1st Birthday Gift Ideas

Last week Aneurin turned one and we were showered with lovely gifts from family and friends.  We also splurged on our little man and bought him lots of things we thought he would love.  I was rather bad at keeping things under wraps until his ACTUAL birthday because I am a bad at keeping secrets and surprises. And it seems rather odd to keep things from a baby who doesn't understand what a birthday is when he'd enjoy playing with them RIGHT NOW.

I did a bit of googling at the time to find ideas for first birthday gifts and didn't find much so if you are in the market for a first Birthday gift these were all well received by our little man.
Happy 1st Birthday

By far his most played with presents have been his new trike and his latches board.  We got the Smart Trike for £32 from Amazon but it seems to have gone up in price now.  I did see this offer for a reclining Smart Trike on Playpennies though which I would have gone for.  The latches board I have been admiring for some time and although when it arrived it says 3+ Nye absolutley loves it. It's beautifully made and next I have been admiring all the cook wear from Melissa and Doug ready for next years celebrations.

So there's some ideas for you, if you click on the board above it will bring up a more detailed list of all the things included.


  1. Have you come across personalised cakes yet? I saw a great selection of 1st birthday cakes at baker days (linked above), you can upload a photo. Maybe not so great for baby, but at least the rest of the family can enjoy!
