I still can't quite believe that my gorgeous baby girl has turned one. I mean seriously where did that time go!? It feels like only yesterday I was sharing on social media about the arrival of Pickle and now we have a walking, talking one year old terrorising us around the house! As we celebrate her first birthday it only feels right that I share a few first birthday gift ideas that I think make perfect presents for that all important first birthday!
My First Year Frame
I never had a frame like this for Squidgy which I kind of regret, and I think it may be something that I need to invest in and do... better late than never right?
For Adventures and Playtime
She also recieved a few extra Duplo sets from other members of the family and has her own box full of it now too! There is so much choice available in the LEGO Duplo range, so it is the perfect birthday gift for every budget.
Toy Phone (in some vain attempt to stop them chewing on ours...)
Hide and Go Squeak Eggs
For Learning and Exploring
Pickle has an amazing set from John Lewis for her first birthday, which unfortunately isn’t available anymore, however I love these Disney Mickey Mouse Stacking Cups which are bright, colourful and of course you can’t go wrong with purchasing a little Disney.
Pickle loves books, whether she is making noises pretending to read them herself or having them read to her. Some of my favourite books have been birthday gifts or gifts for Christmas for the girls, especially personalised books with them including withing the story. As they grow and recognise their name it’s amazing to watch them enjoy the stories even more. Pickle’s favourite book at the moment is Funky Pigeon’s personalised Name Discovers a World of Colour book which is not only a great first birthday gift because it’s personalised but teaches children colours and even how mixing colours makes new colours!
Lift Flap Books
Pyjamas will always be a winner... especially as the majority of children will be moving into yet another size of clothing around their first birthday. Using events such as their birthday to gift them useful items such as this will not only ensure that the gifts for children you’re buying for is useful but also help out in terms of the money that parents spend on their children (and let's be honest, clothing is one of the biggest expenditures that parents face!)
Pickle was fortunate enough to have some wonderful birthday gifts for her first birthday, even though it was only just ten days before Christmas. Not only did she receive some useful gifts, she also found herself with plenty of fun birthday gifts too! I hope that this post will give you some great birthday gift ideas for that special first birthday; whether you are looking for your own little one or someone else's child.
