We've blogged before about 1st birthdays, and another one sneaked up on us recently in the form of Sylwia's little boy Kubus. It doesn't seem like long ago Sylwia was heading off on Maternity leave, and then we were welcoming her back in the summer. Where does the time go eh?
They had a lovely birthday party for him at home, complete with a Mickey Mouse birthday cake. Here is the birthday boy below, looking very pleased with himself. They didn't manage to eat all the cake so us BGers got the benefit of the leftovers - delicious. I know my little boy Rowan would have been impressed with this cake as his favourite teddy is Mickey Mouse!
Sylwia says he got spoilt rotten with lots of presents and all their family and friends came to his party to celebrate. They are lucky to have a lot of family here with them, after originally living in Poland. Kubus was born here however, and will be fluent in both languages - clever boy like his parents!
It made me think of family who can't be with their loved ones for such special occasions, and that is when BasketsGalore is really handy. We can bring you together by taking care of gifts for you, without the high postage charges and the stress of trying to arrange to ship something. Our birthday gift baskets for children start from ages 1 and up, so you have no excuse really! Typical 1st birthday gifts include clothing, a soft teddy/dolly, books, jigsaws and other age appropriate items to help them celebrate.
