Best presents for a 2nd birthday

Best birthday presents for your kids

I love to celebrate my son’s birthday. OK, who doesn’t like it? We want to make our kids happy and that’s perfectly fine. But sometimes we try to give them too much. We do not focus on things that they want to get. We are buying everything what we think is pretty and what we’ve always wanted to get. Without asking them what they like. Is not really fair so this year I’ve decided to buy only presents that are perfect for my son’s development stage. Also, I try to figure out what he likes the most and what will make him feel special.


There would be no fun without toys. Mostly we chose educationals toys. So we have a train which is teaching him how to count to 3 and first letters šŸ™‚ Also we bought him his first laptop. OK, calm down people it’s a toy laptop. We can choose two languages on it and he can learn how to spell simple words, recognising shapes and sing nursery rhymes.Ā Children learn best when they are engaged and enjoying themselves so that toys are perfect.

Books, books and books

Best Birthday presents for toddlers

We love to read books and it doesn’t matter if we read one book thousand of time. We still have a fun! So my son got a lot of books from every member of our family:) Everyone knows how he likes it. We bought books with his favourites cartoons characters like Paw Patrol or Bing. I don’t need to say how excited he was. He wanted to sleep with them. Also, we bought some book which can help to develop his speech.

Something that your child loves the most


Best birthday present from Giftpup

Yeah, he is a real freak pillow. He loves them more than his plush toys. He cuddles them in his sleep. So, we were really happy when we get his personalised pillow from Giftpup. It looks perfect and it’s quite big and soft. We were sure for 100% he will love it and we were right. When I try to lie my head down on his cushion I only hear” ‘NO, IT’S MINE!’. If you also have pillow lovers in your home you can find a personalised one hear.


It’s animated children’s television series based on the books by Ted Dewan and we love to watch it. I’m sure if you will buy your kid’s favourite cartoon character he will be in 7th heaven. Now when we have it we can play scenes from the cartoon almost all day.

Crayons and colouring books

Best birthday presents for your children

As almost every kid our son is an art master. He has a thousand of crayons but he is really good at hiding them or they just disappear for some mysterious reasons. From time to time we need to buy a new pack of crayons so, heĀ got some for birthday together with colouring books.

I think in a future he will be an aircraft pilot. You know how plain looks like in the sky yeah? It’s like a tiny spot but my son will catch it in a second. Every time we are on a plane he is so excited like it was his first time. It doesn’t matter that he already had plane toys we bought him a new one. And I think it was the best present for him. He played with it all day:)

When you want to buy something for your kids think about them. About their needs and things that they like not about something, you would like to get. Not everything that for you is pretty and cute will be good for them. We need to learn to listen to our children.

    Great suggestions! My kids are older and I often struggle to find the perfect gift for those children that are not in the age group of my children.

    We really need to be observant and listen to our kids. In giving gifs, it is prudent that we give them what they want rather than what we want. After all, it’s them who would play or use the gift and not us.

    You really do need to think about the things they connect with. Knowing my daughter and the things she likes helps in the gifts I give her and make all the difference because it’s a way of connection.

    We love giving books on every birthday from their first on because it is a tradition in our family. The first laptop sounds like a great learning tool.
