Baby gifts are always fun to receive, both for the baby and the mother!
What’s better than that is receiving gifts that are organic and healthy for the baby’s development.
Over the years, I’ve given and received a bunch of gifts from fellow parents and decided to help anyone who is stumped on what to get for their own or someone else’s baby.
I’ve narrowed down a bunch of brands that make great gifts that are SAFE for babies for your next baby shower or birthday party!
Best Organic Baby Gifts, Brands, and Toys
Once you have an idea of what to get as a gift, you can go ahead and look for good options.
“But there’s so much research to do!”
Don’t worry! Here’s a compiled list of the best organic baby product brands.
All of these brands sell great gifts to make your friends and their babies overflowing with happiness!
#1 Burt’s Bees Baby
#1 Burt’s Bees Baby
Burt’s Bees isn’t just great for organic lip balm and natural face wash — they also sell great organic baby products!
This brand is one of my favorites to give to fellow mothers as they bless the baby with the SAFEST and COMFIEST organic clothes and pajamas.
But wait! There’s more! They also offer blankets, burp cloths, bibs, and crib sheets; the whole shebang!
Not to mention, the bright yellow theme of Burt’s Bees Baby reminds us of happiness and feel-good vibes, so why wouldn’t you get this, right?!
The best part? It’s extremely affordable at around $9-$33!
However, most of their selection is catered to newborns and toddlers only, so if you need a gift for an older kid, best to look elsewhere.
#2 Hanna Andersson
Bouncing off of the cozy goodness that is Burt’s Bees Baby, I have Hanna Anderson.
Hanna Andersson features stylish organic children’s clothing. They use 100% organic and OEKO TEX certified Pima cotton.
Any parent would be ecstatic to receive 100% certified organic cotton clothes. I know I would.
It will bring them a lot of peace of mind and their baby the ULTIMATE COMFORT.
From sweaters to sleepwear, to socks and bibs, Hanna Anderson is one of my go-to’s when I need some new baby clothes.
Their prices range from $10 to $80. This is a great gift option and has a wide range for all budgets.
However, this brand is a bit more expensive than Burt’s Bees Baby, but that’s the only thing I can complain about.
I am forever grateful to have received Boody during my baby shower!
Boody is best for their sustainable bamboo onesies. They have a wonderful collection of stripes and pastel clothing!
So if you love those designs, then definitely consider Boody.
Their collection is made out of viscose derived from organic bamboo, which is SUPER soft on my little one’s skin.
My kid was definitely happy and slept like a rock!
Other than cute onesies, they also have tops, bottoms, socks, wraps, blankets, and accessories. Their prices range from $10.95 to $34.95, making it a great gift for something relatively affordable.
I just wish it wasn’t so thin. It may not be the most comfortable for bigger babies.
If you’re looking to support a good cause, Pact is a great brand that helps you do that.
Pact is a great company that practices and embodies the awareness of the dangers of environmental toxins.
They also are committed to raising awareness on sweatshops, child labor, and debt slaveries in the clothing industry.
As a parent who always emphasizes the importance of safe, organic, ethically-made clothing, I was pleasantly surprised to see a brand whose views are in line with mine.
Talk about social responsibility, right?!
I gifted a friend of mine some of Pact’s non-GMO organic bodysuits because I knew her baby will have the best sleep!
You not only make the babies who wear this happy, but you also help the workers be able to take care of their own babies with their living wages!
However, you might have to size up more than you’d like as their sizes come quite small.
#5 Beya Made
I personally love Beya Made’s clothes because they do not enforce gender stereotypes.
This brand makes gender-neutral clothing for babies. Stylish for both baby girls and baby boys!
They know that babies grow into toddlers quickly, so their clothing is meant to be grown into and not out of.
Their product range is simple, consisting of rompers, tops, and pants. A baby in their clothing is just so cute!
We definitely need MORE gender-neutral clothing, especially for babies! So this is definitely a step up in society.
#6 Touched By Nature
Touched By Nature makes a wide variety of baby clothing, sure to make any little one happy.
They offer adorable and organic clothing, which is best for the health and comfort of the baby.
You can MULTIPLE choices of what to give as a gift to someone else.
Their products range from layettes, bodysuits, dresses, tops, bottoms, crib sheets that can fit your crib mattresses, and accessories.
All items are great to have stocked in your home!
Their uber-cute apparel is sure to make any baby look EXTREMELY ADORABLE!
What sells it for me is they ship internationally, making this brand accessible to everyone!
I’m glad that they come in affordable prices as well! Take note, however, that some sizes may run big.
#7 Monica + Andy
If you want to stray away from the usual everyday baby clothes, Monica + Andy offers a much BROADER range of products.
You can find baby accessories, apparel, outerwear, swimsuits, and bundles!
I also received these during my baby’s first birthday, and I was glad that I didn’t have to buy these extras myself!
They’re especially great with curated outfit collections.
What a wide range of baby wear!
