Advent {Day 10}: Snack Mix (Gift Idea Series)


Today I’d like to focus on waste management employees {I don’t know the PC term for trashman…sorry!}.

These people serve me in unimaginable ways! I can’t thank them enough for taking care of all the TRASH I don’t want to deal with. Really!
A few years ago when I was asking some friends how to make sure they knew I’d left a gift so it didn’t accidentally get thrown away they said, “You know our trashmen are prisoners, right?” {NOT all are} and I my reply was, and still is, “YEP! Even more of a reason I want to show them extra love especially around Christ birthday!!!” Let give them something to crunch and munch on while they travel around town.

Filling Cans

Snack Mix:

  1. Make snack mix (my favorites are chex mix or muddy buddies) {recipe link(s)}
  2. Place desired colored tissue paper inside
  3. Add snack mix
  4. Place bow on top of the lid or printable tag (click  Girly Lid Tag for free printable)
  5. To be sure they recognize their gift, tie some balloons on the can and place it on top of your trashcan the day of your neighborhood trash pick up. {You don’t want it to accidentally get trashed ;o) } —> not necessarily birthday ones though…

Happy Birthday TrashcanNot too many people remember those who serve them silently {well…as silent as you can be in that noisy truck} so take the time to show your gratitude with a simple gift that will show the love of Christ and make someone feel appreciated.

Do you have any other tints for making sure these early rising, quick workers recognize their gift?
