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 Little L 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 ideas that I think make perfect gifts 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 sets from other members of the family and has her own boxful now too! There is so much choice available in the LEGO Duplo range, so it is the perfect 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
Little L has an amazing set from John Lewis, 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.
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 gift you buy 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!)
Little L was fortunate enough to have some wonderful gifts for her birthday, even though it was only just over a week until Christmas. Not only did she receive some useful ones, she also found herself with plenty of fun ones too! I hope that this post will give you some great ideas for that special first birthday gift; whether you are looking for your own little one or someone else's child.
