Great First Birthday Gift Ideas

Lil Community: Share Your First Birthday Present Ideas

Every birthday is sweet when it's your child's, but there's something extra special about celebrating baby's first year on the planet. Picking the perfect cake is breeze, but picking a keepsake gift can be stressful. Starbucks recently asked for support in our Q & A group, saying:

My baby girl's first birthday is coming up. What did you guys get your babies for this special occasion?

Share your suggestions for starbucks in comments! If you have question for other mamas, ask it in our Q & A group for a chance to be featured on LilSugar.

Thanks for the ideas, ladies. We are having a rather big get-together for her birthday and everyone keeps asking what to get her....We have now resolved to have our friends who don't want to spend too much pitch in for the new carseat.

I'm also not really in to keepsakes, besides photos. We have lots of albums :) I think one-year-old presents are the easiest, since they aren't asking for anything yet and are pretty much happy with anything new that you give them. Stacking toys are great, as are Little People toys (my son got the farm), bouncy balls, push toys and bikes, etc. Tents and trampolines are also alot of fun and will grow with your child.

I didn't do any keepsake type things for my daughters birthday - other then pictures and videos that I will eventually put together and frame to hang on the wall.As far as her gifts, I got her toys that would engage her then, but really come into play for the long run. I got her a rocking horse, a toy barn set, a zoo set, a large Mr. Potato set. ALL of those toys still get played with daily, and she's 2 1/2. Easy toys to imagine playing with many different ways.
