I can’t believe that Emmett has already enjoyed his first birthday! Other than the month of March, it seems like yesterday that we were heading down to Portland to meet him. As we approached Emmett’s first birthday, I started thinking about a first birthday gift.
In theory, he doesn’t really need anything and I contemplated just putting some money into his savings account. However, I also really wanted him to have that item that was his “first birthday gift”. I started looking for gifts that would be fun for a variety of ages so that it could be a toy that he would enjoy for many years.
As I looked, I found some pretty awesome toys. A few of these have been added to his playroom through generous friends and family, and others currently sit on his Amazon list for potential future gift ideas.
If you are also shopping for a gift that is ideal for a first birthday (or even for birthdays through preschool), I’ve compiled a few ideas below, hopefully they are helpful for finding that perfect gift!
