    Tipping your housekeeper.....

    Along with cash, do you ever leave your resort housekeeper anything different?
    (such as a momento from your hometown, ball cap, baked goods, personal items etc.. ?)

    Aside from cash and leaving unopened food/beverage items from our visit, i don't think we have every given anything other than cash.

    I pretty much did the same: leaving some cash and unopened food for the housekeeper.

    But I brought little presents for the owners of the apartment, like a CD with Caribbean music from Haiti which I found at our mall and fell in love with. They really liked it and played it during Happy Hour.

    Our timeshare friends leave us their leftovers and we leave ours for other friends.

    Housekeeping get cash - all our Aruban money and USD to make the total tip.

    Cash and we tip daily...... never sure what day the regular housekeeper will be off and it wouldn't be fair for the relief housekeeper to get the total tip.

    Our housekeeper is cute, she always lets us know when she is having a day off and when she will return. Usually we tip her daily with a larger tip at end of our trip, however, I know she is retiring the end of this year so may bring her a pretty pin of some kind. I have given small gifts to bartenders and wait staff in the past, nothing expensive just to say thanks. We also donate all our hard cover/paperback books to the library at our resort when we leave.

    I'm boring - I've only tipped in cash & leftover, unopened food. (there is never any left over drinks!)
