I'm the broker now, but I used to give "superiors" gifts if they were good at their job. I would normally give a book on a subject they are interested in.

Yes, I used to every year when I had one (basically mine is virtual now). My bride always baked homemade brownies for my special gifts. But, once in a while I bought her a gift I knew she'd like, because I knew her well and what she enjoyed (hobbies & interests). Gifts tend to reflect how well we know a person.

My broker has been the fire department when things started to go wrong.

He has encouraged me to 'hang in there' when things were sparse.

He invites me to join his family on the boat.

I can use his back yard to start my weekend paddling on the Weekie Wachee River.

Why would I let his business role dictate how and when I acknowledge the benefit presented to me in many dimensions? 

Do I present the acknowledgment in an environment where 'agents' can spin it improperly. No.
