Every nanny and family relationship is different. Ensuring you keep professional boundaries while creating a warm relationship can be a challenge. One of the best ways to acknowledge an employer’s birthday is to present a gift you can give with your charges. For example, if your boss is a coffee drinker, you could work with the children to decorate a coffee mug and you could include a small gift card to her favorite coffee shop. Another idea could be to take a photo of the children and purchase a frame for the children to decorate. Not only are these gifts thoughtful, they allow you to give a personalized gift while maintaining professional boundaries.
