Top Christmas Etiquette Tips
With Christmas just around the corner, you may be asking yourself, ‘Who
should I tip – and how much should I give them?’ One way to help you decide
– and observe good etiquette this tipping season - is to divide recipients into
categories according to how close they are to you or how regularly you’re in
contact with them. It’s also worth following the advice of Damian Clarkson,
founderand managing director of event catering business,TheLondonKitchen.
Damian says, “For, a more personal approach, giving mince pies or a bottle of
wine are excellent ways to thank trades people for the service they’ve given you
over the year. Also, remember to have emergency food and presents handy in
case you forget someone.” So whether you prefer to offer a cash tip or a gift,
follow the guide below on ‘How to be a good festive customer’.
