Diary of a working mum: What to give the creche staff for Christmas
I find Christmas presents difficult at the best of times. I am ok when it comes to my husband, family and close friends but when it comes to anyone else, I struggle.
And this year, I have a new group to buy presents for – the creche workers who mind my daughter every day while I am at work.
What on earth do buy for somebody who is so incredibly important, so intrinsic to the functioning of your life, so central to the happiness and wellbeing of the person who is most important to you in the world? Someone your child spends most of their waking hours with, but you see only for a few minutes twice a day.
