Present Ideas For A One Year Old

With Darcys first birthday rapidly coming around the corner I've started thinking about what I'm going to be getting her and planning her a little party/bbq.
I am super excited even though she probably won't have a clue what is going on. I expect she'll be more interested in the wrapping paper too!
I decided to put together a little gift guide on good presents for a one year old and tell you what I am thinking about getting Darcy.

Top Left To Right:
Darcy hasn't got any outdoor toys so as she is a June baby, it's the perfect time with it being summer to invest in some. Plus she loves climbing at the moment too so this will great for her. 
I've heard lots of good things about this book and I also love that it is a classic. Darcy not only loves her books at the moment, she loves peekaboo too so I definitely will be buying this.
Darcy has got the hang of crawling now so she'd love the tunnel on this and the tents are quite fun too. I can imagine we'd have a lot of fun with this in the garden having a picnic in it and such.
I've heard so much about these and will definitely get one for her birthday, I think these are great for children of this age to as they can grow in to them unlike other toys are only around for a few months. They do them in all kinds of colours too.
Middle Left To Right:
Just like the activity gym this is another fun present for the outdoors, I take Darcy to the park a lot as we live right near one and she absolutely loves the slide, haven't 100% decided on whether she will have this for her birthday as it might take the fun of going to the park, but would be a good idea for someone who doesn't have one near.
I really the happyland range and especially this bus, it allows children to use there imagination and I think I will get this for Darcy. It will be nice to watch her develop pretend play as I haven't seen this before.
This again like above is a lovely way for children to use there imagination. It's currently half price too, so will be getting this later. Even better! I really like the girlie side of this too, I kinda want a go too hehe.
I love any of the old school wooden toys, there is way too many plastic electronics out now days (I sound like an old women!) I especially love this cute pushchair and I can just imagine her pushing around her dolls. So cute.

Darcy hasn't yet got a noisy play book and this girl likes anything noisy, it looks bright and fun too so I might give this to someone who needs a gift idea for her.

Bottom Left to Right:

I love that this can not only be used a paddling pool but also something where you can take to the beach and sit in the shade. With the summer months coming we'd get some use out of this.
I don't know if this is something we would get, but I love this and when I was a child I would of loved soemthing like this. Especially the fact it's like a castle too! My imaginationw ould have been going wild. It's £35 too which I think is pretty reasonable!

This is a lovely idea because not only is it pretend play, it teaches babies manners from a young age, aswell as numbers too. I'm looking forward to my cups of tea!

I'm really glad I did this post because in a couple of weeks time when I am looking for gifts for Darcy I can look back here and get inspiration. I can't wait for her birthday. Will do another post soon on plans for the day ect.
What did you get your little ones for there first birthday?
Thanks for reading
