Holiday Tipping Guide: 2011

Share Article

Full-time babysitters should get one week of pay. Babysitters you use less frequently should receive a tip equivalent to the amount of time you use them per week. You can also add a small gift from your child.

From the doorman to the handyman, the tip depends on how much you’ve used them during the past year. City dwellers will likely give more than suburbanites. Elevator operators should get between $20 and $50.

“A private home nurse that works for an agency may not be able to accept cash, so check with the agency first,” Gottsman said. For nursing home staff, consider a gift such as food that everyone can share and doesn’t favor only one attendant.
