Q:

How much should you tip a newspaper carrier?

A:

Some newspaper subscribers like to give their carriers an annual tip. In this situation, a $10 to $30 tip is appropriate. Instead of this, a small gift is also acceptable.

There are many other workers who provide services year-round, and giving them a year-end tip is customary. For example, a live-in nanny should be presented with a check equal to a week's pay. Depending upon the type of building and service provided, a doorman is given $15 to $80, while the superintendent receives between $20 and $80. A regularly scheduled yard worker gets $20 to $50. Mail carriers, however, should not be given money, because it is against Post Office policy. A small gift is appropriate, however.
