    Ohmygod, you ladies are amazing. They are brilliant ideas that I would never of thought of.

    I really love that some are so special, but don't cost the earth! It honestly has given me butterfly's.

    Ok emailing all these ideas to myself so I don't lose them!

    Thank you so much. Can't tell you how much I appreciate it 😊

    We did a time capsule filled with special things and mementos from her first year and letters from family and friends for her to open on her 18th birthday.

    As well as the pile of toys and books... But the time Capsule was our special gift to her.

    We were talking about this yesterday as my niece was 1 yesterday

    We got dd1 a smart trike, she's 3 next month and still using it

    And with another dd due in 5 weeks I think it was one of the best presents we bought

    Just for something for different, we got our son a massive cubby/fun house. It's a split level thing with a slide and a couple of blackboards and fun things. It cost just over $2,000, but if we had family or friends asking for gift ideas we suggested donation to the cubby fund. He's 15 months now and has finally worked out how to get up the stairs by himself, but beforehand loved going down the slide or playing up the top with daddy!
    I'll try and upload a photo, but it's being a bugger right now!

    We got our DD a doll i found on ebay. It was beautifly handmade, i got her name printed on the dolls dress. It only cost $40 all up. She can play with it now without ruining it, also when she's older it will look pretty sitting on her bed. I hope it's something she will keepsake forever.

    We didnt want to go overboard with her 1st birthday present, we wanted something simple but special and from our hearts.

    My sister made DD a DVD of her 1st year, complete with music and voice over. She lives the other side of the country and it was such a gorgeous idea. DD watches it and dances to the songs. It's also how she remembers her Aunty who lives far away!

    Does she like dolls? I still have two special dolls from when I was a child ( one I was given at birth the other for my 6th day), it's something she can play with now and also keep for later
