@cmbr:  Not a mom, sorry. But I would ask her mom what she needs. I always think necessities make much better gifts for under 1 year olds.

I think a walker would be a good idea, if she doesnt already have one.

As a kid, I always preferred toys – I hated getting clothes/necessities as gifts because they didn’t appeal to me and really, those are more gifts for parents.

However, your niece is a baby and probably won’t remember anything at this age.  Also, children that young don’t have a solid concept of gifts yet.  So in that case, it’d be nice to get her clothes/necessities as a nice gesture for her parents. 🙂

my daughter is now 6 1/2 months and love anything that makes a noise or has lights. Shape sorters are great. My daughter loves her stacking rings, her rattles, her vtech crawl ball thing which keeps her amuses for ages.

 

At this age they are starting to get to grips with distances so anything that encourages hand eye coordination is great.

As a mom of a baby, I would love to receive clothes in one size larger than her current size, or toys that are designed for babies just a little older than her current age. We always have plenty of clothes/toys for her right now, but that would save me from having to buy more for later.

@MsJ2theZ:  Sorry but I can’t stand Scout and Violet. Just my opinion, I don’t like to get toys that require batteries. I prefer classic toys that have lots of replay value and require more imagination, like blocks, balls, rattles, simple cars, etc.

 

@cmbr:  Does your neice have a favorite color? Try to get toys/clothes in that color scheme. For example my baby girl has been obsessed with anything orange ever since she was 5 months old.

I think some kind of toy she can grow with is a great idea.  Violet and Scout are fun!  My son really started playing with Scout around 7 months.  What about a crawl and play ball (around $10 on Amazon)? Ball poppers are also pretty fun and they usually have different stages for different ages.

Books are always a winner or a walking trolley with activities that LO could grow in to.

Those activity cubes with the beaded mazes, flippy pictures, cranks, knobs, and buttons. I think Imaginarium makes the one we purchased for our darling Noralynn. I also LOVE books. I am a huge reader though and plan to instill it in her. 

We generally have lots and lots of clothes for her. Some that she has never worn (She is almost two) but we never turn our noses at a gift that someone thought of and bought for her. Everything is appreciated.

I bought our nephew a personalized blanket from PETUNIAS on Etsy. It’s satin with a fluffy trim, but has his name, birthdate, weight, time he was born, etc. I figured it would be a nice blanky (touch), and a keepsake.

Books, books, books! I hated anyone who bought my child electronic (noisy!) toys like some recommended above. My daughter loved blocks (particuarly those Peek-a-Blocks), shape sorters, her music set (it was a plastic drum stuffed with maracas, xylophone, and some other things).
