Should You Give Your Cleaning Lady a Christmas Gift?

A small gift, or even a thank you note for a holiday gift, can go a long way in making your cleaners feel appreciated and cared for. They'll be grateful and excited to help you grow your business even more in the coming year. Most people give money to the house cleaner as a Christmas present. The gift is considered a Christmas “bonus” or tip and the appropriate means of payment is cash, not a check.

While cash seems to be the favorite option, if you know your house cleaner well, you might want to give her a more personal gift that says Merry Christmas. In short, it is highly recommended to recognize your house cleaning service during the holidays. Christmas carols sound and you feel especially generous to the people who make your life better all year round, such as your house cleaner. If you work with a professional cleaning company, your employees are trained to do a good job regardless of the Christmas tip. For the house cleaner whose pride and joy are her children, buy small Christmas presents for each of her children and give her a gift card or a dinner at a restaurant for her and her husband to enjoy.

Many people find themselves in a dilemma about what kind of Christmas present to give to the people in their lives, such as the postman, the newspaper delivery man, the house cleaner, or the nanny. A gift card, a beautiful basket of special foods or spa products, or anything else you know your cleaning staff will like, are well thought out ideas. Give the person who keeps your house immaculately clean a special holiday gift that shows your appreciation for a job well done. If you don't feel obligated to give extra tips during the holidays, make sure that the cleaners won't do a bad job cleaning your house just because you didn't set a bigger tip for Christmas. If you've forged a relationship with your house cleaner or have known her for many years, consider giving a thoughtful, personal gift. Christmas is an excellent time to show appreciation for those who help make our lives easier throughout the year.

Whether it's cash or something more personal, giving your cleaning lady a holiday gift is an excellent way to show your gratitude and make them feel valued. It's also important to remember that if you don't feel obligated to give extra tips during the holidays, it's still important to ensure that they will continue to do their best work regardless. When it comes down to it, giving your cleaning lady a Christmas gift is an excellent way to show appreciation for their hard work throughout the year. Whether it's cash or something more personal, they will be sure to appreciate it and it will go a long way in making them feel valued.
