Personalised Leather Wrap Dice Bracelet from Merci Maman £49

If your nanny really loves your children (!) get them this bracelet with each initial on it.



Lit Fabulous Plaque from Next £40

If you find it hard to tell them how much you value them, show them with this battery operated wall hanging from Next.  Next also do lots of different wall lights, including the popular box lights where you can change the words around. Worth a look!


I hope this has helped. A nicely written card is also a good addition to a present. After all, you want them to comeback after Christmas!!!
