Best Stocking Stuffers for Baby’s First Christmas
When Leo was little I always struggled with his stocking stuffers because what do you even put in a stocking stuffer for a baby?
Once I broke it down, I realized that there are so many useful stocking stuffer gifts for your baby for Christmas 2019 and you’re definitely going to find things on this list that are totally practical and thoughtful!
There are a lot of reasons to be excited for Christmas. The food, the lights, the coming together of loved ones, the tree and of course the magic of waking up on Christmas morning to discover what goodies Santa brought you in the night! There is something extra fun about stocking stuffers, especially if you’re the one adding trinkets and treats to your little one’s stocking!
I’m a sucker for over-the-top holiday shenanigans (much to my husband’s dislike). Can you blame me, though?
(This post contains affiliate links – I may receive credit if you purchase items from links on my blog. Check out the disclosure for more information. Thanks for supporting Sincerely Farah!)
I’m a firm believer that most of life’s daily struggles can be solved with a solid list. There is something so satisfying and rewarding about writing something down and sticking to it.
You know what you want and you don’t compromise. You are a savvy, strategic and focused shopper. Adorable holiday knick-knacks have nothing on you!
This is why I’m giving you a list today. Not just any list. A useful, practical, fun and fabulous list that will delight both you and your baby!
I went completely overboard for Leo’s first Christmas. As a new mom with Amazon prime, I went a little Ariana Grande in “Seven Rings”.
Someone change my Amazon login.
Like anyone with a Prime account and zero self-control, I have regrets. Leo didn’t use half the stuff I bought for him and I promised myself that I would do better. So I made a list of practical and fun stocking stuffers.
These lists become a game-changer for me! Now, I only buy exactly what I need for the upcoming year and Leo gets a full stocking on Christmas morning! Mom-win!
These are the items that Leo and my friend’s children have loved. This list is perfect for babies and even young toddlers.
Instead of blindly shopping for random trinkets and baubles, or ~shudders~ junk from the Dollar Store, which will be forgotten about in less than thirty seconds, fill your little one’s stockings with things they will love and actually use!
100 Useful Stocking Stuffers for Baby’s First Christmas
Stocking Stuffers for Feeding
We have a lot of kid-friendly cups. Too many cups, honestly. However, I like to switch out different cups for different occasions.
A new cup is probably the one item that I consistently put in Leo’s stocking every year because I know for sure that he will use it.
My absolutely favorite cups for teaching littles one how to drink are the Munchkin miracle cups.
Seriously, these cups are truly miraculous. They teach your baby how to transition from bottle to cup very quickly and easily. Even Beyonce uses them!
I also highly recommend the Munchkin weighted straw cup, which allows your baby to hold the cup at any angle, while still being able to reach the drink.
We have been using both of these Munchkin cups since Leo started drinking water at 6 months old and I cannot recommend them enough to new moms!
2. Baby Training Spoons: Olababy Training Spoons
These Olababy Training Spoons are genius! They are soft and flexible enough for your baby to hold and chew without getting hurt. These spoons are perfect for a new baby still trying to master his or her pincer grasp because of its thick handle.
The flexible tip means that your baby can easily scoop the food onto the spoon and actually keep the food on the spoon, which is a big deal. This spoon also doubles as a teether. Simply keep it in the freezer and let your baby gnaw away!
3. Strong Suction Bowls: Babie B Suction Bowls with Seal-Easy Lids
You can’t go wrong with a set of suction baby bowls that actually have strong suction. I was so excited for Leo to start eating but I completely underestimated the amount of food that would end up on the floor.
These bowls are essential for when your baby is ready to start eating. This bowl set is perfect because it includes lids so you can store your baby’s leftovers or use these bowls as snack containers when you’re on the go.
4. Silicone Bibs: Happy Healthy Parent Silicone Baby Bibs
These are the Silicone Bibs you will need for your baby’s journey into solids. We still use these bibs almost 2.5 years later. They are sturdy and oh so easy to clean. They also catch all of the food so your’s baby’s outfit can stay clean and on point!
We even throw these bibs in the dishwasher and they have held up remarkably well. Fantastic product!
5. Snack Cups: Munchkin Snack Catcher
Leo is almost three years old and we still use his Munchkin snack cups almost every day. He still loves toting it around and I still love the fact that I don’t have to clean up cereal that’s flown everywhere. We don’t go anywhere without this thing. It’s very important in our household.
6. Food Feeder Pacifier: Ashtonbee Baby Food Feeder
I have A LOT of love for these fruit feeders. This is probably one of my favorite baby products of all time.
I cannot emphasize how much use we got out of this product. Whenever when Leo was teething (which all the time, btw), I would fill this bad boy up with fruit, fruit puree, straight up breastmilk and let him go to town.
Leo also loved exploring new flavors with this fruit feeder and it helped relieve his sore gums. I could put pretty much any food inside and he would try it.
These are also a perfect way to introduce new solids to your baby to see how he or she will react.
Honestly, whoever invented these should win some sort of innovation award because are a game-changer!
7. Fruitsicle Tray: Nuby Garden Fresh Fruitsicle Frozen Popsicle Tray
Teething baby? This popsicle tray is just what the doctor ordered. You can milksickles out of breastmilk or you can make your own popsicles out of baby puree. Genius!
When I want Leo to get a bit of extra fat, I make him greek yogurt fruit pops. When he’s not feeling well, I make him some vitamin C popsicles. The possibilities are endless. This is one product that you will keep coming back to.
8. Munchie Mug: Munchie Mug Snack Cup
Parents rave about this snack cup because it keeps snacks in and spills out! This is a great snack cup because it gives your baby the ability to hold the cup like a big person without making a huge mess. I consider that a win.
9. Fork and Spoon Set: Munchkin 6 Piece Fork and Spoon Set
