It’s beginning to look a lot like…the best time of year to splurge on a few cute gifts for your baby this holiday season!

Although your babe may like the box and the wrapping paper more than the actual gift this year, big kids shouldn’t have all the fun. Baby stocking stuffers can be cute, of course, but can also be useful and practical. A few gifts can go a long way in a little one’s eyes and, let’s face it—nothing is cuter than watching your baby’s face light up while opening presents.

From pacifiers and teethers to bath toys and books, we’ve rounded up our favorite baby-friendly stocking stuffers that are sure to put a smile on your little one’s face this holiday season.

Soft + Soothing

What would your little one love more—a lovey or a pacifier? How about a lovey and a pacifier? This parent fave paci + plush all-in-one is not only easier for you to keep track of, but easy for your little one to hold and keep in thanks to the cuddly stuffed toy that’s (safely) attached. Here’s to more silent nights this holiday season!

Look and Learn

Newborns and younger babies are naturally drawn to black and white; bold, high-contrast images help to catch their attention and stimulate visual development, especially during those first few months. Each card in this sturdy, oversized set features a whimsical hand-painted black-and-white animal illustration on one side and corresponding name on the other. They’re perfect for tummy time, on-the-go entertainment or any time you need to grab baby’s attention.
