Holiday Gifting for your Household Employee

Tipping BlogThanksgiving is behind us, holiday music is filling the air of every store you enter and cooler temperatures have moved in – it’s really starting to feel like the holidays. We receive a lot of calls during this time of the year from families asking what year-end bonuses are appropriate for their household employees. 

When in doubt, cash bonuses tend to be preferred. Not only are they the easiest gift to give, they are also the most appreciated. In our experience, the equivalent of one to three weeks salary is about right, depending on the number of years of service. In addition to money, we have compiled a list of gifts that we’ve been told are appreciated in our Top Ten Employee Gifts List.

Your household employees are an integral part of keeping your household running smoothly. Show them that you appreciate them in a manner that is special to you!
