10 First Birthday Gift Ideas
Looking for more mom content? Check out my other mom posts.
I can’t believe that my daughter will be one in two months. I remember bringing her home from the hospital and she was a little potato that didn’t do anything but eat and sleep. Now she wants to be super self-sufficient and doesn’t want mommy to help her with anything. For her first birthday, we decided that we wouldn’t be doing anything big, but I still wanted to get her a couple of gifts to open on her big day. I wanted the gifts to be useful, but fun and something that she could continue to use for a while. And I wanted to share them with all the parents or friends that are also in the same place as my family. Here are 10 first birthday gift ideas!I hope that you’re able to find something to gift the little one in your life.
1 / Wooden Musical Instruments
$29.99 , Amazon
Now that I’m a mother I totally understand not wanting any toys that make noice….but hear me out! How much fun would it be to have musical time with your little one? If you are giving this as a gift to someone else I would definitely ask for permission from the parents first.
2 / Playdate Friends
How cute are those dolls? They have different six different playdate dolls that you can choose from. It is machine washable which is so important since I know that they will drag this doll everywhere.
3 / Play Hair Styling & Grooming Kit
We love to explain what we’re doing as we’re doing it to our daughter. And with this styling set, she can participate with us. This can also be used as while teaching everyday tasks. I’m sure that she will try to use these on us as well.
4 / Baby Balance Bike
How cute is this tiny bike? It is lightweight and can be easily lifted and pushed around the house. It also has no sharp parts and the silent wheels makes it perfect for use indoors.
5 / Art Easel
I was definitely an arts and crafts kid. So I was excited to introduce my daughter to arts and crafts as well. We tried the ziplock bag with paint inside, but she didn’t seem interested in that at the time. We have high hopes for this multifunctional easel. It can also be turned into a table!
6 / Beeswax Crayons
Beeswax is a safe and durable alternative to traditional crayons. They are super thick so you don’t have to worry about them breaking during the first use.
7 / Baby Safe Finger Paint
Sticking with the arts and crafts theme, here are some baby safe finger paint. These finger paints are made from organic vegetable making it safe for young toddlers/babies to use.
8 / Play Cleaning Set
This is for all the little ones that love to help clean or play with the broom and mop at home. Its the perfect size and has its own little rack to hang them on.
9 / My 1st Wagon
How cute is this 1st wagon? Perfect to pull the baby in or for the baby to pull the free teddy bear that is included when you purchase the wagon!
10 / Wooden Number Puzzle
Numbers, Shapes, and developing fine motor skills….What more could you ask for?
I hope that you’re able to find either a gift for a loved one or your little one in this gift guide. What are some of your first birthday gift ideas? What gifts have you give before?
