My best friend is house/pet sitting for us for 2 weeks. We have 2 little dogs and I’d say they’re of low to medium maintenance but she really loves the dogs, so that helps.
She lives with her parents so on one hand it’ll be nice to get some privacy, on the other I know that pet sitting can be a pain in the ass and our house is nothing special, save the tv and laptop haha. Plus the 2 dogs that need care. Very little mail collection, no outside maintenance, only a few small plants to water. Commute is a little shorter from our place but not enough to get excited over.
She doesn’t expect any compensation and was right on top of saying “yes” when we asked but I’m trying to figure out what a good gift would be.
We’re both sort of low income, though she’s come a long way since moving home. Anyway… so far I’m planning on leaving a bottle or two of wine, a stocked pantry and fridge, some of her favourite drinks, a $50 gift card for groceries, more if the pantry is more sparse, plus some cash for incidentals, a souvenir when we return and…?
What else? Suggestions? I don’t think she would accept straight cash so maybe another gift or a few more things to make her stay more comfortable?
