One of the important parts of good personal finance planning is giving to others. This includes charitable giving, of course, but it also means showing generosity to those who perform services for you. Proper holiday tipping etiquette can show that you care about a person, and that you appreciate what he or she has done for you throughout the year.
Over at a Sedona real estate blog, a handy list of the people you should consider in your holiday tipping is made. I urge you to head over and check it out.
Also, remember that even if you don’t have regular providers for things like haircuts, you can still be generous in your holiday tipping. Give an extra $5 or more to the server when you go out to eat. If you go to a discount salon (like dollar cuts) and don’t have a regular hair stylist, do the same. Show a little extra appreciation. Such generosity has a way of returning to you.
