Your nanny is an essential part of your family. Thanks to your nanny, you have more time to spend with your kids and can trust that they are well cared for when you can’t be there.
The holiday season is a perfect time to show your nanny how much you appreciate all the time and care they give to your children and your family. If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift, we’re here to help!
Get some input from your kids as you decide what to give your nanny. After all, they’re the ones who spend the most time together!
These 10 holiday gift ideas for nannies can get you started.
1. A homemade project from your kids
Let your kids get creative making something their nanny will love. A homemade card, a personalized picture frame with a photo of your nanny and your children, or a scrapbook are all fun ways to show your nanny how much your kids love and appreciate them.
If you want to give your nanny more than an art project, you can supplement it with something else on our list.
2. Charm bracelet
A charm bracelet captures memorable moments and memories. You can give your nanny a charm bracelet with one or two charms this year, then add more charms throughout the year or on special occasions. Or, you can get a customized nanny charm bracelet with a removable charm.
3. Waterproof watch
An organized nanny always needs to keep an eye on the clock. That’s why an elegant waterproof watch makes a great gift! Check out this rose gold waterproof wristwatch that is both stylish and functional. Your nanny will be able to wear it to work and out on the town.
4. Customized ornament
If your nanny celebrates Christmas, a customized Christmas tree ornament can be an excellent way to remind them of how much your family appreciates them. They will use it year after year, even after the kids are grown up.
If you’re feeling really stuck, nannies can always use cash! Giving them a holiday card with a thoughtful message and some money can be all your nanny needs to know that you see and appreciate all their hard work.
6. Tote bag
You’ve probably noticed that your nanny never shows up empty-handed. Nannies always carry more supplies than they need because they never know what the day will bring! Give your nanny a place to put all that extra stuff with a heavy-duty tote bag that speaks to their life as a nanny.
7. Insulated water bottle
Your nanny is always on the move, which can make it a challenge to stay hydrated. An insulated water bottle is a great gift that your nanny will be able to use during the holiday season and beyond.
8. Tea drinking set
After a long day of work, your nanny might want to come home and relax with a cup of tea and a snack. A luxury tea drinking set is a unique gift your nanny might not otherwise buy for themselves.
9. Coffee mug warmer
If your nanny is a coffee drinker, they will love this gift! This coffee mug and warmer will keep your nanny’s coffee warm all morning long, so they never have to worry about drinking a cold cup of coffee again.
The holidays are stressful for everyone, including nannies. Give a gift of relaxation in the form of a trip to a local spa or an at-home massager that lets your nanny unwind at the end of the day.
While there’s no rule that says you have to give your nanny a gift during the holidays, it’s a nice gesture that reminds your nanny of how much they mean to your whole family. Browse My Nanny Gift to find lots of other holiday gift ideas for nannies.
