Opening stockings on Christmas morning is a classic tradition that’s fun for even the littlest members of your family. Here are 20 suggestions for baby-friendly stocking stuffers. Some are traditional, some are practical, and some are just for fun. Each will fit in that cute little stocking without breaking the bank.
Hint: Your little one’s favorite part of her stocking just might be the wrapping. If your baby is old enough to tear paper, choose a few of these gift ideas and wrap them in tissue paper to make them fun and easy to rip open.
