Why do books make the best gifts for new babies?

If you’re looking for a new baby gift, you really can’t go past a thoughtfully-chosen collection of books.

Books are awesome gifts for small humans because when you give the gift of a book you’re also 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 babies’ earliest days. They’re lovely to read, beautifully illustrated and the language they use is exactly what little ones love listening to.
Most of our books are sturdy board books, perfect for small humans to read on their own, throw around the room – and even chew!

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

Reading aloud to our little people gives them a head start in so many ways and the books in our baby gift hampers 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!

Aunty to Thomas

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!
