Wednesdays Creative Nanny :Parent Gifts for Any Season

Several years ago, Mary Ann X. Meddish wrote a wonderful article for the (NAN) National Association of Nannies Newsletter. It was one of the most popular articles on our website for many years so we asked her to update it a little and share it with our Regarding Nannies readers.

Parent Gifts for any season by MaryAnn X. Meddish(2009 INA Nanny of the Year)

Once again it is that time of year where we all start scratching out heads trying to figure out what to get our employers. As a professional nanny, I have been asked for ideas so many times over the years that I started keeping a list of ideas, it keeps changing so here are some tried~n~true and some new ideas for you to refer to all through the year as anniversaries, birthdays, Mother’s and Father’s days, Grandparent’s day, and next years holidays start to gang up on you.Craft gifts you can make with your charges:These ideas can also be used to make gifts for extended family members and the household staff (i.e. an apron for the cook, flowerpots for the gardener, a scrapbook for the Au-pair). Remember that the expense of craft supplies is usually covered by the employers or you can ask for a Christmas allowance for the children to make gifts but if the gift is from you, then you should pay for it.

Read all of Mary Ann's great ideas on Wednesdays Creative Nanny.
