gifts for all natural babyIf there's a baby on your list that's a little crunchy, you don't want to get a gift that offends. Luckily there are some great green finds out there for the tiniest tots on the list, from cute toys to some serious gear (Grandma, we're looking at you for that one).

So pick out your all natural gift for the baby that will surely grow up to be an eco-warrior, with impeccable style.



Bumble Birds Quilt

Every baby needs a quilt and this Etsy shop, Lil Bumpkin, makes each quilt by hand with 100% natural cotton designer fabrics. Being sensitive-baby conscious, she washes the fabric in Mrs. Meyers baby detergent. It was hard to choose from her eclectic and original patterns, but this Bumble Birds Quilt ($130) won me over with the unisex color scheme and smart, while still being adorable, design.

gifts for all natural babyGreen Toys Stacker

I've written about Green Toys before, and they are a must-have in your green baby's nursery. This stacker ($13.99) is made from 100% recycled milk jugs, dyed with soy inks. In addition to smart design, the stacker is free from BPA, phthalates, and PVC and proves that you don't have to spend big to go green.

gifts for all natural babyRitzy Nurser

You must be breastfeeding that eco-baby, yes? Taking it to go requires a nursing cover (if you're shy -- we support a woman's right to whip it out with pride) and you'll want a nursing cover that is as eco-conscious as you are. The Ritzy Nurser ($39.99) in bamboo is naturally anti-microbial and has a silky finish, making you the most stylish, socially-conscious mama in the nursing moms group.

A fabulous gift for any time of the year, aden + anais offers an organic cotton line of swaddles ($24.99) for your most sensitive baby with an eye to the eco. The starstruck design is perfect for the holidays. You and your baby will sleep well.

This all natural stroller sack made from shearling will keep your baby warm and toxin-free. If you've strolled your baby through the frigid winter streets, you know you need a stroller sack that protects, and SnugglePie is the Mercedes Benz of the sack set ($350). Yet another baby item that makes me ask, "Do they make this for adults?" And, "Who can I convince to buy this for me?"
