While you absolutely adore your lil one, sometimes it's nice to get out and enjoy a movie or just plain old adult company. Thanks to babysitters, it's possible. Show them how much you appreciate their help by giving them a gift this holiday season.
Since they help you get out to see a flick every now and then, return the favor and buy them a movie gift card. You can buy them for $5 and up.
For the babysitter who is more like a family member, personalize a photo album of your family for her from Snapfish.com. The small paper ones start at $5 but if you want to spring for a leather or velvet bound book, it will cost you about $50.
And if you are the type of person who could not live without your sitter, don't scoot by on a $5 gift. Put together a gift basket of things to pamper her. A gift certificate to a local salon ($50), a plush Gap robe ($50) and a pair of fuzzy warm UGG slippers ($75) should do the trick.
And for a nice and heartfelt touch, have your lil ones make a sweet homemade card telling her just how much she means to them, too.
