Buying gifts for 1 year olds can be harder than you think, which is why I always wanted to come up with a killer gift list for any cute little baby-turning toddler in your life! Trust me, I have had my share of cute little girl toys as well! It's totally cool, you guys.
Here are our top picks for cute gifts for 1 year olds. Any gifts with 'precious' stones will be appreciated, but make sure the diamonds and rubies are big enough for your cute little tot! This is a common mistake made by some and they end up giving smaller, cheap accessories. This is the absolute worst thing you can do, so take care when you buy anything with a lot of gems or anything with a lot of shine!
Toys are an essential for your little tot, so make sure they're colourful and fun. Pick out a few colourful board games and check out how much fun she can have with them. If you don't want to spend too much money, then buy some fun, yet affordable wooden toys. You can always jazz them up with stickers or even paints later on.
Another really cool gift idea that works well for toddlers is stuffed toys. The great thing about these toys is that they stay squeaky clean and they don't get dusty as fast as regular toys. There are so many options available, it can really be hard to pick out the best one. However, the key to picking a great stuffed toy is to know what your toddler likes. If you know her taste, then you can easily pick out the toy that will keep her happily occupied for hours! Stuffed toys are a classic and they always make a great gift.
A very popular gift idea nowadays is toys that make noise. This is a great idea for a child who loves sleepovers, and is into other kids' activities. Some of these noisy toys even have games built in, so you can spend hours trying to avoid getting woken up by the noises of the toys. This is a great gift that will keep your toddler busy for hours.
You might think it a little weird to go for a gift that has to be put together, but with most toddler presents, it doesn't have to be! A lot of parents get worried about whether their gifts will be opened correctly, and this is why you need to make sure that the present is packed carefully when it arrives at home. This makes it easier for you to put it into the tiniest places, like under the Christmas tree or in the car boot if you're giving it to your partner. Your child doesn't want to open her gifts at home either, so make sure you pack it as neatly as possible. You can always cover up the box to stop it looking ugly, but it's always a good idea to put a label on the box too.
Something that you can't buy on the high street are books for children, but instead you should look online. There are lots of great gifts for toddlers that you can find on the internet that are aimed at helping your child develop reading skills. This means that you can help them out from a young age, which is always great. As your child grows older though, you can start to teach them more difficult skills and guide them towards books which they'll enjoy reading.
There are a lot of different gifts for toddlers that you can buy, but remember that a great gift is one that will last for years! That is what makes new books a great idea for your child - they'll read them over again, and the memories will stay with them forever. This is also the same with stuffed animals and teddy bears, as they can last a long time too. Remember that toys are great for baby too, but avoid toys which have parts that could break off too easily or have sharp edges. The last thing you want is your baby to be breaking their toys!
