1st Birthday Gift Ideas
12-01-2013 05:57 #2
Play phones/remotes/etc - toys with buttons & lights & sound
MegaBloks - my first blocks
Board Books - especially ones with touchy/feely bits in them, or wheels on the bottom to turn the book into a toy.
Soft dolls for the girls (some boys might be interested in dolls, but not all)
Beach towels (the hooded ones are great for this age)
Sun hats with straps for under the chin
Inflatable wading pool
Puzzles (2 - 4 piece with big knobs on each piece for easy handling)
Ride on cars/trains/etc
Hope this helps

Actually the best present I received for my daughters first birthday was a material swimming bag and really nice beach towel. The bag is great as I can just wash it with the swimmers afterwards.

As Christmas has only just passed I would get stuff which is aimed at 18 month olds so that it lasts a bit longer and you are not buying more stuff in a few months. DS got a lovely wooden shape sorter for his 1st birthday, which is something that will last. Musical instruments are also a favourite here. Wooden puzzles are also a bit hit.
Ds also loves story books. Julia Donaldson has some great picture story books which you can read as bedtime stories now and when your child is older then can read themselves. The Gruffalo, Tiddler and What the Lady Bird Heard are all lovely.
Crayons, pencils and rolls of plain paper will also last a while. DS also has an aquadoodle which is a great first drawing experience and it is mess free :-)
