    If you already have plenty and she's only 1, I would just get her something like a new outfit and a couple of books, or one small toy. She won't know the difference, and you won't be buying stuff just for the sake of buying it.

    Exactly this. Just things you would have to buy for her anyway. A few things you can't take photos of her opening.

    I actually bought my DD a Swarovski crystal blue love heart pendant so it's a bit of a keepsake / sentimental value that when she's older she will be told and remember it was her birthday present for her first birthday.

    I don't buy toys as presents much anymore. I tend to buy nice outfits or special pj's for friends kids.
