    First birthday is a tricky time when it comes to find a good gift. With so many options available these days, it makes our head spin. Here, we mostly prefer gifting Gift Card unless we know the child’s interest very well. But if I have to give a gift then Pop up books, sand table and musical toys always make a perfect options for 1year old.
