Erin has recently turned 6 months old and actually, since she was born I have been shopping for her birthday and Christmas presents. Now, I know you may think that is mad but with Christmas and her 1st birthday only a week apart, it’s a lot to do. So, this post is a cry for help really. Presents for a 1 year old? What is suitable, fun etc?!
I was lucky earlier on in the year with Sainsbury’s having Vtec Toot Toot products on sale so I got a couple of large items. Since then I have added to the collection which will pretty much make up most of Erin’s Christmas presents. She has the Chicken Coop, Tree House, Fire Station, Car Launcher and a couple of animals.
For Erin’s birthday we have so far gotten her a ball pool and obviously some balls. She’s also got a shape sorter and a rocking giraffe, a pull along turtle and some wooden puzzles. Erin’s birthday presents especially don’t seem like very much!
It seems that I’m pretty okay with buying ‘bigger’ kinds of presents. I do realise I’ve probably already gone overboard for someone who won’t have a clue about what is going on. However, I do still want to get some smaller, stocking fillers. I want to be able to make a big deal about Christmas and her birthday. We’re not having more children so why not!
As Christmas and her birthday are so close together my hope is that I can get some presents that will last quite a while and that I can maybe give her again later in the year when she’s that bit older.
I would love some help and recommendations for what would be suitable for a 1 year old. Maybe you have traditions for birthdays and Christmas, something you buy every year? I’d love to know.