This fork and spoon set is perfect for beginners learning how to self-feed. This set has thick handles so it’s easy for your baby to grasp and the scoop is wide enough to retain purees.
The forks are also a bit pointier so your baby will be able to pinch solids with ease. This is a great little set that will help your baby conquer self-feeding.
10. Silicone Placemat: OSHO The Original All-in-One Non-Slip Silicone Plate Placemats
We have several of these durable, easy to clean silicone placemats. These mats are perfect for sparking your baby’s imagination while making mealtime more fun! I especially love the whimsical design of this math with the sun and clouds. Simply adorable.
11. Snack Jar: BlenderBottle GoStak Twist n’ Lock Storage Jars
This snack jar is a diaper bag necessity. When the snack attack hits (and it does often with little ones), be prepared with this handy snack jar that can hold a variety of snacks in different shapes and sizes.
Your baby will love picking and choosing a different snack from this neat little jar.
This snack jar is compact enough to take with you on the go but can hold enough snacks for when your little one’s snack craving hits. This is a great stocking stuffer for adults too!
12. Mini Thermos: Skip Hop Baby Zoo Insulated Food Jar and Spork Set
I am a huge fan of thermoses, especially for little ones. I always kept a thermos full of warm puree or cold fruit for Leo on our outings because I wanted him to eat healthy meals while we were on the go.
A thermos is a great way to ensure that your baby is eating well even when you don’t have the convenience of reheating or cooling foods.
This thermos holds just enough food for littles ones and comes with a spork so your baby can enjoy his or her meal while out and about.
13. Splash mat: Paw Legend Washable Highchair Splat Floor Mat
A splash mat under your baby’s high chair is not one of those products you think you need but once you have it, you can never go back to your old ways.
Keep your floors clean and your sanity in check by investing in a splash mat, which can also be used as a picnic mat, a play mat, a craft mat, and a changing mat.
This one is machine washable which is fantastic and sticks really well to flooring. Honestly, this splash mat is a need, not a want.
14. Organic Freeze-Dried Fruit: Happy Baby Organic Creamies Freeze-Dried Snacks
These Organic freeze-dried fruits are perfect when you’re on the go. Leo still loves eating freeze-dried fruit. These snacks are a mess-free solution for when your baby gets a snack attack.
15. Organic Puffs: Happy Baby Organic Superfood Puffs
Need I say more? The classic baby snack. Babies love puffs. It’s a universal fact. These Happy Baby organic puffs are loaded with goodness which will leave you feeling good about your baby’s snack choices.
16. Yogurt Melts: Happy Baby Organic Yogis Freeze-Dried Yogurt
Another favorite in our house. These Happy Baby yogurt melts are “little drops of goodness” made with yogurt and organic fruit.
17. Veggie Chips for babies: Lil Crunchies Mild Cheddar & Veggie Dip
These are the love child of Puffs and Cheetos, but healthier and made for babies. Lil Crunchies are perfect for little hands to grab on and munch. You may catch yourself sneaking in a few bites as well. I mean, who hasn’t snacked on their baby’s snacks from time-to-time?
18. Favorite Pouch: Happy Tot Organic Love My Veggies Spinach Apple Sweet Potato
Leo still happily consumes a post almost every day and I suspect this habit will last for a few more years.
These Happy tot veggie pouches are perfect for days when you want to get a few extra veggies in your little one’s tummy. These pouches are yummy and have will give your baby an extra boost of veggie goodness.
Alternatively, you can make your own pouches and store them in these reusable pouches.
19. Teething cookies: Happy Baby Organic Teethers
These organic teething cookies are perfect stocking stuffers for babies. They love the texture and taste. These cookies melt in your baby’s mouth and are perfect for helping them practice their pincer grasp. Also, great for storing in your diaper bag to hand your baby when you’re on the go.
20. Snack Bags: Bumkins Reusable 2 Piece Snack Bag
We still use these reusable snack bags almost daily. They have held up remarkably well and they are light and easy to transport.
These bags are great for dry snacks and fit perfectly in your stroller or diaper bag. I just rinse them out and let them dry overnight.
These bags are super cute and will help reduce the use of plastic. Love!
Stocking Stuffers for Comfort
I don’t know what it is about this crazy viral product but babies seem to love it! Leo still occasionally munches on his banana toothbrush and he still pretends to brush his teeth with it.
I think the simple design and the easy to grasp handles are a winning combination which babies just can’t deny!
The design is perfect for little hands to hold and little teeth to chew on. These banana toothbrushes make perfect stocking stuffers for babies.
I gift this to friends with babies and it is always a huge hit.
Teething toys are the ultimate stocking stuffer.
The Nuby teething kets are perfect for teething and will provide a cooling sensation on baby’s gums, while the Bebe cookie teethers are too cute for words and look and feel like an actual cookie which your baby will enjoy munching on.
Can’t go wrong with either and I would probably get both, to be honest, because who doesn’t love spoiling babies?
Another thoughtful, practical stocking stuffer. You can’t go wrong with stocking up on a few new pacifiers for a little one.
We are massive fans of the wildly popular Wubbanubs because they give your baby something to hold, while also being easy for you to find.
They didn’t have the Llama and the Unicorn when Leo was using pacifiers, but how cute are these?
I totally wouldn’t be able to resist getting one of each. I love Wubbanubs because even after your baby’s done with pacifiers, he or she can still use the little lovey as a comfort item. So sweet!
4. Lovey: Jellycat Lovey
Perfectly soft and undeniably adorable, this Jelleycat lovey can be used from birth.
These loveys are so soft and plush and make the perfect comfort item for your little one. A lovey makes a great stocking stuffer and a wonderful keepsake to include in your baby’s memory box so you can look back and ugly-cry like I do when remembering how tiny Leo used to be.
I especially love the reindeer one as a stocking stuffer for baby. So cute!
5. Classic Teddy: Vermont Teddy Bear
I think, even as an adult, I would love to find a soft, cuddly teddy bear in my stocking stuffer. A classic and timeless gift that your little one will cherish for years to come.

