Our Gifts for 3-Year-Olds

The Gift Baskets and Little Book Gifts on this page have been carefully created to be the perfect gifts for 3-year-olds.

Whether you’re looking for a gift for a small human who’s turning three or for a three-year old who’s already powering their way through their fourth year on the planet, these book gifts make gift-giving easy and are sure to be a hit.

Why these books?

Chosen by a mum and teacher, the books included in these gift baskets and Little Book Gifts are really great books for 3-year-olds.

They tap in to the fact that, around the time of their third birthday, it’s as if a developmental switch has been flipped and language suddenly becomes hugely important to children. Three-year-olds still adore rhymes but now they also love new words – new words, big words, funny words, strange words and different words so we’ve put together a gift basket especially for three-year-olds that caters for this important developmental shift.

Three-year-olds are also becoming interested in longer stories with a clear plot and are often happy to sit and listen to adults read aloud for longer than they were able to do when they were only two. 

But three-year-olds are busy and sometimes a bit rough so the majority of these books are board books which will stand up to a lot of handling.
