Yes, as a matter of fact I do. She delivered my babies and has been my MD and my friend for 19 years. I tell her nearly as many personal things (though different things) as I do my Therapist. We were preganant at the same time (our middle kids) and I gave her a music box for the baby. She still has it and that "baby" is 17. We actaully talked about it last time I saw her.

I also give gifts to my kids pediatrician, and his nurse. At one time I believe we had a chair in the waiting room with "our" name one it. (I have a kid who was diabetic at age 3 so we were there A LOT)

I used to also give small holiday gifts to the school bus drivers, our phamacist and other important people (my dry cleaners!) in our life. Just because they get paid to provide a service doesn't mean they don't like or need to be recognized and thanked.
