Harry's 1st Birthday Present Ideas

Now that Christmas is over and done with I can now concentrate on Harry's birthday preparations. I didn't want to buy too many of his presents before Christmas as I wouldn't have anywhere to keep them so I decided to wait until after Christmas although I did buy a few before hand such as the piano, zebra ride on, wooden drum, racing car and Lucky Boy Sunday doll as I was planning on giving some of them at Christmas but then realised he had quite a lot already so put them away for his birthday instead.

I thought I would share some of his gift ideas and share some of my favourite toys for 1 year olds with you incase you were looking for 1st birthday gift ideas too. As you can see there's a monochrome theme as I'm looking to keep his toys black and white to match his room when I do up his big boy room and I am a huge fan of monochrome as some of you already know. I am planning on buying a few more of the items below and the others will be ideas for next Christmas such as the wishbone trike and I'm thinking of waiting until next year to buy the Brio stove as he will be older. 

I love the zebra ride on and only came across it last week after looking for a ride on for some time but could never find one that I liked. His other main presents are the white sit on racing car which I know he'll love and will last for years as well as the piano which I may regret buying once the kids get their hands on it! I'm building up Harrys wooden car collection and have bought him a couple more of these Kukkia wooden toy cars, although they're quite expensive at £18 each.

  1. Oh wow! Black and white/monochrome galore! Never seen so many black and white toys before haha! Great choices! Can't believe he is going to be 1 soon. x

  2. Love the ride on car and the piano! All amazing!! Love your monochrome look too :) Happy birthday Harry xx

  3. Love this and I'm obsessed with monochrome here too-my kitchen has monochrome tiles, and detailing. Happy Birthday to Harry. Oliver turns six this Sunday, time sure flies! I adore the wooden cars, my sons still have lots of those from their younger years and that drum! Aw! x
