Best Holiday Gifts for Your Babysitter

Savvy moms know that showing thanks to the women (and men) that make it possible to be a parent and earn a living. First off, let's talk about full-time caregivers that work regular shifts. Accordign to Emily Post, they should get a holiday tip of "One week’s pay and a gift from your child(ren)."  You'll have to take care of the cash, we'll help you pick a cool gift.

For caregivers on the go, we love the Golla Bags from Finland Golla Mobil Bags are perfect for an iPod or iPhone and will only set you back about $15.

For a trendy sitter I adore these Marc Jacobs wrap bracelets ($78) come in three colors are are sure to punch-up her wardrobe and unlike earrings-she won't have to worry about the kiddies yanking on them!

Many sitters log a lot of miles taking care of the kids.  Treat their feet right with a pair of  Ugg Australia Woman Classic Short Boots ($140). We love this bright Pacific Blue color--but you can't go wrong with a classic brown or black.

Coffee lover always appreciate gift cards to the local java shop.  Pair the gift with a personalized photo mug of her with your kids.  From $13.99 on Shutterfly.

These super soft, Room It Up Fun Flower cozy fleece throws can help you check off the teenage sitter on your list. They'll love curling up in a plush blanket to watch movies or study. ($22)
