Blind Date with a Book - Christmas Edition


This surprise book gift is a great book lover treat - a fun twist on our classic Blind Date with a Book gift! Perfect gift for book lovers, bookworms, readers and bibliophiles as a surprise treat.

Your favourite person deserves to put their feet up this Christmas. Fact! And a cosy afternoon spent reading sounds pretty good to us.  📖 Answer a few questions on their behalf and we’ll set you up with a book from our collection of classics. Oh and because they deserve nothing less, we’ll throw in the matching bookmark for free.

Their book will come gift-wrapped in our exclusive festive wrapping paper and there’s an option to add your own gift note too! Whoever you’re celebrating - mum, dad, sibling, partner (even yourself!) - this little token gift is the perfect way to say Merry Christmas. 🤗  

You can see an example of some of the books in our collection in the product photographs. We have over 28 books in our range.  

Pick their favourite genre: romance, crime, adventure, family, gothic, philosophical.

Pick a word that describes them best: adventurous, daydreamer, perfectionist, serious, romantic, thoughtful/reflective, family oriented, fun.

Tell us one of their favourite books…

Our lovely friends in the EU might like to know that have managed to put measures in place to collect taxes at the point of checkout, so purchases from our Etsy store won't be subject to further taxes on arrival in the EU. Not all of our products are on there because some are not eligible to be sold on Etsy but most are. Please be aware that while Etsy are processing sales tax, they are not processing customs fees, so they may still be payable on receipt.

There's more information about customs and VAT here.

EU CUSTOMERS - Subscriptions

Sadly we have had to remove the EU shipping option for subscriptions from our website. There's no practical way for us to prevent fees being charged EVERY time you receive a monthly parcel if you shop via our website. Some of our subscriptions are available in our Etsy store and Etsy will process the sales tax (but not the duties) for us. If you decide to buy a subscription via Etsy then you'll get a message from us suggesting that we send all the months in one go for you to open in turn.
