I’m a baker, its what I do, its who I am. Normally when I want to thank someone (or bribe someone) I do it with baked goods. I was thinking tonight of making a basket for my vendors as a thank you thing.
Is this acceptable? Would you want to receive one if you’re a pbotographer/dj/doc/etc?

@wisher558: If you are just doing it to be nice, I think it is ok. But if it is in lieu of a tip or other payment then no.
I am personally not really into eating stuff from client’s homes as I don’t know what their hygiene is like. But I am a bit of a nut that way.

@andielovesj: I agree.
I don’t like to eat things people make if I don’t know them. You said you’re a baker though, do you mean as a career? If so I would probably like something from your bakery. Although, like a PP said, it’s not a substitution for a tip.

@wisher558: I agree with Andie and AlwaysSunny. If it’s a tip and baked goods then yes.
I used to clean houses for living and I absolutely hated when people would give me homemade cookies as a christmas tip because 5/10 I wouldn’t dare to eat because of how dirty their house was. The other half of people were just lousy bakers so even though I knew they were clean people cookies tasted bad. I’d rather get nothing than homemade edibles (unless it’s a jar of jam – yumm )
