Grabbing gifts..be right back!
Travel back to your own childhood and give a retro toy.

Is there any better cause for celebration than that of a first birthday? Children’s birthday celebrations are always fun but there is just something special about watching a child try to blow out one little candle on a cake that makes our hearts swell. After the cake’s been eaten (or more likely smeared across the face) it’s time to move on to the presents! Speaking of which, you’ll probably be buying one to take to the party. Here are a couple of things to consider before you go shopping for that 1st birthday gift for the baby boy.

An additional birthday gift idea

As an added gift for mom and dad, consider taking pictures during the birthday party of their baby boy and placing the most memorable ones inside a multiple image picture frame that the parents can hang on the wall as a daily reminder of their baby boy’s 1st birthday celebration.


Modern guidelines suggest you celebrate the first anniversary with a clock. If you’re shopping for your spouse, choose one based on a specific interest or consider a new watch. And if you’re buying for a couple, look for a beautiful wall clock... Read More »
You can't just sidle up to a tween boy (ages 9 to 12) and say, "Hey, you're on the cusp of manhood." He will pretend to throw up. You need a gift that is funny, possibly a little gross, and definitely up-to-the-minute. Good luck, gift givers,... Read More »
