What do you gift to a 1 year old baby? It can be difficult to decide, as many gifts only hold a baby's attention for a few months, or even a few weeks. 1-year-old's are in the midst of a key developmental stage, and if you're giving them a gift, you have the chance to give them something memorable to help them grow.
We’ve rounded up some of the best gift ideas for babies to ease your search for the perfect present. You’ll be sure to find something on our list!
The Mini 3in1 Deluxe Plus: This gift is our number one for a reason! It grows with kids from ages 1-5, meaning they’ll have it and love it for years. It’s the best value present you will ever buy because your child will use it day after day, year after year. 3 rides for 5 ages all in one box: At age 1 start with the ride-on seat using one of two seat heights. Use the push bar to navigate from point a to point b. Designed with young children in mind, the Micro Mini 3in1 Deluxe Plus features soft edges, a stable upright design, and quiet, smooth-gliding, non-marking wheels that can be used indoors and out. The deck of the scooter is just one inch off the ground, allowing children of all ages to step on and off as they please. The two wheels in front help the scooter absorb bumps and help the child stay balanced. You’ve still got years of fun ahead!
A Photo Session: There are few gifts that a 1 year old will remember for years to come, and even fewer keepsakes that stand the test of time. It’s impossible these days for parents to have enough photos of their kids, so why not have them taken by a professional? Search for local photographers in your area and find one in your price range. Give the family the gift certificate in a frame they can use to hang the finished product!
