I usually do a week's pay but our new one hasn't been with us long so debating.....

StealthPolarBear Tue 12-Dec-17 19:25:12

A bottle of wine and box of chocolates

Award for most Middle class thread ever goes to...... 😅

Always give £50 and a box of chocs. She's amazeballs.

MiniAlphaBravo Tue 12-Dec-17 19:27:03

Omg £50?! I was thinking £10 and a bottle of wine maybe chicks as well.
Most first world problem ever.

MiniAlphaBravo Tue 12-Dec-17 19:27:51

Chocs not chicks, doubt she would appreciate chicks.

trilbydoll Tue 12-Dec-17 19:28:05

I was going to pay £30 instead of £25 plus a box of chocolates.

Fellia Tue 12-Dec-17 19:28:25

Normally £50 here too.

Weeks wages is usual.

Bluntness100 Tue 12-Dec-17 19:30:22

Usually I give a weeks wages and a box of chocolates. Except this year I cut her down to two hours a week instead of three as it’s generally jist the two of us here when daughter at uni. So I feel a bit stingy just giving her twenty quid, dunno. Have to think about it,,,,

When we had one it was a week's wages.

lostpurplehoodie Tue 12-Dec-17 19:31:34

I give her an extra week’s wages and box of chocolates too.

nuttyslackster Tue 12-Dec-17 19:31:34

A week's pay here, but as a supermarket voucher

onemouseplace Tue 12-Dec-17 19:31:36

A week's wages here as well.

IHaveBrilloHair Tue 12-Dec-17 19:32:11

A week's pay which is £20.
Not giving a gift this year as we're going for a meal/night out together in January instead, she's become a friend so she'd buy me a present too and it seems silly to basically swap gifts when we can do something together.

timeforabrewnow Tue 12-Dec-17 19:32:59

I might buy myself a DAB radio £25

I'm the bleedin' cleaner!

Shockers Tue 12-Dec-17 19:35:10

I’ll cook him Christmas dinner and play nudey prod games with him on Boxing Day.

slippermaiden Tue 12-Dec-17 23:09:20

Well as it's me, I'll have a bottle of nice gin....

What a snobby thread. Do you all hide money under the mats to see if they are honest and to make sure they clean properly. Wouldn't want to work for scrooge dancingLedge if I was a cleaner!!

MyBrilliantDisguise Tue 12-Dec-17 23:20:04

Why are you calling dancingledge a scrooge? She's said a week's wage is normal as a Christmas tip - why is that like scrooge?

Flibbertyjibbit Tue 12-Dec-17 23:21:53

£10 and a nice box of chocolates

Thedriftofstars Tue 12-Dec-17 23:23:45

How is it a snobby thread? People are allowed to talk about their lives that are different to yours, you know, buttercup.

lucy101101 Tue 12-Dec-17 23:23:58

100 plus lovely gifts for her and her grandson. She has cleaned for me for 12 years and I really appreciate her, she is really very special!

HorseItIntoMe Tue 12-Dec-17 23:25:23

I’m a cleaner ! My lovely clients usually give me money in a card (anything from £20 - £100 😵) or wine 🍷

Either are much appreciated.

How do you persuade someone to tip their cleaner? An elderly relative has a super helpful cleaner who helps with food shopping/cooking sometimes but relative is vv tight (but not poor). I think she deserves a tip (and probably a pay rise!). How do I suggest it?
