Birthday/ Christmas Tradition Gift Ideas

I'm looking for ideas for a gift tradiition I could start for my niece who is also my goddaughter. She and her twin brother will be turning 1 in December, and I'd like to get her a small special "godmother" gift that I can build off every year. I've seen suggestions for charm bracelets and other jewlery, but I'd like to steer clear of that. Preferably I'd like to do something relatively practical too- no dolls or figurines. 

Thanks in advance for everyone's help!

How practical are you thinking? I really like the charm bracelet idea since it's something that can be a special heirloom. Theme gifts each year are cute too. Like, a different board game each year that's age appropriate and the two of you could play together. Or a puzzle (same idea). Are you looking for a theme gift idea or something that you actually would build off of, similar to a charm bracelet?
