For Addie’s first birthday, we’re getting her a 12 month pass to the local tot gym.  The same place also just started weekly music classes I would LOVE to enroll in, but unfortunately, they’re during the week while I’m working.  🙁  Maybe something like that?  Personally, I really like “experience” type gifts, since we already have a billion clothes/toys/books/etc…

Well i usually do diaper cakes for baby showers… but since she is turning one, you can do something similar to a diaper cake with towels, decorate with stuff she can play with or use… the idea is that everything on it can be used. ITs fun to make too!

@oracle:  We live 2 hours from the Sacramento zoo, and Addie’s been twice already.  🙂  I think that’s a fantastic gift!  Plus, zoos often have a lot of special and holiday events they can use the pass for; I wish we were closer to the Sac zoo, or we’d probably go like once a month!

We just bought a one year old a savings bond, plus a really cute hoodie. I really didn’t like how the baby clothes were obviously so “boy” or so “girl” but I guess the dad gives into that a lot. You can tell he dressed her if she’s head to toe pink

Hm, maybe a “Mommy, Daddy, and Me” arts and crafts book? It can be something as simple as a blank canvas book for her parents to do arts/crafts type things with?? Maybe a set of finger paints/crayons would go nicely with it.  I always thought it’d be cool to memorilize a kids “creative” spirit as they grow into their own little person.

This might be a bit advanced for a 1 year old though…..
