Boy or Girl? I've made some placemats for my grandkids to make their place at the table special . . . hoping it would keep them from jumping down and running around at mealtime . . . it helped for a little while. They also love the lightweight quilts I made them (approx 40" x 60" ) that they use for naptime.
He or she might really like one or two of your little yo-yo turtles to play with!

If it's a girl, make her a princess dress. :)

If she has a favorite animal or toy, you could make a photo and make her a pillow with the photo - or tote bag for her toys.

I'd make her a little bow tucks purse with her favorite animation on it.

I think a little purse, too, maybe with kittens? Most little girls LOVE cats!
