I have quite a few 1st bday parties coming up, for boys and girls and I need some gift ideas. I have limited funds, but want to get something the kids will like. Of course every baby is different but there are some general favorites.... Thanks!

If you don't want to get a toy . . . because trust me, everyone will get them a toy, then I would go with the more practical option of clothing. Usually when a child turns one, they have outgrown the clothes the parents received for baby gifts and filling up their closet may be expensive!

Our daughter just had her first birthday. One of her favorite gifts is a set of mega blocks.

I figure that 1st birthdays are more about the parents than about the child - a worthy celebration of "We Made It!" through the first year of the hardest, yet most worthwhile, endeavor we'll ever undertake.

All parents need encouragement - Mum's most of all.

So, I suggest that you take the opportunity of the 1st Birthday to provide some parental encouragement: Flowers, Chocolates, a fine wine, vouchers for babysitting, cleaning -- or for a dinner at a good restaurant. Something appropriate for those particular parents.

My son was a huge fan of blocks. He got a set of cardboard blocks which he loves. It took a few months for him to get into them but he loves them now.

Cardboard Blocks

They make smaller sets so you don't have to spend a ton on them.

A developmental activity table is always a solid bet. The Leapfrog Learn and Groove activity center was a big hit with our son and a great thing for him to unwrap on his birthday.
