We received your Baby’s First Library Gift Basket when our daughter was born and it was my favourite gift. It was so beautifully presented and the books themselves are just gorgeous. A great idea for a gift!
Goodnight Moon and Guess How Much I Love You were huge favourites in our house when my children were small so I was really excited to find this gift basket. Now my brother’s reading those same books to his twins. A great gift – he and his wife loved it!
Reading is so important and such a joy and I’m all for starting to read aloud as early as possible. Your gift baskets are just beautiful and are always received with lots of wows! I’ve just ordered my fourth, this time for a new little one-year-old.
Our Bedtime Gift Basket contains six of the very best bedtime books for babies which are perfect to share with newborn babies and with little ones up to the age of four.
It makes a wonderful new baby gift, baby shower gift or birthday gift for a beloved grandchild or friend.
The bedtime stories in our Bedtime Gift Basket have been carefully chosen to enhance the development of young brains by providing a variety of listening experiences. The emphasis is on the rhyme and rhythmic language which babies and small children love so much and which is so important for stimulating their love of language and their awareness of how language works.
The basket of books is designed to be kept close at hand to allow easy access to the books for little ones and to encourage impromptu read-aloud sessions.
Our Bedtime Gift Basket contains the following books:
- Time for Bed: a gentle, rhyming story about baby animals settling down to sleep with their parents;
- Guess How Much I Love You: Little Nutbrown Hare's father tells him how much he loves him as he gets ready for bed;
- Goodnight Moon: a classic book about a little rabbit saying goodnight to all the things in his room;
- Baby's very first touchy-feely bedtime book: touchy-feely textured patches bring to life bright pictures of familiar bed-time items;
- Good Night, Sleep Tight: Bonnie and Ben's favourite babysitter tells them nursery rhymes as they get ready for bed;
- We All Sleep: journey through a day with some of our Australian animals as they get ready to sleep;
- Reading Magic: Mem Fox's fascinating book for parents about the joys and importance of reading aloud to our little ones;
Please note that the book cover images shown here may differ to those in the basket depending on the print edition.
A super-soft Jellycat Bashful Bunny is perfect for little hands to hold while listening to the stories.
The beautiful, sturdy basket is designed to store the books so that they can be kept tidy and close at hand.
Our beautiful baskets are made especially for The Book Basket Company to our specifications and are sturdy enough to stand up to a bit of less-than-gentle handling from little ones. The cute liners are sewn for us here in Sydney by a lovely lady who operates her small business from home.
Basket: white-painted cane
Basket liner: 100% cotton
Little Nutbrown Hare rattle toy: polyester outer and filling
Your Bedtime Gift Basket is designed to stand up to normal wear-and-tear and to handling by young children:
Basket: wipe gently with a damp cloth.
Liner: wash gently in cold water, if needed. Line dry. Do not tumble dry as the cotton will shrink.
Little Nutbrown Hare rattle toy: spot clean with a damp cloth to remove any marks. Can be hand-washed. Air dry.
Books: board books are designed to be handled by babies and small children and we encourage this as it’s an important part of how little ones get to know and love books. Yes, the books are likely to become a bit worn but we think that’s OK. We suggest being a bit careful with Can’t You Sleep Little Bear? because the pop-up pieces are easily damaged by little fingers. You may like to keep this one out of reach of the under-2s, to be shared as a read-aloud with Mum or Dad.
Our gift baskets are shrink-wrapped to prevent the books moving around in transit. Each gift basket is protected by a layer of biodegradable, eco-friendly fill inside its shipping box:
Basket (empty): 23cm x 23cm x 14cm (height)
Basket (with books): 23cm x 23cm x 21cm (height)
Basket boxed for delivery: 30cm x 30cm x 30cm
We’re sure you and the little bookworm in your life will love your Bedtime Gift Basket but if for any reason you don’t please don’t worry. You can return your gift basket, no questions asked, and we’ll give you a full refund, including postage.
