Gift Ideas for 2 to 3 Year Olds

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe how soon Christmas will be here! I’ve been busy working on my shopping list, and thinking of all sorts of fun things that I’d love to get Liam and Nyah for Christmas.

We’ve already started listening to Christmas music and reading an average of 5 Christmas stories a day! haha Liam’s current favorite is The Polar Express, which is possibly where his recent interest in trains has come from!

With Thanksgiving next week, it is getting time to start those Christmas lists, so I thought I would share our 2 year old boy’s wish list & some of our favorite gift ideas for a two to three year old boy (or girl!). I will hopefully be sharing sweet baby Nyah’s wish list soon as well!

gift ideas for 2 to 3 year olds

1. Excavators! – What little boy is not obsessed with construction vehicles at this age?! Liam and I were at the park the other day and ran across some pretty awesome construction vehicles by Bruder. Here are a couple that are on his Christmas wish list!

Bruder JCB Midi CX Loader Backhoe – a sweet little boy let Liam play with this for a good hour – all the parts are fully moving and an exact replica of the real thing! He loved it & Mama already has it ordered for under the Christmas tree!

Bruder CATERPILLAR Track-Type tractor – this is another one that we played with – they were definitely popular among the crew we were playing with.

2. Black and Decker Deluxe Tool Set with Toolbox – Liam loves helping Daddy build and fix things – this looks like such a fun tool set. They can even build their own tool caddy!

3. Educational Insights The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game  – This is a highly rated educational game for children. We’ve been playing a lot of Go Fish! and Seek-a-Boo these days, it would be fun to have a new game to play together.

4. Schylling Brio Farm Railway Set – Every little one needs a Brio train set – I love this farm railway set & I think it would entertain Liam for hours.

5. The Learning Journey Jumbo Floor Puzzles, Fire Engine Rescue – We have some awesome Melissa & Doug wooden puzzles that Liam has spent many hours playing with, but has now grown out of. I’d love to try doing some jumbo floor puzzles with him like these:

I hope you find some fun gift ideas from our list – we do a lot of imaginative play in our house and I think Liam will have a lot of fun with these games and toys! What is on your little ones wish list?
