Fantastic smelly candle, a Tiffanys voucher ... well it went down well for a nanny I know in London!

ipod shuffle?

now jura and crokky, both of those are actually pretty good ideas... if only i could get the damn photo printer to work... will have to take a memory card down to boots instead. thanks! and ipod thingy is v good idea, better 'subtly' find out of she has anything of that ilk already (ive never seen one) and you need a pc for ipod too, dont you? dunno if she has one (always uses mine here)

spa/beauty vouchers

amazon vouchers are a good idea - im always on there

It's not very original but I think a voucher is best. I would giver her a boots voucher - pretty much all young women love to go mad in Boots.

is she going to be living in her place if so some vouchers for marks and spencers may be nice coz she has option of buying some nice food with it or bits for her home or clothes.

maybe just a cheque for x amount then a photo of your children in a frame with a card made by the children.

wouldnt worry too much about it, something simple and thoughtful are the nicest gifts.

personally i would love a green and blacks hamper from their website but then i could eat a bar of that butterscotch choc a night (ok an hr but dont tell anyone!!)

Hi- I was a nanny for 10 years (long time ago now!!)
One job I left they gave me a day at the Sanctuary in Covent Garden, that was very nice, another family gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers & pics of the kids & cards they had made which were beautiful. It was never a case of ooh they spent loads of money it was more that they had thought about what I liked & spent time making the cards with the children.
Also, a family I worked for took me out for a meal which was also great, & they got me Theatre vouchers-
Hope these suggestions help. smile
