Stocking stuffers for babies and toddlers are one of my favorite things to shop for! Because babies and toddlers aren't super into the unwrapping thing yet, the stocking is often the most exciting part of their day (and mine too).
I did a previous post on stocking stuffers for the entire family, but I wanted a blog post just for stocking stuffers for babies and toddlers since this is my current stage of life.
Here is one of my favorites, using our Play-Doh Activity mats (any of our busy bags would also be perfect stocking stuffers for babies and toddlers:
At home with the kids? Instantly access any of these printable activity bundles to keep them learning!
I recommend starting NOW on your stocking stuffers for babies and toddlers so that your Christmas expenses are spread out over the next few months rather than all at once. Some of my favorite recommendations are below, but I advise also checking out Zulily for some fun stocking stuffers as well. They usually have TONS of stuff.
Stocking Stuffers for Babies and Toddlers:
- Thomas Take N Go Trains. My son carries his around EVERY DAY. This is one of my favorite stocking stuffers for toddlers
- Mini Pull-Back Cars
- Wet Brush (he wet brush is AMAZING, please don't pass this one up if you haven't heard of it)
- teether toys
- baby books
- Feeding utensils
- Baby treats and snacks
- Reusable Food Pouches
- Muchkin Traveling Flash Cards for Baby
- Fun Socks (My babies don't wear shoes until they start standing, so fun socks are a must). I really enjoy Mary Jane socks and sneaker socks on babies.
- The Nosefrida. Say goodbye to the nasty, germ-breeding aspirator!
- A Wubbanub. Our daughter is getting one of these. It's exhausting how many times I have to put her binkie back in her mouth and these have great ratings!
If you wanted to add a few funny things to your babies stocking, these pacifiers are pretty unique:
My favorite is the “mustachifier“
Stocking Stuffers for toddlers:
First….FINGER PUPPETS! I have bought both kinds on Amazon because they are so ridiculously cheap and so fun!
Hape Toys (Be careful, they have so many fun wooden toys to choose from)!
Art Supplies: markers, sidewalk chalk, playdough (in the shape of a candycane), etc
Do A Dot Markers (You can find free printables online to use with these)
Hot Wheels Cars
Splashimals (Currently my toddler's favorite bath toy. They float as well as stick to the walls of the tub & tile)
Mini Books that will fit in the diaper bag (and stocking, of course)
Silly putty, Slinkys or yo-yos (although a yo-yo might be too advanced for a toddler)
Stick On Earrings! Who remembers these? I'm totally getting them for my very “girly” toddler.
I was suprised how many infant/toddler shoes Amazon sells for $5 or less! I HATE spending money on kids shoes because they lose them or don't wear them very long!
I'm showing a pic of girl's shoes because I have girls and I'm biased…but they have cute boy shoes too!
(They have both of these shoes in tons of colors for boy/girl)
Okay, this may or may not fit in a stocking, and it does encourage playing with your food, but I thought it was adorable! If you don't want your toddler playing with their food, this might make a fun gift for a college student 🙂 there are multiple versions of it.
Little Sticker Activity Books (Very cute for the $1-2 range)
