Need to add something to your gift basket?

If you're buying looking for gifts for twins, you may like to buy one of our gift baskets and add a second soft toy. The babies can share the books and will each have a snuggly friend to cuddle at story time. Perfect.
Or, if you’re buying a gift for a new baby, why not add a small gift for an older sibling to make the new big brother or sister feel special?
Any one of these super-cute soft toys can be added to any of our gift baskets to make your gift extra-special and perfectly unique.

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!

I bought the gift basket with the lift-the-flap books for my god-daughter when she turned three and it was a real hit. Her parents also love it. The books are fantastic and her mum says Maddy loves ‘reading’ them to herself in her reading corner.

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.

The books in our Lift-the-Flap Gift Basket have been carefully chosen to delight little ones and to enhance brain development by providing a variety of listening and fine motor experiences. The emphasis is on the rhyme, rhythmic language and repetition 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.

Your Lift-the-Flap Books Gift Basket contains the following books:

  • Dear Zoo: a lift-the-flap book about the animals the zoo sends in response to a child's request for a pet;
  • Where's Spot? a playful lift-the-flap board book about a mischievous puppy;
  • Hairy Maclary, Hide and Seek: a retelling of the original Hairy Maclary story;
  • Rhyme Cordial: unexpected rhymes, clever wordplay and bold, bright illustrations create lots of fun;
  • Alpha Block: thick pages cut into the shape of the letters of the alphabet create a peek-through guessing game in this fun lift-the-flap book;
  • Baby's First Farm Animals: features photos of farm animals and soft felt flaps to lift;
  • 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 deliciously soft Jellycat Bashful Lion is great for little hands to hold while listening to the stories.

Our signature gift baskets are sturdy, practical and beautiful and the perfect place to store this collection of lift-the-flap 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
Jellycat toy: polyester, plastic bead filling


Your Lift-the-Flap Books 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.
Jellycat Bashful Bunny: spot clean with a damp cloth to remove any marks. Can be hand-washed.

Books: lift-the-flap 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. Some of the flaps in these books are less sturdy than others and may tear so some supervision is recommended for younger children.


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 26cm (height)
Basket boxed for delivery: 30cm x 30cm x 30cm


We’re sure you and the little bookworm in your life will love your Lift-the-Flap Books 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.
