Come on, you know that come Christmas morning, you’re totally going to take credit for her downright impressive work. Slip her a buck--just be sure to check with her first and make sure tips are allowed.
Slip the cash into a homemade card from your kids for bonus points.
She’s always on time, she always texts you pics, plus she’ll rearrange her schedule at a moment’s notice. An extra week’s worth of dough (cash or check) shows your gratitude loud and clear.
Thanks to her, you can actually see your reflection in the countertops. A little holiday bonus is appropriate here. Adjust the amount based on how frequently she comes.
Your morning routine wouldn’t be the same without the business weddings section, so show a little love. Your tip should cover the cost of a one-month subscription (for example, The New York Times is roughly $9 a week, so your tip should clock in at $36, but feel free to round up).
For public service, consult your local municipality’s website to find out the rules. (You’d be surprised: In a ton of towns, tipping is not allowed.) But for private services, give the guys some cash… and maybe a few of your famous brownies.
And by “per person” we mean only the staff members who directly take care of your little angel. (Tipping the doting receptionist is, of course, totally optional.)
You trust her daily with the lives of your kids. Need we say more?
The post office prohibits giving money unless what you give comes in the form of a gift (or gift card), maxing out at 20 bucks.
Again, cash is a no-go. Instead, give a gift card to a local restaurant, bookstore or coffee shop. (And resist the urge to bake her cookies. She’s trying to watch her figure, OK?)
’Tis the season to tip the people who help you function 365 days a year. But how much should you give the nanny? The dog walker? The trash guy who totally didn’t report you when you forgot to separate your cardboard?
Here’s a handy guide to help you avoid the guessing game.
