As I mentioned in my ‘What I learnt at 21’ post, one of my best friends had her daughter last year on my 21st birthday. This meant that obviously, she turned 1 a couple of weeks ago! Now I’m a sucker for buying anything for her, baby things are just adorable, but I wanted to get her something she needed or could use for a while. Because of this I thought I would do a little mid-week post with what I bought her, just in case anyone out there is looking for some inspiration!
One thing I knew I wanted to buy her was a book, but one that would help her and they could keep for a while. After doing a bit of research (mainly watching SacconeJoly vlogs) I decided to get the One Thousand Things book by … . This has one thousand things for children to learn in, so it includes numbers and colours etc. I thought this was a good present to buy as she is getting to the age where she is starting to learn things, so this will just help her with that!
When I asked my friend if Ellie needed anything, she said clothes and hair accessories as she has lovely long hair now! This made me very excited, as I have refrained from buying any clothes for her for a long while! Obviously as a little girl she is growing very quickly, so I didnt want to get her anything too expensive that she would wear once and thats it, so I popped into primark and picked her up 2 outfits. One is a typical girly pink, and the other is a little bit more grown up with white and dark blues. I bought these in the size 1 1/2 – 2 years as I figures she could possibly wear them for a little longer and not grow out of them quite as soon! For hair accessories I bought this set of 6 headbands which I got off amazon. They are super cute and colourful, and the bows aren’t so big that they will make her look silly!
I wrapped everything up in Peppa Pig wrapping paper which I got from The Card Factory and went to see her on the morning of her birthday. It was so cute to see her open the presents and get excited over everything!
