Gifts for a 1-Year-Old Girl

Anna ScanlonJuly 9, 2010


When that special little girl in your life turns 1 year old, you'll want to make it extra special by giving her a great 1-year old baby gift. Instead of focusing on gifts she won't be able to use until she is much older, give her a gift she--and her parents--will be able to use right away.


Clothing for a little girl is an excellent and always appreciated gift for any parent. Since children outgrow clothing so quickly, it is constantly being replenished, making it a gift that's always appropriate. Before hopping online to order clothes or rushing to your local baby store, it is a good idea to ask the parents what size their daughter is and what type of clothing they'd prefer you to purchase for her. It's no good buying something she can't use, so choose wisely.

Rag Dolls

Rag dolls are perfect companions to any little girl. These old-fashioned, yet time-honored favorites, can be purchased at a variety of stores, or can be made yourself. The little girl in your life will relish cuddling up to her very own rag doll every night as she drifts off to sleep. Before purchasing the rag doll, you can ask her parents if there is anything she has taken a liking to, such as a favorite story or cartoon. You can buy a doll for her in that vein, or you can branch out and buy something different.


A 1-year-old girl is still learning all the ins and outs of proper eating and feeding herself, meaning a lot of food is probably still landing on her clothes. For some fun, have her try on a unique baby's mood bib to display her current disposition. Bibs are an excellent gift for a 1-year-old, as they can be used right away to keep the messy birthday cake at bay. RedEnvelope offers a collection of six bibs you can purchase as a gift basket. Each bib offers an applique of a character in addition to a mood printed on it. This way, parents can help identify toddler moods, help her learn new words and help her identify her own feelings.
