    Default Chocolates, candies, & School supplies

    We were reading on the "wish I had thought of that" thread about the Chocolates, candies, & school supplies. Our question is, who do you give the stuff to? How do you distribute the "gifts"? We understand it's in lieu of tipping the staff that can't accept cash tips, just not sure of the protocol. This will be our first trip in just a few weeks!

    Hi VaCouple, We generally leave chocolates out in our room everyday for the housekeepers. I also take chocolate to our favorite staff members. As for the school supplies at CSS I know you can leave them with the front desk staff and I know that they will get distributed. Have a wonderful trip!

    Thanks for the help. How does the housekeeper know they are for them if you leave them out in the room?

    My wife took peanut M&M's in the fun size and "gave them out like candy"!

    She left them on the bed for the cleaning lady, gave them to people working at the bar, restaurants, just about anyone she saw. They were very appreciative.
