A first-year photo album

There’s nothing more personal than a sweet collection of photos from baby’s first year. Whether you decided to go with a top-notch printed book or print photos and slip them into an old-fashioned album, you and your little one will enjoy flipping through the pictures as they grow. Add an even more personal touch by including a letter to your little one on their first birthday.

A monogrammed birthday outfit

Though they’ll only wear it once, there’s something special about a birthday outfit with baby’s initials across the front. If you order your baby’s special outfit early enough you’ll likely be able to let them wear it for some special photos, the day of their party, and their actual birthday before you pack it away for safekeeping.

An engraved frame

If you’d like to keep a sweet photo or two of your little one on display, an engraved photo frame might be the perfect first birthday gift. Sure, your little one won't do much playing with a photo frame but babies and toddler do enjoy looking at pictures of the people they love and, if you add a fun toy to their gift bag they’ll be more than satisfied with this gift.

A personalized story

Even though most one-year-olds don't have the developmental ability to follow complex stories, they love cuddling up with the people they are closest too. Snag a personalized story and enjoy snuggling for story time now and as they grow. As your little one grows they’ll be amazed that the story they've loved listening to is all about them!
