I am totally stumped for some reason. I need some suggestions! Especially for fun, random stuff that I might not be thinking of. So far the only thing I have is a bag of crayon rocks.

We are doing sippy cups, bath toys, socks, a colorful bib. It's all about the wrapping paper and not the gifts at this age so we are going with practical.

The traditional - oranges. Ds LOVES oranges so his stocking will have lots.

DD1 was born during Hanukkah. The following year (when she turned one) I got her a wooden draidel, too big to choke on. That's all I got her that year (although the grandparents stepped up with the loud and annoying toys. )

I'd imagine a 1yo would be perfectly happy with an empty stocking to play with, why waste money on stuffers?

Am I the only one doing a new toothbrush? Hmm.

For DD, I was also thinking of putting a small box of raisins, maybe some dress up jewelry, and a teeny beanie baby or small stuffed animal. Ooh, socks are a cute idea, too.

Oh yes! I did get toothbrushes for both boys. I need stocking stuffers because my 3.5yo will notice that his little brother did not get things and wonder what was up with Santa!

Socks are a great idea. He needs socks anyway. Some wooden animals would be cute, too. He could use another bib as well. Okay, the wheels are turning.

No way Babycakes! DD is getting a couple of toothbrushes! Along with some duckies that squirt water for the tub, bubbles, some small board-books, a new bath poof, a new harmonica which is her favorite instrument, and a small baby doll. She is 19 months though, so a bit older.

Last year for dd (11 months) I did bubble bath, a new toothbrush, a baby's first Christmas ornament (I do an ornament for each kid every year, 1st Christmas or not), fruit, a teething toy, and freeze dried fruit.

Very good ideas everyone!

I am also going to get my 15 mo old a cloth or plastic baby safe picture album and put pics of each family member in it. He will LOVE that!

Oh, this is awesome! We live far away from family, so this idea would be really great.

my daughter is one now and i'm having a really hard time thinking of stocking stuffers as well! i like the practical idea because reading some of these things, makes me feel a little "uncomfortable" actually. my daughter can't have stickers because she will eat them, or crayons because she doesn't even know how to color and just chews on things so that is definitely not a good idea for her. i like the socks, maybe a new toothbrush, bath toys, etc. she likes zippers so i'm not sure what i could do with that but practical things would be perfect! (: great ideas ladies!

The things I can remember putting in were a large bouncy ball, bubbles and small instruments, crayons, finger paints, stickers.  You could maybe try a penny whistle, maybe a toy or old mobile phone if your child always likes to take yours like mine does.  This year my son is 2 and I've put this thing called a giggle ball in which would suitable and a kazoo.

Yah last year DD has just turned 1 in Nov so we did practical.  She loved (still does) the organic baby food pouches so a few of those and she was a happy camper plus it was a quick breakfast! This year she's getting crayons (last year she would have eaten them) and piggy paint non toxic nail polish, definitely more of the fun stuff, but probably a pouch or two again!
