Last night my friend Scott and I did an annual tradition of ours, something we have done for many years each holiday season.  We pick a reasonably priced restaurant, nothing too crazy, and go out for dinner, and exchange birthday presents. (His is new year's eve!  He's always going to be 13 days older than me.  I get a little joy out of this.)

Anyhow, the christmasish (sure, it's a word) part of the tradition is that after dinner we leave a 100% tip in cash, and a nice note, and then quietly ghost on out of the restaurant, so the server doesn't have to be awkward about it.

I've known Scott for decades.  We've done this a lot.  It never, ever gets old.
