DD's birthday is coming up and we have NO idea what to get her! I was thinking maybe an anywhere chair because she loves DS's, but they take up so much room!
We usually get our children 1 gift for birthdays and have around a $200 limit since we don't do parties after one. I looked up the gift guides but couldn't find anything. They have tons of toys from grandparents (at least it feels like it). I'm at a loss!
She loves playing outside but it won't warm up here consistently for at least 6 weeks.

Dollhouse? Kitchen? Pass to a museum, zoo, etc... Classes?

@sorrycharlie: she might love dance classes, but times are so hard with me working and the other child! that's a good idea.
is it weird that she doesn't hardly play with her toys! She wants to be around me 24/7 when we are home!

DD2 is very into baby dolls so I'm probably getting her some doll accessories for her second.
DD1's birthday is end of April so I always get outdoor stuff even though it doesn't stay warm till mid June here. For her 2nd, we got her a Radio Flyer trike!

H loves her Nod chair but yeah, they take up so much room. She really likes her toddler size table and chairs too.

I second the play kitchen idea. Or I had a play beauty salon set when I was young! Or a tea party set with a small table and chairs!
Or if she likes to be outside, how about a small bike?

Friends gave our 2.5 year old this Scuttlebug ride on you for Christmas and it's awesome. She likes it better than the much more expensive balance bike she got for her bday. She rides it inside now but it can be an outside toy later on.

We got LO a scooter for her 2nd birthday! I will admit she doesn't ride it as much as I thought she would but it was a fun gift and I think she will get more use out of it as she gets older especially in the summer. It's a Micro Mini.

We got DD a balance bike for her 2nd birthday, but we probably should have waited. She's just starting to like it now at ~26 months and still isn't really THAT into it. I think she'd love the Scuttlebug that @Foodnerd81 posted though! My DD likes her Baby Stella and accessories, and is also pretty into Duplos, and plays with her kitchen pretty much every day...other than that, she's not into toys as much as running around, balls, going to the park, etc so I don't have many other suggestions.

Duplos! We got LO some for her 2nd birthday in Sept and Christmas and it gets played with every single day. More than her babies, more than her play kitchen, more than anything.

A play market stall with a shopping cart. I think it's more age appropriate than a play kitchen. It would be a good way to introduce the different food groups or even shapes and colors.

We have a Scuttlebug and LO loves it.

My 2+ year old loves her play kitchen, shopping cart, dolls, doll stroller and outdoor play house. She's just starting to get more into the dollhouse she got for Christmas. Oh and her trampoline (which is currently inside).

I think we will get the ikea play kitchen and some pots and pans for DD. She's really into coloring and makeup right now though so maybe we will get some extras as well.

DD is 2 in 2 weeks and we got her a play kitchen for Xmas she is obsessed with! Been playing with it nonstop since we got it and it's fun for me, too!

We are suggesting these gifts for our son from family that asks:
It's cold here too but he has more than enough indoor toys!

I second what another poster said about duplos. Our daughter plays with hers constantly.
Other ideas are a slide, play kitchen, sandbox, cozy coupe, art easel (Melissa and Doug or IKEA), baby Stella, and any type of blocks (wooden, bristle blocks, etc)
