My daughter loved "Water, water" by Eloise Greenfield, "Daisy's Favorite Things" by Jane Simmons, and the magazine "Babybug". Another old favorite, which we still read at four years, is called "Rabbit's Bedtime" by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace.<br><br>
Beyond books, at one my daughter's favorite activities included drumming (she has a small hand drum that she sits on and loves to sing along "boom-boom teck, doom-doom beck"); pouring water using cups and pitchers; painting, playdough, chasing bubbles, knocking down block towers, sweeping, dusting, washing dishes, folding laundry, walking through the wetlands and throwing dandelions into the water, throwing and kicking balls - we also have a huge playground ball that she loved to push around on the grass.<br><br>
Don't know if any of that will be helpful for gift ideas, but it was sure fun to reminisce. Ask again when she turns 2!

The most successful books for a one-year old are books that have simple realistic illustrations of things the child recognizes in her or her daily life. I find that Happy Baby Board Book series to be great for this. Here is the amazon link to a bunch of them:<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fsearch%2Fref%3Dnb_ss_gw%2F102-6981274-3468913%3Furl%3Dsearch-alias%253Daps%26field-keywords%3Dhappy%2Bbaby%2Bpriddy%26Go.x%3D13%26Go.y%3D14" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=...o.x=13&Go.y=14</a>

At that age, both my kids loved the <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2Fsearch-handle-url%2F103-6873768-3402219%3F_encoding%3DUTF8%26dym%3D0%26search-type%3Dss%26index%3Dstripbooks%253Arelevance-above%26field-keywords%3Dtouch%2520and%2520feel" target="_blank">Touch and Feel</a> books. We've got quite a few of these, and they're the favorites.<br><br>
My DD (almost 13 mos) also gets a big kick out of the <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2Fsearch-handle-url%2Fref%3Dbr_ss_hs%2F103-6873768-3402219%3Fplatform%3Dgurupa%26url%3Dindex%253Dstripbooks%253Arelevance-above%2526dispatch%253Dsearch%2526results-process%253Dbin%26field-keywords%3Dlook%2Bbaby" target="_blank">Look Baby</a> books. Not big on plot <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> but DD just loves all the faces. She turns the pages and says "hi" to each face. Very cute. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
We also have a few <a href="http://www.ubah.com" target="_blank">Usborne</a> books that my DD loved at that age, and now DD does. The ones we have are from the "That's Not My" line for babies/toddlers.
