Christmas is just eight days away and your gift list may be getting a little bit longer if you hand out holiday cash to those who provide you with vital services year-round.

But how much is the right amount to give?

Etiquette experts say the standard amount for household help, like nannies or landscapers, is about the cost of one service.

For personal trainers or your hair stylist, the average, again, is the cost of one session.

If you have a favorite waitress, go above and beyond with maybe a 30% tip on an upcoming tab.
