Children are the greatest gifts in life! Whether you are a parent, grandparent, or proud aunt or uncle, you understand the value and joy that children add to life. Is someone getting ready to celebrate turning 1? That is a big moment both for the child and for his or her parents. It’s time to celebrate! Are you not sure what the right gift is to get for a 1 year old? Don’t worry! Our gift guide is filled with gifts that are all perfect (and most importantly, safe) for a 1 year old. One years old can be a bit of a tricky age, especially when it comes to shopping for a gift (okay, maybe it is a little easier gift shopping than raising the one year old), but we still understand the stress of trying to find the perfect gift! Rest easy, we have got you covered. Check out our list and see what you find.

10 Things to Consider When Buying Gifts for a One Year Old

On the hunt for the perfect gift for the one year old in your life? Be sure to keep these 10 things in mind while you shop!

1. Safety first

This is the most important thing to keep in mind when buying a gift for a one year old. Make sure it is safe! Not only do you want to be sure it is appropriate for a one year old, but make sure it doesn’t have small parts that could easily become a choking hazard. The last thing you’d want to do is put the birthday boy or girl in any danger. If in doubt, consult with their parents first!

2. Look local

Depending where the family lives, there is likely a local playplace that any one year old would love to go to and explore! If the parents already have a ton of toys and are short on space, this is a great gift idea that both parents and child will absolutely love. As always, make sure the place is designed for children as young as one.

3. Clothes are tricky

While clothing is always a gift option, keep in mind that one year olds are growing very quickly. What fits them today may not fit them just a few weeks from now! Most parents would agree that spending a lot of money on clothes at this age is not practical, but you could always get a cute fun outfit for the birthday girl or boy if there is a special occasion coming up, such as Easter or Christmas. Most children only wear those outfits once anyways, so that makes for a great gift idea!

4. Encourage learning

One year olds are learning and growing and developing very quickly, even if it does not appear that way. Help them to grow and learn by getting them a toy that specifically focuses on development. These toys are just as fun, but they are designed to help teach children crucial skills. His or her parents will certainly appreciate this gift as well!

5. Give the gift of bonding

Parents are always looking for opportunities to bond with their children. Consider giving the one year old a set of books as a present- they cannot read yet, but their parents can read to them! This gives parents a great opportunity to spend time with the child and really bond. And best of all, kids love being read to! This is a gift that is perfect for the entire family.

6. You can’t go wrong with cute and fluffy

When in doubt, a cute fluffy stuffed animal always makes for an excellent gift. Who can resist a soft, cuddly animal?? No one! Perfect to hold onto during long car rides, or to play with at home, stuffed animals are always a great gift idea for children of any age.

7. Get on your feet

One year olds are at that age where they want to start walking. Depending on the child they may already be walking, or they could be just about to walk. Either way, they are sure to still be unsteady on their feet. A great gift idea is a walker that they can hold onto and push. This helps encourage them to walk but also keeps them safe and prevents them from stumbling and falling over!

8. Shy away from technology

The technology debate with children is messy. Ultimately, it is up to the one year old’s parents how much they use technology such as an iPhone or iPad. Rather than get involved, stay away from technology and get them something totally neutral.

9. Check before getting a toy with noise

One year olds love toys that make noise. However, for the sanity of his or her parents, it is best to check with them first to see if they want a toy with noise at the house. Many parents today work remotely, so they may not want loud toys that could interrupt conference calls during work hours. If you do go with a noise making toy, keep in mind the parents are likely to remember that when you go to have kids!

10. Bath time is the best time of day

Finally, consider getting some fun bath toys as a gift. One year olds love bath time! For the child, bath time isn’t about getting clean but is about having fun. Get some safe water toys or a fun bubble bath or bath salts to make bath time even more fun. As always, make sure if you get any sort of soap or bath salt product that it is safe for one year olds. If the child has sensitive skin, we recommend staying away from bath products. Instead, go with fun bath toys. Rubber ducky for the win!

We Know Appropriate Gifts for 1 Year Olds!

Let’s face it: The one year old you are shopping for may not remember their first birthday. However, that doesn’t mean the day is any less special and that the little one is any less deserving of a special gift! Whether his or her parents are throwing them a major party or it will be a simple evening at home, there is nothing quite as special as a baby turning 1. You only have your first birthday once! Even if you only remember based on the pictures that are taken, it is still a special moment that will be remembered by all friends and family involved.

Bringing a child into the world is the most exciting and important thing you can do, and for that reason alone, many parents like to have a big celebration for their child’s first birthday. If you don’t have kids it may not make sense, but any parents will totally understand the excitement and desire to throw a big party!

Pick a Gift Both Adults and the Kid Will Love

Is there anything better than seeing a child’s face light up as they see a new toy? We don’t think so! The first birthday is the first of many chances to show this child how much you love them, and that love is something that will stick with them forever!

Getting a gift for a one year old won’t just make the one year old happy, it will also make his or her parents happy as well. Parenting is tough!
