How does eye-hand coordination develop? And they are things you go through and are costly. You could also ask for a charitable "adoption" in her name. I would not spend a lot maybe a few small hand toys and an outfit for the day.
I like the "start a collection" idea. We've done it for all our boys and I have to say that the easiest one we have is snowglobes. They're not just for Christmas anymore and, as long as you have somewhere that you can display them over time, it's really quite fun. My son with that collection is now 14 and he still loves it. We get globes as souveniers when we go on vacation or for birthday gifts, etc. You could also ask for a charitable "adoption" in her name.
There are all kinds of non profits that let you adopt an animal in her name. My 8 year old wanted to adopt a sea turtle last year so that's how I'm familiar with it.
Your local zoo may have a program like that, too are you in the Portland area? Washington Park Zoo may still have a program like this going; they used to. Finally, ask relatives to go to www. My son is 5 months and I am going through the same thing. Nobody wants to buy pratical gifts like savings bonds or diapers and formula. I fianlly asked for things in bigger sizes so I will have stuff for him as he grows and I won't have to buy it. I also put a limit on the amount otherwise it just gets out of control.
Also books are a good idea. It's something you can never have enough of. We also asked for a high chair and a booster seat. Good luck and have a merry christmas. Hi, I guess it's kinda hard for a 2 month old. One thing that her Great Grandparents did was purchase Savings Bonds.
We also just opened a college fund, and the family can put money in there. Also, what about starting a little "collection" of something.
There are some new hallmark ornaments this year that are "first in a series", a really pretty angel series my mom collected Berta Hummel ornaments for me, so when I moved out, I had some nice ornaments for my first christmas to put on MY first tree.
I have a girlfriend who was purchased a piece or set, I can't remember of China, so by the time she moved out, she had a set. Anyways, hope this helps with some ideas. I personally can't think of anything that would be something that she could grow up with. But something that I asked my family for my daughter was a month old at her first christmas is things I acctually needed for her. Diapers of the next size she will be going in to. Or clothing that she will need for the the next seasons coming up or her next size she will be entering.
It helped us out alot. Hope it helps a little. If you really have everything you need for your daughter ask them to set up an IRA for her. By the time she's old enough for college the interest would have built up.
Another thing, you may think you have everything you need but for most likey the next 2 years, you will be needing diapers and they are expensive after a while. Ask for a gift card to use at Babies R Us. You can get anything you need there. Our little Princess is 6 weeks as of Monday and my husband and I are going to be getting her a personalized piggy bank with her name on it.
Or another thing you could do is if family members have their own photo's of her, or you could make copies of your own, each person family group could make a personalized scrapbook page of their own to put in a larger scrapbook for her.
Other then that I'm not sure sorry. At that age all I wanted was diapers, wipes, ect I know they are not really 'fun' items. But your daughter is 2 months old so she doesn't know. And they are things you go through and are costly.
My dad and grandparents have been getting my baby savings bonds for her birthday and Christmas. Also, are her ears pierced? If they are or if you are planning on getting them pierced, ask for earrings. My baby is 16 months and she has gone through so many earrings. She started pulling them out around 8 months, so I always ask for earrings. I agree with what's already been said--ask for things down the road like toys and clothes appropriate to 6mos. I'm also never shy about asking for gift cards to somewhere like Target where you can get basics when you need them or something more fun for the little one.
I'd also recommend books. Not exactly the advice you're looking for, but I often find that people want to buy what they want to buy for babies and little kids and what they're really looking for is some sort of general theme or idea, so maybe just tell them the colors of your nursery and the name of a toy or linen or whatever company that you like I spent most of November saying "Robots or anything from Melissa and Doug".
You could just ask for toys or what not that she will need and or find interesting at any time before her next birthday and just put them away like a shape sorter block or one of those bead mazes kids love those. My son is 8 months old and this is his first Christmas. Instead of gettin him toys and what not I actually got him a Baby's first Christmas ornament. It is a little book where you can record their first present, their favorite toy, who they spent it with, cutest moment and etc.
You can even put a picture in there so that when she gets older she can look at it and know that she had a great first Christmas. Hope that you have a great Christmas. I would suggest first christmas ornament start a tradition also summer clothes in the appropiate size mos would be good often you think that you will have everything but then the next season comes and they are so much bigger and all of a sudden you have nothing.
Suggest bonds or some type of money saving programs such as CDs or something. They will mature by the time the baby is an adult and ready for it. Hope this helps, A. I've got a 2 month old baby boy. What I did for him and for his 3 y. I ask the grandparents to contribute to their college fund. Christmas Gifts for a 4 month old? I'm a first time mommy. My son is now 2 months old. Do you think it's silly to buy Christmas gifts for him and wrap it up to be put under the Christmas tree?
I know he won't be able to open the gifts and enjoy it as much as - let's say a 4 year old would. But do you think it's silly? Are you sure you want to delete this answer? I wouldn't buy a ton of gifts for him. Trust me if he's your first your relatives will probably go crazy buying gifts. You could spend some of the money you save not buying tons of gifts to maybe having family Christmas portraits taken. That way you have a way to commemorate his first Christmas.
Gifts For A 4 Month Old. Its not silly at all What we're asking people to do if they are going to buy him presents As far as under the tree- my fiance and I are planning on having a few things since he wont remember.

We're probably gonna have a decent amount for him under the tree but its going to be ornaments and creative things more than just toys.
No it is not silly. It is so fun to think about spending your first Christmas with the little one. My son was 7 months at Christmas Time and of course we were more excited than he was but the picture taking and getting him intersted in something for maybe a couple minutes was worth it.
For his first Christmas we bought him push toys, a jumpy thing, cloths, and little toys. A lot of the things he didn't play with right away but we had them for future use. This year we will have a 3 month old for Christmas. I am not going to get her much except like cloths and maybe floor toys. I hope ya have a Merry Christmas, it is closer than I realized: My daughter will be 4 months old just a few days after Christmas.
So far, I've bought her a couple musical toys and rattles. I'll be buying her developmental toys and a Baby's First Ornament too. Books are great gifts at any age also.
