Stocking Stuffers: Holiday Gift Guide
Stocking Stuffers always seem to end up last on the holiday shopping list each year. While retailers try to temp you in their checkout lines with grab-and-go trinkets on your way out the door, we have come up with a list of fun, useful and quality stocking stuffers for everyone on your list most under $25. This year, surprise your family with stocking stuffers they will love that will actually stand the test of time.

Sanilite UV Sanitizer by Baby’s Journey
UV light kills up to 99% of germs, bacteria, viruses, and allergens. This hand sanitizer by Baby’s Journeys is the perfect size to keep with you at all times so you can de-germ any surface at home or away. We love using this on those questionable restaurant high chairs and books that slipped out of tiny fingers and onto dirty floors. This is also the perfect gift for the eco-friendly family. Gone are the days of using countless disposable wipes to clean surfaces off. Now a UV light can clean without the waste.

Musical Toy Santa from Mamas & Papas
We adore this versatile Musical Santa Toy from Mamas & Papas. It will quickly put you and your family in the holiday spirit, and is the ideal stocking stuffer for those difficult-to-buy-for-infants. You’re obviously not going to be stuffing their stockings with festive candy, so why not add in a few small plush toys that will fill up the stocking so it isn’t hanging there empty?
The Musical Toy Santa features a c-ring that is ideal for hanging on an infant carrier or attaching to a stroller. When you squeeze his jolly belly, your baby will be serenaded to the gentle tune of “Jingle Bells.” This Christmas musical toy is sure to entertain your baby with it’s musical feature, fun shape and soft plush body.
Pacifier Holder by PullyPalz
Are you sick and tired of having to retrieve your little one’s pacifier from the floor while you’re also trying to cook dinner, or chase around his older sibling? With PullyPalz, your little one will always have a pacifier within reach, because it’s the first ever baby toy that actually helps your child retrieve his own pacifier. Your child will love the fun cartoon character, as well as figuring out developmental aspects such as cause and effect, hand/eye coordination, and right brain/left brain coordination.
Whether you choose to attach the PullyPalz character to your child’s vibrating seat or the infant seat while you are out for an afternoon stroll, the adjustable handle will adapt to fit on virtually anything. There will always be a pacifier hangin’ around with your infant’s new favorite toy: the PullyPalz.
Plush Pacifiers by WubbaNub
WubbaNub pacifiers are plush animals attached to a Soothie pacifier. They are perfect for little hands, and make it easier for baby to keep the pacifier in his mouth or guide it back in. For babies that love to suck, they also provides a great incentive for working on hand coordination and motor skills!
The plush animals are not only adorable but have some weight to them to help keep the pacifier in or near baby’s mouth. We love the bright red color of the plush puppy and plush dragon, which are great choices because red is one of the colors babies perceive best once color vision develops. The Soothie pacifier is also medical grade silicone and free of BPA and phthalates.
Holiday Pacifiers by MAM
Designed by pediatric dentists and orthodontists, BPA free and made with ultra-soft silicone or latex nipples, moms can be confident they’re providing their baby with the absolute best product to suit their comfort needs with MAM pacifiers.
