What kind of things are good to take as 'tips' for the Maids etc?

When I have gone to Mexico (leaving soon for P.C.) I always took money... I would leave a few dollars a day.

Money is the best. If you give any other gifts besides money you will have to give them a note saying you are giving them a gift.,otherwise they probably won't get it of the resort. We met a local on the beach who took us on a tour of Higuey. We gave him a big tip at the end of the day, which he greatly appreciated. On our last day we met him on the beach and he asked us if we had any leftover shampoo, toothpaste, etc. and if we would give it to him as it is very expensive to buy. But he asked us to write him a note that we were giving him this stuff, because if he got caught with it he said he would be in alot of trouble.
