I subscribe to the Times and this week found an envelope stuffed into my paper with a name and address printed on the front. A card was inside, signed by my delivery person. In this season of holiday tipping, how much should I tip for his service?

If, like many New Yorkers, you only receive the paper on the weekend, a tip of $10 seems to be the standard, give or take a few bucks. But if you have the paper delivered seven days a week up that tip to $20 or $25. The primary source for Gothamist's information was our morning delivery person, but his figures checked out when we asked friends and co-workers their preferred tipping amounts.
