Tips on tipping in Cuba, please!

We're traveling to Cuba on Thursday, but are trying to decide how much money to bring with us. We're staying at an all-inclusive resort at Cayo Santa Maria for a week and don't plan to venture far from the beach, much less the resorts.
How does tipping work in Cuba? Who do we tip, how much, and how often? Also, is it true that the staff will appreciate toiletries et cetera that we can leave as "gifts" upon our departure? If so, what should we bring? We've heard nylons are in demand, and things like deodorant et cetera. Any other tips?
