  • Presents for two-year-olds, with Me&Buddy

    I’ve been thinking about presents for two-year-olds recently, as someone has a birthday coming up soon (yikes!). Two’s a funny age, isn’t it? It’s that mid-toddler stage where they’re in to everything but still too little for lots of things – plus what presents do you get the two-year-old who(‘s sister) already has everything?

    Presents for two-year-olds - Design Letters cups

    Step forward Me + Buddy, brand new children’s lifestyle store featuring a whole load of hand-picked, design-lead products for babies and toddlers which are all useful AND looks beautiful, plus make perfect presents. Brands include Aden + Anais, Storcsac, Ferm Living and Nor-folk among others, and there’s lots of things for mums too, including uber cool Tiba + Marl change bags.

    I was asked to pick out my favourite products, so here’s some ideas on a second birthday theme with my favourite presents for two-year-olds, including…

    Presents for two-year-olds - Design Letters initial F cup with toddler lid

    Gift ideas for toddlers - Nor-fol age 2 number top

    Design Letters alphabet cups…I already bought the E cup for Eliza last year, so knew her sister would like her own (plus you can also get the lid to turn it into a sippy cup – genius!) And what could be a better present than a top with your age from it? You can get this Nor-Folk number t-shirt in a couple of different colours and ages.

    Good books for two-year-olds - Babar's yoga for Elephants and Pop Art Baby

    Brilliant books for toddlers - Pop Art Baby art word board book

    Also books – which you can’t ever go wrong with at any age. I loved this Pop Art Baby board book and Babar’s Yoga for Elephants (I loved Babar when I was younger! So this is basically for ME, but thought it was a nice accompaniment to Cosmic Kids yoga).

    Gift ideas for two-year-olds - Fox wobbler toy from Kid O

    And finally we have so many toys already but I loved this little guy, a fox wobbler from Kid O (anyone remember Weebles?)

    Me & Buddy is the brainchild of Madeline Walsh, mum of two – Buddy is the nickname she gives both of her children – who believes parents should be able to buy baby and toddler products that are stylish and fit into your existing lifestyle.

    At the moment there’s 10% discount off the first order when people sign up to the newsletter and a free Buddy the Bunny bag with every order. I think it’s a mark of a good baby store when you want everything (for the…children, of course *ahem*). And I really do – there’s so many stylish baby essentials and beautiful gift ideas.

    Thanks to Me & Buddy for sending us the products in the post for review…More posts…a toddler room tour, making a felt ball garland and two things for mums of toddlers to know

      I always find it tricky buying for really young children as I’m always torn between buying something I think the CHILD would like – bright, cheery, probably plastic – and something I think the PARENTS would like! These look like they’d please everyone!

      Oh my goodness these are SO cute and pretty! I’m also on the hunt for suitable presents for a certain 2 year old’s birthday. Weep. How did our babies get to be nearly two years old already?!
