So, if you are leaving a gift -- you should also leave a note that read "Regalo" (gift) with a list of the items you are giving, your name and room # to avoid the employees being questioned for stealing.
I had no idea about this but there is a whole thread on it in another DR forum.
No note required for cash tips, but recommended/required for non-monetary gifts.

If you're going to do that though make sure you leave a note that says it's a gift (regalo), what it is, your name and room number because they have their bags checked at the end of the day to make sure they're not stealing things from guest's rooms.
I think money is the best way to go - it doesn't add any extra weight to your luggage and you're guaranteed that they'll be able to use it - your "maid" could be a 20 year old guy [had it happen - he was single and didn't wear nylons!]. They also don't run the risk of having it taken away from them at the end of the day. We usually leave between $2-5 US dollars a day (depending on the service).
