A memorable baby birthday
You've been invited to the baby's first birthday and haven't the foggiest idea what to take
for the baby? Not to worry. We've created a list of unique and useful gifts that will be
appreciated by the parents. Read on.
During a survey conducted over a two
year span and covering 114 baby first
birthday parties, you might be amazed to
know we found that roughly 50% of the
invitees bought baby hampers containing
the same three or four assorted items,
another 30% bought diaper and nappy
sets, 19% bought soft toys and only 1%
bought some unique personalised item
for the baby or its parents.
Consequently, the baby's parents ended up with loads of baby powder, soaps, diapers,
feeding bottles and baby
suits suitable for one year
olds. With so much of each
type of baby use products,
wasting most of it (using a
dumping it because the child
had quickly outgrown the
need for the item. The long
and short of the story is that
there is a lot of wastage.
Cary instead something that
is unique, is useful and
would be highly appreciated. Even though the party is for the one year old, you do not have
to necessarily carry something for the baby – you could buy a gift for the parents instead.
Monogrammed bath towels or bathrobes for instance. If the baby is named “Cinderella”,
you could monogram “Cinderella's dad” and “Cinderella's mom” on the bath robes.
If you decide to gift the parents rather than the one-year old child, then sky is the limit.
There's no shortage of ideas and items you could gift. But ideally, it should be something
connected with the baby – think practical deodorants and air-fresheners included.
If you're thinking for gifting the one year old birthday girl or birthday boy something, think
mp3player loaded with nursery rhymes
and songs. The parent could alternately
read the child a story while giving it a
bath or select a nursery rhyme or song
from the waterproof mp3 player. A
child's waterproof camera is also a
wonderful gifting idea. These cameras
while highly functional have a toy like
appearance and colour – something the
photographed with this camera. The
camera has a sturdy build and can take a
few knocks while still delivering the perfect snapshot.
While on the topic of camera's you could also buy a nice picture frame or two. With a new
one year kid in the house, the parents tend to take lots of photos and a nice picture frame
or two would be quite handy and much appreciated as would a photo album.
