Finding a gift for a 2-month-old can be a lot of fun. You get to mix the practical—think onesies, socks, and sleepers—with a personalized touch. Any time a gift can be customized, it becomes more meaningful.

Consider the baby’s size, parental preferences and taste, season, and location to help determine what type of clothes, toys, baby gear, and decor items may make the most appropriate and welcome gifts. We carefully considered value, material, toy safety, design, and any age, height, and weight recommendations, if any, when reviewing products.

Here are the best gifts for 2-month-olds.

Manhattan Toy Whoozit Rattle and Squeaker

A thoughtful gift to give to the parent of an infant is one that focuses on sensory development. At two months, a baby is becoming more interested in texture, bold prints, and shapes, which is why Mr. Whoozit is a classic favorite that touches on all these points.

The toy measures 8.5 inches and is designed in vivid colors and patterns that will help the baby focus. Crisp textures and sounds such as grasping loops, squeakers, and crinkle paper will teach the baby to touch and grasp. There is also a self-discovery mirror that lets the baby enjoy looking at their own reflection. This soft toy also has its own cheerful face (babies are hardwired to relate to faces from birth). It can be attached to the crib to keep the baby stimulated and used when traveling in a stroller or car seat.

What to Look for in Gifts for 2-Month-Olds

Practicality

While any gift is usually appreciated, typically, parents of young babies always love baby basics, from simple outfits and toys to baby shampoo, diapers, and wipes. So, if you aren't sure what to get, you can always help the family by purchasing some of the items they're sure to use on a daily basis.

Personalization

Any time a gift can be customized, it becomes more meaningful. So, write a personalized note in a board book, monogram a piece of clothing, or even just add a special note that explains why you bought the baby this particular gift. For example, parents who love art may like a picture to hang in the nursery.

Baby's Needs

Consider the needs and preferences of the baby and their parents when choosing a gift. For example, babies in cold climates may need an extra warm blanket. For those that live in a household with lots of pets, outfits covered in puppy or kitten faces might be a huge hit. The baby of sports-fanatic parents might appreciate sports-themed bibs or infant toys.
