Bookish Gift Guide :: Subscription Box Edition

  1. Owlcrate - owlcrate is my favourite, so much so I even bought one of their boxes, November 2016! It's far too expensive for me as an international to keep up the practice but it's definitely worth it! They send you a recently released Young Adult Fiction book. Every month is also themed. Owlcrate is a Canadian company that packages and ships out of the United States. They ship internationally and send you a hardcover book with a great set of bookish themed goodies!
  2.  Fairyloot - Every month is also themed. They are based out of London but ship internationally too. They are also a YA Book box that send you a hardcover book with bookish themed items.
  3. My Book Box - This subscription box sends you two books of your chosen genre, a special gift for you and a little exclusive content based on the books you received. Their intention is to send you just what you need. They only promise that your book will have been published in the last 45 days. This subscription allows you to get a book in your favourite genre and one in your significant other's favourite genre or one for you and one for your little one if that's what you'd like to do instead. Hey and you could even get both for yourself, I aint gonna judge.
  4. Nerdy Bookwarm Box - Now this is another book box I'm very excited to try someday! They work with people in the writing industry in the United Kingdom to bring you 'unique and exclusive hand crafted bookish goodies, such as candles, tote bags, bookmarks, and more.' So you get a YA novel and a few bookish goodies to put a smile on your face. From what I've seen, they usually have really fantastic prints that come with their box! Plus, it's blue, my favourite colour! It is costed in pounds though so it will be a very long time before I can ever try it, if at all. Definitely my second favourite so far i will admit!
  5. Once Upon a Book Club - This one looks super fun even from the very packaging, the whole thing looks like a giant book! They give you a book, a few things that are specific to the book and hints that require to only pen these things when you get to a particular page of the story! How adventurous right?! Their website stays they 'you'll receive a book (can be paperback or hardcover) to read, a 5" x 7" quote print, along with 2-4 corresponding gifts to match a quote/item mentioned in the book. Each individually wrapped with a page number. Readers, open the gifts as they finish the corresponding page. You'll also find book club discussion questions in each monthly box. Each question will have a date next to it. Log onto our Instagram page on that date to discuss the book with other members of the Book Club community' Um an international interactive book club?! HOW fun is that y'all?

All these bookish subscription boxes would make fantastic Christmas presents for the book lover in your life! Do let me know if you ever gave them a try?
