10 Top gift ideas for your Nanny/Manny

Lifestyle, Nanny, Tips and Advice

With the holiday season almost upon us, here are some ideas for gifts your Nanny/Manny will LOVE!

Bonus – This is always the best gift a Nanny/Manny can receive, cash in hand is wonderful especially if given a few weeks before the holidays. Your Nanny/Manny can then choose how to spend the money and who doesn’t need extra cash just before Christmas? How much to give as a bonus is always a tricky question.

A Spa Day! – Aww, wouldn’t that be awesome? A nice massage, a mani and pedi and maybe even a new haircut, your Nanny would love you for this one!

International Nanny Association Membership – This is really inexpensive $45 and it will open your Nanny/Manny’s world up to a host of ideas, networks and support.

Ticket to one of the many Nanny Conferences – Why not give both your Nanny/Manny and your family a gift? Sending your Nanny to a conference will enable her/him to grow professionally as well as give you and your family the best the profession can offer. There are many conferences to choose from, here is a list of Associations who offer training throughout the year.


An online course – there are many reputable Trainings you could offer your Nanny, here are some of the ones I have had experience with NannyTrainings.com NewbornCareSolutions

A Gym Membership – most Nannies/Mannies cannot afford a gym membership so why not get them one for Christmas? A healthy Nanny/Manny is a happy Nanny/Manny.

Gift Cards – Anyone can use one, there are gift cards for everything nowadays, the movies, the grocery store, various stores, and so much more. And just like the bonus, who doesn’t like some extra cash over the holidays?

A concert or Broadway show – How about some entertainment for your Nanny/Manny who has worked so hard all year?

Apple gear – for your nerdy and hip Nanny/Manny, how about an Apple phone, a watch or a new laptop, an ipad or an ipod?

A gift the children have made – Nannies/Mannies love the children in their care and a gift from the heart, a gift made by the child is always worth millions!
