Amelia's 1st Birthday Gift Ideas

1. Teepee Wigwam
2. Anabel Rocking Horse
3. Mummy & Baby Bunny
4. Ikea Panang Chair
5. Pink Polka Dot Toy Box
6. Rocking Horse
7. Ugg Boots
8. Owl Cushion

With Amelia's first birthday drawing closer everyday I have been searching high and low for some gifts. I didn't really want to buy her toys as such as she has a ton already and other people are bound to buy toys too so I opted for more of a purpose or keepsake ideas. I have been looking for a play tent for Amelia for some time now but haven't really found one that I like or that is girly. So when I found this one I fell in love! Can you imagine Amelia playing with her friends when she's older and have little tea party's in the wigwam how adorable! I have also been looking at children's armchairs and haven't really come across any that I like, although this one from Ikea isn't too bad and you can buy customised covers on Etsy.

I have been thinking about getting Amelia a rocking horse but I just can't decide on which one! They're both just too adorable and I cant choose! Which one do you prefer?

What did/will you get your little one for their first birthday?

  1. It's all about the rocking horse! I still have mine from my first birthday, and I plan to give it to Bea on her first birthday.

  2. Oh the Wigwam and rocking horses are so cute!! We got Ava a Smart Trike and some clothes. I 100% recommend the Smart Trikes. They brilliant & she loves it. (We got her a black & white one as we didn't think it would be fair to get a pink one just incase she ever has a baby brother....)xx

  6. Love the teepee, so adorable! What fun!!! Both rocking horses are stinking cute. Mine is more generic, blah...but I loved it as a kid and am so glad my mom kept it.

  7. Awww, they are all great first birthday present ideas. My little boy had that ikea chair and a rocking horse for his first birthday so they are clearly great choices. I think it's nice to buy them something really classic that will last for their first birthday and a chair and rocking horse definitely fit the bill for me. In fact I feel I'll be buying another of those chairs when my little miss turns one in September, I'll have to get them some cute cushions to go on them to tell them apart. X

    1. I think we will go with the chair too and I bought the wigwam. May wait and buy her the rocking horse when she's a little older :D Ahhh yes cushions would be lovely! I've also seen custom covers for the chairs on Etsy :) xx

  8. Those are SUPER cute ideas! We got my daughter a tent for her 1st & she LOVES it! She also got some new textured balls to play with! I think it's so hard to find things when they are so little. With her 2nd birthday she got musical instruments & a huge ball for the yard, and Mickey & Minnie Mouse things (her newest obsession!) I'm hoping the 3rd birthday will be much easier to plan for!

    Found you through the Bloglovin' link up! New follower!

  10. How about a chalk board? (You can even make one yourself from chalkboard paint and frame it out to fit your decor.) You can use it now to write on to teach her things. Put it at a low level, then when she is a tad bit older she can draw and practice writing on it. Then as she grows you can move it higher, etc. and as a teen she can write down important dates or sayings that have meaning for her.

  18. The #6 rocking horse is my favorite. The tradition in my family is for the grandparents to buy a rocking chair on the child's first birthday. Then, instead of a big gift, we as parents, throw a huge party to celebrate!

    ReplyDelete
  19. omg they're all too cute! I would have such a hard time choosing

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh I love it all. My little girl got a rocking horse for her first birthday and she still absolutely adores it nearly a year on. I'm absolutely addicted to owls at the moment, so have bought a very similar cushion recently.

    And that tee pee is just beyond cute. As for the Uggs, I hope springtime is round the corner and Amelia can save them for winter ;)

    I hope your little lady has a very special first birthday. x

  24. Love the rocking horse! We got our daughter an anywhere chair from pottery barn. She's 4 now and still loves it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'd get that teepee - so cute! Little ones seem to like there own little hiding places like that. I suppose that's why we have 4 different tents of that sort in our own house haha.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Not sure which I like most... #1 or #2 - that rocker is ADORABLE!

  42. I'd get one of the two rocking horses.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love the Rocking Horse (no 2), my little boys both still have theirs from their first birthdays. We bought our little one a Little Tikes 3-in-1 Trike, he loves being outdoors so it was a great way of getting out and about and I can adapt it to his requirements as he gets older. Perfect for little ones to get lots of fresh air and burn off some energy.

  44. The floral rocking horse is beautiful! I would go with that! x

  45. Too cute! Especially the teenie tiny UGGs!

  48. That wigwam is so cute! My older daughter who's 4 has the Ikea chair and her 1 year old sister loves it, for some reason she just loves finding things to sit on. As we have so many toys aswell, for my youngests first birthday we bought her clothes so she had something new rather than hame-me-downs from her sister.

  49. My little one is only seven months old but I have been thinking about his present. Apart from a gift, I want to bake him a nicely decorated cake with fondant and cute colors. And his grandma wants to give him a rocking horse. Those on the list are so cute!

  50. The rocking horse is the cutest !

    ReplyDelete
  51. Definitely go for a rocking horse, it is something that can be treasured forever and passed down. I personally love the number 2, more expression to it. Uber cute!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I like the pink rocking horse, good idea, i still have mine from when i was a toddler :)

  53. My first grandchild just turned 6 months old & my daughter is already planning her first birthday party. My fav is the pink rocking horse.

    ReplyDelete
  55. These are so cute! The owl is too sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love that owl. Adorable! I would probably get books...because I love children's books so would love to to use a first birthday as an excuse to get more.

    ReplyDelete
  57. My 3 girls would absolutely love that teepee!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I got my niece one of those Disney Princess Castles for her first birthday :)

  59. The rocking horse - I loved mine all through childhood, even when I was far too old to sit on it!

    ReplyDelete
  60. What cute kid stuff a great site thanks

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh to have a little girl, says the mom of four boys! All your choices are fantastic. With the rocking horses I would pick the one that would seem to clean easier. (boy thinking). The teepee looks adorable but maybe not quite the right one for a one year old, something softer more collapse friendly. That one looks like it will take up a lot of room. But it is precious

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love them all xx
