Make it fun

Remember that you’re shopping for a two-year-old. It doesn’t have to be overly complicated, but make it fun. When it comes to 2s, you don’t want to make it too practical, but not over the top either.

Believe it or not, but 2-year-olds have an opinion and a very strong one. Before you even begin shopping for the 2-year-old in your life, please know what they like. You do not want to bring unicorns to a party for a princess (unless it’s a princess unicorn).

Remember they are only 2 once

It’s hard to shop for things today because there is SO MUCH to choose from. When I’m shopping for a toddler I always think about the fact that they will only be this age once. How often does someone turn 2? Not very often! It’s my job (as the gift shopper) to make it fun and I intend to do so.

There are some two-year-olds that will tell you as it is. When you ask them what they want, they’ll have an answer for you. If you are at a loss for what to buy the 2-year-old in your life, just ask them, they will have it all figured out.
