This Flight Attendant’s Top Five Gifts

As a flight attendant it really makes our day when we get little gifts from our passengers. I’m not saying that giving a gift will get you an upgrade or a free drink but you never know. 😉

  1. Hand Sanitizer – We work on these planes day in and day out. Sometimes our passengers aren’t 100% healthy. Getting a travel size hand sanitizer not only helps to keep us healthy but our passengers healthy.
  2. Sealed Snack – As much as we would love to take a handful of M&Ms from your giant family size bag, it is not the most sanitary thing (no offense). A snack that has been sealed will ensure us it has not been tampered with and we can read the ingredients on the packaging should we have any food allergies.
  3. Gift Card – The airline industry runs off of jet fuel and coffee and Starbucks gift cards are key. Really any gift card will do but something as small as a $5 gift card will really make a flight crew’s day (especially around holidays).
  4. Lip Balm – Traveling all the time and going up and down in altitude all day can work a number on our lips. A new chapstick or bert’s bees is always nice.
  5. Card – Hand written notes seem to be a rare thing now days with technology being our primary form of communication. Whether it’s a note written on a napkin or a Hallmark card, it is a pleasant surprise and can make a flight attendant’s day to get a nice little thank you.

We don’t always get gifts while we work but it always nice. When I travel as a passenger I like to give the working crew something small. Just something to think about. 😉
