My best friends beautiful little girl is turning one years old! What do you buy a one year old??? Do you buy something that is more of a keepsake gift, a toy, clothes? Here are a few of my favourite finds from the high street and online.
This little box of memories from mamas & papas has 9 drawers, each with their own labels such as ‘my first tooth’ and ‘my first shoes’. It’s a cute way to store those special baby keepsakes in one place.
Another keepsake idea is this great book called ‘Letters to you’. It is more a gift for the parent/guardian of the child as it’s a collection of special moments, memories and messages written to the child. There are 18 sections representing the 1st to the 18th year. I would have loved it if my parents kept a journal like this!
What little girl wouldn’t love this gorgeous sheep rocker by JoJo Maman Bebe
This playful Animal Alphabet print by Ketchup on Everything would look great on a nursery wall.
These Felt Fox baby Slippers are the CUTEST! Once baby grows out of them they would make great ornaments on a shelf in the nursery.
Illustrated Alphabet blocks are a great way to teach baby their first letters or words. This retro set from My Sweet Muffin not only looks beautiful but will probably stand the test of time as its made from wood.
Zara’s metallic leather baby ballerinas are soooo adorable!
A couple of years back we had to choose a gift for a baby boys 1st Birthday. We bought him a couple of animal hand puppets and it turned out to be a great choice. His parents told me they kept him entertained for hours, creating funny stories and voices for the puppets. Hamleys toy store have a great selection, this Hedgehog was my favourite!
Again, Zara is a great place if you want to buy a special outfit or accessories for Baby. This Princess Velour Romper suit has a beautifully Illustrated Princess on the front. It would make a great keepsake gift too.
Put your sunglasses on for this one! It’s pretty garish and let’s face it not very nice to look at but this First Steps Baby Walker by Vtech will not only keep the bambino entertained but help them to take their first steps!
With all this choice I still don’t know what to buy her! 🙂
