    I joined a gym last summer and work with a personal trainer for one half hour once a week. I pay the fee for training to the gym so I have no idea how much he earns training me. I would like some ideas what to give him for Christmas. I am guessing cash would be best but how much?

    I don't think you need to give him a gift, but if it's something you really want to do, I'd recommend a thank you card with a gift card inserted of maybe $50 value...up to $100 if you really like him and plan to continue the working relationship. But, $50 would be fine and I think he'd appreciate the gesture.

    I see my massage therapist about 10 times a year. He won't take tips because he works in a clinic vs. a spa. He likes wine and I show up with a $30-$40 bottle of wine every December and that's more than enough

    If you really want to get him something to say thank you, then buy him a voucher instead of giving him cash and put it in a card. Maybe for a sporting goods store.

    I'm guessing a box of candy is a bad idea??
