Holiday Tipping Etiquette
The holiday season is upon us. To dispense with the formalities first I offer a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and for any forgotten - Happy Holidays to one and all.
Holiday tipping is a frequent conundrum for many people during the holidays and here I would like to offer guidelines to follow to make it a breeze. One thing to remember when tipping is that it is at the sole discretion of the giver and a mere bonus for the receiver. With that being said, let's review the common list of tips and suggested amounts to be given:
COST OF 1 SERVICE
Hairdresser / Barber
15 - 20% OF SERVICE
$10 - $30
UP TO $20 (no cash) government guidelines do not allow carriers to receive cash
$25+ SMALL GIFT
15% - 20% of BOTTLE
Wine Sommelier/ Steward
While there are dozens of others worthy of tips during the holidays - plan accordingly as this holiday tradition can become extremely expensive rather quickly. And while some may not agree with the "guidelines" above - I respectfully ask to you to remember that a gift of any kind is thoughtful and should be received with grace and a sincere thank you.

Now off to work and before I forget to say - Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Day
