Gifts for kid club CMs

I read the Cms in the kids club aren't allowed tips. If there are some special ones that the kids love what could we give as gifts - gift cards? I've read candy, but if I was in their place i would appreciate the gesture but I don't know if I'd enjoy all that extra candy.

Anything given to the kids club CMs is required to be pooled and used for a kids club CM staff party - cash, gift cards, candy, small gifts, etc. Non-monetary items are used as raffle/door prizes. The reason being that multiple CMs will interact with your children, not just one. I don't think there is a way to give anything directly to one CM. Maybe your child could make a card expressing his/her gratitude? It's only a gesture of appreciation, but I don't believe a CM would be allowed to keep anything more tangible for him/herself.

Enjoy your cruise!

I believe if you write the CMs name on the gift they are allowed to accept it (we have done this with small gift items and were told that if their name is marked on it they can keep it but that otherwise it is turned in for door prizes at staff parties.

Everything is pooled no matter what. I know that when the kids have gone with me to deliver a big bag of individual candy the reactions of the YCs at the desk was definitely that of appreciation. It wasn't busy and a couple of others saw the excitement and came over as well.

I was talking to some CMs from the shops and they were telling me they had big plans for Wal-mart in LA to try to stock up on cookies and snacks for their rooms. I asked if they could have microwave popcorn and they said yes, but that it was a long way to the galley and they'd really rather have prepackaged snacks for their rooms. One also said he loves magazines (fancy ones like Vogue or Country Living) and would love it if someone gave him those.

I don't think there is anything wrong with giving the gift cards or cash that has to be pooled. Your favorite CM might win it!

I usually collect most if not all of the FE candy/treats and give it to the YCs at the end of our cruises. They always seem very excite!
