Did you catch my last post on making a DIY makeup kit as a gift for a one-year-old? Today I'm sharing another super-creative gift idea for a one-year-old that you can assemble yourself, and they'll play with over and over.
Update: Make sure to check out part 3 in the series here!
Ever since she was a few months old and first started picking things up, my daughter has loved playing with the contents of my purse. Wallet, keys, phone- she loves it all! So I decided to assemble a purse of her own for her first birthday.
I found a small purse at a thrift store (I did clean it, but if you're squeamish about germs you could purchase an inexpensive new bag.) I made sure it was small enough that Emma could easily carry it around. I also bought a wallet at the same thrift store. This one looks a lot like mine, so I knew she would love it!
Next, I added a pack of tissues, my old iPhone, and some keys on a keychain. The keys were new (I was attempting to avoid germs) but I did find that the newly cut keys had really sharp edges- so be careful if you decide to take that route.
Next, I found some things to put in the wallet.
