Party Planning/Gift for baby's 1st birthday


I am Jyoti.
I wanted to know what is the best gift to give to my niece on her 1st birthday, which is on 14 march.
I want to give her something which would be of some help to her.
I would also love to give something fashionable.
Please suggest some theme for a surprise birthdaqy party which i want to throw for her.
Thank you in advance

Hello Jyoti

This is SO personal I doubt if strangers can be any help! Just my opinion.
And also Nationality, culture and other life stuff will come into play.

For me ... I'd give something of value that will have longlevity and is NOT fashionable. That will 'date' but something like a classic piece of jewellery will hold value and be wearable in 10, 15 or more years time.

So .... I'd go with gold or silver .... a locket, pendent, charm or similar.

As far as your party theme .... she's one, so anything will be a surprise! A theme? I'd go with something cultural .....that has meaning. But without knowing what that would be for you .....

Good luck

Stuck for ideas? I can help with ideas on theming, entertainment and anything creative. I specialise in the unusual and have created party experiences for small gatherings right up to large international corporations. I have a great original idea that is totally flexible and personalises the party in a way that touches people.


I have been involved with Corporate and Private Events for many years. I both organise and provide entertainment at a wide range from house parties, anniversaries, celebrations, fun days, conferences, seminars, workshops and street parties.

I gained a degree in Graphic Design and Communication and worked as a Creative Director and Design Consultant for over 20 years. My consultancy Gordon Ollis Design gained commissions from leading International Blue Chip companies and won awards for the work we produced. Since then I've worked in the event industry being involved with theming and entertainment at a wide variety of parties, events and celebrations
