A baby’s birthday is a magical day to celebrate the child getting one year older. Family and friends can rejoice together by throwing a get-together and spoil the little one with presents. A baby’s first birthday is a real milestone and one that will be remembered for years to come.
But what can you give a baby for their birthday? There are many different options available but your baby’s birthday will always be special to you so extra attention and thought should go into the present buying.
What you need to remember though is that they won’t recall the day when they grow up so don’t blow the budget or get into debt going overboard on presents. It doesn’t matter how much you spend as long as you give your little one love and care.
Here are top 5 gift ideas that will definitely put a smile on the girl/boy’s face.
· Musical toys
Musical toys are perfect for stimulating a baby’s senses and so are fun, educational gifts. It has been scientifically proven that music encourages development in babies, so a musical present is great for new-borns. It can comprise of anything from nursery rhyme CDs, music boxes, carousels, or instruments.
· Cutlery sets
A baby learns and grows through interacting with their hands, feet and mouth. So why not treat them to some fun and quirky cutlery sets such as food face plates?
· Soft toys
Teddy bears are one of the most traditional toys for babies but they are still ideal because they offer security and warmth at bedtime. Crochet toys are also fantastic because they are organic and soft.
New t-shirts or baby grows are always ideal because a baby is growing so fast that they will always need new clothing. Personalise them for an extra special birthday treat and theme the outfits with a style that the little one is currently a fan of such as Tom and Jerry, Mr Tickle, or Disney.
Stimulate your baby’s development with fun, educational toys like wooden activity blocks or alphabet activities. Many are bright and colourful and will keep your little one amused for hours on end. Baby walkers are brilliant to teach your child numbers and letters as well as encourage them to take their first steps.
