I’ve posted stocking stuffers for men under $10 and stocking stuffers for women under $10, but now I think it’s time we go a little bit younger and post some stocking stuffers for babies under $10, too.
When I wrote the original posts, years ago, I didn’t yet have a child so I didn’t realize how hard it can be to find little gift items that are stocking-worthy. In fact, my son is almost two but this is the first year I’m putting together a stocking for him. (Luckily, he’ll never remember that he didn’t get one last year!) Stocking stuffers for babies need not be fancy, but they can certainly be hard to find… especially if you are on a budget!
The funny thing I found most funny when putting together this list of stocking stuffers for babies is that the toy and baby industries are huge, and I generally consider baby items to be pretty affordable, but most of the popular affordable items are in the $12-$15 range. That must be a soft spot for parents! Gifts under $10 that aren’t complete junk, though? You’re generally going to have to dig a little deeper!
I put together this list envisioning it as a catch-all for babies until they reach the age of three or so. Of course, there are some huge developmental differences between newborns and three-year-olds, so please use your own judgment. I also always recommend reading reviews when it comes to items for kids as they can provide invaluable insight!
