    Bringing Gifts to Aruba

    HI All! We are going to Aruba this week (Yea!!) and wanted to bring a gift to Miss Petty, the LaCabana timeshare lady. Three questions: Does anyone know if she is still at LaCabana? (She used to be on the beach, but last time we were there, she had been moved to inside the lobby.) Is it even appropriate to bring her a gift? (We tried to tip her once and she adamantly refused and said we would get her fired!) What is a good gift? (Perhaps something they don't have there.) Thanks for your help!

    I would also like to take gifts for room attendants, condo owner, etcetera. Is there anything here in the US that is common, but hard to find or buy in Aruba? I'm looking for something that would be very much appreciated by the staff. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Make sure that whatever gifts you bring are not wrapped until you arrive on the island because the TSA unwrapped all of our pretty little packages to check them out even tho they were in our checked luggage. Had to go out, buy paper and re-wrap everything.

    We have a female who we usually give cash who we would like get something special. Perhaps just a big bunch of vitamins since she says they are difficult for ther to get. The other person we shop for is very easy, I know one of his newer passions.

    Lisa, we will need ideas for "you know who' when we arrive in aruba. Any ideas what might be needed, or suitable for family or son?
