The Top 10 Gifts for 1st Birthdays

a gift guide from Kicks & Giggles

Buying a gift for little ones can be extremely difficult. We hope to ease that hardship with a list of some of the most popular gifts for first birthdays. From books to phones we have it all.

Growth Chart

Kids grow faster than weeds! One minute they are rolling around and the next they’re walking and running. A growth chart can be a fun gift for young children to measure their development. 

Bath Toys

Make bath time enjoyable by giving your little one something to keep them entertained. These rubber toys are so much fun!

Activity Cube

A child’s early years are the foundation for future development, providing a strong base for lifelong learning abilities, including cognitive and social development. 

Activity cubes can help develop a basic sense of shape and color introducing your little one to education. Our Oombee BPA-free silicone cube also works great for teething. On average babies start developing teeth anywhere from three-six months, but teething can continue until age three!

My First Phone

Kids follow by example; they love watching you and everything you do. That includes when you are on the phone (don’t be surprised when they start trying to grab your phone to play with)! This toy phone will be perfect to them as they learn their communication skills.


Stuffed Animals

The first stuffed animals date back to the late 1800s and they haven’t dropped in popularity since. Stuffed animals provide comfort and help kids manage emotions and build confidence. Check out these adorable ultra-soft plush animals.


Dining Sets

Say goodbye to metal dishes and hello rubber! Rubber dishes help protect your little one’s sensitive mouth and your dining table. These utensils, cups, plates, and bowls are easy to clean and take care of making mealtime “Ez-Pz.” 



As your little one starts taking their first steps, encourage them – walkers are a great way to support first steps and getting back on your feet again after falling or being a little unsteady. They offer just a little more support and comfort. Soon enough, your kid is going to be running around the house with full confidence! 


You can never go wrong with a book! Much like the activity cube, books are a great way to introduce education at an early age. 

The popular series Baby University introduces more than just the English language. Baby University sparks interest in STEM-related topics! In addition to black holes to cells, these books breach the surface of complicated topics in an interestingly fun way. 


Building Blocks

Our Spoolz building blocks are a non-traditional alternative with “endless stackabilites!” Brightly colored, the blocks are soft yet grippable and can entertain hours of imagination. 



Socks might seem like a bland gift, but sometimes they’re the best gift a parent could ask for. Between kicking them off in stores, rolling around in the dirt, and losing them all over the house, kids need socks like they need diapers! Check out all of our assorted sock options here
