Best Baby Gifts for the First Year

Becoming a grandmother is truly one of the highlights of my life!     Daphne is our first grandchild and a baby girl is a novelty for Mark and I after raising three boys!  And, like most grandmothers, I do love to spoil our sweet granddaughter!  I can’t believe she is now 14 months old!   So, I thought I’d share some of the best baby gifts we purchased for her first year!   And, the items in this collection are things that both Daphne and her parents appreciated!

We’ve also purchased some handmade items from Etsy that I’ll share with you in another post.  But, for today, these are all items that you can find on Amazon, which makes it so easy to purchase.    The most expensive thing on the list is $135, but many are under $50!   My hope is that you’ll use this as a resource if you need a baby gift for a shower or if you’re looking for something for your own baby or a grandchild!   

These are some of the gifts I purchased for our first grandchild that are parent and baby approved! I feel confident in recommending them!

These are adorable, but my days of little ones are over. Grandchildren range from fourteen to my granddaughter who will be 25 this year. Maybe some great grandchildren some day. I hope, they are busy trying to get their lives started now.

My granddaughter was a preemie and had a good bit of irritability for the first several months. There were times when NOTHING would sooth and amuse her except for Flappy the elephant! A great gift for a little one.
