My 1 year old son started to go to a home daycare this year, 5 days a week. I am thinking of giving Christmas gift to his sitter, a lady who runs the home daycare.
What will be the appropriate amount to spend on the gift? Also, do you have any ideas for the gift?
I am open to all the suggestions. Thank you in advance.

What can I do next?

You can't go wrong with lotion or a gift certificate. I would say between 10-20 dollars to spend. Remember this lady watches your child. I have been working in childcare and I always like to recieve something. It makes you feel wanted. YOu can always get some lotion and have your one year old make something for his lady. Like card. Make a hand print or so. It makes us Childcare ladies feel loved.... whether store bought or made
