Baby’s first Christmas is such a special and sentimental time for every new parent. The first Christmas as an extended family!
This is a time when we, as parents, start introducing our little new baby to beautiful Christmas traditions, such as taking a photo with Santa, making some Christmas ornaments, or getting your baby their very first Christmas stocking to fill with a lot of little presents. Your baby might only have the photos you take to remember these special moments, but you will definitely enjoy them and always hold them close to your heart.
If you are looking for some of the best stocking ideas for babies to celebrate this Christmas, you’ve come to the right place! I have rounded up here some the absolute cutest Christmas stockings for babies, including Christmas stockings specific for baby boys or baby girls, Christmas stocking for infants and baby stockings that can be personalized with your baby’s name and/or photo.
The beautiful thing is that most of these baby stockings below can also be re-used as your baby gets older, so that you can keep remembering your baby’s first Christmas as the years go by.
The Cutest Christmas Stocking for Baby’s First Christmas
Here’s the list of stocking ideas for babies. You will find gender neutral stockings first, followed by ideas for baby girls and then baby boys, and personalized baby stockings at the end.
1) Peanuts Stocking and Hat Set
This peanuts stocking and hat set is one of my favorites and it will make it the perfect keepsake for the Christmas holidays. It includes a hat (for babies 0-12 months) together with a very cute stocking featuring Peanut and the words “My First Christmas” embroidered on both the stocking and hat.
The stocking is made of polyester and it’s about 12″ tall.
2) Giraffe Baby’s First Christmas Stocking
I also love the design of this giraffe Christmas stocking, with the feet and tail hanging from the bottom. While you might think this is more of a baby boy stocking, I think it would be perfect for either a boy or a girl. I actually find this to be especially cute as a Christmas stocking for newborns.
It is made of felt fabric materials and it’s quite tall, measuring 22″ diagonally, meaning you can fill it with a lot of stocking stuffer for babies.
3) Mini crochet Christmas stockings
These very cute mini crochet stockings would make perfect Christmas stockings for infants, if you’ve had your baby very close to Christmas.
They are made with 100% acrylic yarn and are only 10″ tall. You can choose one of the following colors: crimson red, soft sage or white winter. However, if you contact the seller, she’s open to making a stocking for you of a different color.
One thing to be mindful with this item is the turnaround time: they are made as orders come through and you could be waiting up to 6 weeks before receiving them. So, make sure you place your order in time if you want it to be delivered for Christmas!
4) Bear Baby Stocking
I just love this incredibly detailed stocking with bear on top: it is all hand embroidered and the design is particularly cute. The downside is that it is more expensive compared to other stockings: you pay for the quality and detail.
This baby stocking can be personalized with your baby’s name if you wish, and it’s 18″ tall.
5) Rainbow Baby Christmas Stocking
Here’s another super cute little baby stocking, perfect for baby’s first Christmas if you have an infant or newborn during the holiday season. It is a little bit bigger than what you’d think, measuring 15″ high.
This rainbow baby stocking is made with acrylic yarn and features a rainbow on top with a wooden beaded tassel. You can also choose whichever color you want when you place the order.
6) Velvet Stocking
If you prefer something more simple and plain, yet still very beautiful, this velvet stocking is for you. It’s made with white velveteen and baby pink sequins on top and it measures approximately 21″, so it’s quite big.
You have a few choices when customizing this baby stocking:
- You can choose between left or right facing stockings.
- You can choose the embellishment of your choice: the photo below shows a little heart, but you can actually choose amongst 44 different embellishments.
- You can add a tag with your child’s name at an extra cost, and you can choose the font for the name. Just be mindful that the turnaround for the extra tag is approximately 2 weeks, as they sent it to professional embroiderers for monogramming.
7) Knitted Reindeer Stocking
This knitted reindeer stocking from thetot.com just makes me smile when I look at it! It is knitted from 100% organic cotton and has a minimalist reindeer design with a red pom pom nose.
It is approximately 24.8″ tall.
8) Newborn Baby Christmas Stocking Sleeping Bag
Want to go the extra mile and do something super special for your baby’s first Christmas? Then check out this newborn baby Christmas stocking,, that you can actually use as a sleeping bag for your baby and take the cutest Christmas baby photos. Once you’ve finished with your photos, you can then hang it as a normal stocking on the wall.
The stocking also includes a hand-knitted crochet hat to put on your baby’s head and, together with the stocking, the set fits babies that are 0-3 months old. The back of the stocking opens up though, so you can also fit a 3 months old who’s a bit bigger than the average.
The baby stocking is 18″ long and 10″ wide.
Christmas Stockings for Baby Girl
9) Baby Girl Stocking for Baby’s First Christmas
This stocking with a removable soft toy and picture frame is one of the cutest Christmas stockings for baby girl. You can personalize it with your baby’s picture and the little monkey toy is just adorable (plus you can remove it and hung it as an ornament).
This stocking is made of felt and knit fabric and it measures 19″.
10) Elf Baby Girl Christmas Stocking
This elf Christmas stocking is also very cute and another great idea if you are looking for a baby girls first Christmas stocking (and if you love elves!). You can personalize it with your baby’s name and you have the choice between quite a few different fonts.
It is made of polyester and it’s also 19″ long.
11) Sugar Plum Ballerina Christmas Stocking
This ballerina baby stocking combines traditional charm with a little sweet ballerina character and could be perfect if you prefer something without such bright colors. It can also be personalized with your baby’s name on top and you can choose your favorite font.
The baby stocking is made of polyester linen and the dress and legs hang down in 3D. It measures 21″, so it is quite big.
12) Retro-Style Baby Christmas Stocking
Last but not least for these baby stockings for baby girls, check out this beautiful retro-style Christmas stocking, featuring brightly-colored vintage ornaments in blue, pink and green on a gray, Christmas tree background.
The cuff color can be personalized to be either white or pink, and the personalized text is available in 4 different fonts (you don’t have to have the text though) .
It is handmade with 100% quilt-weight cotton and it measures 18″ long. Because it is handmade, the pattern placement may vary.

