I do gifts at end of projects, sometimes, if the project went on for a while
or we did something special. For example, tomorrow, I end a year long
contract with a good group of men. I have little tins of chocolate and

boys don't feel they need to do anything back.

I have also sent PMs flowers if we pulled a miracle out of our you know
wheres. It all depends.
