It's the Thought that Counts

Showing someone appreciation, when they least expect it, doesn't have to cost a lot of money.

When giving gifts, it's always the thought that counts. Along with your gift, give your nanny a handwritten card that is signed by your whole family and perhaps a picture of the kids.

You could also include a bouquet of flowers. Right now you can save up to 40% from 1-800-Flowers by CLICKING HERE.

A gift card is always nice too! Amazon carries a large selection of gift cards that can be purchased online and E-mailed directly to your recipient.

      Billybuc & Bravewarrior, thank you for stopping by & commenting today. ;-) I don't necessarily have a nanny either. However, my sister does watch my kids often so that my husband and I can have an occasional date night. Aside from paying her we try to buy her tickets to events that she might enjoy as a thank you gift. In this way, I think she knows that we really appreciate her. ;-) Y'all have a wonderful day hubbing. Sincerely, Mel

      Mel, I don't have a nanny nor did I when my son was young. Nevertheless, I had to read your post because, well - you posted it!

      It's always nice to show appreciation to those who make our life easier, especially those who take care of our kids while we work outside the home.

      You have a very sweet heart.
