What is the proper etiquette for holiday tipping?

FOX19 -

As the holiday season nears, many are asking the question 'how much should I tip for the holidays?'

Etiquette website Emily Post has the answer. 

According to the website, these are the things you should consider when thinking about holiday tipping:

  • Your budget- don't feel obligated to max out your budget
  • If your budget doesn't allow for monetary tips, try homemade gifts
  • Any gift or tip should be accompanied by a note of appreciation
  • If you tip regularly, you can forego an end-of-the-year tip 
  • Consider the quality and frequency of the service, your relationship with the supplier and the length of service
  • Tipping averages are typically higher in larger cities. What are the regional customs?
  • Is the establishment deluxe or moderate? 
  • When in doubt, ask. 
  • If you think you're getting poor service because of a low tip, talk to a manager or change companies.
