357 products

That new book smell, excitement about the reading adventure that awaits, feeling the connection to the person that’s given it to you… there’s something magical about unwrapping a new book at Christmas.

From our award-winning monthly book subscriptions to chapter books, letterbox gifts, stocking stuffers and ideas for a Christmas Eve box, we’re here to help you give the gift of reading this Christmas.


A subscription gift that keeps on giving

We choose the books for our subscription boxes very carefully and believe they're perfect for both boys and girls. You may like to read more about how we select our books and why we think all books are for everyone.

There are two options for you to consider. Our gift subscriptions are great if you're after a one-off present but if there’s a chance you’ll want to continue the subscription for longer our rolling subscriptions are a better bet...

Small gifts, stocking fillers and Christmas Eve boxes

We think you can never go wrong giving a book as a gift but giving more than one is even better!

We're also pleased to stock a small range of booklovers' gifts like bookmarks, pins, tote bags and book lights.

Letterbox gifts for when you can't be there in person

We’re very happy to add a handwritten note to any orders and send them straight to the lucky recipient. 

But don't just take our word for it, read this review about how a Parrot Street Book Club subscription keeps a grandmother and granddaughter connected despite living on separate continents.

What our happy customers have to say...


Brilliant Christmas Gift

Our nine year old granddaughter who is an avid reader is thrilled to have joined a book club! The opportunity to write a review each month will certainly add to her enjoyment.


Great gift and fun treat each month

I bought this for my son as a way of spreading out his Xmas gifts a bit. After the excitement of Christmas had passed it was great to know there would still be a treat coming in the post.


Nice idea for a gift

A selection of past packs given as Christmas gifts to the children of my family (nieces, cousins etc). They all liked the idea of the activity packs, especially the associated recipes.

Nicely packaged, great communication and fast delivery. 


I bought this as a Christmas present for my 10 year old granddaughter. Judging by her reaction when she opened the present, she was delighted. My daughter said that she will definitely be starting a subscription.


Much excitement

Bought as a Christmas present but continued as my children love receiving their new books.

There is always much excitement when they see the packages arrive and it has introduced us to so many new books of different genres that otherwise we may not have been picked up.
