8 Great Gifts for 1 Year Olds

Even with kids of my own, I sometimes panic trying to work out what to buy other kids for birthdays that’s age-appropriate and they’ll like. So I developed a bit of a go-to list of presents I like to give my own friends and family - gifts that are that are unisex, under $50 and guaranteed winners. Many are also really practical, which is a win for parents 🙌🏻


Here’s that list!

1. Personalised Bento Lunch Boxes Stuck On You. Mini Bento $34.95, Large Bento $49.95. Customise with the child’s name on a range of gorgeous designs. This gift is really handy for the age & stage of exploring food.

2. Scuttlebug Bike now at Kmart Australia for only $20 (RRP $59.95). It’s such a great little bike for early balance and mobility but the again best thing is that it’s compact! The bike folds down to about the size of a skateboard, so you can throw it in your backpack when you go out/on holiday. Or throw it in the cupboard if you’ve got limited space at home 🙌🏻
