My assistant says my "impressive" gift ISN'T. Help, please?

Bliss149 | Oct 3, 2011 05:28 PM

Need a gift for a client who has just spent a bunch of money with me - kind of a housewarming-type gift. They are a super-nice Jewish couple in their 60's. He's a brain surgeon.

I was planning to take over a bottle of Dom Perignon at the conclusion of the job. The two times I did this before, the people seemed to REALLY like it.

But my admin told me Dom Perignon isn't that impressive...that I should get Cristal. Well, first of all, Cristal is twice the price and more than I wanted to spend. And secondly, Cristal just makes me think of rappers. I'm sure it very good...but I just think Dom has that WOW factor, which is what I'm going for.

So my first question is...IS SHE RIGHT? Is Dom Perignon NOT that impressive?

And if you think I shouldn't get it, please suggest something...you know...classy.

I know they like good food and she has mentioned that she loves chocolate.

Thanks in advance for any help!