This company offers clothing made of GOTS certified organic cotton fabric. You can be sure that your baby will feel only the SOFTEST FABRICS.
Be warned that the clothes may shrink after washing, so I recommend sizing up.
#8 Art & Eden
If you’re looking for a little more style, Art & Eden is the brand to go! You will absolutely LOVE their beautifully patterned clothes.
I sure do!
Their wide selection of hoodies, dresses, tops, and bottoms will make your baby look like the snazziest kid in town.
I know I can trust this brand because their clothes are made in fair and safe working conditions.
All pieces contain low-impact dyes and have GOTS certified organic cotton fabric. Your baby is guaranteed to be comfortable and safe in their clothing!
Take note, though, that with these high-quality clothes comes a high price tag.
#9 Finn + Emma
Of course, no baby gifts would be complete without some toys! Finn + Emma makes the best hand-knit artisan-made toys and stuffed animals!
My baby and I are grateful for the clothes, but sometimes it’s nice to receive something that he can play with as well!
Other than toys, they also sell apparel, accessories, and gear. Your baby is sure to appreciate these!
They ship internationally, which is great for those living outside the US! And for what they sell, their prices are relatively affordable, ranging from $15 to $36.
I also appreciate that they only use 100% organic cotton, eco-friendly dyes, and all-natural wood for tier toys.
No harmful chemicals and toxic materials here!
My baby’s favorite is their knit stuffed animals! They can definitely SPARK the imagination of your baby.
In fact, a big part of the cognitive development of your baby includes playing with toys!
If your little one finds they want their knit toy with them all the time, it’s also easy to store in a diaper bag for playtime on the go!
I will admit that their toys do feel a little cheap, so I suggest looking elsewhere for something that feels more premium.
#10 Kate Quinn
Kate Quinn has the best basics collection. They sell layettes, tops, bottoms, dresses, socks, and accessories.
I would definitely recommend this brand for moms looking to save as much money as they can.
They also ship internationally and have an average price range of $16 to $38, making them affordable and stylish.
They even go AS LOW AS $3 for their adorable hats for babies!
Kate Quinn makes apparel for both babies and parents with organic cotton, bamboo, and Modal from Beech trees.
I swear their collections are absolutely gorgeous to look at, and even more for your baby to wear!
Part of what makes them great is their ethics. They partner with smaller factories in India, Africa, and China to ensure safe and fair working conditions.
And no, not all clothing made in China is bad! As long as you do your research and find trusted factories, you should be good!
Of course, some parents would rather not want clothes made in China, so I suggest looking elsewhere.
Baby MORI has the CUTEST baby outfits! They sell adorable apparel, sleepwear, and accessories!
They have a wide price range, going from $11 up to $92. So whatever budget you have, you can find your new baby gift here.
Of course, given the price may reach almost $100, I recommend other brands if you’re looking to save.
Their clothing is made from a mix of 30 percent organic cotton and 70 percent natural bamboo, which gives it the softest feel.
This might just be the answer to helping your baby sleep soundly and comfortably!
I especially like the multi-packs and sets, because this way you can stock up your nursery easily.
Imagine receiving a multi-pack as a gift for your child. I’d want to HUG whoever gave it!
#12 Ade + Ayo
If you are really looking to wow someone with something unique, look no further than Ade + Ayo.
Ade + Ayo make the best African-inspired pieces! They make one-pieces, tops, bottoms, hair bands, bonnets, and bibs.
Their designs are basics that fully and thoughtfully celebrate the African culture — helping babies explore culture through style!
Each piece is made with GOTS organic cotton, so don’t worry about any harmful chemicals and toxic materials.
Rest assured, all the production of their clothing is safe, even the ones made in China!
To top it all off, they GIVE BACK by providing education initiatives in the southern half of the African continent.
I cannot emphasize the INCREDIBLE price range enough! From $5 to $18.50 you’re sure to find the best gift to fit in your budget.
However, I would recommend sizing just in case it runs small.
#13 Sprout San Francisco
Eventually, you will run out of ideas on what to give, which was the case for me before.
That is, until I discovered Sprout San Francisco. You get the usual clothes and toys, which are already great.
But I was floored when I saw the feeding accessories, car seats and strollers, and furniture!
That’s how I knew that this was the PERFECT GIFT for any parent! Sprout has one of the most DIVERSE ranges of organic baby products.
They manufacture in various places, including China, USA, Canada, Egypt, and many more!
Although China has a bad reputation, I guarantee that even their toys made in China are ethically made and of high quality.
All their items are visually stunning and unique. Their baby toys would make a great addition to any nursery!
The cherry on top for me is their materials used are natural, organic, and free from toxins so your baby can stay healthy and safe!
Their toys would be best for older kids, as they are more likely to appreciate them than newborns.
If a wood toy is not your style, you can also get soft toys for your baby. These would be way better for younger kids.
They also have toys that can attach to a stroller or car seat, making them harder to lose!
Of course, all these goodies come at a high price, so budget wisely if you really want to give these as a gift.
Let’s end this list with some arts and crafts!
