You’re looking for just the right gift for your nanny but need ideas. Look no further. Here is a list of 22 nanny gift ideas.

To make your gift extra special, have your children (if they are able or with your assistance) make a small gift, craft or card for your nanny. Add a note of appreciation from you. Nannies like to feel respected for the work they do and will enjoy the personal touch.
