How Much Do You Tip This Holiday Season?

‘Tis the season to tip! But how much do you give? Here are some guidelines you can follow when it comes to giving some of your favorite people a little extra this year.

Mail Carriers:  Non-cash gifts with value up to $20 — civil servants are not allowed to receive cash tips. If you want to reward for delivery through snow, sleet and rain, buy a gift card for a coffee shop near your carrier’s route or a cold weather accessory for those tough winter days.
Hairstylist: Cost of one haircut. If the same person that cuts your hair, styles, and colors it too, you may want to give more.
Newspaper Carrier: $10-$30 If you tip your deliverer throughout the year, give a smaller gift at the holidays. Usually they’ll leave an envelope at your door. If they don’t, ask the company to add a tip to your bill.
Babysitter: One or two nights pay.  You can get away with a tip, but try a gift card instead — it’s like giving cash, yet it’s more personal.
