Miss Mochaccino:  Well, my son is 3 months old, but I would say board books or other books with big colorful pictures. Maybe bath toys would be fun, or bibs since he’s probably eating solids now. You could always do a gift card to Babies R Us or something, too.

Miss Mochaccino:  

O-ball makes some cars that are fun.  I would also say some soft stacker toys or any of the lamaze crinkly toys (firefly is her favorite toy) or crinkly books or board books.  Rattles or anything that makes noise when you bang them or shake them. Baby Einstein Baby Neptune Ocean Orchestra, baby einstein take along tunes.  All very popular with my 6 month old. 

Other than specific colors of items, I find most baby toys to be gender neutral.  In my experience, most of them are not boy-girl specific at that age.  I have a girl but other than opting to buy something in pink (oball makes the exact same items in pink, blue, green for example) all of her toys would be considered gender-neutral.

I always get a collection of children’s books that I loved as a little kid… some for babies, a few for toddlers and older kids… and write a nice message in at least one of them.  That’s something they can treasure for a long time.

Stacking toys are always a winner but a firm favourite in our house with girls and boys at that age was the crawl and learn ball from v-tech. 2nd favourite was scout the dog from leapfrog and my daughter and her friend (who is a boy) still ove that dog!

Teething toys. My son is 6 months now and all he want to do is put things in his mouth. My son also likes toys where you can touch and it makes sounds and plays music maybe get the baby something like that.
