How Much to Tip: Cost of one week’s pay + personal gift
InvestorPlace’s Take: First up on our holiday tipping guide: nannies. Most tipping guidelines suggest nannies should receive one week’s pay, which certainly fits the bill financially.
However, Gifts.com goes beyond the simple question of how much to tip. The site also suggest giving nannies a personal gift, preferably something they wouldn’t buy for themselves. (Gifts.com also has a couple tips about what not to get the nanny.)
Per babysitters, one week’s pay works for tipping etiquette if they work frequently. However, if your babysitter mostly handles spot requests, the cost of one visit is fine for how much to tip.
