But here are some amazing options for a first birthday gift! Something to help develop those fine and gross motor skills. Music and bath time fun. Next steps in feeding time. And books galore! first birthday ideasTOUCH & FEEL BOOKS

TouchThinkLearn series is incredible! Grab Opposites // Shapes // Animals // Numbers // This Touch and Feel ABC book by Petit Collage is a must! // I have yet to find a milestone book that I can keep up on, its so challneging for me!  But a letter? I can write a letter! This is so cute and I had to show it close-up so you can see just howwww cute. It comes with stickers and everything. // If you’re gonna teach colors do it with the Pantone pros! Comes with six board books and their epic graphic talents. // This unfolding counting book via Petit Collage is so darling and they gradually get bigger as you go along! // Paris via Shapes. We’ll never get over you, Paris.Letters to Baby


Training Cup from Skip Hop that is no spill, easy to use and of course transitions right to a regular cup. // We met the EZPZ team a few years ago at the ABC Expo and they had so much freaking energy and passion for this mat. So happy to see it doing so well and well-loved and reviewed. It doesn’t budge and its all one piece so they can’t throw it when they’re “all done.”


Pull and Go Monkey Submarine // Skip Hop’s Waterfall Rinser has a forehead flap to keep water out of their eyes. GENIUS! // Make it rain with this pretty cloud! // Another fountain option in a darling bee form.


Three melody makers that are perfect for those 1 year old hands to grip. // I love that this is a music activity center with a few options. No need to pull out the box o’ instruments!


This modern little shape sorting house is so cute! // Kid O kills it in the modern toy arena. Love this three size stacker. // These Alphabet blocks are some of the prettiest blocks Ive seen and I’ve seen my fair share! // Trains are a must for boys or girls and this circus set just happens to be the most darling. // A modern bunny stacker that has so many cute possibilities! // This fox stacker has such a refreshing color palette. If you’re over primary colors or need a more muted tone for your nursery, try this one! // Looping stacker set but again in that awesome color palette! // Cute woodland creature animals that wobble to help with that hand eye coordination!


I like that this Fox ride-on turns to give them a little bit more to work on then a standard straight line ride-on // This Vespa look alike ride-on kills me. // Pull toys are pretty much the cutest for new toddlers. Theres a million cute options but we love this doggy and this elephant. // We’re always digging Nutcase Helmets for boys of course but how amazing is this floral?! // A bike seat for all your adventures together and of course for that floral helmet! This one is top rated, light weight and grows as tall as you need it to!
