Gift basket ideas for grandparents?

For Christmas, I want to put together a gift basket for my in-laws who babysit my daughter (3 years old) 3 days a week. What are some things I can include in this basket that are inexpensive and can be used with my daughter?

  • Puzzles, stackable cups, snacks they might enjoy together, books. You could also put in some personal things for just them like coffee or hot chocolate if they drink it, some home made snacks, etc. Even a gift card for them personally (I don't know if they accept money from you or not - that's why I suggested the card) Or you could put ingredients for cookies or a special lunch or something that they could make together. Maybe some coupons or a gift card for a fun activity (museum, aquarium, or anything fun in your area). My in-laws used to keep my children a couple of days a week too so I had a few idea stored up from that time :)
