My 5 month old daughter is in daycare 4 half days a week. The ladies who take care of the babies are wonderful. She is always happy to be dropped off, and is usually smiling when I return. They keep her clean, fed, stimulated and have given me good advice (both are experienced mothers). Since this is my first daycare experience, do you tip the ladies at XMas or do you give them a gift? If you tip, how much do you give? Would something like a Target gift card be good? Originally I was thinking 50 each, but some of my friends (who do not have to put their babies in daycare) think money isn't appropriate. Then, I was thinking 50 each in a Vera Bradley Hipster or Coach wristlet, but DH said that would be too much money (around 100 total each). Thoughts are appreciated!
