Default Gift for couple watching our daughter

We are scheduled for induction with our 2nd child on August 3rd and our neighbors, the Father works with my DH, have offered to keep our daughter while I am in labor/delivery. They always watch her whenever we need them or would like to have a "date night". The love having her and they are so good with her.
I would like to make something to give to them since they are, yet again, volunteering to keep our DD. They do this for free for us and never ask for anything in return. I plan on giving them movie passes to their favorite theater, but would like to make something that would say "thank you for everything you do".
A little background on us: we live about 600 miles away from family, so our neighbors have "adopted" our daughter (and us) as their own. They have two sons, but they are both in college. So, they don't have grandchildren yet. They are always willing to help us with anything and everything.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

what about an altered cd tin or altoid tin with photo's of your DD for them? or maybe a gift basket with the theatre tickets, you could add some goodies to go with them, popcorn, dinner GC.

How about a pocket card with gift card to dinner so that they can have "date night"? Isn't it wonderful to have friends/neighbors that are as close as family? You could also decorate a paint can and fill with various items that are of interest to them...gift card to movie, dinner, etc. You can have your little one make something for them...her handprints in an altered tin scrapbook, photos of her, her artwork. That's all I can think of right now. HTH
BTW...congrats and good luck!!

Hugs, Joanne
