Here are some great ways to show your caregiver how much she means to you and your family.
Give her a surprise day off
A paid day off is a great way to show your nanny you care by letting her get some free time during the week. She can get certain errands that she rarely has time for, or can just have a day of much needed relaxation.
Have the children make her a special gift
There’s no one that spends more time with your nanny than your children. A heartfelt gift from them can mean more to her than anything. Something as simple as a painting or a card will definitely show your nanny how much you and your children care for her.
Your nanny often helps you to prepare meals during the week.
Repay this kindness by making her a meal and inviting her to share it with your family one night – or even take her out to dinner.
Give an unexpected bonus
Everyone can use a little extra cash. An easy way to show your nanny how much you appreciate her this week is by paying her a little extra.
Get her a mani-pedi or a full spa day
Being a nanny is stressful and often a 24/7 job. Give her an opportunity to relax and take care of herself with a mani-pedi or even a full spa day!
Help with an aspect of her life
Does your nanny want to take a class at a nearby college? Or belong to a gym? Maybe give back by giving her the opportunity to meet this need. It can be the best gift you can give them!
Get her a gift, small or large
From a gift card to flowers, a physical gift is one of the easiest ways to demonstrate how much you appreciate your nanny.
Give her a heartfelt card
There is no better feeling than being noticed and appreciated. Write your nanny a genuine card thanking her for all she does.
Just say “thank you”
The easiest way to appreciate your nanny is by simply saying thank you. Although it’s always nice to receive a gift, having your work be appreciated to through words is an amazing feeling.
A nanny’s impact may not always be acknowledged, but it can always be felt through the everyday tasks they do. Recognize your nanny this week (and every week). It’s worth it.
