Who Do You Tip, And What Do You Tip On The Holidays

Dollar Bills and Receipt

It's that time of year. Everyone has their hands out, wanting a tip for the holiday. So who do you/should you tip, and an even better question. How much should you tip them? I did a little digging and found the answers for you, but you may not like it....well, unless you're the one getting the tip.

  • Baby Sitter – One to two nights’ pay is about right for a babysitter
  • Cleaning Person – The cost of one visit is considered fitting
  • Dog Walker – Tip your regular dog walker up to a week’s pay.
  • Hairstylist – The normal cost of a visit would be a nice tip for a stylist you see regularly.
  • Letter Carrier – The U.S. Postal Service forbids mail carriers from accepting cash, and says gifts must be under $20 in value.
  • Newspaper Delivery Person – Consider giving $10 to $30, unless you tip regularly throughout the year.
  • Nursing Home Worker – A personal gift such as homemade cookies or fudge
  • Personal Trainer – $50 or up to the cost of a session
  • Your Child’s Teacher – Small gift, accompanied by a note or drawing by your child
  • Trash Collectors – Tip each of your trash $10 to $30.
