So I am reading a couple threads on the various gifts left for the staff. To be clear, we always leave cash and gifts. But it seems as though we might be leaving the "wrong" gifts.
What are some of the wonderful dominican people's favorite American (or other countries) gifts to receive from guests besides money? Do they prefer plain Hersey's chocolate to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, for instance? Would they prefer a mini-umbrella versus a scented candle?
Sure hope Mike and Mike can answer when they get a minute - but would love to hear from guests who know as well.
My tidbit is that my wife usually makes Rice Krispie treats for our travel day and in the room. One year we were eating them on the way to the hotel from the airport, so we offered our driver a piece. He was amazed at the taste, never heard of them before, asked us to write down what they were and how we made them, so we gave him the whole batch. His eyes were huge when he realized I was giving him the whole batch and not just another piece. Made my whole trip.
