Gift Ideas For Baby's First Birthday - Finding a Perfect Toy For Baby's First Birthday


Visitors: 217

For most parents, the most memorable moments are when their first babies were born and when they reached the first birthday. Nothing can compare to these two occasions where many new feeling of joys and experiences were shared by both the newborns and parents.

The list of joyful moments are endless. . . the first time you heard your baby cried, the first time you heard he or she called you ‘mom', how your baby discovered and learnt new things every day, every cute expression he or she expressed, etc. It is little wonder why most parents consider that the first birthday of their babies is the perfect occasion to celebrate and cherish.

Of course, a perfect occasion must also be accompanied by a perfect gift. So, how do you find the perfect gift for your baby's first birthday that can be remembered and cherished for a lifetime?

Here are some ideas for you to find the perfect baby's first birthday gift for your own or friend's baby.

A twelve month old baby is entering into the toddler stage, babies love to explore and learn new things at this age. So, an educational gift to help develop their learning skills would be excellent. Some examples of educational baby gifts are: Baby Einstein toys, Mozart magic musical cubes, Building blocks, Activity centers, ABC Wall cards and puzzles.

A personalized, hand painted birthday plate is also an excellent gift for baby's first birthday. I have one which is colorful painted with my baby's name on it. I hung it on the wall of my baby's room. I reckon this is a great gift that we can treasure for many years to come.

Another variation of personalized gift I like is the ‘Sterling Baby Cup’. This is a traditional first birthday gift for baby where your baby's name can be engraved on the cup. In time this gift can become a family heirloom.

All babies at this age love to cuddle and huddle soft dolls and animals, these toys can make great first birthday gifts as well. Look for a unique, well-crafted doll or animal so that it stands out from everyone else.

Shopping gifts for the little one can be fun but do remember that babies at this age put love to explore things and will put everything in their mouths. So make sure that you don't buy toys that have small parts that may come off. Try your best to find something which is unique and can be treasured for many years.