Some babies love to do arts and crafts, so Honeysticks is probably the BEST option to consider!
Even if they aren’t artsy, all kids are sure to appreciate an organic set of crayons! These crayons are MUST HAVES for your home!
My kids love art materials. In fact, they would sometimes choose it over a different toy!
Honeysticks makes crayons from 100 percent PURE New Zealand beeswax, which is a safer option for your baby.
They’re one of the only, if not THE ONLY, company that makes crayons WITHOUT ANY paraffin wax and cheap fillers.
In case you’re not aware, beeswax is the primary ingredient in lip balm, making it safe even if your baby decides to put them in their mouth.
The crayons are easy to hold and hard to break, thanks to their unique chubby shape.
Everything used to package the crayons are reusable, recyclable, or biodegradable — making them a great environmentally friendly option!
These would be great as a birthday party activity for your little ones, too! Many kids love coloring, and parents will definitely appreciate how safe they are.
A pack of original Honeysticks crayons is only $19.99, which in our opinion, makes a great gift on its own!
They have free shipping to New Zealand and Australia for all orders over $75, so if you live there, you’re in luck!
I must note that these crayons are on the expensive side compared to other brands.
What Makes a Good Baby Gift?
If you’re the parent, you might want to get something special for your new baby, like non-toxic toys. Especially since clothing, diapers, and food are normal.
On the other hand, if you’re a friend, you may want to get a gift that parents would appreciate.
But if you’re not sure about sizing, a safe thing to get are non-toxic toys. If you can afford it, items for their nursery are a great idea, too!
You can also get essentials, like a non-toxic diaper baby bag or things to include in one. We’re sure parents appreciate diapers or bibs and burping cloths.
As a parent with a drooly baby, more bibs and burp cloths are always welcome!
While practical gifts may be more appreciated by the parents than a toy, stuffed/plush toys and other playthings still make great presents!
Don’t overlook the importance of play time!
Most importantly, it’s the THOUGHT that counts.
This doesn’t mean anything you get would be a good gift. This means that you should put sincere thought into what gift you get.
Babies don’t tend to be picky with what they get, but parents are. I admit.
Lastly, consider the age group of the baby. Whether they’re a newborn baby or a toddler would GREATLY CHANGE what an APPROPRIATE gift would be.
Benefits of Organic Baby Gifts
It’s better to go organic for many reasons, including for baby gifts.
Here are a few reasons why organic baby gifts are the better choice. I guarantee that the receiver of the gift will appreciate it 10x more!
Safer for the Baby
Organic baby gifts, clothes specifically, are gentler and safer for the baby’s sensitive skin.
Clothes made out of cotton or wool help make the baby feel more comfortable and prevent unwanted skin irritations and rashes.
Any organic material is better for the environment!
Organic baby gifts support these practices by cutting down on waste and toxic materials that negatively impact the baby’s health.
Supports Ethical Work Practices and Organic Farming
You may have noticed that a lot of the brands I mentioned make use of ethical working practices.
That’s because organic gifts are made with extra care for farmers who grow sustainable materials.
Instead of turning to gifts that are chemically or inorganically made, it is better to go all-natural for the sake of the producer and receiver.
Healthy and Natural Materials
All gifts I listed above are made from organic materials, which are better for the baby in the long run.
You don’t want any gift that is riddled with chemicals or may cause health issues!
Durable and Will Last Longer
No one wants a gift that will deteriorate after a few uses.
Hence, baby gifts made from organic materials will likely last longer and withstand wear and tear better.
Should My Baby Wear Organic Clothes?
Organic baby clothing is NOT just a trend. There’s a scientific basis for why we should be extra careful about what we expose babies to.
Babies are known to have very sensitive skin. Even more sensitive than most adults!
According to Gervaise Gerstner, MD, a New York dermatologist:
“Babies have a higher ratio of skin surface area to body volume, which means they absorb chemicals easier. Their skin is 30 percent thinner than adults, too.”
This means that babies are more open to absorbing harmful additives that are often found in large-scale commercially produced fabrics that aren’t organic.
The U.S. has strict requirements on what can be called organic. The National Organic Program says it must be 95-percent free of chemicals and pesticides.
But what EXACTLY is bad about chemicals and pesticides?
“Some chemicals, such as orthophosphates, endosulfan, and methamidophos can cause skin irritation and rashes”…”high doses of these chemicals are thought to cause endocrine disruption,” – Dr. Gerstner
The effect of ethers in mass-produced clothing with early puberty onset, hormonal disorders, and other issues was demonstrated in a study published in 2014.
Anyways, why would you want to welcome chemicals and toxins in your home if they can be avoided?
Just be sure to avoid cheap and unethically made baby products from untrusted factories in China. But take note not all China-made items are bad. Do your research!
In fact, the list earlier features many made-in-China toys and clothing.
So next time you buy a present for a little one, reach for organic and non-toxic toys to keep them safe!
Use the recommendations from the previous sections to be sure you get a safe gift.
