With fall festivities on the horizon, there is no better time to celebrate your nanny and all the
amazing things they do for your family. Let’s be honest the past 1.5 years have been rough on everyone… especially nannies. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have witnessed the true value of in-home childcare providers and just how essential they are! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts here at The Nanny Joynt for the incredible job you are all doing! Now let’s celebrate all of you!!!
National Nanny Recognition Week is celebrating its 23rd year of recognizing and celebrating nannies, and is set to take place from Sunday, September 19th to Saturday, September 25, 2021. These seven days are set aside for you and your family to show your nanny some special appreciation and gratitude for all they do.
National Nanny Recognition Week was created so that the nannies in our lives feel celebrated,
honored and appreciated, just as they are. Most of the time, our nannies have become a part of
our family, and they deserve one week of appreciation for all their hard work, dedication and
commitment. To find out more about NNRW, visit http://nnrw.org.
To get everyone excited about this upcoming NNRW, we have put together a list of appreciation
gifts and ideas for your nanny. There are SO many ways and endless ideas of how you can
show your gratitude to them, so just make sure the week of September 19th is filled with some extra love.
Cheers to all our wonderful nannies! We adore and appreciate you endlessly!
Letter of Gratitude
Write a letter to your nanny, letting them know how much you appreciate them in you and your family’s life. Have the children sign it, and maybe even draw them a picture too. You can always spread even more thanks with an attached gift card to their favorite shopping store or restaurant.
Coffee for the Soul
Treat your nanny to some coffee! Whether that’s a new Nespresso machine, Starbucks or Dutch Bros gift card, or maybe even a new coffee mug, nothing says thank you like a caffeinated pick-me-up. Does your
nanny not drink coffee? Treat them to a sweet treat from a local bakery or cupcake shop. Urban Cookies, Crumble, and Nothing Bundt Cakes are a few of our favorites here in TNJ office!
The Gift of a Car Detail
Treat your nanny to an amazing car detail! Whether they drive your children anywhere or not, everyone loves to drive to work every day in a nice, clean car. It is amazing how a clean car makes you feel going to and from anywhere.
A New Nanny Bag
Spoil your nanny with a new Nanny bag! Whether it’s for travel, daily work or for on-the-go, a new nanny bag is perfect to show your appreciation. Every nanny needs a cute bag to store their items in for the job.
Give Your Nanny a Bonus
Every nanny deserves a little extra! Use this day to show your nanny just how much you appreciate them with a bonus for all their hard work.
Handmade Gifts from the Children
Craft time meets Appreciation week with paints, decorating or paper and arts crafts. Have your children make something to tell their nanny just how much they love them. Every nanny would love to have
a handmade gift from the children they love the most.
Give them a Spa Day
The best way to end NNRW. Give your nanny a nice, relaxing spa day, after all the hard work they have been investing. You can gift them a massage, mani-pedi or even a facial.
A surprise day off
If you have the ability to do so send your nanny home for a half-day or give her a full day off to rest and relax! This will certainly show your nanny how much you love and appreciate them.
Gift of Education
Show your nanny your appreciation by encouraging continued education to help them further their career. There are many options available including Newborn Care Solutions Training Courses, The INA Conference coming up in Las Vegas next spring, or a new childcare-related book. Showing your nanny that you care about her career will be such an appreciated gesture and the perfect way to recognize them during National Nanny Recognition Week!
Big or small tokens of appreciation will certainly go a long way! Celebrate these beautiful individuals who are helping us raise the next generation to be kind, loving, and compassionate humans!
Happy National Nanny Recognition Week!
