Yes - Okay, I feel like a retailer - already thinking about the holidays! LOL. But I am finishing up my first trimester and have been feeling awful and am just now starting to feel better - and have energy to get things done! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br>
My son will be exactly 2 1/2 in December and I am looking for some really creative ideas for gifts. He likes brio blocks (and legos and mega blocks too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> ) He also Loves Books (so I already have a bunch of those ready to wrap!). He doesn't get into video's or dvds. He likes music.<br><br>
Just wanted to see what other mommas were doing! Thanks for your input!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blahblah.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blah blah">

I am almost done Christmas shopping for my boys! I am due Christmas week, so I wanted all my shopping done in advance. I also do most of it online, so I've been getting bits here and there.<br><br>
For my 2 year old we got him an heirloom cloth Bible activity book(for church), a wooden camera, Melissa and Doug wooden mailbox with letters(he LOVES the post office!), a bunch of Fokmani puppets, a dragon cape and DH is making him a wooden magic wand(we got 2 capes and 2 wands, one for each boy), indoor Haba swing(shared gift for both boys), Haba doctor kit and wood canoe that you pull. I still need to order a few more things for him, I'm trying to find a certain type of drum with a large wooden drumstick(can't remember what its called though) and a large wood garbage truck.<br><br>
I love shopping!!!

would love to see that Bible activity book! Did you order it from somewhere?<br><br>
I am having a Discovery Toys party in a few weeks to get some free stuff <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> They have a lot of neat things - some are too noisy for me, but not all of them!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

**Wooden blocks (He loves lego and loves to knock things down)<br>
**Art supplies. (You can never have too much finger paint)

How about a music CD of children's songs?<br>
Also does he like to "cook" or help you cook? What about an apron for him? I am looking for one for my 3 y/o ds. Every time I use mine he wants one, I have to make him one out of a towel.
