How Much You Should Tip Over The Holidays

When it comes to tipping, most of us are on the 20%-or-higher train. But that’s pretty much reserved for wait staff at restaurants – so what do you do when it comes time to pay your barista, your babysitter, or the guy who cuts your grass? Considering it’s the holidays, you should probably hand the people in your life an extra buck or two to pay it forward. Here are some tipping scenarios you should consider:

  • Apartment Landlord – They do a lot for you! Consider throwing them $50 this season.
  • Babysitters – Throw them a week of pay for free.
  • Dog groomers – An extra $10 could make them feel appreciated.
  • Dog walkers – Throw your regular walkers a few extra bucks this week.
  • Garbage collectors – They don’t see much tipping action. Couldn’t hurt to throw them a $20.
  • Doormen – It would be nice to get your doorman a bottle of wine for the holidays.
  • Parking attendants – Again, they don’t see much tipping action. Throw them a few extra bucks next time you park.
  • Personal trainers – Hook them up with an extra $20 this week.
