I'm looking for ideas for what to get for our babysitter throughout the year. She is babysitting my son free of charge while I'm on maternity leave. I am overwhelmed by her generosity and she insisted she didn't want any money. She lives with her husband and is older. I need some creative ideas. Pretend money is not an issue. What would be an awesome gift? Obviously I'm not buying her a car, but the realm of a hundred or even a couple hundred if the idea is right. I'm putting aside what we would have paid her because really is saving us a ton. So far I think I'm going to get her a flower arrangement for Thanksgiving. I have no ideas for Christmas, end of the year, any other holidays. Any cool ideas out there? TIA

A spa package, send her an edible arrangement, tickets for the movies or another event, restaurant gift cards so she can enjoy a night or two out with her husband..
