Should I get them a gift? If so, what kind?

When my neighbor gets her grandkids my dd usually spends the night. The kids love each other and since they only get to see each other on the weekends she spends a lot of time over there. They are on a fixed income and I can totally understand how feeding an extra kid (not that they mind)can hurt your already tight budget so to say thanks for always having my dd over I thought I would get them something. Do you think that would be okay. Honestly I do not know too much about them so I am not sure what to get them. A gift card to go out and eat maybe? I just wanted to make sure it was an okay idea before doing it.

Gift card is a great idea! Why don’t the grandkids stay with you every now and then?

A gift card is nice or you could send your daughter with a basket full of things the kids would like for a sleepover.  Movie, games, popcorn, breakfast items etc.....make it fun ( if they are girly girls sent a kit with nail polish and makeup. Spa masks etc)

i think anything you do would be appreciated.

I think that'd be a very nice thing to do. Maybe ask your daughter what types of food they serve to get a better idea of what restaurant to get one for

I think it would be nice of you to invite them over for one of the meals per weekend too :) How about taking them to the movies once in a while? Maybe offer to have pizza delivered one evening while your daughter is there?

And a gift card for a restaurant is a great idea too:)

All these ideas are great! Maybe a gift card for a market nearby or a restaurant. Even a Visa gift card, domino's gift card or basket full of edible goodies would be awesome!

Another thing you can do is, offer to buy pizza or make a dish for dinner the night your dd is over and/or send snacks.

I would offer to order pizza for them. Or send over popcorn and snacks. Or send over homemade muffins for breakfast or offer to cook breakfast the next morning.
