and you were a tall-ish blond was-size-10 but now very pregnant 25-yr old about to have her second child, would you like this as a leaving present: hoodie
or would you prefer cash? She normally dresses in (I'm guessing) Miss Selfridge, Topshop, "Bench" - skinny jeans and long-ish tops with boots. I'm a short 43 yr-old - am I in the right ball park?

I go with cash or vouchers or shops that she likes. Hoodie is lovely though.

I've seen that in the shop and its gorgeous.

Use the code aut09 and you should get 20% off.

Yes - I'm someone else's nanny and I think it's gorgeous.

I think it is lovely but if her usual shops are the ones you suggest she could get a lot in each of them for that money.

That's really lovely! And she probably won't be treating herself for a while - cash will probably go on the baby. I'm someone's nanny and I like it when employers get me a more personal present than cash (although that was appreciated when I was a struggling student!).

thanks for the code! Although the consensus appears to be cash so far...

Sounds a bit silly but my lovely nanny (as in grandmother) used to give me money and a few clippings of things she thought were beautiful for me to spend it on.

I got a £30 voucher from mil for my birthday and though it wasn't for a shop I usually go to I really enjoyed my hour or so trying things on and shopping for something for me. Vouchers aren't always a cop out!

OHH Can I be your nanny please..what a lovely leaving pressie

monkeysmama Fri 30-Oct-09 21:20:08

I thought about this again earlier when I got a lovely pressie through the post from my sister from Figleaves (I have a wonderful sister grin)

Underwear was one thing I really wanted after dd and thought was a real extravagance. Could be a nice voucher?
