Holiday Tipping Guide


‘Tis the season to tip. But who should you tip and how much should you give them? This is a question that I wrestle with every holiday season and if you’re in the same boat, keep in mind that it’s up to you how much to tip, but if you don’t give at least a little, you might be seen as a scrooge.

Not everyone can afford to leave a tip and if this is something you face, at least send a nice personalized card. You don’t need to go into detail why you didn’t include a tip, but be sure to wish the person well, and mean your words.

If you are able to give financially, the Daily Worth has some great tips on tipping.


For People You See and Tip Regularly



If it’s someone you see all the time, such as your hairdresser, double your usual tip.



Fee Based Providers



For people like babysitters and pet sitters, tip them what the cost of a visit would normally be. So, if you give them $50 each visit a couple times a month, your tip should be between $25­ and $50.  If they went above and beyond, feel free to give a little more.



Skilled Professionals



If it’s someone such as a teacher, or tutor that you don’t usually tip, send them a small gift such as cookies and a card.
