Sorry - I know this isn't a pregnancy question - but I am pregnant so I look to you lot to answer every query these days!

I'm going to a first birthday party this week and need a good gift. I want to spend under £20 (ideally well under!) - any suggestions? I don't know any other 1 year olds so not sure what they're into at this stage - did any of you receive great gifts for your babies at this stage?

Cheers!

best present by far was a cheapo umbrella fold stroller for her dollies. still going strong 7 years later, with dd3.

Best bet IMO is always a good book - there are loads of lists of recommendations on here somewhere but you can't go wrong with one of the Julia Donaldson ones (Gruffalo, Snail & The Whale, Room on The Broom, Monkey Puzzle) or if you want something more substantial (and for the longer term), get some Paddington/Roald Dahl/the Zoo-ology book.

Failing that, one year olds I know love sorting stuff so stacking cups or Tomy eggs. Also, the animal figures (Schleich?) they now stock in ELC are lovely and should be played with for a long time, my 1yo and my 4 yo both enjoy them.

Yeh Books are great too.... especially board books with pop up bits, mirrors etc.

great ones are the "Thats not my ......" books. Textured pages and lovely bright pics.
