I need help with suggestions for what to do to tip the staff of the parking garage at my building for Christmas.
The actual building staff is really easy – the management office just sends out a letter telling you to drop off a check if you want to contribute and they’ll distribute it evenly amongst the door staff, maintenance staff, engineers, etc. So I just wrote a check for $100, which I know isn’t a lot divided by the large amount of staff, but there are 900 units in my building, so I think (hope!) it ends up being a nice holiday bonus for them.
My problem is the parking garage doesn’t do anything like that. I definitely need to do SOMETHING for them… it’s valet so they valet my car every day. They also are in charge of packages that get sent to the building that are too big for your mailbox, and I order stuff online a lot. Oh and you have to walk through the garage to take the dogs in/out, so basically they all know Elle and I really well! Problem is there are 12 guys that work there… I’d obviously like to give cash but can’t really afford any significant amount since there are 12 of them. Would it be totally shitty to give them only 10 bucks each? Maybe bake some cookies too? Any other ideas?
