Need ideas for what to give to your treasured nanny or babysitter this holiday? We have some ideas for you! We asked around, and here's what other families purchased for their caregiver:
Dinner at a nice restaurant A personal trainer session
_A trip home - _Our caregiver really wanted to see her family in Hong Kong. We gave her cash she can use towards that trip.
Gifts from the kids - We decided it was appropriate for our kids to choose a gift for their nanny. They picked out a beautiful heart necklace. They wrapped it, made a card, and presented it to her themselves. They were so proud to give it to her, and she wears it all the time!
Charm bracelet - We gave our nanny a Pandora bracelet; each of the kids picked out a charm for her. Since then, she's been given many other charms by friends and family to add to her collection.
Ninja smoothie maker
A few months ago, my babysitter told me that she broke her smoothie maker and was crushed, because she loves her smoothies. Since she couldn't replace it, we bought her a new one.
_A facial and pedicure - _Every girl's best friend!
_Craft kit - _we noticed that our babysitter loves doing crafts with the kids, so we bought her a card making kit. She actually brought it over and made cards with the kids one day!
If none of these strike your fancy, giving your caregiver an extra paid day off or some extra cash as a bonus is always appreciated!
What did you or are you giving your caregiver this year?
