    Default Gift idea for stranger

    Am after a gift idea for someone who went above and beyond their customer service role to help me retrieve my photos from a very water logged phone. I will be writing an email to their employer but wanted to get a small gift as a thank you for everything they did for me. Any ideas ladies?

    Depends on where they work as I work for a big retail chain and we aren't allowed to accept anything. Chocolates for him and the flowers for her

    Hmmm I didn't think of that. I also work for a big retailer and we are allowed to accept small gifts but not money. They work for Apple so I wonder what their policy is. That would be super awkward to walk in there with a gift and they couldn't accept it.

    If this is the case maybe you could send in/take in a basket of muffins or donuts with a thank you card. That way they aren't personally accepting a gift but it's still something nice that you can do (and it's just a morning/afternoon tea for the staff).
