Tipping Guidelines For The Holidays
‘Tis the season for giving out gifts and tips. Know how much is appropriate for your hairdresser or your daughter’s teacher? We’ve got some guidelines to help you tip the right amount this Christmas.It’s better to give cash than a check and crisp dollar bills look the best. Don’t forget to include a note too with your tip. If money is tight now, tipping experts say you have until the beginning of February to give a holiday tip.
1. The manicurist: A tip between $10 and $15 is appropriate if you see the same manicurist on a regular basis. A good rule of thumb is to tip the price of one manicure.
2. Hairdresser: Tip them the cost of one haircut.
3. A teacher: A gift worth about twenty dollars is appropriate. Another idea is to have the class chip in and buy a gift from all of them.
4. Babysitter: Tip them what you’d pay for one evening of babysitting.
5. Nanny: One or two week’s pay
6. Mail carrier: They can’t accept gifts or tips but if you still want to, $20 is appropriate.
7. Cleaning person: One week’s pay.
8. Dog walker: One week’s pay.
