Welcome to The Book Basket Company


Are you looking for a gift for a newborn baby, a unique baby shower gift idea or perhaps a birthday gift for a young child?

Whatever the occasion, if you’re looking for a special gift for a baby or young child, you’ve come to the right place! 

The Book Basket Company delivers beautiful gift baskets filled with carefully-chosen selections of the very best books for babies and young children. We deliver Australia-wide.

Books are the perfect gift for little ones because, when you give the gift of a book, you’re giving the gift of reading and that’s a gift that lasts for a lifetime. 

The books in our book gift 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 need to hear and enjoy listening to. Most of the books we’ve selected are sturdy board books so babies and toddlers can be encouraged to handle them whenever they like. 

Our 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.

We recommend keeping the basket of books close at hand in the living area or family room so a book is always within reach for read-aloud sessions. As babies become mobile, having access to their own books throughout the day – to look at them, turn the pages and even to chew them! – helps to encourage a love of books.

Reading aloud to our little ones from their earliest days gives them a head start in so many ways and the books we’ve chosen for our unique gift baskets are the perfect place to start!
