Hill House Home – Nap Dress – The Nap Dress has taken pandemic style by storm. A more chic form of athleisure. A dress that is made for lounging, holds its shape enough to be worn out, and is perfect for those who want to dress up without having to actually get dressed. (It also serves as a pregnancy staple for mama, and you don’t have to size up for your pregnancy!)
SKIMS – Cozy Knit Set – Everything from loungewear to shapewear to underwear. This brand by Kim Kardashian West has a wide array of sizes and shades; it goes up to 4X/5X and has 9 shades to match skin tones. The Cozy Collection has everything including robes, pullovers, tops, shorts, pants and slides to complete the set..
Lululemon – Gift card – No surprise, Lululemon is every nanny’s favorite workwear. Fashionable, functional and comfortable. Lulu has styles, fabrics and sizes for everyone, tons of pockets for all the nanny essentials and lasts a lifetime!
New Phone – Apple or Android, communication is one of the most important jobs a nanny has. Whether it’s sending you pictures of all the fun, texting updates or being prepared in case of an emergency, a new phone is one of those practical gifts that you know will be put to good use and highly appreciated.
Airpods – The Airpods Pro are another nanny essential because they allow for work to get done hands-free. No nanny has time to have a hand be taken up holding a phone! Perfect for safety when driving and an otherwise great listening experience.

Truly is the best thing since sliced bread!
