  • How about an Amazon Gift Card

    Any item of your appreciate would show her how much you really care.

  • Holiday Tipping Guide  or Christmas Gift Giving

    "Cleaning staff, personal trainers and dog walkers usually receive a tip equal to one week or one session's pay. "

  • If you pay $75 then you should give her an extra $75. Cash is better than a gift card and she won't have to pay taxes on her holiday bonus if its cash instead of check.

  • One weeks pay. I would do $75 and a personal item to show you care (ie baked cookies, a box of chocolate etc)
