10 Unique First Birthday Gift Ideas For Girls

You must be thinking hard and long about the gift that you would want to give your petite daughter on her very first birthday. By her first birthday, your little princess will have developed a personality of her own. How about a truly special gift that accentuates her unique personality? We’ve compiled a list of the first birthday gifts for your darling angel.

1. First Year Photo Frame


A clockwise arrangement of 12 pictures, each belonging to a month in her journey thus far, is a lovely first birthday present for your little princess. Alternatively, a collage of her pictures in different moods, clothes, with family members, capturing candid moments and funny faces and so on is also a great idea to present on her first birthday. These photo ideas will serve as a beautiful memory of your baby’s milestone year for you, and will be a treasure trove of love for her!

2. Personalized Money Bank

The concept of a photo collage can be extrapolated onto that of a money bank. A cube-shaped box decorated with pictures of your little one on all sides can serve as a beautiful money bank and in fact your baby’s first money bank. You can imbibe the values of saving overspending and using resources wisely into your little daughter with this thoughtful gift.

Reading to children right from a young age introduces them to the value of knowledge and gaining information. This well-regarded habit makes the baby imaginative, literary-smart, and a good listener. You can make reading fun by adding illustrations and making your daughter the star or the main lead of the story!

4. A Musical Instrument

Some children have keen ears for music, right from a very tender age. If your baby loves and responds to music, hums the most popular music, and sometimes begins to groove to the tune of her favorite song, you can gift her a miniature version of any musical instrument such as a mini mouth organ or a xylophone, or a keyboard. Upon a little encouragement and by showing genuine interest in playing the instrument yourself, you can also teach the infant to play the instrument.

5. A Ballerina Musical Globe is an Amazing Birthday Gift

Ballerina Musical Globe

For little girls who love to dance, a ballerina musical globe is the best birthday gift. The ballerina takes a bow inside the glass dome filled with glitter! The soft and gentle music has a calming effect on the infant. The baby also becomes enchanted with the grace, poise, and elegance of the ballerina. Talk about bringing out the artistic side of your little one!

6. A Coffee / Milk Mug Engraved With Her Picture

Milk Mug

Your baby’s best picture can be engraved on her coffee or milk mug. Some babies love the taste of milk and a photo on the mug is like icing on the cake for them. On the other hand, some infants despise the thought of drinking milk before and after bedtime. A mug with her best picture serves as an encouragement to the baby to drink milk and invoke the goodness of calcium!

7. An LED Light Star Canvas Makes a Wonderful Birthday Gift

The canvas is embellished with sparkling LED lights. As the lullaby plays, the stars and letters begin to twinkle and music begins to play on the canvas. It helps the baby identify letters, numbers, shapes, and colors in no time, and also associates playtime and bedtime with music and sounds.

8. A Cozy Chair, An Excellent Birthday Gift

Once the baby starts sitting down and standing up on her own, she doesn’t really need your support on that front. However, until she gains balance, she needs a soft, secure, and comfortable place to sit and play with her toys. A nice and plush cozy chair is just what you should be looking for at such times.

9. Magnetic Set of Letter and Numbers

While the infant may not recognize letters and numbers, she can identify matching pairs of letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. An educational set of numbers, shapes, and letters with small un-detachable magnets stuck to them on their flip side can be gifted to the little one.

The first birthday is a huge developmental milestone. The years to come will present innumerable challenges from the perspective of your baby’s upbringing. It is during these years that all the grasping, learning, and imitating will happen. To aid the process of character building and personality development early on, gifts that signify growth – both mental and physical – are the best birthday gifts for little ones just turning one!
