Are gifts for the all inclusive resort staff exceptable/other monetary?

Jump to last reply

I just recently returned from a trip at an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica, though tipping is not required I’m still a happy tipper the staff I encountered worked extremely hard and long hours . In fact most of the money I spent was in tipping. I will be returning soon and I developed an email relationship with some of the staff. I will continue to tip, but I would like to bring them and their children some items from the US. I guess I should be asking them, though I would like for it to be a surprise. I’ve researched how expensive things are we take for granted in the states. Picking up a few items after Christmas sale items to take back is not a problem. Now to my actual question, will the resorts allow the guest to give the staff items? I don’t want to get anyone in trouble or risk them losing their jobs. I still plan to give cash, but I would also like to give a little extra. Just we bring trinkets home from trips I’m sure they like to receive things. Just want to if anyone has done this before?
