The most direct way is write down the convolution integrand and play around with the exponent. An indirect, but simpler way, is to take the Fourier transforms, which is very easy for these functions. The transforms will look very similar to the functions themselves. Then multiply the transforms together and take the back transform.

If your Gaussians are univariate, a whole solution is available here: http://www.tinavision.net/docs/memos/2003003.pdf

This is equivalent to the statement that if X1 and X2 are normally distributed with mean zero and variances s1^2 and s2^2, then their sum is normally distributed with zero mean and variance s1^2 + s2^2
