    Gift for helpful staff?

    Does anyone have any ideas for something I could bring to a female staff member at the Tamarijn for being so helpful over the years? I've asked her what she would like and she won't tell me, but I'd like to get her something from where I live (Atlanta) maybe? I am at a loss and would love your ideas. Thank you in advance!

    Smile Gift Ideas

    I used 'Aruba Gift Express' (online website) to buy the housekeeper a nice gourmet basket. she was wonderfull. Next week my brother and future wife are traveling to aruba for their honeymoon I already arranged a nice bottle of champagne for them. the website has many things to offer and their service is great

    One thing that comes to mind, other than cash which is what I give our housekeeper, are ornaments from your state. I was in London a number of years ago and had an opportunity to vist my office. After corresponding with a number of the admins over the years, I purchaed some Texas Christmas ornaments that were easy to pack and distributed them at a luncheon that everyone attended. They were a big success. Just a thought.
