Christmas gifts for hairdresser or others who provide services

For people who provide services throughout the year such as hairdressers and such, it is customary to give them an additional holiday tip on top of your regular tip of the value of a month’s worth of services. If you get your hair done monthly for $50, you should tip your regular $5-$10 for that haircut plus a Christmas bonus of $50. 

If you cannot afford to tip that way, it’s totally up to your discretion, but your hairdresser works hard and if you can afford to tip them well, please do. (So does your housekeeper, nail technician, doorman, mail delivery person, or whoever else provides you with great service year round) Here are some gift guides for people who work hard for you.
