I highly recommend Melissa and Doug baby toys (look on Amazon, they will tell you which ones appropriate for his age. Also Baby Einstein while you’re on there. If clothing, check with parents on his size- the sizes on the outfit are usually outgrown before that age (ie a lot of 12 month old babies are getting into 18 month clothes). If in doubt, buy something small and get a BabiesRUs gift certificate 🙂

I always start a tradition of buying books. There is no better gift that you can give a child than encouraging a love of reading. They all get way too many toys and clothes.

I buy a small  bookshelf for their own starter library.

As a mum of a young child I’d recommend asking if there is anything in particular that they need/want.

If you’d prefer not to do that then Melissa and Doug toys that have longevity are perfect or things that allow open ended activities.

julies1949 :  Love this. I always buy books for babies and kids birthdays. 

If not a book then maybe something like a experince  could enjoy as a family. Like day passes to a zoo or something along those lines. Depending on what your looking to spend of course.

TheNewMrsSmith054 :  because toys rarely are kept longer than a year, by most people I know, I always try to get a ride on toy, if there is room for it. 

My nephew is about to be a year old, he is the youngest of 4 boys, and I plan to get him this. 


Clothes and practical items like diapers are usually appreciated, as babies don’t typically care what they are getting anyway. And then I would add a small toy or books.

I also love getting books for my son, and appreciate it when other people get him books as well. 

As far as toys go, my kiddo loves anything Little People related.
