Baby’s First Christmas Gift Basket

Looking for gift baskets for Christmas? Perhaps you’d like to start a family tradition of reading Christmas-themed books together in the lead up to Christmas.

Our Baby’s First Christmas Gift Basket is the perfect pre-Christmas gift for a new baby, a young child or for a family.

This lovely gift basket contains five special books for children about Christmas, including a copy of Clement C Moore’s famous story-poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. The books have been carefully chosen to be fun and engaging for parents to share with their child while also introducing little ones to some of the traditions which surround our celebration of Christmas.

There’s a book to appeal to every age group, including a fascinating and-hard-to-find book by Lord of the Rings author J R R Tolkein containing the illustrated letters Father Christmas wrote over many years to the Tolkein children. The illustrations in this book are gorgeous and it’s a wonderful book to share with children of all ages.

These books are a delight to read aloud to newborn babies and will be continue to be enjoyed by children as they grow.

Also included is a book for parents, Reading Magic, a fascinating book about why reading aloud to children from their very first days is so important.

A cuddly Santa toy is great for little hands to hold while listening to the stories.

The basket is designed to store the books so that they can be kept close at hand, either in your little one’s bedroom or in the family living area. This makes it easy for caregivers to reach for a story regularly throughout the day. There’s also space too add more books.

When baby can sit up – and later crawl – the basket can be kept on the floor to encourage baby to handle the books whenever he or she likes.
