I babysit a 5 mos old baby and don't charge her mom very much to do it because she is a newly single mom. At first I didn't charge anything at all because she couldn't handle it.

The baby's great-grandparents have pretty much adopted my family and we had a blast at the mom's home for thanksgiving with the great-grandparents. Now the great-grandparents have invited my friend, her boyfriend and her baby as well as my whole family for an old fashioned Christmas at their house. We are excited to go and feel like we belong as my family has disowned us a long time ago.
Grandma just called to make sure we were coming....and she keeps telling me not to bring anything. I want to show her how grateful we are for their including us as their family, but I don't have much money.
What could I do? What could I give to show my gratitude? HELP!!

  • I'd say a nice box of candy and then you'd be sure she'd enjoy it and possibly share with everyone. Wine is ok if you know she drinks. A basket of chesses, or try and think of things she likes and make a basket, teas, hand soaps, candies, the $ store is great for filling a basket. Good luck.
