I have to chuckle since, as I was reading this thread, I was going to suggest that.

So many people ask, "What can we do for our room steward?" Ordering a basket from Shirley and telling her that, ultimately, you are going to give it to your room person, or table server, or whomever, will help her tailor a gift for the crew person(s) in mind AND it saves you the hassle of bringing something on board or do shopping.

It's a great way to say to the cast members, "You did a GREAT job and I appreciate you!"

They say that there's one person meant to be with you... I think mine either got hit by a truck or fell down a well and forgot who they were looking for!

Just keep in mind that the CM's have VERY limited room to put things, so chances are if it's not edible it will eventually end up in the garbage since there's no room to store even small things.

We've sent one of Shirley's wonderful baskets to our favorite crew member (Tito, who works are what my daughter likes to call "The Disney Store" on the ship). Shirley did up a terrific edible basket, for which Tito was very thankful for. I agree that you definitely want to go "edible" due to the lack of space the crew have. I think a basket from Shirley is a great idea for a crew member - her baskets are great and the crew member will really appreciate it!

I have a couple of things I wanted to say - first crew member's gift baskets - my BIGGEST suggestions is there is a place in the mall that these young folks visit very often for it offers so much of their homeland there and one of the things I do know for sure that they love gift cards from this place - I don't remember the name since I am at home and the info is at work so will post it when I get there.
Second I don't know of a crew member that rather have monies than gift baskets - their rooms are small and you can eat so much fruit or candies.
NOW THIS IS JUST A SUGGESTION FOR CREW MEMBERS OK?

Third
gift baskets can be made of any theme if there is enough time and if we can't get it, we tell that our customers that they are allowed to send several items to make it more personalable and it does save monies for you.
Third we do try to keep our gift baskets reasonable even though everything has gone up so much for everyone.
Have a great time on your cruise
Always
Me

I did! Shirley made a very nice "bag" of Bears, White Sox & Blackhawks items for my husband's birthday. He was very surprised and pleased. I also had her include his favortie candy, snacks and Pepsi.

How far in advance can we order? I see people ordering on fairly short notice, but I'm an anal-retentive-type-A planner...I can't possibly wait until 4 days out to place my order, lol. On the other hand, I realize ordering too far out could cause problems. Shirley, what's your ideal order time?
Shirley? Ideal order timeframe? 2 weeks out? A month? What works best for you?

Thanks!

Thanks so much for the ideas...I actually asked about the baskets for crew members cause I have a daughter on board with a birthday coming..I wasn't sure if we were allowed to send baskets to crew on board.....I 've sent her a gift but it's her 21st and want to make it extra special since her folks can't be there.....a basket would be such a surprise! Her birthday's the end of the month. I don't think they're allowed to have fruit in their rooms, not sure but she loves candy and trinkets and Disney Characters and drinkables..haha, but I'll give Shirley's a call soon. Thanks again!

One of the things I wanted to mention to you about your daughter - you are most welcomed to send me a couple of items down to me so that it will be more personable and I don't charge anything to include them in the baskets.
My sincere pleasure
Always
Shirley

Best if you cannot decide contact Shirley by email and give her details of your kids ages and likes nad dislikes she will give you advice, and they will be good, my kids will have theirs in two weeks time!

Check the website for pics.

We ordered baskets for our last cruise and they were lovely! The whole process was very easy. Based on my requests: For pirates night they had glow sticks, tattoos, gold earring and eye patch; some "movie candy" to take to shows; some Diet Dr. Pepper (DCL only has Coke products); and some almonds/cashews. They even located some natural white cheddar puffs for DD!
