Blake's 1st Birthday Gifts

Nine days before Christmas is going to be a very special day. 
A special day because Blake will be turning one! 
It's pretty scary as this year has just flew by and it only feels like yesterday since
I held him in my arms for the first time. 

Because Blake's birthday is so close to Christmas I have had to be pretty organised
so all his presents for both his birthday and Christmas have all been brought. 

I've not found it too hard for him to know what to buy him as I had a rough idea of the things
I wanted him to have plus I have a list on Amazon so that other family members can get ideas on what to get for him as well. 

The In The Night Garden Activity Table was the last item that we purchased for him as it was 
something I really wanted him to have since he loves In The Night Garden (especially Iggle Piggle).
But at £59.99 I felt that it was far too much to spend on a toy however Amazon have it as of writing this post down to £32.84. 

The ball pit  is from argos and I also got the balls for the pit from their as well I like that this toy can be easily 
stored in his toy box as it folds down small and the balls also have a little case to put them in. 

All of the clothing is from HandM's Kids range from the 4 months to 2 years boys section. 
I have a little thing for Monochrome at the moment and just love these pieces. 
This is the first lot of clothing that he owns from there and I am so impressed with prices and quality of the items I have received. 

2 pack long sleeve tops
Black and white outfit (think no longer sold) 

Laugh and Learn Piggy Bank
We actually got Blake's second hand but it's a great condition. 
I love that this piggy helps with counting and learning colors but is 
also great for fine motor skills and hand eye co-ordination. 

Tomy Hide and Squeek Eggs
I like the look of these they look like a fun and simple toy
that I know Blake will love and have fun with as he loves anything that makes a noise. 

So that is as far as gifts go for Blake's birthday I still have some more things I need to do. 
I have his outfit sorted but want to find some cute shoes to go with it. 
I also have showed my mum a cake idea as she will be making his cake. 
I just need to sort out the little bits like decorations, balloons and wrapping paper.
If anyone knows where I can purchase Iggle Piggle or in the night garden wrapping paper 
that would be great I can't seem to find any. 

I hope this post has been useful as with Christmas also coming up I know a lot of you are going 
to need some ideas for your own child, family or even friends little ones. 

 I would love to know what you have purchased for a child's first birthday?
