Aunts and uncles share a special connection with their nieces, so it's no wonder so much thought and consideration go into purchasing a first birthday gift for niece. From toys and books to more personalised items like blankets and jewellery, many gifts are appropriate and affordable for a niece's first birthday gift.

Personalised Blanket

Children love to carry their blankets with them and snuggle in them tight at night, so choose a soft blanket for your niece in a colour that matches her room. Have it personalised with her name or initials, birthday or a special message.


While buying bracelets for young children can be a bit tricky, finding a bracelet ideal for a toddler on the move is a good present for your niece's first birthday. Opt for silver or gold, and avoid bracelets with elastic and beads. Get an adjustable bracelet so that she'll have the piece of jewellery for years to come.


Pick a special book for your niece that you or her parents can read to her. Select a book that's interactive, colourful and educational. Toddlers love to carry their favourite books around with them and attempt to read on their own. Books are great in helping to develop young minds.


It's important for parents to have photos of their children's most precious moments. Start a scrapbook, and pass it along to your brother or sister to maintain. Include pictures of your niece from birth, her birth announcement, pictures from the baby shower and the baby shower invitation.


If your niece has her ears pierced by her first birthday, gift her with a pair of small earrings. Choose a simple stud in silver or gold, or find earrings designed in shapes like a star, moon, sun or heart.

Piggy Bank

It's never too early to start saving. Gift your niece with a bank on her first birthday. You can add the first deposit to her bank and create a tradition where you add to every birthday. Get the bank personalised with her name.


Colourful blocks are a great developmental gift for a one year old. Whether wooden or plastic, blocks will provide your niece with hours of fun.


If you'd like to contribute to your niece's wardrobe for the season, opt for purchasing an outfit or two as a gift for her first birthday. Select a dress and shoes she may be able to wear on the day of her party. Find a hair accessory to match the outfit you choose.
