How Much Should I Tip? A Holiday Tipping Guide

Personal Trainer: $50

Tipping a personal trainer isn't customary, but if you have a good relationship with yours and would like to thank her for a year of whipping you into shape, a $50 gratuity is appropriate. If your gym is especially upscale, you may consider tipping the cost of one session.

Hairstylist: Cost of One Visit

Is your stylist also your buddy? When you go in for a holiday trim, consider a tip equal to the amount of one haircut, but remember that you've been tipping all along. (Right?)

Beauty Salon Staff: Cost of One Visit

A good year-end tip for the beauty staff that makes you shine like a diamond is the cost of one visit, divided equally among the beauticians who work on you.

Dog Walker or Pet Groomer: Cost of One Session

If your pet relies on a dog walker or groomer to keep her looking and feeling her best, a cash gratuity or gift equal to the cost of one week of walks, or one grooming session, is appropriate.
