This is going to sound really harsh, and I don't even mean it quite as it sounds...but I don't have the time or patience for the "fun things".
If someone does a good job, I'll take time out of my string of things I have to do to make the reward much greater than the task. If they do just a little more than they should, I'll praise them to their manager. If they do something REALLY above and beyond, I'll fall all over myself to acknoledge it.

However, if they don't do in a reasonable period of time, what they should (a year to put through an approved PC?), I'm not going to go out of my way to do c**p for them...except maybe let everyone up to and including the CIO (my boss) know what a pisspoor job they did.

Its about time we stopped rewarding people for things that are included in their daily responsibilities

I do both. The chocolate isn't a bribe; it's more a fun thing, a
light-hearted way of saying thank you. The e-mail is a more serious and
long-term way of helping someone who helped you.
