    Default Gift ideas for a 2 yo boy who already seems to have everything

    I'm going to 2 yo birthday party this weekend and I'm stumped on what to gift this child. He is incredibly spoiled already and tbh I have no idea what 2 yo boys like! I don't want to spend a large sum of money either as money is a bit tight until my return to work in a few weeks but I don't want to look like a tight wad either! Ideas please?

    I second board books DS is 2 in May and absolutely loves books! Especially if there are trucks or animals in there.

    Consumables - kmart have some cheap craft kits or you could make you own with pretty paper, stickers, pencils etc.

    Colouring books, crayons, stickers, trucks/cars. Kmart or Big W are good for kids stuff, I always get ideas when I walk around these stores.
    Happy shopping!

    Agree that consumables are great. Depends on the child and how much he sticks stuff in his mouth, but crayons, stickers, scrapbook, pencils, playdoh, felt boards, painting stencils were hits with my DD at that age.

    Trying to think what my DD got for her second birthday. Gardening things were great - I think she got a pot, some seeds, little gardening tools. A little gardening kit could be good for him to see something grow, and doesn't require anything on his parents' part if they don't usually garden. Schleich animals (realistic plastic animals), clothes, flash card type things with animals on them, books, craft things, sandpit toys (truck, bucket, spade), playdoh, bee-shaped lunch bag. It was only 6 months ago, but that's all I can remember :P

    Target have a big range of pyjamas marked down at the moment. You could buy summer pj's in size 3 or 4 for now and still get wear out of them for next summer. Or a lot of their brand (Spider-Man, cars etc) winter pj's are between $16 & $20.

    Default Gift ideas for a 2 yo boy who already seems to have everything

    For a 2yo Boy of Girl, I always bring some coloring pens.

    Not any brand, this one : "Aozora Baby Crayon"

    They are the best. They only draw on paper, they don't leave marks on skin/walls/table/clothes, they are cute and stackable, they don't need sharpening ever and they don't break when thrown on the floor.

    It's always a hit. I also offer a book of blank pages to go with the pencils

    Cost me $15 with the paper.
