Do you give holiday tips to the people you appreciate and rely upon to make your life easier throughout the year? If so, you are in the majority. According care.com, 69% of people surveyed last year gave tips, most often around the holiday season. Most people spend between $50 to $300 total in holiday tips. And, tipping is tipping the scale – significantly more people tip than ten years ago, and most respondents plan on tipping more this year than last.
Christmas in January? It might be the best post-holiday pay-off if you plan now to use your holiday gift cards. You know how this Christmas story goes:
My grandmother, known to all as Nana, always sent a little something to her grandchildren for birthdays and holidays. Once she tucked a few dollars inside a Halloween card when I was at college, telling me to spend it however I wanted. “Even on pizza,” she wrote.