Okay, these are brilliant and I need one for my grown self. We have one for Leo that he loves to hold and cuddle with before bed.
These cuddly creatures are so soft and delightful and great for adults as well.
They bring so much comfort and are absolutely adorable to boot! Chef’s kiss to whoever thought to invest these.
7. Security Blanket: Muslin Swaddle Blankets by CuddleBug
Muslin blankets are literally the one baby item you can’t have enough of. We still use them constantly, years later with Leo.
There are endless and I mean truly endless uses with these blankets.
Your baby may get attached to one particular blanket so it’s best to double or triple up on the blankets so your baby always has a clean and fresh blanket to snuggle with.
These plain muslin blankets are also another fabulous option and can be used as absorbent towels as well!
8. Sleep Sheep: Cloud B Sleep Sheep On The Go Travel Sound Soother
We still use our Sleep Sheep when we are traveling because it is the perfect device to drown out the noise in a busy environment. The Sleep Sheep is perfect for your baby’s crib, bassinet, stroller or car.
You can remove the sheep to wash separately and it will look and feel as good as new! This is a classic baby must-have for good reason.
9. The Ultimate Teething Mit: Malarkey Kids Teething Mitten
Ah, the wildly popular Munch Mitt. Invented by a mom so you know it’s legit. Everyone in my mom group constantly raves about this.

