Tipping Etiquette - How to Say Thank You This Holiday Season

Tipping etiquette: who do you tip and how much? In the holiday gift-giving season, it's time to dig a little deeper and show appreciation for all the services providers who have helped us during the year.
Tipping at this time of year can be stressful. From the waitress at your favorite restaurant, to the babysitter who saves your sanity, to your hairdresser who makes you feel like a million bucks, how much is enough, and how much is too much?
Tipping etiquette guidelines for the gift-giving season:
o Most people dig a little deeper and boost tips show appreciation at the holiday season. Whatever you give, the intent is thank people who took care of you over the past year.
o Most people use the same criteria for increasing tips: to nurture important relationships and/or to reward excellent service.
o Tipping depends on your budget, regional customs, and where you live. For example, if you live in a high rise in a large city, you might focus more on the attendants in your high rise apartment building, while if you live in a smaller city or town, you would be more concerned with your babysitter and hair stylists.
o Some people offer cash tips or checks. Other people show appreciation by giving a bottle of liquor, baking cookies, or finding a gift that's meaningful to the receiver. Base your tip on what's appropriate to your situation and your budget.
o Different professions usually receive different tips at the holidays. For example, bellmen at hotels and apartment buildings, bartenders, food-service professionals generally get cash tips. People that give more personal services, such as hair stylists or babysitters, can receive either cash or gifts during the holidays.
Here are some guidelines for tipping:
Baby sitter: 1 evening's pay + small gift from the child
Daycare providers; $25=$50 each + small gift from child
Housekeeper: 1 week's pay or more, depending on length of service
Hairdresser: Cost of 1 cut (or $20-$100) - depending on cost of cuts and frequency
