What are some small things you've brought for

your room host or others you wanted to give a little something extra to?
YES, I know this has been covered a multitude of times...but now it pretains to me. Yes, I know $$ is always good. And we tip well for good service. But I'd like to be a little creative. any ideas?

Maybe international calling cards. I really think money is your best bet. Every stateroom host, well...actually a lot of cast members have families and young children back home. They are sacrificing family time to earn money. Cash is king!

We bring small cellophane bags full of edible treats (microwave popcorn -yes, the crew has microwaves, chocolate bars, gum, and hard candy). I tie it up with ribbon, attach a thank you card, and also their tip envelope. I do this in ADDITION to any extra tip that I add to the envelope, not INSTEAD of. I've always had good feedback from the CMs who have gotten them. On our last cruise, our server said that he'd never received any sort of gift from a guest.
