Just occurred to me that i finish for Xmas on Monday and have completely forgotten to sort their Xmas gifts hmm

I'll do something from the kids but I like to buy them each a little something

They're not really "photos round the house people" , neither work in offices so don't have photos on their desks, have done about 5 mugs since I've been there, but what they want when they want and my budget is £20 combined (normally more but I'm broke now!!)

Does anyone have any ideas!? Argh!

Something practical for the home, such as new egg cups?

I did a photo bauble for the tree - kids in Xmas outfits (boots) a photo calendar (snapfish) and made some mince pies.

Ah from you?

Do they like nice coffee? Nice biscuits or crackers for am evening snack, my lot would appreciate a star ucks gift card and a free hour to grab a coffee together,

I usually go for a really nice bottle of wine or a bottle of champagne if I can find it on special offer.

I once gave a cinema gift card and a "voucher" for a free babysit. That went down well and didn't cost a fortune!

Neither of my nannies has given me a Christmas present! They've given presents to the kids. I wouldn't expect one.

(maybe they just didn't like me..... fsad)

I've never given my bosses a Christmas present!

I make things from my charges to them. This year we made salt dough tree ornaments and a bauble. I've done photo Christmas cards and family organiser. I've taken some great photos of my charge so have printed them A3. They can decide what to do with them! I have spent a bit in my charge though!!

I normally give my bosses a babysitting golden ticket. One free week day babysit up to 11 o clock. The value comes in around £50. My thinking is that they earn more than me and I can't buy them anything they cant buy for themselves so giving them a night out free of charge is something they appreciate.
