If this will be your baby’s first Christmas, then it’s time to think about baby’s first Christmas stocking! Depending on the age of your child, you might think baby is too young to participate in this festivity, but it’s a great (and budget-friendly) way to introduce them to a fun Christmas tradition. We’re here to help with some of our favorite stocking-stuffer ideas.
- Booties & socks
‘Tis the season for keeping little feet warm. And our new cozy booties are the comfy-coziest you'll find! They offer natural luxury and feature a roll-down sock top to keep the booties where they belong, on baby’s feet! Socks are another great stocking-stuffer idea.
Winter is almost here, and if you live in a place that gets chilly weather, baby needs a good hat and cozy mittens. Ours are made from buttery soft organic cotton and come in timeless colors that match anything and everything.
- Bib & feeding tools
Baby can always use another bib, are we right? Ours are as functional as they are adorable, super-soft and easy to care for. Baby spoons or other feeding tools are also great for slipping into a stocking.
- Sippy cup
Has your baby started using a sippy cup yet? If not, now is a great time to get one. Pediatricians generally recommend that you can try a sippy cup when you child is around 6-to-9-months old. More info here on How to Introduce a Sippy Cup.
You probably have plenty of bodysuits for baby’s current age, but how about for a few months from now? Or what about long-sleeved bodysuits for winter? Check out our full selection of affordable, adorable, organic cotton bodysuits, and we’re sure you’ll find the perfect thing for your littlest elf.
Rattles are always great to have around (and they’re perfectly sized for stuffing into stockings). Even better when they are made of non-toxic cotton yarn. And we dare say you’ll have a tough time finding cuter knit baby rattles and toys than these.
- Stroller & bath toys
If a stroller were your main mode of transport, you'd need some entertainment too. Our stroller toys are made of smooth untreated wood and organic cotton, and they snap on for safekeeping. Bath toys are also a great idea for stockings.
