Wonderful ideas for keepsake 1st birthday gifts for boys and girls

The 1st birthday is a memorable one. It's the start of childhood as a baby grows towards childhood.

Giving a present that can double as a keepsake acknowledges the importance of this birthday. It also gives the family something that can be kept as a reminder of their child at this sweet age. A one year old grows so quickly. So it's wonderful if you can help the parents create a special keepsake of this time before it passes.

Choosing a keepsake gift can be tricky because of the importance of the sentiment. So here's a collection of keepsake 1st birthday ideas that make great gifts.

Handprints and Footprints

Something as simple as a child's hand or foot print can make a beautiful keepsake for parents. It captures their child during their first year in a way a photo cannot. 

A hand or foot print craft captures the tiny and sweet size of the hand or foot of a young child. This can be a very sentimental experience for a parent to look back on as their child grows. To see their child's sweet little hands or feet from when they were one. It brings back the wonderful memories from the first year. 

A Birthday Keepsake Journal

This journal isn't specific to a 1st birthday but it can be started at this time and added to as the child grows. It's well designed. Parents can include some special pictures and there are pockets for small keepsakes too. There's even some great question ideas to ask their child as they get older and projects that let kids add to the journal in their own way. 

So this is a 1st birthday gift that will become a big journal of memories covering many years of their child's life. A great choice for a birthday gift.

Keepsake Signature Frame

This frame is a wonderful way to remember the 1st birthday party. There's lots of space around the 3" by 3" photo of the child for family and friends to write lots of loving wishes and thoughts. 

It's good for boys and girls because it has a reversible pink or blue mat. It can also be displayed on a table top or a wall. 

A gift like this is a beautiful way to acknowledge the importance of the 1st birthday. To be able to remember the love that surrounded the child on this day and of the loved ones who shared this milestone together is a beautiful gift to give.
