The Best Eco-friendly Baby Holiday Gift Ideas

In search of the perfect holiday present for the newest member of the family? We’d be remiss if we didn’t recommend The Eco-nomical Baby Guide first thing! But what if you have our masterpiece already, or you want to spend more than $13.95 on your baby’s gift? Here are some more eco-friendly choices:

First you might want to check out Joy’s baby splurge posts, in which she reveals the top three convertible high chairs and the best eco-friendly strollers. Looking to spend a little—or a lot—less this year? Perhaps your baby would enjoy one of the top ten baby board books this year. Goodnight Moon is always a classic!

Pat the Bunny is another popular baby board book

In this older post, we offer a whole slew of green gift ideas. Favorites from this list include the Melissa and Doug food groups set (which my daughter has played with weekly for the last two years), and the Monkey Foot Designs wet bag for parents to use with their cloth diapers.

We found a Melissa and Doug cutting fruit set at a garage sale for just $3. Audrey can play with it for hours!

Our Green Baby Guide’s green gift repository from 2008 has a few gems, such as Pedoodles shoes (so cute!) and our favorite baby accessory: Fuzzibunz  pocket diapers and Happy Heiny’s pocket diapers.

Pedoodles shoes are made from leather remnants

In search of a gift for the pregnant woman in your life? This post has some ideas for making a gift basket for a new or expecting mother. The eco-friendly Lassig diaper bag would make the perfect present.

Happy holiday shopping!


  1. I also strongly endorse Melissa and Doug brand toys! They have some of the best value toys out there in terms of price and quality. Their puzzles and wooden toys are consistent favorites with our two boys ages 5 and 3.

    They stretch young imaginations and best of all NO batteries required!

  2. Green Toys had quite the deal on Amazon last month. We picked out their tea set for Christmas and dump truck for my guys January second birthday.

  3. This year I bought so many “Green Toys My First Blocks” sets as a gift, they are always a hit.
