Most kids have more toys than they know what to do with. I love to give books.

You could even have a small bookshelf delivered to their home after you leave to start their own library. You can order personalized bookshelves.

Another gift I like to give is a share of stock in an appropriate company.

I have used    http://www.oneshare.com/      and given Disney stock.

When my nephew was one he loved books!!! He would bring them to me all the time to read! 

He also likes Fisher Price Little People!

@julies1949: Oooh!  I like the stocks idea.  

We always give savings bonds.  To the kids it does not seem exciting at all but to the parents(and someday the kids) they will be thanking their stars!  They are available online now instead of at the banks.  A little bit of a hassle but worth it.  My daughter is 15 and we are thinking of college and just cashed in some savings bonds to add to her mutual fund.  I am grateful that she had them!

But make sure to get the right series.  One is for like 30 years and one is for shorter.

Books! Books books books books. There are a zillion awesome books out there for younguns. Touchy feely books, audio books, books with buttons that make sounds, pop up books.

Any child regardless of age can never have too many books.

I’m big on books. It’s so much fun to have special books and a good library. And while you can’t buy saving bonds, you could put money in an envelope and put it away until they turn 18 or something. Also, another vote for the Fisher Price people – they have some awesome options!

I always do diapers and wipes until about 2-3 years old.

@sienna76:  Books-board books are best at this age (books w/ the hard thick pages). Character cup with straw and plate. Little People toys.

Little people rock! My son is 16 months now and he is huge into them.  They can get quite spendy. So I have been either purchasing them at Second hand stores or ebay… And he loves his Duplo Legos besides the music table I posted above
