    Extra gift in addition to $$ for housekeeper

    In addition to leaving tips for housekeeping staff at your resort, do you ever leave anything else (i am not talking about leftover food) ?

    Aside from $$ tip, we have left some little things for our housekeeper just as a special thank you...

    we have left some bath and body works products (in particular the mini hand sanitizers), a few skeins of yarn and a crochet hook (i taught her to crochet a year before). once, an aruba friend gave me a coupon for a BOGO at a nail salon...I took our housekeeper and we each got pedicures.


    sometimes, to some of us, our housekeepers become our friends and it is nice to do a little extra.

    We leave 5-10 daily depending what we need, sometimes we just need towels and dont get our room cleaned....We gave 2 bottles of unopened rum/vodka once but I don't know if they were appreciated or not.

    We always talk about bringing something very Jersey, but haven't done so yet. Maybe this year. Either Taylor ham or Salt Water Taffy.

    I hadn't considered that before, but it's a great idea!
