Have some new babies in your life and looking for some thoughtful gift ideas you can feel good about? Or maybe you have a crunchy mom friend who only gives her babe passive toys (me). These eco-friendly gift serve any budget and are anywhere from $100+ to just over $10.
Whether it’s for a birthday present, for the holidays, or just because those cheeks are too kissable, it can actually be hard know what to buy for a baby. A lot of times we buy toys for our kids, only to have them prefer to play with kitchen utensils instead. Or if you are like me, its can feel overwhelming to research every toy and make sure they are free of BPA, PVC, or phthalates. Sadly, many toys are made with PVC or other toxic materials and what is the first things babies do? Put them in their month.
I’ve carefully selected these items not only because of their quality but also because they are sure to make any baby smile with delight. I hope these non-toxic gift ideas provide your sweet baby lots of joy, too!
