The Holiday Season is here! A lot of nannies have asked us to share some gift giving ideas for the families you work for.
Some of you may have checked this off your holiday gift list, but if you haven’t, here are some gift ideas for the children and parents alike. Please remember not to get caught up in how much you spend or how big the present is. The thought and your sincere wishes that come with your present mean far more to the family, and that is what it truly appreciated. Some ideas follow below:
-A Personalized Christmas Ornament for their Tree.
-A Basket with different cookie mixes and bread mixes that the family can bake together. Perhaps include some fun cookie cutters (Home Goods has a great selection!).
-Just for the Parents… A gift card made by you giving them a “Date Night” for any Friday or Saturday night they choose.
-For the parents… if they are coffee lovers, Dunkin Donuts has a great gift package all set to go!
-For the family… if they love plants, a Christmas Cactus or Amaryllis.
-For the family… photos from throughout the year of the children turned into a calendar (if you’re unable to do this on your computer, most drugstores like CVS or Walgreens have a calendar template).
Of course, every situation is different, and any suggested gift should never stretch your budget. As always, feel free to share your ideas or what you may have done in the past.
