My friend’s baby is turning 1 next week. I am trying to find something for her, but I am clueless. I was thinking about mailing her a gift card to Toy-R-Us or Build a Bear. IDK about Build A Bear because she is too young to build it.
ETA: I am mailing the gift.

When my niece turned one, I actually went and made her the bear myself. She loved it but too bad her momma won’t let her play with it too often because she thinks that she will dirty it. But you can make a bear for her and that will still be a very thoughtful present.

I think pillow pets are awesome! Also, have you seen those blankets that have the animal heads & tails sewn to it? Those are adorable!

toys-r-us has toys for every age so you cant go wrong with that. I personally like to buy books for children even if they are too young to read, they can still have the books read to them and like turning pages to see the pictures

When my nephew turned 1, we bought him a few things. Some were toys and some were keepsakes.
The toys included a water table for outside (his birthday is in May) and a few little things.
Then we bought him one of these books…
As well as one of these… a story book with their name, address, friends names, etc… in the story.

@CaraMia10: Thanks! I think those pillow pets are so cute!
@bells: Thanks! Never too early to give a child a book!

Clothes. Kids can never have enough clothes. It’s simple, easy , and not a whole lot of thought has to go into it.

Have you asked what she likes/needs?
I feel like a lot of babies want to be like grown ups (My friend’s baby would always take their remote and try to watch tv and pretend it’s a phone) so I bought her a play remote control that she loves.
For another friend we bought lots of clothes (she’s a big girl who’s growing fast!) and books with hard pages about things that I know she loves (dogs and cats, and mickey mouse).

I love this company–the fill and spills especially are great for babies: http://www.melissanddoug.com And it’s all made in the US (so no worrying about lead paint an dall that) and the prices are reasonable.
You can just have them ship stuff directly to her.
