Caregivers do a lot for littles and it is nice to let them know they are loved and appreciated. Little’s can show their caregiver how thankful they are for them in the form of a gift, special surprise, and words or actions. No matter how big or how small your idea is to show your caregiver you are thankful for them, they will love it and remember it forever. To help you feel inspired, here are seven cute things little’s can do for their caregivers to show they care.
- Create/ Make Them A Gift
Homemade gifts are always a sweet way to show someone special you care. Making a gift means it is one of a kind because it was specially made for them. You can color or draw them a picture, decorate a frame to place a photo of the two of you in, make a craft, or plenty more. There are so many options and tutorials online to inspire you or help you in the creating department.
- Clean Up Around The House
Did your caregiver just leave the house for a few hours? Jump at the chance to spruce everything up around the house! It is the perfect opportunity to surprise them with a clean space when they return. You can do chores they normally would, or other basic cleaning like laundry, vacuuming, or tidying up the living room. Anything and everything can help and put a smile on their face when they return.
- Plan A Date
Planning a date for just the two of you is super adorable! It will show your caregiver that you truly care for them and have taken time out of your day to plan something special for them. The date does not have to be expensive or grand because in the end, all that matters is enjoying the time spent with each other.
- Pack Them Lunch
Packing your caregiver a lunch for them to eat during their long day of work can put a smile on their face. Just imagine their reaction when they open and enjoy it during their lunch break. It will be the highlight of their day. Some fun ideas of items you can include in their lunch are a handwritten note from you, healthy snackies to show you care, and a fun shaped sandwich.
- Surprise Them With A Relaxing Day/Evening
A super sweet idea to surprise your caregiver with is to plan a relaxing day or evening! Then they can just sit back and relax. You can pick out some movies to watch in a fort or cozy area of your choosing. Making a meal or ordering one in can also help your caregiver relax. Don’t forget to give them lots of cuddles and kissies as well, maybe even a massage!
- Plan A Day Where You Do Whatever They Want
Caregivers often can ignore their wants and needs to keep their little happy. While there is nothing wrong with this, caregivers need some time to do activities they want to do. A great way to accomplish this is to take one day every week, few weeks or however often you want and allow your caregiver to choose what they want to do for the day. You can go out to eat, have a spa day, play mini golf, or watch a sports game. There is an endless amount of activities you can do together!
- Tell Them How Much They Mean To You
Even though people say actions speak louder than words, there’s something special about hearing how much you mean to someone. It does not need to be some long thought out message, just a simple “ I love you “ or “ You mean so much to me” will do the trick, but telling someone why you love them and why they mean so much to you is nice too!
