Protocol for Giving your TA a gift??

Just wondering as I have just booked our first trip to WDW , and the lovely lady who is our TA was so extremely helpful if it's OK to send her a little gift ?? We are from a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada and I thought we may get her a few little things from here?? Is it common to give your TA a small gift or just weird?? I've looked all over the disboards and haven't found any answers!! Any help is welcome!!

I would probably not send a gift. A nice note might be nice, though.

Next trip .... 10/9/14 for my birthday!

I think you are very thoughtful. Good TAs can work very hard and are often not appreciated.

By the way - I am Canadian too.

Last trip...WDW Port Orleans French Quarter and DCL Disney Fantasy September 2013

I had been a bookkeeper for a travel agency and saw how thrilled the agents were when they received gifts from their clients.

I always bring back a gift for our TA. And, when I used DU, I sent a few Restaurant.com gift certificates to our DU agent. She was very appreciative!
