  • I'd get her something.. A blouse or something like that. She's been watching your child!! Our babysitter is like an extended part of our family and we get her something every year. She gets something for each one of us too.

  • A gift card to Target, Walmart, Pizza Hut, or somewhere you are sure she goes would be nice. I love it when I get gift cards.

  • That would be really sweet of you... shows her that you appreciate her as a person and as a babysitter.

  • When I used to baby-sit I always thought it was really generous and sweet of the families when they got me a little something for Christmas. I have been gifted anything from restaurant gift certificates, store gift cards, a purse, lotions, etc. However, even some homemade cookies would be sweet if money is tight for your family.

  • YEP! I think it's a good idea! We get our girl a gift card because I know she loves to shop, but I'm just not up on fashion for her age group, lol ! I know her favourite stores so I just give her a $30 gift certificate with a I get the kids to make her something, like christmas ornaments

  • You can get her a giftcard from her favorite store or restaurant and have the kids make her something. :)
