Stocking Stuffers for Boys Age 0-2

The perfect size for little hands, these gift ideas are just right for little lads ages newborn to two years old.

To be honest, kids in this age range don’t quite understand the whole gift thing yet, let alone stocking stuffers, so as long as it’s huggable, chewable, and fun to play with they’ll love it. 

1. Sensory Blocks

These sensory blocks are so gosh darn cute, you’ll forget they’re helping Baby develop and learn!

They’re soft and squishy (like your boy’s tummy and thighs) and the neutral black, white, and brown colors blend in perfectly with nursery decor making them the perfect gift. 

2. My First Soft Book Set

Great for reading aloud, gumming to a wet pulp, and playing with! This My First Soft Book Set will be a hit for Baby.

4. Rubber Ducky

Make bathtime the best time with this adorable rubber ducky bath toy. It can float and swim and, of course, be a hat (or was that only my kids who put everything on their heads?).
