Gift Ideas for a 1st Birthday Party

There are so many different things you can get a one-year-old for his birthday, where do you even start?

Teepee

This is one of the bigger gifts we got H for his first birthday. He can grow into it, plus I won’t mind it being in the middle of my living room.

I always start by asking the parent of the child what he might want or need. The last thing you want as a parent is to have a bunch of stuff taking up space that your little one will never use. Also ask if they have a registry list. I put together a quick one on Amazon.com so if people ask, there are all sorts of ideas they can pick from. I even included the link with the invite when it went out. It makes it easier for your guests, and for you.

Band in a Box

And because H loves music so much, we got him band in a box. The noise will probably give me a headache, but I know it will make him smile.

And finally, I love a themed gift or a personalized gift, so if you prefer to go that way, I don’t think you can ever go wrong. Etsy.com, Pottery Barn Kids, and Pinhole Press are just a few places I like to shop for such gifts. But whatever the gift is, it should speak to the receiver. If he likes music, get a band in a box, if she likes dolls, get a doll that looks like her and has an outfit that represents something she likes to do.

The possibilities are endless, but with just a little bit of thought and effort you can arrive with the perfect present.
