Monday September 24th – As we all know it takes A LOT of caffeine to keep up with our crazy adorable kiddos! Nannies although they appear to be Super heros they do tend to need caffeine to keep their toddler wrangling super powers alive! Tell your nanny how much you appreciate her today with this super cute coffee mug and a gift certificate to her favorite coffee shop!
Tuesday September 25th – Let’s talk about LOVE… Your nanny LOVES your child(ren) more than words can explain. Being a nanny is truly a labor of love and nannies do what they do not for the money or perks but for the true love of children and the impact they make on our next generation. Frame some photos of your nanny with your children and write a thank you card to showcase your love and appreciation for her. You can have your children hand make a sweet card to go along with it to really make her/his heart melt
Wednesday September 26th – Let’s Party! Everyone loves a good excuse to throw a party right?

You can invite other nanny friends over for a playdate to make it extra fun!
Thursday September 27th – Give the gift of education! A great nanny is always looking to continue her education and training to be the BEST nanny she can be. Sponsor her for next years National Nanny Training Day or International Nanny Association conference! Perhaps she is looking to learn a new language, take a cooking class or renew her CPR/First aid. The gift of education will show your nanny that you care!
Friday September 28th – Give your nanny a bonus!
Saturday September 29th – Share words of appreciation for your nanny today and everyday! Make it a point to thank your nanny for a job well done.
