Gift Ideas For 1 Year Olds
Celebrating a child’s first birthday is so incredibly exciting! However, it can be a little bit overwhelming trying to decide on what the perfect gift idea for 1 year olds is. We think that this is especially true for people who do not spend much time around children themselves. But fear not, we have made a guide that will help you to find the perfect gift that is going to absolutely spoil the birthday baby!
What To Be Mindful Of When Finding Gift Ideas For 1 Year Olds
Since it is so monumental, buying gifts for a child’s first birthday is kind of like buying a gift for a mother’s first Christmas. When you are reaching for the perfect gift for a 1 year old there are a couple of things that you should be mindful of when looking into the different options. To make things a bit less complicated for you we are going to provide information on some of the important things you should keep an eye out for.
What Makes A Good Gift
Stimulation – Babies love it when they are stimulated. Finding a toy that will stimulate their mind means that they will love to play with it and will be learning and growing while they do.
Surprise - Babies also love to be surprised. No, we don’t mean a jack in the box or something that will scare them, but instead a toy where they can be learning new things from it or about it, surprising themselves with new information.
Keep Them Interested – If you can find a toy that has many moving pieces, or parts they can push, pull, hit, spin, or shake they will probably be entertained by this for hours.
Textures - Babies learn so much about their world by experiencing it directly. Giving them a toy with fun and exciting textures will allow them to experience the world in a new way.
Important Things To Remember
Batteries – Some toys will need batteries to work. Not all these batteries are appropriate for children and may cause serious harm. Please look into this before you purchase a gift requiring batteries.
Chemicals – Some toys will also have toxic or dangerous chemicals that may harm children. BPA, lead, and PVC are some of the most common chemicals and toxins that should be kept away from children. Please ensure your gift does not contain anything dangerous to kids.
Flammable - Some mass-produced baby clothes are made of materials that are flammable or unconformable for children. While a lot of these clothes may look incredibly cute, it is paramount that they are safe.
