I thought the CL CM's were a part of the IPO.

The IPO for WL is located at the Poly; the IPO for BWI and YC is located at BC, I believe; the AKL IPO is located at AKL; and the CR IPO is located at the GF. All the resorts share an IPO team, except AKL. If you're staying in the same resort as the IPO or want to make a trip over to see them, you could ask a CL concierge where the IPO staff's office is so that you can give a gift to them yourself (I assume this would be allowed?) or you could even email the IPO and ask them. If a particular IPO CM has been helpful, just make sure that you put their name on the gift, which I believe can't exceed $75 in value.

Lol, I was thinking this too! and the tastykakes, maybe Utzs , herrs or Martins potato chips and some freshly baked PA dutch pretzels? PA has lots of food options! Oh, maybe a bottle of wine from a local vineyard?

I went with local chocolate. I debated wine/beer but had no way to get it through bag check. Plus I was worried about people who don't drink.

I'm a fan of bringing a gift that's regional and can be shared. Being from NH I usually bring a bunch of maple candy for the club CMs to share. There are a couple CMs who have really gone REALLY far out of their way for us and we tend to bring some additional maple sugar and other maple products for them.

This is in addition to a letter after our trip to Guest Communications detailing how wonderful the CMs have been.

CMs are not allowed to accept alcohol as gifts.

Have heard they are required to get rid of it. Not take home but to pour it out.

Wouldn't want to see your gift going down the drain.

Can't wait to bring my NYC goodies to the CL CM's.

But let me get this straight. I should bring two gifts. One for the IPO and one for the YC concierge staff.

BUT, In order to give the IPO their gift, I have to go to BC? Where in the BC? Or can I have it sent from YC Concierge (If I gave it to YC CL staff to SEND to IPO?) Just trying to get my ducks in a row! I'm excited to give them sweet treats from NYC!

This past December we did a 4 night cruise on the Dream and then spent 4 nights at AKL. I took Wilbur Buds for the stateroom host and the staff at the club level desk.

Wilbur Buds look like Hershey Kisses but are much better (in my opinion) and come from the Wilbur Chocolate Factory in Lititiz, PA. They come in milk and dark chocolate.

This is a resurrected thread (back from the dead), so this might have already been posted...you aren't obligated to give gifts to any CL CMs - some guests do, particularly when wanting to personally thank certain CMs who have gone above and beyond.

I only posted about the IPO staff being located at some of the resorts because someone asked about giving the IPO staff a gift, but frankly, I had not heard of guests giving IPO staff gifts. If you would like to, the easiest way would be to simply give it to the CL staff and ask that they pass the gift along to the IPO staff, which depending on where you're staying, may or may not be in your resort (see post 16).

Thanks. I had every intention to give a gift, no obligation for me. I just didn't realize that iPo and CL were two different areas (silly me thinking they're all one in the same) I just wanted to understand how best to thank all that helped. Thank you for clarifying that for me.

I never give anything to IPO. I only tried using them once and they were completely unhelpful. CL CMs at Poly on the other hand have come to feel almost like family and really bend over backwards to make our stays special so we like to do a little something for them.
