How much should I tip during the holidays?

BALTIMORE - During the holiday season, it's customary to give the people who help you year round a little extra show of appreciation.

But figuring out just how much to give, can be confusing.

So here are a few guidelines:

  • You should tip your hairstylist or barber the cost of one visit.
  • For a cleaning person who visits weekly Tip them the cost of one service.
  • A dog walker can receive up to one week's pay if they walk your dog five days a week.
  • But avoid giving your mail carrier cash, because they're not allowed to accept cash gifts.
  • People have different feelings when it comes to how much we should tip. We want to hear what you think.
