USPS Mail Carriers
There are rules regarding gifts for USPS mail carriers. I'll quote them from the a USPS article.
While many Postal Service™ customers have traditionally thanked their mail carrier with gifts of cash during the holiday season, this practice puts our employees at risk of violating federal law. The Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch ("Standards"), specifies that Postal Service employees may not accept gifts from outside sources (including Postal Service customers) or gifts given to them because of their official positions. Postal Service employees are also prohibited from soliciting gifts from outside sources.
There are a number of exceptions and exclusions to the general gifts rule . Postal Service employees may accept the following items:
Postal Service employees may not accept cash - in any amount or form (bills, checks, money orders) - from an outside source.
