hi all- my nanny is leaving at the end of the month after two years with us. she's been v good and reliable and my daughter has grown v attached to her. i would like to give her a leaving gift, any ideas? she is really not into clothes or accessories and i don't want to buy something hugely expensive, just a token that will make her remember us and our dd. any ideas? thanks!
Hi, I used to be a nanny, and I've still got one of my leaving presents,an ornament of a toy box with toys inside.You could get her an ornament which will remind her of your daughter.Those ones that have no face,can't remember who they are by, but they're beautiful.
Nice big bouquet of flowers to say thank-you and perhaps a smart photo frame with a good pic of your dd in it. This is what I received when I left my old job, and also a rather cute soft toy which my own children now love. I still keep the photo out and the children I looked after are now 18 and 21.
If that doesn't float her boat, then maybe a nice silver keyring would be nice. You could have it engraved with a short message. It would be a useful keepsake.
ok- it aint gonna be tiffany's, not only it's way above my budget but i really doubt she would appreciate it! i think i will go for picture frame with a pic of my dd (i suppose she can always take dd's picture out...). plus a really cool swiss sports water bottle to replace the rather grotty bottle of evian she keeps refilling.
Im a good nanny, and stay in my jobs for years - and normally leave them as children ago to school, or famillies move miles away, so i get made redundant, so yes I normally get a 4/5 weeks redundacy money AND a months bonus as well
The bonus is always a suprise but i EXPECT and DESERVE the redundacy pay off - just as if any of you lose your jobs after 5 years, you would get money
