* Updated for 2019! * Ah, baby’s first Christmas! Still new and sweet…but oblivious to the joy of the season. What on earth do you get a baby that only sleeps, eats, and poops?

Stocking stuffers and gift ideas for babies under 1:
How cute is this?! I love this toy for so many reasons. This toy is completely non-toxic. Unlike other teething toys, it is completely free of BPA, PVC, and phthalates. It’s made of 100% pure natural rubber. (And it squeaks, which baby loves!)
This was one of my daughter’s favorite things when she was a baby. It actually kept her occupied!! She loved the crinkle sound! It comes in various colors and patterns, too.
When searching for a tub toy, you’ll want to make sure that you get one that is phthalate free and hermetically sealed so that it doesn’t grow mold and become toxic to baby. (Read more about how to choose safe tub toys here.)
Speaking of tub toys, these boats are fun for in or out of the tub! (Also non-toxic!)
This toothbrush is great for cleaning babies gums. PLUS babies love holding and chewing on it. Perfect for sore gums and sensory input. (Also non-toxic!)
Mostly this banana toothbrush makes the list of gift ideas for babies under 1 because my daughter was obsessed with hers.
This is an awesome book to help stimulate baby’s visual development. It also has a little “mirror” at the end, so your baby will love looking at himself.
These adorable stroller/car seat carrier toys come in a variety of animals to choose from: wolf, bunny, panda, and fox (pictured above). They are organic and hypoallergenic!
This ball is so colorful and has so many textures for sensory stimulation. It’s also safe! It’s made of 100% pure natural rubber and certified non-toxic.

I love this mobile for its high contrast images to promote visual development. You can also change out the cards to give baby a variety.
A must-have for any baby, you can start using these as young as three months or whenever teething symptoms start. I trust Hazel-Aid as the most reliable brand.
I love this rattle because it’s a rattle and teething toy in one. Win-win!
How cute is this little lollipop? Baby will love munching on this and you’ll love that it’s completely non-toxic.
A baby won’t groan about receiving clothes as a gift like an older kid. Take advantage of this! (Haha!) One important note: When you shop for pajamas for your baby, be sure to get the kind that say “snug fitting”. This will ensure the clothing hasn’t been treated with nasty flame retardants. These organic burt’s bees jammies are safe (and super-cute)!
Great for babies six months and up, this maze will be tons of fun and promote hand-eye coordination.
I started using this kit when my baby was about five months old. She learned so much at an early age. Her favorite is the touch-and-feel animal cards.
Every baby needs a keepsake ornament for their very first Christmas! Don’t forget to include one in your baby’s stocking.
