We’re back with the second part of our First Birthday posts by Jenny at The Cloth Diaper Revival. Jenny is a sahm to her little guy Noah, who has his first birthday coming up. She has already given us a great guide to planning a first birthday party. Since not all of us are necessarily planning a birthday party in the near future, here’s a great guide for us guests about what gifts we should get for the big day.
