About Our Gifts for New Babies and Young Children

The Book Basket Company delivers beautiful gift baskets filled with carefully-curated selections of the very best books for babies and young children.
We have some wonderful newborn baby gift ideas and our book gift baskets make the best gifts for twin babies.
As well as being fantastic new baby gifts, our gift baskets also make wonderful baby shower gifts – for boys, girls and for when you’re not sure yet!

Why do books make the best gifts for new babies?

Books make the very best gifts for babies and young children because, when you give the gift of a book, you’re giving the gift of reading. And a love of reading is a gift that lasts for a lifetime. That’s why our gift baskets make such wonderful newborn baby gifts.

The books in our book baskets have been specially chosen to enhance cognitive development and to encourage a love of reading right from baby’s earliest days. They are lovely to read, beautifully illustrated and the language they use is so very much what little ones enjoy listening to. Most of the books we’ve selected are sturdy board books so babies and toddlers can be encouraged to handle them (and, yes, chew them!) whenever they like.

Our beautiful gift baskets are designed to be a cute and practical place to store the books, with room for more books as the child’s library grows.

Reading aloud to our little ones gives them a head start in so many ways and the books in our unique gift baskets are the perfect place to start!

Your gift baskets are such a great idea! My niece absolutely loves the First Library gift basket I sent for her birthday and I love that she’s enjoying snuggly read aloud times with her mum and dad.

Such a cool idea for a gift. The books in the Animal Friends gift basket are the ones our kids loved when they were younger and it’s so great to be able to gift them to our new niece.

Thanks for checking. Yes, I did want to order three gift baskets. Two are gifts and the other is for my 4-month-old. Someone bought us the First Library gift basket and I loved it so much I want to try the scientist one too!!

My sister has just had her first baby but she’s in lockdown in Melbourne and I can’t visit! I’m so excited to be able to send him his first books and can’t wait til I can read them to him myself. Your gift baskets are gorgeous. So glad I found them!
