Childminders christmas present
rubles · 19/12/2005 12:04
What do I get my lovely childminder. She has two sons, 11 and 14, who both interact and help/play with dd lots so I want to get something for her and them, but boys are really difficult.
I thought about gift vouchers to bowling/meal/cinema or something like that, but nowhere local participates in that sort of thing.
So what do childminder's get from their mindees' parents for christmas?
I really want to say thankyou in a nice way to all of them, but they are very different people to me and I actually don't know her that well personally so it is difficult to know.
I am so stuck,

We love our childminder too and in the past have given her a family ticket to a show which was the most successful (her chidlren are a bit younger) I've also given her a beautiful photo frame and vouchers for M&S.
I think vouchers are always welcome and a pretty safe bet as you get to know her. You could do M&S for her and Amazon/HMV for the boys and then maybe add a little personal present for her - really nice handcream? fab chocs? A card saying how much you appreciate her is well worth it too I think and will count for alot.
