Gifts Accepted by Jamaicans

QUESTION:

Greetings from Canada!

I'll be coming to Runaway Bay in 2 weeks. This is my first trip to Jamaica. Some of the all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica have a "no tipping allowed/required" policy.

My last trip was to Cuba and even though they could take tips, the resort staff really appreciated things they have a difficult time getting or can't afford, such as: kids shoes/clothes, toiletries like shampoo, toothpaste, cosmetics, fishing lures, luxuries like chocolate, candy/gum, school supplies, pens, paper, crayons, panty hose, etc.

What things are expensive and/or hard to come by in Jamaica that I can bring with me to give to staff to show my appreciation for their good service and hard work in place monetary tips?

Your advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Melinda

Hi Melinda,

Indeed, we Jamaicans - and perhaps people in general, always like the rarer and more unusual things.

I understand your plight though as almost every thing in the US (perhaps unlike Cuba) can be found in Jamaica! particularly those you cited.

Having said that, Jamaicans will appreciate anything worthwhile given with a sincere heart!

By the way, thanks for been so considerate - going as far as to ask this question here.

I would say gust give whatever you have and give it sincerely and it will be appreciated my friend. Do enjoy your vacation in Jamaica!
