Having to consider age appropriateness, personal tastes and what will be useful to parents can make buying gifts for a baby a bit overwhelming which is why we’ve created The Children's Shop Gift Edit’s. Below are our top picks for a 1 year old:

1. Teeth can start to make their first appearance around 6 months of age so why not give a fun little teether like our Matchstick Monkey to soothe any aching gums.


2. This Mori blocki set is perfect to help them develop their fine motor skills, plus when they look as good as this they’ll look fab on display in a nursery as well! 


3. With the sun shining it’s the perfect time for some outdoor sensory play with this incredible whale sprinkler from Konges Sløjd. It’s sure to keep little ones of all ages entertained for hours!


4. What about adding a new book to their bedtime story collection? Little People, BIG DREAMS have created a series of books that explore the lives of outstanding people like Nelson Mandela, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Bruce Lee. They’re the perfect pre-sleep dose of inspiration for the whole family.


5. If you fancy going down the clothes route a onesie or sleepsuit is guaranteed to be useful at every age throughout the year. We love this gorgeous Konges Sløjd Rabbit onesie, we’re just gutted they don’t make it in adult size as well! 



6. The most perfect party outfit brought to you by Bob & Blossom and Mimi & Lula in the shape of this heavenly vintage pink tutubreton striped number t-shirt and pair of butterfly wings.


7. You can never go wrong with a The Children's Shop gift card, giving parents the opportunity to pick what’s most useful to them in their own time.


Whether purchasing online or in-store we can make sure everything is beautifully gift wrapped for you and the birthday boy or girl!
