With Prince George’s first birthday fast approaching, I’ve been thinking about presents for babas, and in particular, first birthday presents.

The first birthday is of course a bit of a mile stone but the baby can’t possibly remember who gave what on the day. I think it’s more for the parents, but having said that I love a first birthday and I love finding perfect little presents to give.

Whether it’s big or small, I’ve tried to cobble together some of my top picks. A few pieces need pre-ordering as they can be personalised and something like the car needs a bit more work. I found this one online and fell in love but vintage toy cars and ride-ons are easy to find with a little looking online.

One of my favourite presents given to my son was an Oeuf NYC Animal Hat with matching booties. This link takes you to the European site but there are shops in London that stock them. I find Conran tends to have a good selection but they do sell out fast. If you find yourself in the States, it’s a good place to look.
