Bookish Christmas presents for girls and boys
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 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
With one of our subscriptions, kids get to experience the joy of opening a parcel addressed to them again and again and again!
Starting from £39.99 for a 3-month subscription (including UK P&P), this is a brilliant option for a main present from parents or grandparents for 5 to 14-year-olds.
Opt for one of our gift subscriptions if you’re after a one-off present. Alternatively, if there’s a chance you’ll want to continue the subscription for longer, check out our rolling subscriptions.
We choose all our books 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.
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.
When you’re giving a gift subscription, why not send them a gift voucher to open on the big day?
Our gift sets are also a great option for popping under the tree and include a book, activity pack, tote bag, embossed pencil, enamel pin and keepsake bookmark. If you want to add a voucher too, we’ll simply slip it into the box with your note.
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.
Bookish gifts for under £25
Kids, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends will love unwrapping one of our fabulous gift sets. Build your own gift set or choose from our collection of some of our most popular books from this year. Either way we’re sure you’ll find the perfect title for whoever you have in mind.
Our prices include free UK shipping and we’re very happy to send internationally too. For more details see our delivery page.
Stocking fillers and Christmas Eve boxes
Our one-off packs are quick and easy to wrap and pop in a stocking or box. They are made up of a chapter book and accompanying activity pack held together by a simple belly band.
They're titles we've sent to subscribers in the past so there will be no overlap if you opt for a subscription too. Choose from our Parakeet titles for younger readers (roughly 5 to 8), Cockatoo titles for age 8 to 12 and Macaw titles for 12 to 14-year-olds.
You'll also love these fun gifts for book lovers under £10.
