When we did my DSs 1st birthday it was during the summer but here are some ideas for the party favors.

we did DVDs, Tattoos, bubbles, Chalk, hair brushes/clips/bands, baseballs, soccer balls, footballs, sand pails, wee had children from 4 months - 13 about 30 kids.  the 11-13 y/o we got them $5 McD gift card with a baseball

I'd personally skip it. A 1 yr old can't really enjoy it. But if you wanna make it easy on yourself there are party sites that ship lots of theme based supplies right to you.
