What To Buy For A Car Dealer?

I can't remember if I've asked this before or not? Apologies if I have

But I've been a utter pita keep calling them for updates and questions from my car dealer I think getting them a little prezzie when I pick the car up is appropriate imo

I have purchased via carwow so their commission is going to be low from this sale I think

It'll be nice to get something for the whole dealership rather than just the salesman who's dealing with me, or do you think just for the salesman? :/ and what to get?

It's coming up that time, I've checked with them and they can accept gifts (they're expecting chocolate hobnobs now lol)

So far I've bought them

Cuff links (for my salesman)

Engraved pen (for my salesman)

Chocolates (for the dealership)

Chocolate hob nobs (for the dealership)

And I was thinking of some beers too - good idea? Bad idea?

Anything else or is that enough? Too much?

I've known my dealer for a long time, they are friends of the family and all he got was a handshake and my signature.

He knows he will get the long term business of parts and servicing.

Any dealer will just be pleased to complete the sale. Shouldn't need gifts IMO...

Unless they are dear friends I fail to see why you should need to buy them anything... Then again stereotypes suggest posties and milkmen get rewarded...

They owe you as a customer, not the other way round. I don't pay a tip to the salesmen who sells me my car insurance, or anyone who sells my mobile contract lol I screw them down give me more and more money off it, not beg them to add a gift to the cost...

Tbf I have been and am a pita to them, calling often with the most mundane questions and changing my mind on aspects every so often. It's only fair after all that I get them something

I got the guys in my garage a box of biccies as a Thank You for having my van up on a ramp on and off for two months checking where Think Fraud/Ford's non-existent £5,000-to-fix oil leak was coming from, and then barely charging a bean.

Least I could do. Sometimes, it's nice to say Thank You.

I sometimes get tips/gifts as a delivery driver, mainly around Christmas time.

To be honest I think its a really nice gesture, restores my faith in humanity & helps me be nicer to the next customer I come across. Nothing wrong with nice gestures if you ask me (especially if you've been a pain in the hoop!).
