Jo, who runs Maman Bebe baby clothing store in Exeter, told Student Parents about buying gifts for babies:

“When the child is really young, they are often more interested in the wrapping paper than the actual present. I threw a huge first birthday for my son, with lots of guests who bought all sorts of gifts and he spent the whole time playing with a wine cooler! You might feel guilty that you can’t spend much on your child, or that the gift you bought isn’t as good as the gift someone else bought, but this shouldn’t worry you. Parents spend on their children throughout the year, and often end up buying them presents at other times. At such a young age, children can feel overwhelmed with too many toys, so there is no need to bombard them on their birthday. In fact, the birthdays are often for your benefit. It doesn’t matter if  you don’t host a birthday at all, or if you just have your parents and a couple friends round for tea, that can often be more special for you than a big bash anyway.”
