How to Choose an Adorable Gift for a One Year Old Baby Girl

The First Milestone is All About Memories

It can be challenging to decipher a one-year-old baby girl’s tastes and give her gifts she will love, because honestly, in her little world she is still learning to grasp and understand her immediate surroundings. Choosing a gift for her would be easier on the basis of the relationship you share with her family, hence zero in on getting a personalised gift for her that her parents can use for her, or products which help them record a milestone. Most people like to trace the baby’s foot and hand prints or their first picture for creating a lifelong memory. Since it’s the baby’s first birthday, buying a memory keepsake would cement the new bond between the parents and the child.

Gifts That Can Help!

The moment a child is out of the comfort and security of the mother’s womb, she starts experiencing different emotions and sensations, not all of which may necessarily be pleasant. To that effect, choosing something that can help the child and the parents in forming a cocoon of comfort and security would be appropriate. Look for a gift that would be helpful for the parents in supporting her development like, a pacifier, a musical mobile or a soft toy. Child care is expensive, from clothes, to diapers and wipes, to appropriate baby food and toys. It really is quite remarkable how many things are needed to care for a tiny baby! But what you can do is anticipate, or ask, the next needs and provide things the parents can use.

Now or Later Gifts

A gift may not necessarily be something that’s useful for the infant presently, it could also help her in the future. Whether it is a baby clothing set, baby furniture or toys, you can look for things that are apt for a growing child and aren't restricted by her age of one. You’d pick a high chair for her with her name etched on it or a baby walker that can be used up to 4 years or so. She will learn to walk soon if she isn't already attempting it, so a walker, personalised cutlery and plates and slightly more advanced toys are some things you can bring to her birthday.

Avoid buying very expensive items

Unless the gift can last and serve the baby for a few years, skip the over priced items. Babies grow rapidly and outgrow not just clothes, footwear but also toys and books very quickly so you don't want to be spending a bomb on something that will be discarded in a few months. If your relationship with the parents is the kind where you are expected to give expensive gifts, give her items made of gold, cash, or invest in some long term baby furniture or products.
