piggy bank'Tis the season to be checking those lists and checking them twice. If you have a toddler on one of them, the choices can be overwhelming, and it seems like they want everything and nothing all at the same time.

But kids this age are also some of the most enthusiastic recipients of gifts. They see magic and possibility in the bows and the boxes, and you don't want to disappoint. You don't have to spend a fortune to wow them though. There are plenty of amazing, affordable gifts out there that will thrill toddlers. Here are 10 unique ones I've found.

While these gifts are cute, they are also boring! Even as an adult, getting a piggy bank would suck! lol. n what kid cares about a growth chart? If you're kids would like these, then that's awesome, but I'll stick with Legos, cars, barbies and costumes!

cute but i see number 7 not going over so well in my house lol i do like the tea set though and if it came in boys colors i would definatly get it for my 2yo. 

@amanda... the little squeeky eggs are great. my sons speech therapist has them, keeps him fully occupied while she does her write ups.

A growth chart is not a gift. I honestly can't see getting any of these for my three-year-old except for the Stomp Rocket. Maybe.

My kids LOVE temporary tatts. They will be getting them in their stockings this year!
