CD with the baby's name
Many babies of this age respond to their own names. They may enjoy a music CD that has their name embedded on it. They make many such personalized CDs. You can get one with the Sesame Street characters, Mickey Mouse, or the Disney Princesses.
A lot of babies love to have books read to them, even at such a young age. You can get one or several books. You can choose the classics such as Winnie the Pooh or Dr. Seuss or go for the hottest new titles. These can provide many hours of fun for the baby.
You may want to give a gift of experience to the baby. For instance, you can gift them with a year membership to a children's museum. Some of these are suitable even for children that are this young. A lot of babies enjoy looking at animals so a zoo membership can be fun as well.
Babies love dolls to cuddle and hold. Make sure that you get one that is safe for infants. You can choose a favorite animal. They also sell dolls that are personalized. Some people like the Taggies brand, which has bright and colorful tags to interest the babies.
