As a bibliophile, I never turn down the gift of a book. I’m sure you have book lovers in your family who feel the same way. What if they have too many books (impossible!) or you want to give them a book-related present that’s not a book? I have two words for you: subscription boxes.
Subscription boxes are exciting because your giftee will receive mail every month (or however often you choose). Each box is a surprise. Who doesn’t love surprise gifts in the mail? If you’re not sure which subscription box will make your bibliophile jump for joy, I’ve got you covered. You can find the perfect subscription box based on your book lover’s favorite reads. Maybe you’ll find something for yourself, too!
