We are headed to my friend Haleigh’s son’s 1st birthday party today! For the first time buying a gift for a child’s birthday party wasn’t an overwhelming task. For years as friends had birthday parties for their kids I was constantly faced with, “What is the world do I buy a “X” year old boy/girl that he/she will absolutely love?!” I was clueless. Now that we have a 1 year old boy (and am around other 1 year old as well) I finally have a grasp on what boys, at least, love to play with at this age and hope this helps out anyone else who might need a tip or toe on what to get a little one..
Gift ideas for 1 year old boys:
- Fisher Price Little People playsets
- Trucks/cars that he can push around- big chunky ones that are easy for him to crawl or walk and push as opposed to little cars
- Board books
- Water table
- Little Tikes car
- Swim suits and personalized and/or matching beach towels (more for the parents – but my bestie got our little guy this for his 1st and I absolutely love it)
- If they are still learning to walk then anything they can stand and push to walk with like this.
