Unique 1st Birthday Presents

When you are celebrating a child’s first birthday, it is a really exciting time. Whilst they might not remember much of it, it is a milestone for parents and so tailoring the gifts more towards them is a lovely idea. Things that they will be able to cherish or things that will make their lives easier are great, so that is the direction we are going in today! So, we are here to introduce 3 unique 1st birthday gifts that will be useful for the parents or will help them to create memories as a family.

Bib With Sleeves

If the 1 year old you are buying for is notoriously messy, then getting a bib with sleeves for their birthday could be a game changer for the parents! This is a great all rounder that can be used for food and crafts and is suitable for babies over the age of 6 months and they can grow with the bib right through to their 3rd birthday. They can be wiped clean and are safe for machine washing, making the parents’ life much easier. There are plenty of years for you to buy gifts for the little one, so choosing something for the parents this time will be lovely!

Family Hand Casting Kit

For a really thoughtful gift that the family can cherish, a family hand casting kit is a great gift. You can get kits with easy to follow instructions, where the baby and their parents will put their hands into a bucket of silicone and wait for it to set. When they take their hands out, they will then fill the mould with plaster and leave that to dry completely. Then, they will have a really lovely memory to cherish for all of their child’s life! They might need to wait until the baby is very slightly older so they stay still for long enough, but they can do this in the year of the baby’s first birthday and keep it forever.

Reusable Snack Bags

Reusable snack bags are another practical gift that will make the parents’ life much easier, especially when you choose ones that can be drawn on! You can get snack bags that have a detachable doodle mat and a water pen, so when you are out and about, you always have something to keep them occupied that can also hold snacks. Plus, with the water pen, you don’t have to worry about there being any mess! This is also great to take on holiday if you know they have a trip coming up.

These snack bags that you can draw on can be wiped clean and used over and over!

Final Thoughts

These 1st birthday gifts are unique and offer something a bit different, so are great choices if you want to step away from the norm! No matter your budget, the main thing is that you are thoughtful and consider how the gift might be useful or thoughtful for the family.
