Buying gifts for 2 year olds can be tricky. They are starting to voice their opinions more, and will honestly tell you if they like something or not.
This is a great time to introduce your independent little one to some educational toys that help expand their vocabulary, and imagination.
It's also a great time to ask them what they like. A lot of two year olds will be able to vocalize certain characters or toys they like, so listen!

2 year old Gifts FAQ
2 year olds love dressing up, pretend play toys, and coloring. Other ideas include a tricycle, teddy bear, or even a fun kid-sized piano.
Toys are great because toddlers need to play. Preferably as long as they aren't too noisy (for the parent's sanity). Clothes are another great thing, but don't expect too much excitement from a 2 year old.
Speaking from experience, my kids always got excited by stuffed animals and toys with Minnie mouse and Mickey mouse.
