Christmas with a two-year-old is really something special. Whilst younger children might not quite understand the hype, or why gifts are being given, a two-year-old will very much understand how magical the festive season can be.
They’ll love all the sparkling lights which decorate the streets in December, and will happily sing along to all the Christmas tunes on the radio. And, of course, they’ll be excited to meet Santa and find out if they’ll be getting more than a lump of coal in their stocking come Christmas Day.
Because this is the first year they’ll really be taking it all in and getting excited for the big day, you’ll want to get a Christmas gift for your two year old that’s really special.
We’ve rounded up our pick of the best, from stocking fillers to bigger presents that will make their day when they rip off the wrapping paper on Christmas morning.
