    Books, bedroom decor that is a little less babyish, playroom furniture ie children's table and chairs set, anywhere chair from pbk, clothing, outdoor children's rocking chair - my parents got one for DS1 from Cracker Barrel and the boys love it. That's all I can think of at the moment.

    Savings bonds are a common 1st birthday gift in our families.

    Not that you can exactly suggest something so specific but I like to give a PBK monogram beach towel for a first birthday gift.
    How about cup/plate sets, kushies bibs, art smock? - things you might need anyway
