Servers work extremely hard over the holidays, serving parties and people celebrating, with no days off to celebrate with their family and friends and may need an extra little pick-me-up after all the hours they put in at work.
Here are a few ideas that may help these hard workers get through the busiest and most stressful time of year.
1. A massage
Servers are on their feet all day, bending over backwards to carry plates and trays and could really use a wonderful massage to get out all the stress of the day.
2. Gift certificate to a restaurant
Waiters and waitresses are constantly seeing other people dining out and enjoying their evening, having people serve them and not having to clean up afterwards. I, for one, would love to have that opportunity. Seeing all these people celebrating makes us a little jealous…well, envious. Just a piece of advice, don’t get a gift certificate to the restaurant they work at.
3. A nice bottle of wine
For those servers at fancy restaurants with a nice wine menu, it would be nice to get in on that type of wine-action. A bottle to share with friends over a delicious dinner would mean the world to them!
4. A little getaway
Whether it be just for an evening or an all expenses paid trip to Cuba, every server needs to get away from their job and not have to wait on people hand and foot. Getting away allows us to let go and relax without the worries of work.
I hope this helps and gives you an idea of what a waiter or waitress might really need around Christmas.
