  • Well if they have every toy under the sun like my son lol I would do something a little out of the box. Try opening them a bank account and start putting money into it. They are so young they dont even know what is going on with their birthdays. Make the party fun with lots of games face paintings etc and put the "present" money in an account for a rainy day! GL happy birthday to your little ones!

  • If they have a favourite cartoon character or something like trains, boats animals and such then why not get them an outfit with that on it. I know clothes are something that is less than desirable for kids but with it having something they are interested in you can't go wrong.
    Do your kids like to make crafty things? Visit your local craft store and get them something age appropriate. In our house craft supplies are always needing to be replinished.

  • a fake child vaccuum if they dont already have one..or a little broom...when my SOS neice turned two they got her that and she absolutely adores it...something about toddlers liking to mimick adults..so getting them a fake "adult thing" makes them really excited. She whips it out whenever anyones vaccuming!
