Kiplinger: Your Guide to Holiday Tipping

2. Your Doorman

Suggested Tip:
$25 to $100 each

Consider opening your wallet for the person who opens your apartment or co-op entrance door all year long.

The higher end of the suggested range, or even more if you're feeling extra-generous, is for those who help you the most or provide exceptional service (think heavy grocery-bag luggers or expert taxi-cab hailers). And in high-end neighborhoods (hello, Upper East Side), doormen might be used to pocketing bigger tips.

But check with your building association first. You may be able to contribute to a collective fund that will be distributed appropriately to staff members.
