Gifts for a One Year Old

Someone special is turning the big ONE and you want to make a splash with a gift that won't get lost in the shuffle. Perhaps Mom and Dad are just getting started in a small apartment, so that rules out big plastic toys, no matter how appealing the commercials make them seem to babies.

So, you may ask yourself, what the heck is a meaningful, fun, stimulating gift for a one year old ? A gift of books for babies from The Lollipop Book Club.

The advantages of reading to children from an early age are indisputable. Language development starts from the time a child is born. When a child reaches one year, most parents really start to see the early signs of articulation.  Reading daily to a child is a crucial activity during this time of a child's life.

Here are some good tips for selecting the perfect gift for a one year old from The Lollipop Book Club:

  • Send a book for every holiday throughout the year.  We offer a wide selection of the best baby books for Christmas, Hanukkah, Halloween, Easter and Valentine's Day.
  • Send a birthday baby book for the month of the child's birthday.  Some cute titles include Happy Birthday, Baby by Dr. Seuss and Happy Birthday, Little Pookie by Sandra Boynton.
  • Make sure to include a book for babies that encourages interaction.  Book gifts for one year olds that are touch-and-feel or lift-the-flap always get the most attention from baby.
Next time you get that birthday party invitation in the mail, try out The Lollipop Book Club. Every package includes the book you select, a lollipop (real or "washcloth") and a bookplate, making every book a keepsake for years to come.

Sweet Reading! Karen
