Celebrating Eleven Years of Bookishly
We’re celebrating eleven years of Bookishly this week which is mind boggling. We’re so grateful for the ongoing support over the years (now more than ever), and we stand by the fact that we have the best customers: a group of like minded people who are kind, helpful and have one huge thing in common - their love of books. So, above all else, thank you.
Despite the circumstances we couldn’t let this year pass without some sort of celebration, and so we’re bringing back one of our favourite limited edition products (something that usually sells out within a couple of hours) - our surprise lucky dip party bags. They’ll be going live at 11AM (BST) this Saturday 20th June. As usual there’ll be three different tiers of bags to choose from, each of them with varying amounts of stationery goodies inside. Make sure you’re subscribed to our newsletter or you’re following us on social media to be the first to hear about it.
We also thought that now was a great excuse to throw it back to our bookish birthday party last year, which in a world of lockdown and social distancing feels like a lifetime ago. Plus, it’s fun to reminisce! You can see all the photos in a blog post we wrote right here. You never know, it might come in handy for those of you who are planning a book themed wedding or celebration for next year or beyond.
If you or a friend are celebrating their birthday (albeit at a social distance) in the next few weeks then we hope to help you out there too. We’ve got a number of gifts that are perfect for sending straight to their doorstep (we write gift notes too)! Here are our most popular gifting items from the past few months to help you get birthday ready...
1. The Bookishly Classic Book Crate - £35
The Bookishly Classic Book Crate is the perfect bi-monthly book box subscription that all lovers of literature will appreciate.
