Your nanny’s first day should be special for the entire family. They are likely just as nervous and excited as you are! That’s why many families give their nanny something small on their first day to help them feel welcome in their home.
You are not obligated to get anything for your nanny’s first day, but it can be a very welcome gesture that helps them feel more at ease as they settle into their new role. Here are some ideas for gifts your nanny will appreciate.
1. Ceramic coffee mug
Many nannies enjoy drinking a hot cup of coffee or tea in the morning or during the day. Having a unique nanny-themed ceramic coffee mug ready and waiting for them on their first day can help them feel more at home in your kitchen. This can be the mug they use in your home or one they take home.
There are lots of options here. For example, you can choose a mug with a funny saying, like “Coffee, kids, sleep, repeat,” to add some humor to your nanny’s first day. Or you can order a personalized mug with their name on it. If you know your nanny’s preferences, add some tea bags, cocoa packets, or coffee to it to complete the gift.
2. Insulated water bottle
Nannies are on the go, whether they are staying at the house with the kids or taking them on adventures throughout the day. That’s why an insulated water bottle is an excellent gift for your nanny on her first day.
Our black, white, mint green, and red vacuum-insulated water bottles are durable and can hold 22 ounces of liquid. They keep cold drinks cold for up to 48 hours and hot beverages warm for up to 12 hours. They are available for personalization by adding your nanny’s name in multiple colors and font types.
3. Gift basket
Not sure what your nanny likes yet? No problem! Everyone loves a gift basket full of beautiful discoveries.
For example, this organic spa set has relaxing lotion and body wash, plus some delicious treats your nanny can enjoy when her first day of work is over. If you know your nanny has a sweet tooth, you can get her this donut gift basket that includes sweet treats, a donut-themed mug, hot chocolate, and more.
4. Beyond Blessed nanny diaper backpack
If your nanny is caring for an infant or toddler, they might need a place for diapers, wipes, bottles, snacks, and everything else that comes with the job. This durable diaper backpack is perfect for your nanny to grab and take on the go. Fill it with the essentials she’ll need for her first outing with our child to ensure it goes as smoothly as possible.
