Funny tip jars are a great way to squeeze every last cent out of people at any place of business you work that underpays you as much as they overcharge customers. When creativity is pretty much at a standstill at any job that requires tip jars, creative ones often not only provide workers with an outlet, but customers with a smile… and a reason to actually use the tip jar.
Pictures of these jars are all over the web, and even Instagram has a hashtag with over 1200 entries called #tipjar, and that’s just the singular one – there’s also #tipjars, #tipping, #baristas, and plenty of others everywhere you look. You’ve probably had a fun, hilarious, or nerdy tip jar picture flow through your Facebook feed sometime in the last week. So, just because there are so many awesome ones, here are the best tip jars I’ve ever seen on the web. These are not only the most clever, or even just the funniest tip jars, but also the ones I think work the best.
Lots of tipping jars (or whichever receptacle any restaurant, coffee shop, or otherwise uses for tipping) use this brilliant tactic of making it a tip jar war: for example, they’ll put one side Batman and one side Superman, or they’ll pose a question like, “who would win in a fight, Wolverine or The Hulk?” People vote with their dollars and not only do they get a public consensus, but all the awesome, hardworking people at the restaurant get more money.
Really, everyone wins! Anyway, these are the best tip jar decoration ideas out there, so either use ’em, enjoy ’em, or see if you’ve taken any of the pictures below.
