Birthday or holiday gift ideas for one year olds! This list was created by a mama of a one-year-old to show the top one year old gifts.


When Corbin’s first birthday rolled around, we had lots of requests for his wish-list.

Since then we have also been to a few other first birthday parties and wanted to get the birthday boy or girl something they would really love and enjoy.

That’s why I compiled this list of ideas for one year old gifts! To remind myself for the future and to help other mamas or family/friends who are a looking for a great gift for a one year old.

This list was written in hindsight so I can truly advise which toys he loves and which ones to leave off the list. I am a mama of a one year old so this list is tried and true! I’m only sharing products that Corbin really uses and enjoys.

Gifts like feeding supplies and clothes are great, but here I primarily focused on toys. Because what one year old doesn’t love toys?

Some of these toys are small and compact and great for traveling! So its like double dipping.

Others can also serve as dual purpose. The baby doll has been great for preparing for a sibling
