With Christmas right around the corner I am sure manny of our wonderful nannies are wondering “What should I get Mom boss, Dad boss, and charges for Christmas???” We have a few great ideas that might help relieve the stresses of wanting to get the family you nanny for something special but not break the bank.
Take a look at a few of our fun ideas for holiday gifts for your families:
1. Gather up the photos you snap all day everyday of the little ones and create a special book that will mean so much for years to come. Take a look at this example of one the founder of The Nanny Joynt Trisha made for one of her nanny families. This is a fun project that takes a bit of time but the end result is priceless!
www.shutterfly.com – You can also get great deals at shutterfly so make sure you search around for the best deals or promo codes!
2. Take your charge to paint a fun piece of pottery. Take a look at this fun plate for inspiration! This allows you to showcase just how small those tiny feet are and personalize it with their name and year! If you have multiple charges you could have each child do a foot print with their name! Here are a couple of places where you can take your charge to paint! Please note it takes about a week to get the painted piece back so make sure you allow enough time before Christmas!
3. Bring your charges artwork to life! Do you work with a little one who loves art and drawing? You can send in a copy of one of your tiny artist’s masterpieces and have it turned into a stuffed animal! How cool is that! Great personal gift idea!
We hope this helps give you some unique gift ideas for those special families in your life! Everyone here at The Nanny Joynt wishes you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year!
