The question always comes up... should I tip, and if I do, how much? Many people in our lives provide services for us, all year long, in and out of our homes year round. It is always nice around the holidays to thank them.
For guidance, I refer to Emily Post as a reference, or starting point. There are no real RULES, your household budget , your relationship and holiday spirit can help make the final decision.
Housekeeper- up to one weeks pay- or a small gift
Newspaper delivery person- $10 to $30
Mail carrier- Small gift- most are not allowed to accept cash or gift cards
Handyman- $15 to $40
Trash collector- $10 to $30 each
Yard worker- $20 to $50 each
Hope this helps!! Happy holidays!
