This time of year client often call to ask what type of bonus they should give their nanny for Christmas. Here are a few suggestions to get you started. Feel free to be creative for your family and nanny.
We recommend the following depending on how long the nanny has been with you:
- One week of pay- which is equivalent to 2% of the nanny’s annual salary
- One week of vacation- time off with pay- also equivalent to 2% of the nanny’s annual salary. (Although any additional time off over the holidays is appreciated.)
- A spa gift certificate
- Other gift certificates (if you know your nanny’s favorite place to shop/eat/enjoy)
- Visa gift card
You can also think outside the box.
Do you have lots of air miles? Can you fly your nanny home for Christmas or pay for a vacation? This is a huge benefit to your nanny but is no cost to you.
Time off – Can you give you nanny extra paid time off?
