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!

Your gift baskets are now my go-to gift when someone has a baby. The books in the Baby’s First Library Gift Basket are the books my wife and I loved reading to our kids when they were small. Brings back all the memories. Great choices!


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 Snuggly Storytime Gift Basket for 3-Year-Olds is the perfect birthday, Christmas or just-because gift for a 3-year-old boy or girl.

Each of the books in our Snuggly Storytime Gift Basket for 3-Year-Olds has been carefully chosen to appeal to children who are just turning three and on their way to becoming fantastic four-year-olds. At this age, children are becoming interested in longer stories with a clear plot and are usually happy to sit and listen to stories for longer than they have been before. Beautiful rhythms and bouncy rhymes make these books for 3-year-olds fun to read aloud and are important for stimulating a love of language and and awareness of how language works.

The books in our Snuggly Storytime Gift Basket for 3-Year-Olds are board books so they're great - and easy - for 3-year-olds to handle themselves. This is an important part of helping children develop a love of books and reading. Our signature gift basket is a great place to store the books so your favourite 3-year-old can dip into them whenever they like.

        • We're Going on a Bear Hunt: a classic, rhyming story about a family's adventure as they hunt for bears;
        • Alpha Block: thick pages cut into the shapes of the letters of the alphabet create a peek-through guessing game in this fun lift-the-flap book;

        Our signature gift basket is beautiful and sturdy and a great place 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 in Canberra by a lovely lady who operates her small business from home.

Basket: white-painted cane
Basket liner: 100% cotton
Jellycat toy: polyester, plastic bead filling


Your Gift Basket for 3-Year-Olds 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.
Jellycat Bashful Bunny toy: spot clean with a damp cloth to remove any marks. Can be hand-washed.

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.


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 24cm (height)
Basket boxed for delivery: 30cm x 30cm x 30cm


We’re sure you and the little bookworm in your life will love your Gift Basket for 3-Year-Olds 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.
