Should I tip my contractor/carpenter?

I just had a significant amount of work ($80K) done on my house due to storm damage. My insurance is paying for all of the repairs, which were significant and required that I move out of the house for six months. I got very lucky and have an amazing contractor, who hired an equally amazing carpenter who turns out to be a perfectionist and has done impeccable work. Should I tip them or buy them something to say thank you? [more inside]

After being nickel-and-dimed to death throughout the process of buying a home in NYC, I have learned from our real estate lawyer that we will be expected-but-not-required to tip the Title Closer about $150 at the closing.

Tipping Your Piercer

Piercing studio etiquette: it seems that you're expected to include a tip. Base it on the total, including the price of the jewelry, or base it on the piercer's labor alone?
