Our third Gift Guide in our 2021 series is for babies turning one! A baby's first year flies by so quickly, with each month reaching major milestones: first smile, sitting up, crawling, eating three meals etc. I have especially loved collating these products as it will be my daughter's first birthday at the beginning of April, so these are all age appropriate gifts I would love to give her or for her to receive.
This magic bath book is a fab little present to give on their first birthday. As the book gets placed in water, the pages turn from black and white to beautiful colours! To repeat the excitement the next bath, simply leave out to try and it will return to black and white. We are currently stocking the 'Who's in the Ocean'(as seen above) and 'Who's in the Rainforest' books!
This gift is especially great if you are shipping it to a loved one as it is light and compact. However, if you are unable to forward it on, we offer a gift wrapping option shipped directly to their door.
This gorgeous little wooden elephant is particularly great for all those babies learning to walk. With the pull along string, the moving elephant encourages baby up and away! Similarly, they are a fun present for little ones with older siblings as they are able to interact with one another as the elephant gets pulled across the floor.
A practical, stylish gift that is extremely useful is the Done by Deer Long Sleeve Bib, coming in three colours: blue(as seen above), pink and ochre. These waterproof bibs are amazing for keeping baby clean during mealtime or craft hour! With elasticated sleeves and velcro crossing, they prevent sleeves getting dirty and allow for a quick removal.
Halcyon Nights are renowned for their bold designs and high quality, making them a unique gift for anyone. Another practical gift are their fitted cot sheets. They come in three designs: Beach Forest(top), Sweet Dreams(left) and World Map(right), presented in a matching drawstring bag. The sheet is 100% cotton, with an elasticated edge that runs all the way around meaning they can fit most standard cots(e.g Ikea). These cot sheets are guaranteed to brighten any nursery!
Lastly I have chosen the 'Charlie the Lion' wooden xylophone, a gift my parents have already bought for Olive's upcoming birthday. This beautifully designed instrument helps to develop hand-eye coordination, whilst teaching them about colours and sounds. It would make for a really lovely present for the birthday baby to play with.
