Struggling to figure out what to get the nanny in your life? Check out our list of gift ideas for nannies that we know they will not only love, but they will cherish!
1. A Cash Bonus
Every employee loves to receive a holiday bonus, and a nanny is no different. It's often suggested to do a weeks pay as a bonus for the Nanny, but if you want to give more than just a bonus you can easily give 75-80% cash to leave wiggle room for a gift.
2. Gift Cards
Target and Starbucks are just two ideas that come to mind when we think Gift Cards! Think about the two things that keep a nanny running: coffee and sweats.
3. A Day at the Spa
Nannies work hard from the minute they step into work until the minute they leave, and sometimes they run out of time to pamper themselves. Send your nanny to the spa for a day to enjoy a facial, manicure and pedicure, and an amazing massage that can keep her relaxed!
4. Nanny Gear
Nanny tees, coffee cups, and other items are great gifts for a nanny. You can check out Nanny Tees for custom hats and shirts as well as check out these cute coffee mugs (again, coffee keeps the nanny fueled to keep up with your little ones!) on Amazon!
5. Car Detailing
If your nanny is using her own vehicle for work, then offering to get her car detailed is a GREAT gift. Imagine the amount of goldfish she has stashed in the backseat?
6. A Subscription Box
There are so many subscription boxes out there, such as Fabfitfun, Causebox, and Ipsy! Sign your nanny up for one month, three months, or a full year of a subscription box.
7. Handmade Items
Who doesn't love little kid artwork? Have your children create a picture for the nanny, or perhaps TAKE a picture of your children and have them decorate the frame. Personalized gifts are amazing because not only did you and your children put a lot of effort into the gift, but it's something your nanny can cherish forever.
8. An Extra Day Off
Give your nanny an extra day or two off that is not only paid but is not deducted from her vacation or PTO. Giving your nanny a few days to recoup will make her feel appreciated and thankful for having you as her employer.
If your nanny isn't already a member of USNA or INA, then why not pay her yearly membership fee. Each association offers resources to assist nannies with gaining more knowledge and expertise in the industry, so purchasing her yearly membership will show that you are invested in her career choice as a nanny.
From slippers to Sherpa sweaters there is so much that you can buy for a nanny! Have your children pick out fun slippers, a hat and glove set, or even a cozy new jacket for the nanny to wear during working hours.
