The Best Gifts for One Year Olds

Toys for tots who’ve reached their first big milestone.

Deena Campbell · 21 days ago


What do you give a kid who’s new to the world? Of course, you could get a tricked-out toy sports car or a customized kitchen set (which is more money than your monthly groceries, by the way) and there’s always gift cards. But we know you don’t want to go out like that, so we crafted a few adorable favorites that are easy to pull off. From the chic-est teether to the coziest lovey, here are 10 of the best gifts for one year olds, all under $50.

CAMP Long Sleeve Babysuit

One year olds need onesies like they need fingers — they are great to have (especially for sucking and nibbling on), but too many can be a tad excessive. But there’s something about this super soft onesie that screams you can never have enough. (Hmm, could it be the word CAMP?) We love that it’s super soft and you can throw it in the washing machine many times and it never fades. 

Hape DJ Mix & Spin Studio

Did someone say mini concert? Give the gift of music to any one year old looking to flex their DJ muscles. Kiddos will love the 18-key piano to develop hand-eye coordination (translation: they will obsess over banging on it) and the fun tempo slider makes changing the speed a breeze.

Darlyng & Co. Cute Animal Teething Mitten: Oliver the Puppy

One year olds crave multi-sensory play, and this teething mitten checks all the boxes. It’s loaded with textures, patterns, and (soft) sounds to keep 12 month olds engaged. Attach it to a stroller, car seat, or carrier — or really anywhere you need the kid to stay stationary. And when it’s soaking wet from slobber, spot clean it with a damp cloth and gentle detergent. 

Calisson Sophie The Giraffe So'Pure Teether

Does your finger need a break from the constant gnawing from your baby’s aching gums? We hear you. Give them this 100% natural rubber teether that offers different textured surfaces for baby to soothe their sore gums. 

Canticos All the Colors De Colores Book

Sure you can give the gift of Spanish lessons, but wouldn’t it be cooler (and cheaper) to bring their favorite colors to life in a bilingual book that focuses on English and Spanish? Inspired by the classic Mexican song “De Colores,” littles will lose themselves in the world of colors. Whatever you do, be sure to check out the lift-the-flap features filled with fun surprises.

GUND Spunky Huggybuddy

The best time to introduce a stuffed animal or cuddly friend is at 12 months of age. Prior to that, blankets and loveys can be a bit of a safety issue. Kids will love the Huggybuddy for the warm cuddles, and you’ll love the embroidered eye and nose detailing to ensure safety. Consider it a lifelong friendship in the making.

Melissa & Doug Deluxe Pounding Bench Toddler Toy

When you’re having a bad day, hitting things can pump up your feel-good endorphins, making you feel less frustrated and irritable. But that’s not exactly the best advice for a one year old. That said, this wooden pounding bench offers kids a hands-on, imaginative game of peekaboo while learning colors...and releasing that pent-up toddler energy.

Welcome to the Party

While this book has an emphasis on welcoming a newborn to the family, one can argue that the real party of life begins at the one-year mark. It’s a big milestone and definitely a cause for celebration. And as author Gabrielle Union puts it, “our shindig keeps going and will never, ever stop."

1 2 3 with the Notorious B.I.G.

Biggie fans stand up! Help the little one in your life learn numbers while celebrating the biggest rap and R & B artists (like Jay-Z, Kanye, Nicki Minaj, Kelis, and the Notorious B.I.G.) from then and now. The end result? Excessive amounts of baby swagger.

Hape Baby Drum

Real question: If a kid doesn’t have a drum set, are they really experiencing an awesome childhood? Help children develop the joy of rhythm with this colorful wooded drum. When beaten, colored circles emit a sound and trigger a colored light to shine. When rolled, the drum showcases lights and music. Either way, it’s a good time for everyone but mom and dad. 

Manhattan Toy Safari Zebra

This is no ordinary Zebra! He’s got ears made for pulling, gears made for twirling, and clackety sounds and spring-dings built to blow toddler minds.

Fat Brain Dimpl Duo

Push the bubbles and feel the satisfaction...ASMR joys have no age limit. Your baby-turned-toddler gets to experiment with colors, shapes, and textures with this sweet and simple sensory contraption.

Fat Brain SpinAgain

The SpinAgain is the stuff that those “oddly satisfying” Insta-videos are made of but with a hundred percent less soap shaving. Your baby will love these giant, brilliantly colored sprockets as they figure out how to make them spin — again and again and again!

Waddles the Waddle Duck

Waddles is one of the most popular toys ever to quack out of the box at a CAMP store! He quacks, he flaps, and he’s always party-ready with his festive red bow tie.
