Book Lover Gifts - What's New and What's to Come?
2020 has been somewhat of a whirlwind to say the least; the past eight months have felt like we’ve been operating on both pause and fast forward all at once. Lockdown saw us reduce down to just a skeleton team, where we focussed on getting orders out the door as quickly and as safely as possible. As a result, product design and development had to be put on hold, which meant that for a long time we were unable to bring you anything new and exciting. (One of our favourite things to do!)
Slowly but surely things have returned to a new ‘normal’ and with the entire team now working again, albeit socially distanced and from various places, we’re able to not only focus on fulfilling orders (which we’re so grateful for during such an uncertain time), but on creating and launching new products too.
We thought we’d fill you in on what’s new on our website, as well as a little discussion about what’s to come, including one of our favourite collection launches ever!
You guys loved our Arthur Weasley mug so we thought we’d add to the collection. Our new coffee mug comes with an extra shot of solid life advice... “Live your life in a way that Professor Mcgonagall would be both proud and exasperated by you.” If that doesn’t motivate you, we don’t know what will.
We've launched a new vinyl laptop sticker at the end of last month to celebrate the birth of the brilliant Alexandre Dumas. For each sale made we'll make a donation to the wonderful Room to Read's Literacy Programme. 📖 It works to create paths for underrepresented voices to be heard by pursuing the end of illiteracy on a global scale.
Our new academic year postcard calendar features twelve of our beautiful book cover designs and comes with a freestanding wooden holder that’s perfect for desktops, sideboards, shelves and worktops - a great way to stay organised! It includes six double sided postcards with the months running from September 2020 to August 2021.
Each literary gift parcel features one of our Bookishly Editions (you pick your/their favourite) and your choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. We’ll then throw in a free bookmark, gift wrap it and send the bundle straight to your loved one’s door. It’s the perfect letterbox gift - a lovely way to stay connected.
Our postcard sets have been a firm favourite among customers this year, so we decided to add some more to our collection. They’re a great way to connect with loved one who you haven’t been able to see much of this year. Most sets include twelve postcards, two of each design, so you have the option of sending one out to a friend whilst keeping one for yourself.
Our book duo gift consists of two identical book bundles for you and a friend. A wonderful gift to bring the two of you together, no matter how far apart you might be. We’ll gift wrap each parcel and send them out to your respective shipping addresses. All you have to do is make sure you and your bestie take some well deserved time out each week!
Level up your bookshelf with the newest additions to our editions. Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, The Time Machine by H.G Wells and Tess of the d’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy are all now available to buy on their own or as part of our three book bundle deal.
Our bookish list sweatshirts have been popular with our customers for quite some time, so we thought it only made sense to make them available as totes as well! Each bag features some of our favourite literary icons.
There’s a lot of exciting things coming up, most of which we’re keeping under wraps, but we’ve got a brand new product collection that we’re launching at the start of next month that we had to tell you just a little bit about…
We’ll be launching a range of candles with scents based on your favourite fictional locations. Escapism from the comfort of your own home!
More info coming very soon. Watch this space!
