First birthday gifts

Personalised 1st birthday gifts for boys and girls

Every birthday is special, but none are quite as special as the first. All those months of planning and excitement leading up to the birth are then followed by a whirlwind first year when new parents get used to sleepless nights and caring for something more precious than anything in the world. The job of picking a first birthday present is possibly one of the hardest, as it needs to combine longevity with sentimentality and result in something that will be treasured forever.

At Bundles of Joy, we stock a wide range of first birthday presents, but we like to go one step further which is why we are one of the UK’s favourite personalised first birthday gift stores.






Why personalised first birthday gifts?

We’ve all been there - you spend ages searching for the perfect present to congratulate a child on hitting the tender age of 1, only to find that three other people have bought the exact same thing. Thankfully, we have the answer, and it lies in personalised birthday gifts. Suitable for boys and girls and perfect first birthday presents from sisters, brother, parents, grandparents or friends, 90% of our stock can be personalised by the Bundles of Joy in-house team, thus creating unique keepsakes that will last for ever.

The benefits of a memorable first birthday present
If truth be told, few of us hold onto every birthday present we receive. Our first birthday is rather different, though, and there’s a good chance your parents still have those given to you when you turned 1. First birthdays don’t come around twice, which is why the perfect 1st birthday gift for girls and boys are one of the most important presents any of us buy. We want them to live long in the memory and hold a special place in the heart of the parents and child (once they’ve grown old enough to understand what this is all about!). At Bundles of Joy, we only stock memorable first birthday presents - nothing more, nothing less.

The joy of giving
There are few joys greater than giving, and first birthdays mark an incredibly special, seminal time in a child’s life. For anyone close to the family, it represents the perfect time to buy that first gift that will no doubt be followed by many more as the years roll on.

If your parents kept your first gifts and you treasure them to this day, you’ll know exactly how important it is to find the right present at this special time.

Why Bundles of Joy?
We have assembled a talented in-house team that uses a variety of methods to personalise 90% of our first birthday gifts. We all know how important that first birthday present is, which is why we have spent years undergoing self tuition and building up experience that enables us to make every gift unique and long-lasting.

First birthday gift ideas
If you’ve been tasked with getting a unique, personalised first birthday gift, you’ve come to the right place.

Every birthday is special, but a 1st birthday is extra fun and exciting and we offer a stylish, unusual range of gifts for both boys and girls to celebrate this special occasion.

Stuck for inspiration? How about a personalised money box, soft toy, rocker, classic wooden toy, towel set (the parents will appreciate that one), dressing gown or ride-on toy? There’s something for everyone in the Bundles of Joy store.

How we create personalised 1st birthday presents
Finding a unique or unusual first birthday present isn’t easy, and the last thing any of us want is to turn up to the party with something that has already been opened earlier that day. At Bundles of Joy, we can help avoid that unfortunate mishap with our personalisation service. We believe in self-tuition, which is the learning method our in-house team of designers has undertaken, enabling them to personalise 90% of the first birthday gifts we have in stock.

All you have to do is pick a present and tell us how you’d like it personalising. We have hi-tech machines that can add names to just about anything (money boxes, door plaques, swimming bags, backpacks, you name it) and, occasionally, call on the services of our fancy Robo Craft Machine that can create name transfers in a variety of colours and fonts.

Free delivery if you spend over £50
Need your first birthday gift fast? No problem. Because we perform all personalisation work in-house, we can turn around orders super-quick to ensure they arrive in time for the big day. We offer a free gift wrapping service and, if you spend over £50, we’ll deliver your present completely free of charge.

Customer Comments

Good afternoon Bundles of Joy

Wow, what can I say?

I ordered a Christening Mug yesterday at approx 13:30 I was kept informed of the progress of the order via email in the afternoon.

This morning I received an email stating that it would be delivered today by courier between 11:14 and 12:14 it turned up at about 11:18.

What fantastic service, I will definitely be recommending your company, and using it again.

Many thanks for such a prompt and professional service.
