My DD starts pre-prep this week. She has been with a fantastic CM since she was 9 months (now 3.9). CM treats her and other mindee like children she never had and definitely does for love not money. I would like to get her a gift from DD to say 'thanks'. Willing to spend up to £100. She is 50,doesn't drink or drive. Her hobbies revolve around two mindees. Any ideas?

We just bought our childminder a digital photo frame. She absolutely loved it. She has two different storage cards - one with photos of her mindees which she plays during the day with they're with her, and one with photos of her family on for weekends etc.

What a lovely thought :-)

Does your CM have a particular perdume she likes? Or maybe vouchers for getting her nails/hair done?

Hope your DD settles into pre-prep well.

Thanks - Great idea for photoframe.

LisaD1 - She does wear perfume, but I got her that for her Easter Gift. Nails good idea to - she spent £10 getting a manicure once and thought it was a lot smile. Maybe I could get photoframe for keeps and nails for a one off pamper.

WOW, Just that WOW

Gosh, what a fab parent you are smile

What about a gift voucher for a pampering session at a local salon - I once got one and had the most lush facial/massage ever. Just what she needs at the end of a busy week

How about something for the children she cares for to use - puppets.

Nails/Pampering session at local salon sounds nice.

Thanks guys. Really liking the pampering idea as she spends no time/money on herself. It's all about the children. It's her birthday in a few weeks so I'll get the photoframe for that.
