I love stocking stuffers. You can always find great little things to stuff in there that will come in useful throughout the year.

I had a ton of fun with Nolan’s stocking this year. For babies under a year there are lots of useful things you can add to a stocking. As I was picking out things for our baby’s stocking I rounded up my top top 10 stocking stuffer ideas for babies, keep scrolling down to see them all!

Here are the Top Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Babies:

1. Teething Toys

Teething toys are perfect stocking stuffer gifts for babies. They come in a variety of cute shapes and sizes and are usually visually interesting and stimulating for a baby. I love this Lou Lou Lollipop Teething Toy which I will be adding to Nolan’s stocking. Lou Lou Lolipop is a favorite of ours!

2. Bath Toys

Another great option for stocking stuffers for babies is bath toys. I don’t know about your little ones but both my boys LOVE playing in the tub. As long as you are strategic in your selections, and don’t pick anything that will mold easily (or can’t clean/dry) your bath toys will add a few years. Some bath toys we have or are adding to our little guy’s stocking this year include these Paw Patrol Puppets, these Bath Boppers, and this Fishing bath toy.

3. Blocks

We travel a lot so I am always on the lookout for toys that will travel well. On our recent trip to San Diego Magna-tiles were a hit with both boys. I found this Tengu Pocket Pouch that I thought would be a perfect stocking stuffer for a baby — especially one that is often on-the-go.

4. Baby Food Gifts

Starting solids is such a fun and special milestone. There are so many things that you could fit in a stocking for a baby related to meal time. From first sippy cups to this Oxo on the Go Spoon, these will come in handy over the next year.

5. Dimpl

I love anything made by Fat Brain Toys. They have the best sensory and early development toys. We got the Dimpl for our recent trip to San Diego and Nolan loved it. It is a simple little silicone toy but it kept his attention and kept him engaged for a decent period of time. It also doubles as a teething/chew toy. We also loved the pipSquigz Loops.

6. Stroller/Car Seat Flashcards

We spend a decent amount of time in the car or a stroller so I love adding things to the handle to keep Nolan entertained. I found these fun Dada Flashcards from one of our favorite books by Jimmy Fallon. We also have the Eric Carle flashcards which have lasted us four years since Aiden was a baby. They don’t seem to sell those anymore but here is a similar set.

7. Pacifier Clip

A pacifier clip makes a great stocking stuffer especially since you can’t have too many! The Pacifier Clips from Templeton Silver are really special and the best part is they turn into a bracelet for mom once your little one outgrows the need for it.

8. Musical Moose

I saw this little moose from Fisher-Price and thought it was adorable. It’s an interactive toy that plays music, but it’s small so it won’t take up a huge amount of space in the house.

9. On-the-Go Breakfast Set

I spotted this adorable coffee cup teether by Fisher-Price and had to have it for Nolan. I found they have a whole breakfast set with a crinkly newspaper, the coffee cup teether, and a donut rattle. There is also a really cute Taco Tuesday set.

10. Manhattan Toy Mobile

We have this mobile for our road trips and we love it! It keeps Nolan happy and engaged on long road trips. It easily clips to the car seat or stroller.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic preschooler and newborn, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my first little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Realizing that we would probably have more kids in the future, I wanted to document everything, so we would remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
