Yesterday, mommiev wrote about her gift-giving dilemma at her daughter’s daycare. I am suffering from a similar dilemma, and I only have today to figure it out.
I definitely want to show some Christmas love to the women that provide care to Foxy on a daily basis. They work hard and put up with my idiosyncracies, so it is important to me to show my gratitude in some sort of way. Two of them have had birthdays this year and I got them each a card with a $5 chick fila gift card in it. Hey, it’s not much but at least I bought them lunch!
Christmas, however, is proving to be much more challenging. There are about 6 women who care for Foxy on any given day. They all love her and are good to her, so I definitely want to get them something, but I simply cannot afford to buy six people gifts.
I thought perhaps I would bake them cookies, but I think people get sick of cookies around the holidays. I thought about picking up a dozen doughnuts and taking them in, but some people don’t come in until 10am. Would they appreciate doughnuts at that point?
I would have liked to have done real presents, but it seems like food is the only budget-friendly idea I can come up with.
What do you think I should do for the 6 women at Foxy’s daycare?
Do you do anything for your child’s caregiver for Christmas?
I need to decide today what I am doing, so your advice is appreciated!
