'Tis the season for giving and remembering to thank those folks who have helped you throughout the year. If figuring out how to thank all of these important people in your life seems daunting, check out the handy holiday tipping guide I created below. The tipping amounts vary from city to city and a range of amounts to consider is included in the tip chart. I don't consider myself an expert on tipping, but I did scour a variety of sources to come up with a guide that offers a range of tipping ideas.
December can be an expensive month. If you are feeling strapped for cash this month, consider giving your tip as a New Year's gift during the first week of January. Of course, giving cash is not the only way to show your appreciation. A thoughtful note expressing your gratitude is meaningful too.
