  1. OHMYGOSH THANK YOU! I have literally been racking my brain, shopping for a 1 year old (she’s 1 on the 22nd!!) is nearly impossible. Combine that with the fact that her birthday is three days before Christmas and I am so screwed! This is awesome!

    • Margaret – we had such a similar issue (and will every year) – P was born on January 22nd so we have a birthday right after Christmas. So glad this helps! I’ve also been thinking about asking families for gift cards on birthday and gifts for Christmas so we could get some new stuff for her mid-year.

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! My godson turns 1 in January so I too need Christmas and Birthday gift ideas. I have no idea what one year olds like so this was much needed!

  3. Great list! Sam loves his megablocks and bouncing turtle.