This adorable stocking stuffer is sure to delight, amuse and soothe your baby. Plus, it comes in so many adorable prints and colors. I’m obsessed with the cactus mitt.
10. Teething necklace: Goobie Baby Audrey Silicone Teething Necklace
There must be something oddly satisfying about pulling and chewing on mom’s necklace because all babies love to do it.

The best part, it doesn’t even look like a teething necklace!

It also comes with a soft, warm night light.
This sound machine is the perfect addition to your baby’s nursery that will have your baby drifting off into a deep sleep with ease.
The baby shusher is also a great and very popular alternative to this sound machine.
12. Teething Drops: Boiron Camilia Baby Teething Relief Drops
These Boiron teething drops are legit. I love all the products by Boiron and highly recommend them. I keep a pack of these homeopathic drops in my purse, in the stroller, in my diaper bag, and in Leo’s room.
They are super easy to dispense and Leo doesn’t mind taking these drops at all. I’m obsessed with the entire line of Boiron products and recommend them to all parents.
13. Amber Teething Necklace: Baltic Amber Teething Necklace
I know so many people that swear by amber teething necklaces (which you’re supposed to tie around baby’s ankle). I definitely plan on trying a teething necklace if I have another baby.
These necklaces have gained so much popularity over the last few years since they are supposed to reduce fussiness and drooling related to teething.
If you’re a fan of teething necklaces, this is a great little stocking stuffer that even comes with a bonus silicone teething necklace for your baby!

You can’t go wrong at this price point and it makes for such a sweet and thoughtful stocking stuffer.

This medicine dispenser is a lifesaver for babies that are picky about taking medicine.

This medicine dispenser is similar to the ones used in hospitals and works with all standard oral syringes. What a smart idea!

No problem! Simply change your baby’s clothes and put the soiled clothes in a wet bag to wash at your convenience, without getting the mess all over your diaper bag.

Stocking Stuffer Christmas Traditions
You can always put similar items in your child’s stocking every year. For example, you could stick with just the basics such as:
- An item they want – maybe a small toy or experience gift
- An item they need – maybe a new toothbrush
- Something to wear – a pair of socks
- Something to read – a new book
My final tip is to put something consistent in their stocking which they will know to expect and will look forward to every year. Whether that’s a special treat or trinket is up to you, but it can be the start of a wonderful family Christmas tradition.
