  • Books. Those are always my favorite because my daughter loves to read, and you can never have too many kids books :)

  • Hands on toys, things she can learn from at her age level.. Or maybe her first baby, something she can love and cuddle with...

  • For my boys I loved the oversized crayons that way we could draw together. Also I loved the books because we could cuddle up next to each other and read.

  • Well I did try to say tactfully that she does have a savings account and that money is always a good gift - it is the right size, the right color lol! Yeah so far no takers - apparently everyone wants to get her a toy!

  • I told my family books. Children can never own enough books. By the time my DS was born I had already purchased over 250 different children's books. He got another 50 or so for his first birthday from family and friends.

  • Books are always good. My son is 17 months and loves his Leapfrog My Pal Scout (they have a purple "Violet" one for girls). It's a stuffed animal that you hook up to the computer and program his name, favorite songs, favorite foods, etc. and then it sings little songs, says hello to your child using his name, etc. It's really cute
