                       LAST-MINUTE HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS

When purchasing gifts to have on-hand for the mailman, doorman or the host/hostess of
your next party, look for small colorful items and package them nicely. According to
Office Depot Gift-Giving Expert Hillary Mendelsohn, a noted shopping authority and
best-selling author, these small “thank you” gestures pack a punch when delivered with
a little thought and care.
