    Default Xmas ideas for carers??

    I've noticed a few other xmas threads and it got me thinking!

    What can we buy/make for ds' carers at childcare??

    Last year I remember a thread with heaps of diy ideas which were all so amazing and cute! I spent an hour or so on pinterest tonight, and while there was heaps of gorgeous ideas, I didn't think they were appropriate.

    I loved the "snowman soup" idea but can't take food (anaphylaxis policy) so throw your ideas at me!

    There are 3 main carers. Late 20s-40s. one has an older son (highschool) and another likes irish dancing....and thats all I know.

    I did think of a plant in a decorated pot, or some candles decorated by ds (2.5 yrs)...

    Plant Potts are a good idea.

    With the no food rule thing I would gift bag it up, I don't think the carers would eat their presents at daycare would they?

    I was going to get one of those fancy boxes of cupcakes from the cupcake bakery for DS's Childcare carers...I thought that if it's for the tea room for the staff it would be ok? Surely the staff can bring there lunch in? Mmmm I'm not sure now

    Please don't get them anything food related! They will get so so many chocolates and biscuits they will be giving it away. A potted plant or a candle decorated by the kids is a great idea. Bath bombs/body lotion stuff is always nice and so is anything made by the kids, even just a card. It really is the thought that counts.

    Thats the other thing...I got so many chocolates as a worker .... The more I think about it, the more I'm leaning towards a plant in a pot decorated by ds.

    What a lovely thread. As a kindergarten teacher I would have to day it's really the thought that counts. If it's home made by the child then it's really special. Maybe if your child is old enough, get them involved in the process of deciding. I have received some truly interesting things before but I love them even more as the child had input.

    The cards I love the best either have a drawing from the child in them or a cute Christmas photo of them inside
