2 Year Old Gift Ideas

Age 2 is a wonderful and inquisitive age.  Here are a few ideas of what to give 2 year old boys or gifts as gifts.

  • Doll and/or doll pram, this is an especially good gift if the child is expecting a new brother or sister.  Boys and girls both love dolls at this age.
  • Dress up's, you are never to young to start a dress up box.  Kids love dressing up in mums old clothes and shoes, hats and scarfs.  Fairy wings, pirate hats and animal costumes will be enjoyed by 2 year olds.
  • Swing to hang onto a tree outside
  • A personalized children's book is great for this age group, you can choose from a range of book themes and include the childs name within the book.  The child will really enjoy any book where he or she is the main character.
  • Lacing toys such as lacing cards, lacing shapes or animals.  This is great for kids fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.  These type of toys may have small parts that are a dangerous for 2 year olds, but with supervision a 2 year old will enjoy learning this new skill.
  • Sand pit and sand toys as all 2 year olds I know love playing in sand and learn so much from pouring, sifting, building and playing.
  • New set of sheets for a bed.  Around the age of 2 most children move from a cot to a bed, so new sheets or blankets would be a perfect gift for a 2 year old.
  • Small child size couch or bean bag.
  • Books are great for all ages. At age 2 children will start to enjoy longer books and ones that have detail in the illustrations.  Children at this stage enjoy books in series where they can recognize the same characters in different books.  They also enjoy rhyming books. Books that discuss concepts of size, number and color will also be appropriate for this age group.
  • 2 year olds love books with familiar people in them.  Why not make your own book with photos of members of the family, friends and family pets. Have one or two people in each photo. Add captions and names to the photos and them laminate them and bind the pages into a book. Trim the edges so that the pages are rounded. You will then have a personalized book as a gift for a 2 year old to enjoy.  This is particular good for children to become familiar with family spread around the country or globe.
