I've been thinking about it... I dont really like giving money, but I can't think of a good gift idea either... at the moment my plan is a Target gift card. Juliet's at a small home daycare, so it's just the one "teacher" person. I'd also like to make something or include a gift item with it... but don't know what.
I'm kinda spoiling my nanny, but I'm hoping it pays off in spades...and honestly, I wouldn't ordinarily, but she's already been telling me how much both she and her mother (whom I've only met once) are planning to spoil Maggie.
SO, I got her a cooking seminar for 2 people (expect she will take her mom) with a pro chef downtown, I got her a professional whip creamer gadget thingy and a couple cookbooks I picked up at a warehouse sale. She's eager to learn more about cooking and so this is why the theme. I'm also giving her a small monetary bonus. Besides DH and Maggie I think I spent the most on her of all the gifts I've bought. But when I think about it, she's with us day in and day out, and she's been uber flexible and helpful.

I was just planning on giving our nanny money, maybe a little more than one week's pay. It would be nice to think of a small gift to go with it, but who knows what that might be. She did just get her first Christmas tree at her own place, so maybe an ornament with a picture of Juliana? Thanks for bringing this up. I obviously need to start thinking!
