The Top 20 Baby Gifts Under $50

Fill bub’s stocking with the best little gifts with a little price tag. From bath toys to sensory play things these gifts are sure to give them a happy Christmas.


1. Tiny Activity Teether Toys Gift Set

This super cute set of three age level baby toys is the perfect gift for tiny ones who love to explore with their hands and mouth.

Created by Done by Deer each toy is designed to appeal to a certain stage and to stimulate baby motor skills and cognitive development:

The crocodile sensory rattle is for babies 2-4 months old when their motor skills are still quite erratic as it is very soft with tactile tabs and shapes for stimulation.

At 3-5 months the textured star teething rattle with its soft handle is ideal. Everything is explored via their mouths and the gums are starting to itch as teeth are starting to move through.

At 6 months old baby can explore with both hands and will enjoy testing the loops and the shaped handle of the circle toy.



2.  Avo Good Time

Get ready to guac and roll with Skip Hop’s adorable avocado stroller toy.

Featuring two halves that stick together, it’s easy for little hands to open and close.

The plush, textured exterior and cute felt details make this a fresh and fun way to entertain baby wherever you go.

Like all Skip Hop’s stroller toys, it has a built-in loop and ring so you can easily attach it to the bar of your stroller, infant carrier or other gear.

To operate just dunk it in water, then lift it out by the  handles to create a fun water umbrella effect.
