My son’s first Christmas doesn’t seem like that long ago even though my “baby” is 6 years old now. I remember wondering what to buy for my little 7 month old that he would enjoy. I’m not sure what’s more difficult – shopping for little ones that can’t yet tell you what they want or shopping for older children that have wish lists a mile long. I’ve always had an easy time shopping for my own son because I know exactly what he has and the things he enjoys. Shopping for other people’s young children though can be a challenge. To help with your Christmas shopping list this year, we’ve put together a list of gift ideas for kids under two years old. I’ve put these together in fun little themed gift packages meaning there is the main gift and then a few fun extras to match the theme. Let’s get right into the ideas so you can see what I mean.
Gift Ideas For Kids Under Two:
Baby chicks, cows, horses, piglets, and more! All kids seem to love the adorable animals you’d find on a farm. This PLAYMOBIL 1.2.3 set is perfect for your little farmers. The PLAYMOBIL 1.2.3 sets are designed for kids 1.5 years and older. All the fun of PLAYMOBIL but with larger pieces made for little hands and without the smaller pieces that the littles may put in their mouth. I paired this fun My Take Along Farm with some other PLAYMOBIL accessories like the Farmer’s Wife with Hens and other people with animals plus some other farm-themed and age appropriate items like a farm colouring book where you use a water pen to colour (found at Chapters Indigo), an Old MacDonald Had A Farm finger puppet book (found at Chapters Indigo) and little farmers jean leggings and kitten shirt (found at Carters). A pair of jean overalls and a plaid shirt would also go perfect with this farm-themed gift set.
Mermaids are always popular with kids and this Go! Go! Smart Friends Shimmering Seashell Castle from VTech is a fun way to explore that underwater world. This adorable set comes with Pearl the mermaid and her seahorse and dolphin friends. This play set, designed for kids 1 to 5 years old, plays over 35 songs, sounds and phrases. It’s sure to bring a smile to the special little ones in your life. To complete this set, I stuck with the underwater theme and paired it with bath toys (from Walmart) and a hooded fish towel (from Carters).
Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my! This GearZooz Roll & Roar Animal Train from VTech includes fun sounds, playful phrases and kid-friendly questions plus the gears help littles develop their fine motor skills. There are so many buttons to press, gears to spin and animals to play with that this is sure to bring joy to the littles in your life. In this zoo-themed gift set I included some zoo animal finger puppets (from Carters), a baby tiger finger puppet book (from Chapters Indigo), a safari colouring book with a water pen (from Chapters Indigo) and some animal crackers.
This gift set is designed for the youngest littles on your shopping list. This Giggle & Grow Jungle Playmat from VTech includes 3 ways to play – floor play, take-along play and a detachable growth chart. It includes an electronic panel with buttons that your little one can press to play fun phrases, animal names and songs. The electronic panel, mirror and rattle are easily detachable so you can take this toy with you & your baby when you go out. I paired this jungle-themed play set with a jungle print sleeper (from Carters), a little lion stuffy with mini blanket (from Carters) and some jungle-themed rattles (from Walmart).
Some littles may not be born yet but you’re still looking for a gift for the new parents-to-be. This themed gift set is dedicated to sleep – something all new parents want more of! The VTech Safe & Sound Digital Audio Monitor gives parents that peace of mind when baby is sleeping. I then paired this set with a cozy little blanket and some adorable baby sleepers.
