The Gifted Babysitter

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.

We gave our sitter a card made by my son with his picture and a book by my favorite author. (She and I have a shared love of reading). It's kind of lame but it's one of the only things we have in common except for of course our love for my son.

I sit for the greatest family a couple times a month. They got me a gift card to the movies and it was the best gift ever. considering they have kept me employed, and their little one is so well behaved, i really didn't need anything.

Great ideas!! We have a regular sitter who has been taking care of our son since he was about 18 months. When she finished grad school we gave her a Longchamp bag I knew she wanted. She is now a teacher and still sits for us on occasion and during the summer. For the high schooler who does an occasional weekend... we gave her a pair of movie tickets and a little extra cash at her last visit this past weekend for Christmas this year.
