    Our really good friend's baby girl is turning 1 years old the day before we all leave for our wedding trip. Any ideas for a special gift for a 1st birthday?

    Thanks for your input!

      not sure this works for you, but I thought it was special - my sister bought her niece a necklace with a pearl on it and note to the parents that for each birthday and special occasion a new pearl would be added...so by the time she's older, she'll have a beautiful pearl necklace

        waw neen that is such a neat idea for a present...a bit like getting someone a charm bracelet and buying them a charm for each birthday...brilliant!

        h2b has a godchild, and for their first birthday, he opened her a bank account, and got her a token from Spaceform - contemporary glass gifts. - I love their tokens, and since giving the godchild one, they have gave us many in return for birthdays, and at xmas time there!

        Hope that helps...a bit!

          That is a great gift. I was given pearls by my Godmother when I was a kid, and now I'll be wearing the pearl necklace on my wedding.

          Then only downfall is it takes a lot of pearls to fill it up. So if she 1 pearl a year, it will be a pretty small necklace, even by the time she's 30.
