That’s a fabulous gesture and kudos to you for your generosity; however, not all guests are able or willing to accept gifts, so please take a look at the points below before pouring 2000-man hours of work into that handmade Princess Bride themed afghan that you want to give to Wallace Shawn.
- All gifts must be approved by the agent or representative before being given to the guest
- Food/consumable gifts are not allowed (this includes alcohol)
- Gifts that appear to be menacing or some kind of weaponry will not be allowed
Keep in mind that many guests do not want to accept gifts as it can make getting home somewhat difficult – a giant razor-sharp Freddy Krueger claw likely won’t go over well in customs, also, it’s bulky and tough to pack in a suitcase.
So, don’t be offended if a guest declines to accept the gift that you’ve so humbly presented to him or her. It isn’t a personal insult; it’s just a matter of practicality.
