It seems like just yesterday that the whole world was waiting for the little kiddo dubbed the “Royal Baby” to be born. There were tons of questions: When would Kate go into labor? Would she welcome a boy or a girl? Would she and Prince William name their child something classic or surprise us all?
Even though a year has passed, people are just as in love with Baby George as ever. Parents only wish their little princes and princesses were among his playmates, and news outlets can’t stop snapping photos of the charismatic cutie.
While we’d eagerly drop everything to attend George’s actual birthday celebration, it doesn’t look like such an adventure is in the cards. Instead, we’ve rounded up a few items that would make suitable presents for the Royal One-Year-Old (or, if you’re feeling super spirited, for your own little prince or princess!). Click on the images below to shop.
The wheels on the (double decker) bus go round and round! Help accustom baby to
his George’s neighborhood with this cute stroller toy that looks just like the iconic London buses. ($13, Mamas & Papas)
So what if Baby was born with a silver spoon in his mouth? He’ll still get great use out of this aquatic-inspired Reed & Barton silverware set. It’s never to early to brush up on table manners, especially if dinner with the Queen is on the calendar! ($35, Amazon.com)
Even royals aren’t perfect! This bib will protect Baby’s clothing from spills while reminding him of his true…or desired…identity. (£4.99, Jo’s Baby Gifts)
Georgie is still an only child, so live-in playmates will have to come in the form of furry friends for now. Support Mum and Dad’s alma mater with this cute teddy. (£16, University of St. Andrews store)
Will George grow to love corgis like his great-grandmother? For now, he can dazzle her with this fun one-piece. ($30, Zazzle.com)
There’s no place like home. Jazz up your British-themed nursery with a picture of George’s abode (the prints come in both blue and pink). ($44, Etsy.com)
Even future rulers should save their pennies! This Jonathan Adler piggy bank is perfect for kings-to-be (there’s a queen design, too!). ($78, YoYo.com)
This Prince William night light comes in a classic pattern suitable for a little royal, plus it’s named after Dad! ($31, Wayfair.com)

There’s Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and even Grandparents’ Day (it’s September 7, if you were wondering!), but did you know there’s a special day (July 26) devoted to aunts and uncles, too? These individuals likely play a significant role your child’s life, and they certainly deserve some love. The best present of all? Knowing how much Baby cares for them. Shop these cute aunt- and uncle-themed products, then dress up your kiddo and snap a picture, if you can’t actually visit those important relatives. Click the images to shop.
For the Aunts…
Baby has a bestie! We bet your sis will be thrilled to take on the role! (Carter’s one-piece, $5, Sears)
An animal-loving aunt will get a kick out of this adorable bib. ($5, Babies R Us)
This tee is perfect for the sweetie who has multiple aunts in her life–no playing favorites here! ($10, The Children’s Place)
The message is plain and simple–it’s amour! ($5, Target)
For the Uncles…
Good looks really do run in the family. Our guess is everyone thinks Baby’s adorable, so his uncle should be prepared for lots of attention! ($5, Babies R Us)
This one-piece is graced with positive adjectives (hip, funny, and hot, to name a few) describing Baby’s uncle, who, apparently, is flawless! ($15, Bed, Bath and Beyond)
Babes who are past the bodysuit stage can sport this bold tee. ($12, Kohl’s)
Who else lets Baby stay up past her bedtime and watch all the Dora she wants? That guy. ($10, The Children’s Place)
Should you hire your sister-in-law to babysit? Here’s what you need to keep in mind.
