I'm of the opinion that you don't DESERVE a raise, you EARN one. And even when you earn a raise, you only get it when the company can afford to give it.
That being said, I'm also of the opinion that you don't insult someone whom you've decided has earned that raise by offering them an amount that can be effectively erased with the purchase of a pack of smokes or a bottle of their favorite wine.
