets. Sainsbury’s is currently selling Maoam Stripes, Joystix and MaoMix for £1, down from £1.30.

SAVE: 30p

Smart cookie: I’m currently addicted to three-ingredient peanut butter biscuits, made from peanut butter, golden caster sugar and an egg. They are a great treat to offer round — and not too hard to make. If you’ve got the ingredients lying around, you will save around £1 on buying a packet.

SAVE: Around £1

Have your cake: I’ve ordered in Tesco’s chocolate fudge cake kit, £1.70, which I will cut up into around 15 pieces. That’s way more cost-effective than buying three five-packs of Cadbury’s cake bars, £1.60 each.

SAVE: £3.10
