I think it is an awesome gift.

Two year olds are really happy with anything anyone gets them. Seriously, a box would have probably have been alright.

And about the mother…. honestly don’t stress about her. Your gift should not dictate how she treats you. If she treates you like crap that just means she is a crappy person.

I think that’s a really great gift!  People in my family do stuff like this–when one person buys someone a larger gift, others get them smaller companion gifts.  He’ll probably be so excited about the powerwheels and the helmet will just become a part of that excitement!  Don’t stress, I think it’s great!  If the mother has a problem with it then whatever.  You clearly love your nephew and have thought about him!

Lame? No way! At that age all my daughter wanted was the wrapping paper, actual toys were just a nice bonus 🙂

I have a two year old son, and we got him a dune racer thing. I  assume its the same type of thing as the power wheels. My family asked for a list of stuff to get him, and one of the things I put on the list is a helmet! So I think that would be a very good gift!

@KatyElle:My niece just wanted boxes. We could have gone and picked up appliance boxes and her year would have been made.


I totally get it–FI is also a physicist and her funding also comes to an end next Friday–so we are totally there. Your nephew will love the gift and at 2, may not fully understand that you didn’t get him the car because you got him an accotrement for it. We do stuff like that all the time and my niece thinks that it’s a bulk gift. Last Christmas my Mom got her the Minnie Mouse kid kitchen–we got her an apron and a Minnie pot set. This year she’s getting a Babar bag full of books and other goodies out of the Target $1 section. 🙂

For my son’s 2nd birthday, my parents bought him a really cool tricycle and my grandparents bought him a foot propelled car. My sister and Brother-In-Law bought him a helmet and he liked the helmet best of the 3 gifts!! Not even kidding. I kind of felt bad for the people who had bought him the “big ticket items” lol It’s been 6 months and he still loves that helmet, he wears it around the house all the time for no reason, which is kind of funny.

Anyway, I think it’s a really sweet gift, I’m positive the 2 year old will appreciate it, and if mom doesn’t, that’s her problem!!

I think your gift is sweet, i am sure your nephew will love it! You’ve already tried your best so no need to feel worried. If the mother got pissed off by only a Xmas gift, then she is crappy and just don’t mind what she will say!
