First Birthday Gift Ideas

First Birthday Gift Ideas

Happy Wednesday amazing readers!  Today I wanted to share my ideas of amazing gifts for first birthday’s.  🙂  Naila recently turned one and we celebrated with a family and friend brunch at Bread Winners Cafe and Bakery, a delicious brunch place.  We had so much fun and most importantly we celebrated my baby being here for a whole year already.  🙂  Thinking about how quickly time goes by is a little sad.  But seeing her become more and more independent every day makes me feel like an amazing mother.  This whole experience is just bittersweet.

The gifts that you should purchase for a 1-year-old. 🙂

  1. Wooden Blocks are great for developing problem-solving and perception skills.  These will also keep them entertained for a while. 
  2. Melissa & Doug Puzzle, this brand makes such amazing toys and puzzle’s for kids.  Here is another puzzle and here is Naila’s personal favorite.  Puzzle’s are great because they encourage hand-eye coordination and imaginative play.
  3. First 100 Words Board Book , Naila loves this book.  It contains 100 words along with 100 pictures.  🙂  Toddlers love pictures!
  4. Disposable Bibs are perfect for when going out to eat with a toddler, you can use them and dispose of them and they take up very little space in your diaper bag or purse.
  5. Disposable place mats these are perfect to use on any table if you don’t want a mess or if you don’t want your baby to eat of the table.  You can also use them and then dispose of them.
  6. A straw cup that is spill proof because anything that is spill proof with a toddler is a must.  Naila has this specific one it is amazing and it is definitely spill proof.
  7. Another great idea is a Shaded wagon, this would be very used by the parents and the toddler will definitely enjoy the ride.
  8. Or you can also get a Push car, these are fun as well.

This concludes my blog post for today!

Must have Monday

Must have Monday

Happy Monday lovely readers, starting today I will be posting and talking about one of my must haves every Monday.  🙂  As I discover new items that I love I would love to share and maybe you will decide to purchase the item and love it as much as I do.

Today’s Monday must have is the Fat Brain Toys Tobbles Neo.

Here is the lovely Naila enjoying her Tobbles.

I purchased this toy when Naila was only a couple of months old and I recently opened it.  The reason as to why I decided to purchase it is because it had great reviews, I personally only shop for anything after I have done enough research and when an item has great reviews.

This toy is for children 6 months and older.  This is a must have because it is perfect for your child’s sensory exploration, motor skills, coordination and much more.  Naila loves the fun colors, the grippable texture, and each sphere is weighted some spheres heavier than others which is convenient for stacking.  This particular toy seems very durable and easy to clean as well.

If you are looking for a toy for your baby, as a baby shower gift, birthday gift.  Definitely purchase this one with the link above Naila’s picture.
