Need some inspiration, want a good big present, we've got a £150 budget.

DD2 got a Cozy Coupe for her first birthday. She loves it particularly when DD1 pushes her around in it and we think that she will get quite a bit of use out of it. This is it but you could possibly find a better price

To be honest, (and this is just a personal view) I wouldn't be spending a full £150 on a 16 month old, I'd be saving it for when they're old enough to be more aware of Christmas.

When my DD was 15 months old she got a smallish baby doll and a pram for Christmas, and she played with it and played with it literally for years.

£150!! shock

Spend £50 in ELC then put the rest in a bank account for her. She won't appreciate anything more than a token present at this age but she will appreciate a chunk of money when she gets to 18 and wants her first car or her university admission fees...

We got DS (who was 21 months last xmas) this last year. He absolutely loves it and gets it all out most days. It can be almost infinitely added to as well which gives lots of good ideas for presents from Granny etc.

BTW - There is also an entirely pink version...

really big presents waste of money at this age IMO, all they do is take up space in the house and they grow out of them fast - I can;t even remember what we got dd and it was only a year ago

we did get her cousin, who was 14m, a sturdy wooden dolls' pram thus which has been a great favourite and stood up to a lot of use, not just as a pram but also a general carting-stuff-around truck

The other thing to do is get something for the garden - swing? climbing frame?

I was thinking a kitchen of some sort? Is that something that will be played with for a while? Thanks for the other ideas! She already has a bank account that we pay into monthly and on birthday and xmas other relatives have paid into it! She's going to be quite well off come her 21st!!

Kitchens are good.

Lots of DS's friends got them for 2nd birthdays and they are a great hit with both the girls and boys. The only reason we don't have one is cause we don't have the room. Would probably work well for a smaller child but you might have to wait a few months for her to properly get into imaginative play. Should last for years though.
