I have no idea what to buy dc2 for birthday. Dc1 has already filled the house with toys, and clothes, at 1 an experience is pretty pointless. grin any ideas? some new toy I haven't heard of but we can't live without or something nice to keep? Dc2 has had a tough time (2 open heart surgeries so far and more to come) so really want a great birthday, possibly as much for me as for dc.

Maybe something classic books, I got DD1 the peter rabbit set and will get dd2 something similar for hers.

You could get bath toys, they always get a bit grubby over time?
Just spend less and don't feel guilty, wrap up some old toys?

A helium balloon always goes down well?

I agree
Something to hammer
Little football
Toy food
Soft baby doll
Plastic animals
Plastic/ melamine plate and cup
Her own little doll's buggy

Oh, her own plates bowls is a great idea. Dc1 got a couple of sets for christening presents but dc2 didn't and it would be lovely to have some nice ones... .especially as she loves eating!

I didn't get dd anything for her first or second birthdays or Christmas. She didn't know / care. She couldn't have been less interested in presents family bought for her. I quote : dd do you want to open this present from nanny? No.

So personally I wouldn't bother!

I’m in a similar position and thinking things like PJs, craft supplies - what about some wall stickers for the bedroom? We got this for Xmas which has been great both for baby fiddling, standing and pre-schooler learning letters etc.
