Do you "GIFT" CM's at your resort?

Do you gift any of the tipped or non tipped CM's at your resort? Items other than cash? Looking for some ideas for the extra special CM's we encounter.


I know you can only give cash tips to mousekeepers/bartenders/wait staff.

1) When people mention GREAT service, it is always nice top hear.
2) As a Concierge, we can't take money, BUT GIFTS ARE GLADLY RECEIVED
3) Things we like
. . . gas cards
. . . watches, especially from Cartier or Tiffany
. . . homemade goodies or novelties
. . . jewelry trinkets, preferably 1/2-carat or larger
4) Things which we can get from Disney for free, so pass on these
. . . pens and pencils
. . . writing or note tablets
. . . pins

NOTE: Only kidding about the about the 1/2-carat. Something like a 1/4 -carat is fine.

I have seen cards that people printed up (business card sized) that say something like "THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR VACATION EXTRA MAGICAL" and it has the family's name or general first names on it. My friend worked on DCL and received a few over his time and he pinned them to his wall - really made him smile!

I know it's not much, but I also know as someone who worked in customer service, I would've loved something small like that to make my day!!!

If someone has done something special for us we make a point of getting their name, noting the date and place and filling out a card at guest relations for them.

My daughter is very arty and loves drawing and making cards. She likes to make thank you cards for the CM's at the front desk of our resort - general ones for them all. I am a bit unclear on the official policy of gifting with Disney and a thank you and passing a compliment 'higher up' is a nice gesture.

Rusty Scrapper had a great list going - it's just not in my budget

Great ideas! I love the personal touch.
I won't forget the 1/2 ct earrings that RustyScupper suggests.
