Gift Ideas for 2nd Graders

Updated on October 13, 2015

Birthday and Christmas gift ideas for second graders

Second grade is a great year for gift giving be it christmas gifts or birthday gifts. Not yet ready for the big toys and still holding onto the innocence of childhood. Second grade gifts should challenge and expand a seven year olds mind.

If you don't find what you are looking for here, check out my 3rd Grade Gift Ideas. We'll be looking for that perfect gift the kids will love.

Frozen is the Movie of the Year

The movie Frozen has become one of the most popular movies in 2014. 2nd grade girls love the movie and the Frozen action figures.

Flitter Fairies for 7 year olds - Girls version of a remote control car

Here's a great gift idea for a seven year old girl. The flitter fairies are not for everyone, but those that want to take the time to learn how to control the fairy will enjoy their fairy and having fun with their friends.

Fun Toys for 2nd Graders

I love the toy Bop It. If you remember the electronic game named Simon, this is the next version of that game. It takes it to the next level. Also try Hyper Dash as it makes the Simon game mobile.

Christmas Gift for Boys - Johnny the Skull by Fotorama Toys

We know 2nd grade boys love shoot em up games, although this may be more appropriate for Halloween than for Christmas, it gets them away from playing video games as this laser tag game uses the walls and ceiling as its "screen". Use the laser gun to shoot the ghosts on the wall as Johnny the Skull swivels around in all different directions. Great fun for all ages.

Legos for Girls in 2nd Grade

In 2012, Lego came out with two new seroes that will appeal to boys and girls. The series that will appeal to 2nd grade girls are Lego Friends. Lego created five friends: Olivia, Emma, Stephanie, Mia, and Andrea.

Angry Birds Toys and Games

Angry Birds became a sensation in 2011, and now there are many toys and games for those fans. For those that don't know, Angry Birds is an app on many phones and is also on Google+.

Non Fiction Books for Boys

One of the best non fiction books for boys is called the Dangerous Book for Boys. It is not your typical book, as it presents facts and information that are not normally found or given to boys. It includes tying knots, magic tricks, and information about girls.

Electronic Gifts for 2nd graders

Seven years old is about the right age to start them into the video game world. We gave our daughter a Nintendo DS last year. This year, you can find the more powerful 3DS handheld system.

Building Toys for 2nd graders

Building toys are great ways to get second graders to use their imagination. Simple Lego sets, Lincoln Logs, and Tinker Toys are my favorites.

Car Toys for 2nd Grade Boys

Boys love matchbox cars and hot wheels cars. Hot wheels are still the brand to look for when buying race tracks.

Start a Barbie collection for your second grade daughter

Holiday Barbie is a great way to start second grade girls in collecting barbies. Just be sure to buy one she will be able to play with as well.

What is a good gift for a second grader?
