  • If you want to spend money its going be materialistic lol. We like to give memories like a trip to the zoo or science museum. Figure out something age appropriate and take lots of pictures!

  • get a memory chest (toy box) that you can later put everything your baby loved growing up and give it to him once your baby starts a family of his own :)

  • What about something new for his room....a toddler bed, a fun car rug, a new bin organizer for his toys, or something similar.
    Think about the things he will need in the next year....a booster seat for the table, a potty chair, fun dishes sets, a nice coat and snow pants, new clothes, etc.

  • I made my son a mommy and me book at www.snapfish.com and his dad gave him a daddy and me book. Its very cute and he looks at it constantly. We wrote little stories of memories through out the year in it. We are going to make this a yearly tradition.
    www.personalizationmall.com has very cool gifts. I also made my son a family throw blanket it has my husband, him me, his grandparents on both sides and his cousins on it. Its very special and he'll keep it forever. Its become his security blanket.

  • I would say go practical. He is going to get a ton of toys and videos and such so try buying some clothes for the upcoming season, P.J.'s or shoes. I would do at least one 'fun' thing from mom and dad though. Something he will be excited about. Saving bonds were good to. AS is a college fund. Never to early to start those things.

  • Hmm...

    Maybe a membership to the zoo or something else fun? Then you can go all year.

    Anything practical.

    Money in college savings or just start him a savings account.
