Non Toxic Christmas Gift Ideas for Toddlers

baby christmas tree
In this post I will cover my Top, under $30, Non Toxic Christmas Gift Ideas for Toddlers. 
As a natural minded family, we try to avoid plastic toys as much as possible. We prefer wood most of all. 
In this post I will include our favorite wooden building blocks, a bath toy our little one uses and also a wooden train and musical eggs we recommend.
And the best part is, they are all available on amazon, so you don’t even have to leave the couch. Get comfy, get some coffee and get the Christmas shopping done early!
The first of the 30 products will be the Melissa & Doug Pounding Bench Wooden Toy

We like it because instead of banging pots and pans together, he can concentrate on working on his coordination while using the provided hammer.

The next product i want to talk about is this cute apple! It’s called the Coogam Wooden Lacing Apple Threading Toy. It’s super cute and amazing in supporting the development of hand-eye coordination.

For only $8.99 it’s an amazing deal, also on amazon.


Another great toy is the Manhatan Toy Skwish Classic Rattle and Teether Grasping Activity Toy for around $15 on amazon, depending on which version you buy. 

I believe Target may carry this too, I could swear I’ve seen it in store before.

Another favorite of ours is the Bettroom Geometric Puzzle Toy, also made of wood. 

This really helps with developing the fine motor skills as well as hand-eye coordination.

This next product comes with 12 shape blocks.
It is the GEMEM Shape Sorter!

 A great toy to develop shape recognition skills in your toddler. Available on amazon for around $20.

The next product, and we already have, use and love it, is the Hape Pound and Tap Bench with slide out Xylophone.

This toy is definitely a Must Have in our house, even my 8 year old plays with it with his little brother.

Another favorite of ours, since the little guy likes to imitate brother during home school time, are the Honeysticks 100% Beeswax, all natural Crayons for just under $23 on amazon.

You’d be amazed how well the little ones can handle these, develop coordination and learn how to hold them and try to color.

To go along with the crayons above, we also really like these Crayon Rocks in 16 colors for just $11 on amazon.

Super easy to grip and develop grip strength for the little ones.

For building, we prefer untreated wooden blocks like these. 100 piece Wood Building Block Set for $29.95 on amazon. 

What’s not to love about simple, plain wood building blocks. Didn’t we all grow up with a set of these?


We truly do use and love these toys and please know that I would not recommend anything I would not get my own little guy for Christmas this year! Not to mention we already own a few of the toys I recommend here.

Let’s look at the next toys, available on for under $30 for the toddler in your life.

Following is another favorite on the list is the Wooden Activity Play Cube, of course on amazon.

This is great in helping them stand more easily and be in control of their movements

Next on the list is a cute little colorful train.The Bimi Boo Wooden Stacking Train Set of 23 pieces for only $14.99. 

Because which little one doesn’t need a train set??

Another thing we like, if we’re not making our own, is the Veggie Baby Finger Paints, which are also organic and vegan. You get 5 colors for just $24.98.

There’s nothing better than messy little faces, am I right?

Of course this list wouldn’t be complete without including a bath time toy of some sort. We love the Pure Natural Rubber Bath Toy in the Whale shape, because it does not have any holes and therefore won’t grow mildew on the inside.

It is a little sum at $13.49 but we believe it’s totally worth it.

And of course Music has to be incorporated here as well. We can’t get enough of music eggs! We especially love the Shumee Organic Set of 2 Wooden Egg Shakers.

They are great to discover sounds and to develop motor skills,.

The next featured product is a Wooden Alphabet Puzzle.
Because educational puzzles are must haves!
Have a boy that likes cars? What about a wooden Ramp Race?
I mean, which little boy can live without a ramp race toy?
Need a toy to encourage walking? How about the Award Winning Hape Walk-A-long Snail Pull Toy?

Be honest, isn’t it adorable? And it’s only $29.99 So just within our budget!

Something for the a little younger ones are these B. Toys One Two Squeeze Baby Blocks for $14.99.

These are adorable and also available at your local Target!

And lastly, this list wouldn’t be complete without a Lewo Wooden Rainbow Stacking Game Educational Toy for $14.99.

Who did NOT have one like this or similar growing up? This was a must have in my child hood!

This should cover all the bases. From Stacking to building to pulling and coloring, this list has a little bit of all of it. You’re guaranteed to find something you like on my list.

Don’t exactly find what you are looking for? Let me know and I’ll make sure to add it to the list later on!

Enjoy my ideas and Happy Shopping!

  1. These are great ideas! I feel like my 7 month old is bored with his baby toys already so I may look into some of these!

  2. Great list! And I’m speaking from experience. My daughter and niece have loved several of the toys on your list. Many of them are still around making for fun play sessions.

  3. Non-toxic is big in our house as well. We have the EverEarth ramp, the Manhattan Skwish Rattle, a wooden lacing toy, and a rainbow stacker. They’ve all been big hits! We love anything by Plan Toys and Bannor Toys as well. 🙂
