    I've sold some textbooks on eBay and I thought it would be nice to send a chocolate bar with the books just cause it would be so unexpected and I'm just feeling really generous... Is this a good idea ?

    The person I'm selling it too has been really nice and we've had banter over eBay messages so I think they deserve a chocolate gift

    UPDATE !
    13th July - I have sent two parcels in the post with a thank you post it note and a chocolate bar with each one

    I'm typically a really tight person concerning money but I just think everyone now and again I should be more generous

    True - I think I'll leave a note as well so It doesn't look like I've accidentally wrapped it up as well

    Haha you're getting an aero mate ; that's it. You purchase the item and I choose the chocolate, but if you're a regular customer then we might be able to come to some sort of arrangement surrounding your chocolate needs.

    Thanks,
