A Gold Coast man has given a massive shout out to his local Bunnings team on social media for the thoughtful surprise in his letterbox on Monday.

“I would love to give a big shout out to Bunnings Warehouse Pimpama and the staff member who put this in our mail box for our Christmas light display on Adelaide Crescent, Ormeau Hills. You are truly an amazing person,” wrote the Ormeau Hills man on a popular Facebook page.

Alongside the post, the man shared two photos of the sweet note and $10 Bunnings gift card he received in the letterbox.
