Phew! How many of you have been doing your Christmas shopping this weekend? We did a bit on Black Friday and I'll be snagging a few things for the kids today.
Both my kids get a ton of gifts and gift cards from our extended family so we tend to keep things pretty simple on the gifts-from-us-and-Santa front.
Santa fills the stockings and brings everyone one big (i.e. expensive) gift. Then, mom and dad toss 4-5 gifts under the tree from them.
My kids rarely get toys and electronics outside of their birthdays so we love to splash out a bit during the holidays.
I am generally willing to spend up to $200 for their gift from Mr. Claus and between $20-$30 a piece for the gifts from us.
I save up all year long for this so it's not such a big hit to the wallet during December.
Here's what we're looking to get Finn this year for Christmas.
Gift Guide for a Two-Year-Old Boy
This is Finn's gift from The Big Guy. His sister has a bike and he desperately wants to have a riding toy, too.
Since he's not quite coordinated enough to manage a tricycle – this quad is ideal. And the fact that it's “his” superhero (check out the little shield on the front!) is perfection.
Is your kid a Daniel Tiger fan, too? Finn just loves that furry guy and we sing songs from the show A LOT.
To cut down on the number of times I am expected to drop everything and become a one-woman PBS song show, I'll be getting him this Daniel Tiger karaoke machine.
Every night at bath time, we turn on a bubble blower in the tub for the kids.
The one we're using now is slowly dying so, since we need a new one anyway… why not give it as a gift?!?! It's that time of year, y'all.
What is it with penis-wielding humans and their need for flashlights? I mean really.
I swear to God, we have like, a dozen all over my house but neither Finn nor my husband can resist getting a new one every couple of months.
This one plays music and has different colored lights so, hopefully, it will damper that flashlights need until summer, at least.
My little guy loves cars and I think that he's just old enough to really have some fun with this remote control tumbler car.
It looks like it can handle the hell that will be had at the hands of a toddler and keep on working.
At the end of every Story Time that we do at the library every week, the librarians dump out a big bin of toys and let the kids play for a bit.
One of the toys is a little treasure chest with plastic “coins” that you put in. Finn loves it so I thought this cute piggy bank version would be fun for while he's home.
