Baby’s First Christmas: 50 Things to put in a Baby’s Stocking

Trying to come up with ideas to put into a stocking for a baby can be a bit tricky. They don’t need as much stuff as my older children do, but I also know my older two children will expect their brother to get a stocking at Christmas just like they do. When it comes to Christmas gifts in general, but I think this particularly applies to stocking fillers, I don’t like to buy anything just for the sake of it. I like to buy presents that I think will actually get used. So here are so useful ideas of things to put in a stocking for a baby’s first Christmas.

  1. Stacking cups
  2. Comforter / teddy
  3. Night light
  4. Socks
  5. Teether
  6. Arm bands
  7. Dribble bibs
  8. Bunting for their bedroom
  9. Sophie the Giraffe
  10. Pram books
  11. Bath books
  12. Bath toys
  13. ‘First Christmas’ bib
  14. ‘First Christmas’ tree bauble
  15. Moccasin slippers / booties
