Best gifts for 1-year-olds Default Thumbnail Mobile
As a parent or caregiver to a growing toddler, you’d want every festival, holiday and milestone to be a special one for your baby. And, purchasing an adorable teddy or that perfect gift can make all the difference. A soft toy might become their new bestfriend or an illustrative book would teach them new words and concepts. To purchase the best present for your baby girl, it is important to know what she likes and gets excited by. At this fun and active age, 1-year-olds enjoy activities that include pushing, pulling, putting things together and pulling them apart. You might also have noticed your baby girl moving all her toys into a box, only to unload and start all over again. It's the age where the gift box can sometimes be more exciting than what is inside. Below, we have handpicked the best toys and gifts for 1-year-old girls that will engage, entertain and educate her.

Now your little girl can bring her fantasy world and adventures to life with her new adorable friends.

The rocking animals come with hidden interactive features such as crinkle sounds, bell and rattle to keep your little one entertained. Made with a solid wooden base and super soft faux fur fabric, your child will have fun exploring the various textures. These rockers would make for a perfect gift on Christmas, Easter or Eid.
