I've thought of doing so too but there was an incident lately that made me think twice. Perhaps I am over sensitive.

I was in Hermes a couple of days ago wearing a pocket square. This pocket square is a limited edition for a newly refurbished store.

My SA says "Isn't it cute, I got one too."
I said "Wanna get one more for a friend but it is all sold out. "
SA: "One of my clients gave me, she bought 18, ha ha ha ha ha"

:huh: :huh: :huh:

I am feeling a bit torn about sending gifts. I thought about it and then I was reminded of how I was treated at times. Shouldn't SAs be sending US gifts for all that we put up with to get a bag? :P

How much is a pocket square? In my store, there is a strict $100 limit on gifts and it just makes the SAs uncomfortable if you go overboard.

:wtf: there's actually a limit on how much SA's can be given? Which makes me think that there are lots of customers who are giving a lot more which makes them come up with this policy. IMO.

I usually pop by the store, buy a scarf (another scarf!) and look around and not ask for anything else. I'll get them a nice big box of chocolates that they can have with coffee.

Kou, if you feel you have not received good service from the SA or store throughout the year, you should not send anything. I believe holiday gifts or tips to anyone in the service industry is to thank them for good service and a job well done throughout the year.

I can't believe they allow anything! I tried to give Caroline a pair of pink gold stud earrings I handmade for her and she had to send them back. :sad:
