Default Gift Ideas for Caregivers???

Hi everyone...

The holiday season is here and my mom moved to a Senior's Residence this year and would like to give a gift of appreciation for Christmas to those that assist with her living. Her Personal Support Worker is fabulous, she goes over and above for little pay.

Any ideas for a gift would help as I'm the one doing the shopping for her.

Thanks for your help!!!

How about a little "pampering" type of gift, especially since she does so much for others? Maybe a gift card to a local spa or salon, or even just a goodie basket with manicure items, scented lotion, bath treats, etc. Something she wouldn't ordinarily purchase/make for herself.... You could add a packet of hand-stamped notecards as well. Just a thought...

Great idea Vicki, thanks so much for your help. Sometimes it so hard to know what to get.

gift cards!! workers appreciate any thoughtfulness but they are underpaid and often need money. i gave cards to practical places like Target where they could get just about anything. so nice of your mom to appreciate the staff.

ITA about the gift cards. Even a gift card to the local grocery store with a note to "treat yourself" would be appreciated.
