The Perfect Gift for Your Host-Family

Time flew by pretty fast during my period as an au pair. It’s been 8 months since I arrived in Holland, and my time as an au pair is coming to an end. I’m not saying goodbye to The Netherlands quite yet, as I will start my new marketing job in May!

Before I left, I wanted to get something nice for my host-family. Finding the right kind of gift is tough but I came across the perfect website for sentimental gifts! I went to https://www.fotofabriek.nl/ to try and find something that I could put a nice personal touch on. I had trouble deciding between a photobook, canvas, or calendar, but ultimately chose a canvas:)

My host-family just got a new dog and didn’t have any pictures of him with the kids. I thought it’d be great to have a little photo shoot and give an updated picture of the kids and dog to my host-family. I decided to print one and share all the photos with them in a google drive folder so they could have more to add to their own photobooks. Honestly, scheduling time with the kids was more complicated than ordering the photo itself!
