Hi, what would be a reasonable amount to give as a thank you gift for a childminder, as our brief (two-month) contract comes to an end?

(We really liked her but we've moved house and will be employing a nanny now.)

I was thinking 20 quid and a card with a pic of my son? (her day rate is £35.)

I would prob give vouchers rather than cash tbh

£20 would be fine.

I agree re vouchers. Could you get your son to draw a card? Obviously if he's too tiny, a picture of him would be lovely!

We got vouchers at x'mas for a nice restraunt (havn't had time to go yet though sad it was a lovely thought and DH and I were very touched.

Much better than loads of smellys and candles.

I think £20 is a nice amount enough but not to flashy IYNWIM

I'd give vouchers. Maybe for somewhere fairly flexible like John Lewis unless you happen to know where she likes to shop.
