books are great, maybe some toys for outside (like a sandbox or water table) ride on push toys - my son's fave thing was a pop up tent with tunnel...finger paints, clothes in the next size up

it depends on what kind of things she likes to do. My daughter liked to read alot at that point (and still does) so board books were really good she also got some play kitchen stuff which she really started to like at about 14 months. My daughters birthday is in September so between her birthday and christmas we wanted to get her toys that would last her until she was 2 because there wouldn't be another big gift giving time until the next year. She is now 18 months and loves to play pretend with things like play food and dolls and she even has a little tool kit that she likes.

Babies like to make noise so any musical instrument especially ones that can be shaked or hit. Building blocks are also good to teach hand eye coordination. Toys that can be pulled along to encourage your child to get up and walk. Board books that have different textures and toys that can be chewed are also good. Hope this helps!

We actually skipped toys and did books. The board books were a huge hit. Can finger themselves and something to help mom and dad bond with little one. Little people toys are usually a hit, but pricey. Blocks are great. and those huge legos. My 2 year old still obsessed with both. fun tableware - guess they have all kinds of trainer/toddler silverware stuff. makes it fun, but something useful. A stuffed lovable teddy always nice.
