Two Year Old Christmas Gift List
Okay, so my son isn't quite two yet.. you caught me! But he will be in only a few months and of course I like to think ahead!! Where do you stand on your Christmas shopping so far? I've been shopping like crazy this week for Carter's Christmas gifts and I'm about half way finished! I don't want to be too last minute getting everything together again this year.
I can't explain to you how much I LOVE shopping on Amazon. I have always had the best experience with them. Great customer service, speed lightning shipping, and did I mention the unbelievably cheap prices?! If you want to make your shopping and searching a lot easier.. End it here. Just click on the link and add each one of these items to your cart. I promise they will be a happy tod on Christmas morning!!!
I wanted to share with you all some of the gifts we have bought our little man. I literally have gotten at least one package with a smile on the box everyday this week. I've saved so much money using Amazon this year.. I can't even believe it!
#1: KidKraft Kitchen.
Does your toddler love to help you cook? Well mine is obsessed so he is going to be so overly excited about his own kitchen set. The best part about this is that it isn't super "kidish" looking. I love that it matches our white kitchen so I wont even mind having it out in the dining room!
#2: Cookware Play Set.
I wanted to get some pots and pans that look realistic. Have you ever tried getting your toddler a toy remote or camera and them knowing instantly that it's not real? Yeah, he wont have anything to do with fake "big kid" stuff. I think these will defintely fool him. Especially if I put them on my stove a few times!
Until I started hunting for the best toys, I had no idea what this thing was. Honestly, there is no explanation. Just watch this video and you'll be amazed too. I love that it encourages them to use their imagination! My husband is already wanting me to buy more!
#4: Vehicle DVD Player.
Long trips in the car definitely require a set of these. You can also score some cheap movies on Amazon too! I got three new releases for under $5 each!!
#5: Magnetic Doodle Board.
I have a feeling this one is going to be a huge hit. He's played the drawing games on our iPad but gets frustrated because when his other fingers touch the screen it throws him off. I think the pen and stamps are going to be perfect.
#6: WASHABLE Markers.
Did you read that "washable" part? Markers in clothes and on carpet are no fun! I am excited to bring craft time into our daily routine.. Because I'm "that mom" (;
#7: iPad Lifeproof Case.
We recently bought an iPad for the family. And a case was a necessity! My husband and I both have lifeproof cases on our iphones and it has made things SO much easier. These things can go underwater, in the dirt, thrown across a hard floor. Virtually indestructible. Well worth the money to not have to worry about it breaking!
#8: Magnetic Bathtub Boats.
Because what little kid doesn't want to have these. It's a little train of boats... How cool!
#9: Basketball Hoop.
Because they need to learn this skill young or they end up like me. A grown up who cant get past kindergarden in the game of school.
#10: LeapFrog LeapPad 2.
I realize he may not fully understand every part of this little gadget.. But I'm sure he will catch on in no time. I mean, he can work my iPhone.
#11: Rody Horse.
We came across this little guy in a small toy store downtown. These things are so awesome and help develop balancing skills and coordination.
#12: Activity Table for Legos and Train Sets.
Because I don't want to be that mom who steps on legos all day long. I'm hoping this table gives him his own space for his legos and cars.. To where he wants them to stay in/on the table. Plus, it is a pretty awesome design and will look pretty nice in his new toddler room that we're working on!
There is a reason Chuck E. Cheese, McDonalds, and any other kid play areas always have tunnels to crawl through. Kids love them!! I love that this folds down practically flat for storage. I can just see him and his daddy playing and rolling around in this thing!
#14: Outdoor Playhouse.
My toddler love, love, loves to be outside. He is SO going to enjoy his new playhouse with a built in slide! We love this also because it can be moved around easily.
This is a given. Books never get old! We have so many, I really need to find a good bookshelf also. Let me know if you have any suggestions! I read this book to my little sister when she was a toddler, so I knew it needed to be a part of Carter's library!
