FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What comes in a $60 book basket? How about a $75 basket?
Since each basket is individually selected, we have no standard list of what books go into each size basket. That’s what makes us unique! We can tell you, however, that depending upon the balance of the books selected, the $60 basket contains 6 – 8 books. The $75 basket can feature the same number of books with the added bonus of a cuddly stuffed storybook character, or it can simply increase by more board books.
Is there a way to make the book selections more personal?
Yes! If you tell us that the gift is going to NYC, for example, we can include 123 NYC. Similarly, we can include dog stories for dog-lovers, sports books for sports-loving families, and on and on! Is the new dad a chef? We will be sure to include Foodie Babies Wear Bibs, or A Is For Asparagus. Is the mom an art or music connoisseur? We have plenty of books on these topics as well! Please be sure to write any details in the special requests section when placing an order, or give us a call to discuss options!
Why do some photos show colored tins, while others show white wicker baskets?
When a basket is $60, $75 or $100, we use the pink, blue, or white tins. When a price is selected above $100 ($150-$400), we use white wicker baskets, as they are larger and fit more books!
What stuffed animals do you offer?
In keeping with our love of books, all of the stuffed animals we carry are actual storybook characters – popped right out of the pages of a childhood classic and into the arms of a happy baby or toddler. These include Curious George, Madeline, Peter Rabbit, and Winnie the Pooh, to name a few. And, of course, the cuddly character is always accompanied by the appropriate matching book!
If I want to send a smaller gift (not a basket), what do you offer?
At BabyBookBaskets.com no gift is small… because each storybook leads children on adventures into great big wonderful worlds! However, if you’d like to spend a little less, our book bundles offer an opportunity to send a bunch of books, minus the basket. You can spend as little as $40 – 50 and get a great gift! These bundles are attractively wrapped in cellophane and ribbon – blue or pink – depending upon the sweet bundle who will be receiving the gift!
How do you select the book to be included for the older sibling?
With your help, of course! Just tell us if we are honoring a big brother or a big sister and the approximate age of the older sibling and we can match up the perfect book and label it for the new big brother or big sister!
Can I request a specific book to be included in the basket?
Absolutely! We pride ourselves on our extensive and ever-growing selection; but, if you have a favorite which is not currently in our inventory, we can certainly special order it. In this case, the basket will not ship with our usual same day speedy service; but, it will go out in just a few days!
What method of shipping do you use? How long will it take for my basket order to be filled and delivered?
We ship via UPS, unless a customer requests another carrier. We can also overnight ship via UPS or FedEx, although it will add considerably to the total cost. If you have a FedEx account, we can even overnight ship a baby basket and charge it accordingly. Basket orders are shipped out within 24 hours of when they are placed and most packages arrive within 1-3 days. In the case of shipments to the West Coast, it may take longer. We can provide you with more accurate shipping information when we have the actual destination of the package and are happy to do so!
Do You Ship Internationally?
Unfortunately, over the past few years, the cost of shipping packages out of the country has become prohibitive. For that reason, we no longer ship internationally.
