Gift for daycare provider- Budget101 Discussion List

My daughter attends a wonderful home daycare, and I want to get the woman something to show my appreciation. I only have about $15 to spend. She's not really the candles and bath oil type - more practical. I considered a gift card to Target, but a $15 card wouldn't seem like much.

    How about a plate of homemade goodies with the gift card? Or a box of

    craft materials that she can use in the day care? Does she read? If so,

    see if you can find out who she reads and find her a book she might not

    have.



    Is she a coffee drinker? For my MIL this year, I'm going to get a

    basket, get 2 new coffee mugs, 2 containers of flavored powdered

    creamer, and some flavored coffee to make. She goes though a LOT of

    coffee (it's all she drinks), so I know she'll love it, and it's kind

    of a set your own price thing.

    If she likes to eat out, try
    restaurant.com – right now they have $25 GC for $4. These are ones that
    you buy and print directly from your printer at time of purchase. If you’d
    like a referral link to the site, LMK and I’ll send one over.

    If you are crafty you could knit her a pair of slippers or maybe make a basket fill if homemade cookies, teas, and hot chocolate.

    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="989433717-28112007">What about a GC to Bed, Bath & Beyond or Linens & things.
    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="989433717-28112007">They have inexpensive things are if she is a homemaker, she would love it. She can always add her own funds if she wants to get something more expensive. Or, there is a fee (I think 10% or $2.50), you can always get a Visa Giftcard - she can use it anywhere.

    I used to do day care in my home, for 24 years. Any gift was appreciated, but alas, not many given. A gift certificate to someplace she shops would be wonderful. For example, if she does crafts, then a gift cert. for Michaels, Joanns, or Hobby Lobby would be nice.
    If she shops at discount stores like Target or Walmart, then a cert. for those kind of shops would be nice. Even a big box of candy, or some fresh flowers, just something to show that you appreciate the care she is giving. I applaud you on doing this. It will make her day, believe me

    Does she bake? You could get her a piece of silicone bakeware (currently a "hot" item) and add a baking mix. You can either make one yourself (think of the type in a mason jar, tied with a nice ribbon) OR buy a mix of your choosing. You could bake her cookies, homemade bread, a cake, etc. from your daughter and yourself. A nice ornament for the tree. My son attends a center and I am going to bake a cake or two (very economical) OR cookies for the staff and his teacher. They are wonderful with him. Buying individual gifts for that many people would be cost prohibitive. However, they have all said that they love to eat. So, I am going to bake them something tasty for their lounge area. For things going to the children, they are more restrictive. For themselves, the adult staff, we can give them whatever. I am thinking of a
    couple of bundt cakes or some fudge or cookies. We have things in the pantry to cook up a snack all the time. Which reminds me, I need to hit the store for the sales on chocolate chips, etc. while they are on sale. I buy 10-12 bags at a time to have on hand. Herlean

    How about a gift card to a restaurant from restaurant.com there you find giftcard for less, like a $25 for 5 or so. We have tried it and it works. Just a suggestion. Thanks, Maja, MN

    I am a home childcare provider and all of the gifts that people listed

    sound wonderful

    I would love to recieve a gift card maybe a restaurant, or michaels or

    any store really. I would not have any problem with it being $15

    dollars.

    Or maybe something she likes. I am a coffee drinker, so one of my

    parents give me a gc to Starbucks. I love crafts with the kids and one

    parents gives me a gc to michaels. One gives me a gc to a restaurant.

    One gives me a huge plate of goodies for my family.

    All is appreciated. It makes me feel good that parents want to give me

    anything.

    Hope it helps

    For a gift for a daycare provider-

    How about $15 to Michael's or a craft store. The home

    daycare provider that I help out does crafts twice a

    week and that cost adds up. You can get alot at

    Michael's for $15.

    Or Maybe gift cards for Panera or Dunkin Donuts. That

    would cover a few coffees and pastry treats or she

    could go out for Lunch. Time alone with yummy treats

    is always nice.

    Add a nice note of appreciation- that really goes a

    long way.

    Good Luck

    Hi - I've used a Restaurant.com gift certificate - you may want to make sure

    that there are restaurants in their area that will take them - ALSO, my

    coupon was for $25 off but ONLY if I spent $35 or more (at this particular

    restaurant), and a lot of them are like that, so just check it out, but it

    was great, the restaurant didn't give me any problems taking it or anything!

    I have used them several times. The also
    have a yearlong expiration date; you do need to read the limitations though.
    Some state you have to spend so much to use it or you have to buy a certain
    number of adult entrees. I was leery at first, too, but figured for a couple
    of dollars I would try it.



    I also bought one to a local restaurant
    that closed before I could use it. They replaced it as soon as I contacted
    them. The certificates have a number on them so I guess that’s how they know
    if you use it or not.



    The also have a referral program where you
    earn free $10 GC when your referral buys their first one. I’d be happy to send
    a link to anyone interested.

    <span style="font-family:Papyrus;color:#69316D;">If you
    know they celebrate Christmas, a nice holiday-print kitchen towel set has always
    been well received when I’ve given it and its very inexpensive at Walmart
    to get two towels, a dish cloth and a pot holder – usually around $5.
