If you live in the US go on a shopping spree at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross or one of the outlet shops and buy heavily discounted designer cologne, designer clothing off the clearance rack and designer accessories. You can bring really nice gifts for a dozen people for under $200 US.

I brought a bottle of Dior cologne for the front desk guy who always gets me the best accommodations where I stay and he's still smiling. It cost $14 at Marshalls ($35 at the Duty Free).

Good idea and sometimes they advertise designer fragrance and clothing liquidation sales in the local news papers... They have them once every couple of months at the sports arena close to where I live... they must have em elsewhere too. You can get Givenchy and Dior etc.. for less than $20 a bottle. They sell cosmetics and other beauty products too. When I come down I always bring toiletries and children's clothing new and gently used.

One thing that is always very welcome [for women] are products from Bath & Body Works. Sometimes they have great online sales. Everyone knows the products, which aren't readily available in DR [I heard they are finally sold in some stores]. Most popular are the bath gels, body lotion, fragrance sprays. Stick with the vanilla scents, there are several of them.

Thank you to all of your with "reasonable" response ~ I guess toiletries are the way to go!
