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.

      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.

      Well, we are way beyond nannies now, but still waiting for grandchildren. Good suggestions here for those who need it.
