Eco-Friendly Baby Gifts

Eco friendly baby gifts for the eco minded mama

My first recommendation when shopping for a baby shower is to buy a gift from the recipient’s registry… registries require so much thought and research to put together, give it the respect it deserves! If the registry has been picked over or you’re simply buying a gift for a friend (no shower necessary), then check out the below ideas for some fantastic eco-friendly baby gifts. 

Side note: If you’re an expecting mama currently working on your registry, you might find this minimalist baby registry checklist to be helpful!

Eco Friendly Baby Toys

Toy SubscriptionLovevery Toy Kit Subscription Boxes

  • I can speak from experience, we love Lovevery toy kits in our home. My parents gifted these to my son and the toys are not only good quality, they are attractive! As someone who tries to maintain a healthy sense of “adult” in our living room, it feels good to fill our toy corner with items that are as nice to look at as they are playful. Plus, each toy is learning and development focused so the child is always gaining new skills as they play. Can’t say enough good things about Lovevery!

  • This rattle is made in the USA using ethically harvested hardwoods. I like that it’s available in an assortment of subtle colors and can double as a teether. It’s also nice and small so it’s easy to pop into a diaper bag for an outing.

  • When my son was a baby, the only thing he liked to do was put toys in his mouth. I was always a little nervous about painted toys (my son got teeth early on and used them joyfully on his toys), but this one is made from untreated wood so swallowing paint is not a concern.

BlocksUncle Goose ABC Blocks

Uncle Goose Classic ABC Blocks - Made in The USA
  • 28 - 1.75 inch basswood cubes (44 mm)
  • Handcrafted from sustainable Michigan basswood
  • Printed with safe-to-touch inks
  • Made from wood sourced in Michigan. These blocks are fantastic because they will grow with a little one as they develop motor and language skills. I like that a baby can learn how to stack, while a toddler can learn how to identify the animal pictures, and a child can identify letters and start to spell words.

  • In my experience, new babies don’t appreciate books unless they’re filled with very simple illustrations in contrasting colors. These soft baby books are high contrast, soft, and easy to clean. I like that they’re made using bamboo fiber fabric. They are also great for popping into a diaper bag or hanging on a stroller.

Floor Play MatNook Lilypad Playmat

Nook Sleep LilyPad Play Mat (Misty) - Organic play mat for baby - Machine-washable - 40" round
  • Organic and non-toxic
  • Soft cushioned play mat for babies and toddlers
  • Easy to carry and machine-washable
  • Most baby play mats are relatively thin and unpadded. This play mat is made from non-toxic PETE fill so it’s squishy enough for babies to enjoy on top of hard floor surfaces like wood or tile. I also like that this play mat is easily transportable. We spent a number of weekends visiting in-laws during my son’s first months and designating a soft, safe place for him to roll around was always a bit of a project. Traveling with a play mat like this one would have been helpful!

Eco Friendly Baby Gear

Burp ClothsMilkbarn Organic Burp Cloths

Milkbarn Organic Cotton Burp Cloths (2 pack) (Blue lemon), 23"x23"
  • Two (2) Burp Cloths, each measuring approximately 23 inches x 23 inches.
  • These sweet burp cloths are made from GOTS certified organic cotton yarn. Babies are messy and I found that there was no such thing as having too many burp cloths on hand! We used them ALL the time, so they are sure to be a much appreciated gift.

Drool BibsWIPALO Baby Bibs

No products found.

  • Made from 100% organic cotton, these bibs are both practical and adorable. When my son was first born, we went through bibs constantly. I like that these are also thick and absorbent. 

Paci ClipsMadeline’s Box Braided Pacifier Clip

No products found.

  • Hand made in the USA, these pacifier clips are cute, washable, and practical! My son didn’t take to a pacifier until he was over 4 months old and we have been clipping one to him ever since. I also think that pacifier clips like these would be easy to DIY – they look like basic, braided stretchy cotton material. For my next babe, I might upcycle old t-shirt fabric and braid it into pacifier clips.

  • These come from GOTS certified yarn. We have a collection of muslin swaddles that we have used heavily since my son was born (he’s now 19 months old). They were great for swaddling him as a newborn, fantastic as an impromptu floor mat for tummy time, and we still use them in the stroller on walks and at bedtime.
If you are searching for eco-friendly baby gifts for your eco-friendly mama friend, look no further! Select from sustainably made baby toys that are safe for baby and made to last. Baby toys that can be composted or are made from recycled materials.
