Christmas Stocking Stuffers for Babies & Toddlers!
This post was updated on 10/22/2020
Ho Ho Ho — my favorite holiday is almost here, CHRISTMAS! If you’re like me, you probably need some ideas on what kind of Christmas stocking stuffers for babies & toddlers to get for your little one!
Building Christmas traditions with your little ones are definitely the one thing I’ve been SO excited about since becoming a parent.
For starters, stockings are a must in our family. We don’t go too crazy with our stocking stuffers, I mean they are pretty small, but we like to keep it fun.
Whether you’re celebrating baby’s first Christmas or your toddler’s 3rd Christmas, this list is FULL of stocking stuffers your little ones will LOVE!
Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Baby
Soft baby teething toys
Teething toys make a GREAT gift for baby’s Christmas stocking! Why? Because they will teethe for what feel like forever & they will need relief.
If your little one is around the age of 4 months – 13 months old, I’d say finding a teething toy in the stocking is a wonderful gift!
Baby rattles and squeeze toys
Babies LOVE toys that make silly noises and have fun textures! That’s what makes rattles and squeeze toys such a fun stocking stuffer for all babies.
This baby rattle set would be perfect for little ones as young as 3 months old and as old as 9 months old!
Baby’s First Soft Books
Soft baby books make a great gift because they’re fun to look at, fun to crinkle and eventually your baby will learn to read these words!
On top of having an entertaining new toy for your baby, you’re also exposing them to soft books perfect for their development! Great for littles 4 months old to 12 months old.
Bath Toys for baby
Make bath time more fun & entertaining with a fun set of bath toys!
Once we started taking baths in the tub (around the 5 to 6-month-old mark) we realized we needed to kick up the entertainment. These bath toys have kept our little dude SO entertained and content for many months, which is why I personally recommend them to everyone!
Baby Einstein Playful Discoveries
Encourage baby to learn with these developmentally fun and educational toys & books with Baby Einstein’s Playful Discoveries.
Silicone Baby Bibs
Silicone baby bibs are a lifesaver for any parent if you aren’t a fan of messy mealtime!
Plus, they’re travel-friendly! Simply roll them up, stick em’ in your diaper bag and you’re good to go! We use these all the time, even when we go out to eat and I swear by them forever!
Baby footed pajamas
Since it’s winter and will likely be cold for a couple more months, staying warm with some cute footed pajamas is always a good idea!
Portable White Noise Machine
The white noise machine can go hand in hand with toddler gifts just so you know.
If you haven’t read my post about HOW AMAZING white noise machines are to help your baby fall asleep, I suggest checking it out!
Baby block shape sorter
Shape sorter toys are a great way to expose baby to new textures and challenge their developing little brains to problem solve.
Not only is it a great toy for babies, but you might find your toddler having fun with it too!
Good quality sleep sack
We’ve used our fair share of sleep sacks for our little guy. The one that blew me away the most and changed the name of the game relating to sleep is the Woolino Sleep Bag!
I wrote a full review on this sleep sack so you can check it out here for more details, but it’s amazing. Every baby or toddler deserves this in their stocking.
Baby Training Toothbrush
Eventually, our babies will need to learn how to brush their teeth! What better way to get them acquainted than by using a training toothbrush!
We absolutely love these small banana-shaped toothbrushes because they have handles, making it perfect for your little one to hold onto and it has rubber bristles making it extra comfortable on their little teething gums!
These are small enough to throw 1-2 packs in your baby’s stocking for Christmas.
Touch and Feel Baby Board Book
My son has always loved touch and feel books. They’re great for providing sensory stimuli with various textures.
Not to mention the bright photos and drawings. Stock up on a couple of touch and feel board books for your little one this holiday season.
Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Toddlers
Sensory Bins & Toys
We absolutely LOVE these custom homemade sensory play bins by Think Play Magic. She creates a variety of different themes (even holiday ones) for littles to really put those thinking caps on and have fun exploring different textures, colors, toys, and more! You can snag a few of these bins or even her single cup playdoughs here!
Splash Free Drinking Cups
If you thought babies were messy, toddlers are right there with em’!
Using a solid set of splash-free drinking cups can prevent lots of unwanted mess when they decide to slam their cups down, you know, fun times!
Bathtime crayon set
Just because your baby is now a toddler, doesn’t mean they don’t need entertainment during bathtime!
This Crayola crayon bath set does a great job making bathtime fun!
Mess-Free Coloring Books!
These water activated coloring books are so much fun for little toddlers!
They’re even more fun for parents because there is NO MESS! No more worrying about your walls getting marked up, just a nicely colored book all thanks to the H2O magic of these coloring books!
VTech TV Remote for Toddler
If your little one is anything like mine, I’d bet they just looooooove stealing your tv remotes.
I’ve had to hide our TV remotes and in place leave this toy tv remote out on our coffee table. This way, he “steals” this one instead.
If you have a remote bandit on your hands too, this would make an EXCELLENT stocking stuffer 🙂
Educational Wooden Puzzle
There’s nothing more fun than challenging our little one’s thinking when they use these educational puzzles.
Watching them work through problems and figure things out on their own is so rewarding for us as parents and for them!
This is my all-time favorite puzzle, my little guy doesn’t have the hang of it yet, but he can get a couple of shapes at a time. I’m so excited to watch him keep progressing. Plus, it keeps him entertained for a while!
Smart Toy Piggy Bank
This little piggy bank is fun and makes a great stocking stuffer for a few reasons!
It encourages your little one to learn how to count, it’s interactive and also helps them develop their hand-eye coordination to put the little coins into the piggy bank! Definitely a stocking stuffer you can’ go wrong with!
Light Up Learning Clock
This smart interactive clock toy promotes educational learning and helps teach your little one how to tell time!
We love the fact that it actually reads out the time and also has some nice little songs it plays.
Chalk is a fun way for your little toddler to get creative and express themselves!
It also is a great way to encourage them to play outside more and get some nice sunlight. With these Crayola sidewalk chalks, you don’t have to worry about a mess as they’re easily cleaned up with a little bit of water!
Non-Toxic Play Doh
Who doesn’t love play-doh?! I remember being a little kid making the COOLEST little sculptures with play-doh all the time!
Although it’s non-toxic, you’ll definitely want to be sure your little one doesn’t decide to eat it all.
I hope your little one enjoys these stocking stuffers this holiday season! I know my son will have PLENTY of cool new toys and items to keep him entertained this Christmas 2021!
Which Christmas stocking stuffers do you think your children would love to open up this Christmas?
