Gift Idea: Consider giving twin gifts.
Make sure both Mom and child or Dad and child both get the same gift, so the fun of the gift is not just the gift itself but also the fun of doing something together. My hairdresser told me once that one of her best gifts was when she and her Dad both received go-carts. The go-carts were great, but she also loved the time with her dad. You would be surprised how many adults like to play with kid things like Legos, Erector Sets, or Lincoln Logs. Try giving a set to the child and a more advanced set for Mom or Dad. How about twin coloring books? You can give one with young-child pictures and one with grown-up designs. Kids love it when adults color with them.
