The Best First Birthday Gifts That AREN’T Toys

With three kids, all of whom have a slew of friends, I’ve been buying up milestone birthday gifts like nobody’s business. It seems like there’s a birthday party (or ten) every weekend around these parts lately. I love coming up with creative and unique gift ideas for milestone birthdays. My favorite milestone birthday of them all is the first birthday.

My kids get enough toys for their birthdays, so I like to find non-toy gifts for them that they’ll actually love. Here are a few first birthday gifts I’ve purchased for my kids (and others!) that were truly loved and used to no end.
