Bedtime Gift Basket

Our Bedtime Gift Basket contains six lovely books about going to bed and bedtime routines to help make going to bed a peaceful and happy time.

These carefully-chosen books are a delight to read aloud to newborn babies and to little ones up to the age of about three and are perfect for sharing while snuggling up with mum or dad before bed.

The Bedtime Gift Basket is a lovely new baby gift, a unique baby shower gift idea or a lovely gift for a little person who’s turning one or two. If you’re looking for new baby gifts for twins – or baby shower gifts for twins – a Bedtime Gift Basket and a Baby’s First Library Gift Basket go beautifully together.

As well as being great fun to share with babies, each book has been carefully chosen to enhance cognitive development and bonding between the new parents and their baby.

For the parents, “Reading Magic” is a fascinating book about why reading aloud to children from their very first days is so important.

The basket is lined with your choice of pink or blue gingham.

This gift basket is available to be packed and shipped immediately.

The six lovely books in our Bedtime Gift Basket have been carefully chosen to appeal to babies and to very young children.

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.

Reading some or all of these books to a baby at bedtime signals to him or her that it’s time to go to sleep. It’s worth creating and sticking to a routine like this because babies feel secure and safe when they know what’s going to happen next. Reading familiar books at bedtime is also very comforting for our little humans and often helps them to relax and to settle more easily, ready for sleep.

The basket contains the following books:

Please note that the book cover images shown here may differ to those in the basket depending on print edition.

  • Reading Magic: Why Reading Aloud to our Children Will Change their Lives Forever
  • Time for Bed
  • Guess How Much I Love You
  • Goodnight Moon
  • The Going to Bed Book
  • Good Night, Sleep Tight
  • Can’t You Sleep, Little Bear?

A cuddly 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 baby’s bedroom or in the family living area. This makes it easy for caregivers to reach for a story regularly throughout the day.

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.
