I order many things online and get lots of packages. I really like my mailman. Is there something nice I can do for him?

I seem to get most packages via USPS, and I'd like to thank my mailman. He always knocks and waits for me to come to the door, he's always friendly.
Should I wait until the holidays and give him a card with some cash or a gift card inside? How much is a nice gift?
Is there something I could do for him now, instead of waiting? Call his supervisor or something like that?
I get some packages via Fedex / UPS, but I'll wait until the holidays and give cash or a giftcard; what's a good amount, and is cash or a giftcard better? I'd probably go with somewhere generic like Target.
I have never tipped a mail person before so I'm totally clueless here. I live in Los Angeles, CA in case it is relevant.
