One Year Old Gift Haul

I’m back! I know I haven’t posted in awhile but this mummy has been extremely busy. I truly missed the blogosphere and the blogging community these past weeks, the good news is I’m back to regular blog-posts (fingers crossed).

As most of you know we celebrated my son’s first birthday last month. As parents we all get invited to at least one children’s birthday a year and buying a gift that is age appropriate and that the child’s parent will appreciate can be a little tricky. Here are some of the great gifts baby E received for his birthday and it can give you an idea of what to buy the next time you are invited to a baby’s first birthday. These are in no particular order we loved all the gifts baby E got and we thank everyone for their thoughtful gifts.


Cute outfits

I personally believe that you can never have enough cute outfits for your little one especially dressy ones for special events. It is best to buy size 2-3 if the baby is chunky or tall. The last thing you want is to buy clothes that are too small.

 Teething book

If you read my baby’s updates you would know that my son got his first tooth a few days shy of his first birthday. Teething toys are great for babies when they are teething. Buy such a gift if you are close to the family and know that their baby is a late teether like baby E.

 Bath toys

To keep bath time entertaining for the little ones and keep them occupied.

Scooby doo stuffed toy

Most babies like stuffed toys; baby E actually picked Scooby doo himself even though he hasn’t watched a single Scooby doo episode.

My 123 mini library

It is a collection of mini books that are light for babies to hold and carry. This gift is great way to introduce numbers to young babies.

Colours and Shapes book

This is a lovely book with different colours and shapes. Books are always a wonderful gift regardless of age.

Storybook rhymes

It is a singing book with some of our favourite children’s songs. It sings a different song every time you flip the page. It also has the option to mute it or reduce the volume, which is fantastic.

Fisher and Price 2 in 1 activity chime ball

This is one of E’s favourite toys now. It is an owl with three colourful balls inside that the baby can remove and play with. Baby E played with this so much that he actually misplaced one of the balls already.

Feeding high chair

We wanted to get baby E a feeding chair for the longest time and we are so grateful that he got one on his birthday that matches our home décor.

Mega blocks

Blocks are a fantastic gift because it helps with eye and hand coordination and it also encourages creative thinking.

 Happy Blocks Car

It has 6 large pieces, which makes it easy for one year olds to hold and play with .

Baby’s first bicycle

This was a gift from his grandfather, unfortunately baby E used about 2 times so far because we live in an apartment and there isn’t plenty of space.

A colourful baby comforter

Who doesn’t love comforters, right!

    Some great ideas here. My kids loved getting those little library sets when they were little – they enjoyed pulling them out of the box and putting them back in again. And MegaBlocks are great! We have a big stash of them and my 5yo will still play with them sometimes (and my 2yo loves them!) #TheListLinky

    Such a lovely little haul there! I always find it so hard to think of gifts for my 16 month old, especially since she has two older siblings and so the house is already FULL! Some great ideas there! #TheLinkyList

    Nice list of ideas! I was telling people to buy our two year old age one clothes recently so it’s not always one size fits all! My age one star present idea is the smart trike… our girls loved theirs for ages!

      My son’s bicycle is sort of a trike where we have to push him with it but as he grows it transforms into a bicycle. It’s a great gift no wonder your girls loved them.
      Thank you so much for hosting #coolmumclub I enjoyed reading the posts and being a part of it this week xx

    Oh yes it’s really difficult to pick the best gifts for children.
    And this post is really helpful for all of us❤
    Blocks,story books,bicycle like all of these are loved by children so it’s nice to give them a gift which they’ll use in daily routine.
