Filling your baby’s first Christmas stocking is so much fun. These 17 favorite baby stocking stuffers will provide you with loads of inspiration. Whether you are looking for baby stocking stuffers for your 6-month-old or your 12-month-old, this list will give you some ideas.
I have to admit, I did not fill a stocking for my son on his first Christmas. I mean, he was less than a month old so I just figured he wouldn’t know the difference. By the time his second Christmas rolled around, I was so excited to fill a stocking for him, but I honestly didn’t know what to put in it. However, after a couple of babies under my belt, I definitely have more creative ideas this year on what to include in my 9-month-old’s stocking.
Here are some creative and fun ideas for your baby’s stocking. (By the way, if you have a toddler check out my toddler stocking stuffer ideas as well.)
17 Best Baby Stocking Stocking Stuffers
We love the EZPZ tiny cup for my 9-month-old and have been practicing using an open cup with it since she was only 6 months old. EZPZ also has the mini cup and straw training system which I’ve definitely had my eye on to help teach my little one to use a straw!

If you are looking for a nicer, yet practical stocking stuffer for your baby, this Bapron is easily our favorite bib. It cleans up so easily, dries quickly, and covers the babe well. I also have a toddler size for my 2-year old which he uses for really messy meals as well as when we bake together.
I featured these on my toddler stocking stuffer list as well. These silicone snack cups are adorable and perfect for babies or toddlers on the go.
I love these pouches and will certainly include a few in my baby’s stocking this Christmas. They are full of high-quality ingredients and nutrients – veggies, fats, and proteins. Although we primarily do baby-led weaning with Avie, we do use pouches if we travel or dine out. You can get 15% off your first order with coupon code Josten15.
We have a toy very similar to this moose activity toy and my 9-month-old has loved it for months and still enjoys it!
We use these spoons when our babies first start baby led weaning and learn to self feed. They double as teethers and the soft flexible tip makes it easier for the baby to scoop. We used ours for our son who is now 3 and are using them again for our 9 month old and they have held up really well.
These organic creamies feature coconut milk and freeze dried veggies and fruits. These make a fun stocking stuffer for an older baby or even toddler!
I have bought quite a few packs of these wool socks for my son since he was a tiny babe! They are warm and perfect for cold winter days.
A friend gave me some black and white flash cards when my son was a baby and he just loved them! I found that they can be a life-saver in a waiting room or long car ride for a fussy baby.
My aunt got this Little Green Frog book for my baby and both she and my toddler adore it! It’s a perfect size for tiny hands to hold and would fit in a stocking well. I think I’ve read it to my kids every single day since it was given to us.
My son has had one of these since he turned 6 months old. I’ve had to replace the lid once, but otherwise, it has held up. It definitely keeps water cool in a hot car and he was able to push the button to open it sometime around the time he turned 1. I actually just purchased this pink version for my baby girl.
Another item that also made it to my list of toddler stocking stuffer ideas, Thinkbaby sunscreen is a zinc oxide-based sunscreen that we’ve found to be super reliable and safe.
If you love to stuff your baby’s stocking with practical gifts, you can’t get more practical than a toothbrush and this one is adorable!
15. Nylon Hairbows
For little girls, I love these nylon headband bows! I’ve had some for my daughter since she was born and love that they do not leave an indentation in her head like many of them do.
16. Silicone Dino Popsicle Molds (or Unicorns!)
We have these same silicone popsicle molds in polar bears and my toddler loves them.
This and the skwish are probably my favorite baby toys. They are both pretty and fascinating for babies to hold.
Other Baby Stocking Stuffer Ideas
My favorite tradition is putting an orange in the toe of a stocking, but a banana or avocado would definitely work and be perfect for even a young baby! You can also fill their stocking with their baby soap or shampoo and other baby toiletry products. Things like bath toys, pacifiers, bottles, loveys, and teethers could also fill out your little one’s stocking.