Personalized Baby Stockings
Here’s other gender neutral personalized baby stockings for baby’s first Christmas.
17) Personalized Embroidered Baby Christmas Stockings
These unique personalized baby Christmas stockings are one of my favorites as well. I just absolutely love the look, quite different from all the other type of stockings, and the penguin with the Santa hat is the cutest.
You can choose amongst four different designs: reindeer, snowman, penguin or Santa. And you can also choose the thread color for the name.
This baby stocking is 15.7″ long. Plus, be aware that it comes from Cyprus, so make sure to order in time and allow enough time for shipment if you are ordering from the US.
18) Disney Mickey Mouse Baby Stocking
If you are a big fan of Disney characters, Mickey Mouse in particular, you will enjoy this Disney Mickey Mouse baby stocking with your baby’s name on it.
It is made of polyester and measures 14.8″ long, so it is amongst the smallest stockings listed here.
19) Luxury Thick Grey Baby Stocking
This luxury thick grey stocking comes in three different designs (teddy, penguin or reindeer), similarly to the personalized Christmas stockings coming from Cyprus above. This, however, is shipped from the United Kingdom.
I really like the look, a bit more sophisticated compared to the other baby stockings listed above.
It is 15.7″ long and you can choose the color of the name.
20) Luxury Red Baby Stocking
This red baby stocking won my heart with the cute fawn design on it and baby’s name on top. You can actually personalize both the name and the writing at the bottom (that says “my 1st Christmas” in the photo) with this baby stocking, as long as the name is not longer than 12 characters and the line of text is a maximum of 16.
It is made of 100% polyester and it’s 18.5″ long. It is also being dispatcher from the United Kingdom, so make sure to order in time.
21) Customizable Baby Stocking
Here’s another personalized baby stocking where you can choose amongst different designs. You could even get a different design for each member of the family, not just for baby!
I don’t particularly love all of these designs. Santa, for example, is not one of my favorites. But I really like the bear.
You can choose the color and font of the name and, if you want to buy it as a gift, a handwritten gift card is also available at no additional cost.
It is made of 100% polyester fleece and it’s 15″ long.

The material and size are also different. This is made of 100% polyester and measures 18″ long.
23) Handmade Baby Elephant Christmas Stocking
This handmade Christmas stocking is probably not one of the cutest baby stockings overall, but I just love the little elephant with the Christmas tree on it. It is handmade and can be done in either blue for boys or pink for girls. You can also personalize the font of your baby’s name.
It is made from felt material and is lined with cotton fabric. The size is 17″ long.

25) FA La La Friends Stockings
Finally, these super cute stockings are quite unique, with a different look from the traditional stockings. You can actually choose between four different designs: llama, dinosaur, sloth or unicorn.
