I used to be a nanny and received designer handbags that ranged between $300-400 but never a weeks pay. I did get end of the year bonus which was a weeks pay. And I was grateful

I used to be a nanny. The best gift I ever got was a weeks pay and a bottle of wine. The extra weeks pay allowed me to take a few days to spend time with my family around the holidays.

What about a spa giftcard

Hamper of favourite things like wine, books, candles/wax melts and chocolate ect xx

The best gift I received as a Nanny was a day spa package and a bonus. It was a complete surprise. I cried, a lot. I had been with them for two years. I never expected anything, I just loved my job. A good Nanny becomes part of the family. Give what feels right to you.

So I've been caring for the same family (three kids) for 3 years, since the youngest was 3 months old. Those kids are my second kids and my kids consider them family as well. We exchange gifts for the kids and they normally give me about a weeks paid time off during Christmas while they're outta town, and then a little bonus. But I never expect anything. I'm grateful to have them and love the entire family more than words! I go above and beyond for the kids, and call the parents some of my closest friends.

We use a home daycare for both girls and agree with the weeks worth of pay, if cash. We bought her and her family a nice package from Omaha steaks with few bottles of wine,jack stack seasoning rubs and a generous Starbucks gc and it still wasn’t a weeks pay.

I gave a week’s pay after working for less than 4 months but then she had to leave :(

I got mine an organic facial at the salon I go to.

Depends on your nanny. Cash was always good. One family I worked for gave me cash with Star Wars or Harry Potter legos every “gift giving” occasion (Christmas, my birthday, my work anniversary). It meant a lot to me.

A weeks pay is typical.

One weeks pay and a photo album of me and the kiddos.

Gift card would be good. An addition to your question maybe someone can answer lol we just had second weekend of a girl babysit for 4 hrs 2 days on the weekend...she will be babysitting just fridays and Saturdays from now on till my mom gets better... Do we still give a gift since we known her for only 2 weeks??

I don’t think so... maybe something really small if you feel the need. $20 to Starbucks or something...

Ah thanks!

I was a nanny for 7 years. The kids always made me something and the parents gave me cash equal to one week of pay.

A little bonus, a mug, one year I got this really cool scarf oh, that I still wear every winter! Maybe a gift card for coffee or a store that they like. It is so sweet of you to think of them! ❤️

Wow I read half these comments thinking of nanny as a grandma. Thank you child of mine for the gracious 4 hours of sleep you allowed me. Anyhow, I say a spa gift certificate especially if they have the sensory immersion spas or floating spas local to you.

I used to be a nanny before I had my little one, I used to look after three boys under 5! It was rewarding but could be a lot of work. If would have been forever grateful if I had been given this x

I always do a gift card to a restaurant and a bottle of wine.

We’re doing a cash bonuses equal to an average weeks pay.

Cash bonus was always the best $100!

Money! Or a gift card! Former nanny here

How much do you give your nanny as a bonus?

1 reply

I was giving $400. But they gave me $50 gift cards for my birthday

Gift certificate to a spa or coffee .🌻

As a nanny myself a nice bonus was always appreciated, they also got my 9 1/2yr old son something too. Also coffee gift card, gift card to a favorite restaurant or takeout, movie theater gift card, gift certificate to a local salon so she can get a Mani/pedi and eyebrow wax (if she does that stuff). Those all were always super nice to receive from the parents!!!!

Cash bonus, or gift cards for services like dry bar or mani/pedi

I gave the main woman that has been caring for my daughter at daycare for the past 6 months a $50 gift card to gap/old navy since I know she shops there. I made a gift basket up to be shared for the rest of the group, it had cozy socks, nice hand lotions, and candy in it.

Mani pedi gift card 🙌🏾

I would say cash or gift cards! If she has mentioned anything shes been wanting maybe get her that if you want to do something more personal but include a gift receipt !

Grocery store or restaurant gift cards. Or an extra $50-100.

A bonus!

Speaking as a former nanny, I’d say a gift card for coffee! When watching kids all day you’re always gonna need a pick me up! Lol
