When they talk about the season of giving, these days it’s no longer just people in need. Like it or not, tipping also goes hand in hand with the holidays.

About 60% of us tip service workers over the holidays, according to Consumer Reports. We shell out on average about $75 dollars, which is what people told us when we hit Great Northern Mall. But, if you follow what the etiquette experts say, we calculated all those tips could hit upwards of a $1,000 depending on your lifestyle.

Colleen Harding who founded the Cleveland School of Etiquette says, “Protocols dictate we are responsible for appreciating those who take care of us throughout the year.”

The most popular people to tip are those at your barber or beauty salon, including manicurists or masseuses.

We’re supposed to give them the cost of one service.

For cleaning people who come regularly, it’s the cost of one visit.

For your mailperson and other people who deliver packages, experts say $20.

Also on the list, your trash, snow removal and lawn care people, which each person on the crew should get between $10 – $30.
