Hi our first au pair will be leaving us very soon and I'd like to get her something to say thank you and good bye. Has anyone got any ideas and what do people normally do when au pairs leave (how big or small a present is the "norm"?)? All advice from veteran au pair mums gratefully received .
I've given mine handbags, tiffany keyrings, our first was only here for the summer so I just got some really nice nail varnish +photos of us all in a little frame. The last au pair I gave some money to as well.
Current au pair just wants the cash as she'll be moving to London and getting a proper job (teaching) and needs it for a deposit. But I'll get her a little photo as well.
Bought last one concert tickets for a show as a surprise. Clubbed together with best friends hostmum so both girls could go. They went to the Summertime ball and said it was the best day of their year here.
