    Default Christmas gift expectations?

    What is the standard for gifts for xmas time? Not talking about formal employees and the 13th month salary. For example, a maid that comes once a week, a gardner that comes twice a month-are they expecting something? What is the standard gift? Bottle of rum? Cash (prob)? And if so, how much? I realize that there are no legal obligations like with employees, just wondering what people do.

    We pay ours a 13th month salary and give her a little something (~RD$1,000) towards the Christmas dinner and her bus fare to her home town.

    I believe they are entitled to the equivalent of a 13th salary.So if you pay her weekly,and she has been with you a year, give her a months pay. If less then a year then give her a proportion of that. I also give them something personal.
