Holiday gift for contractors?
Is it customary to give a holiday gift or bonus to contractors? If so, what amount? I don't have time to bake
They're basically finished with the kitchen but our hood had to get sent back so we're waiting for that. They came in yesterday to tie up a few loose ends. I provided snacks and water when they were working here over the summer/fall. I've offered pizza, was going to give them beer once the cabinets and countertop went in but the head contractor said no. I've bought them Starbucks once or twice when I was going.
They might be back before Xmas if the hood arrives. The head guy said they're not that busy now. There are 2-3 guys, plus the electrician and his helper, plus the head guy. The painters are done but might come back for a touch up
