The Ultimate Gift

What beats a book bundle to mark a milestone event? The perfect present for birthdays and anniversaries, we will work with you to carefully choose and gift-wrap a specific number of books to match the number of years you are marking for a loved one or friend.

This could be…

  • A baker’s dozen of must-have cookbooks for the student departing the family nest
  • Eighteen essential coming-of-age reads for an eighteen-year-old
  • Thirty thrillers for a thirtieth anniversary
  • Sixty armchair travel collections for retired adventure-seekers
  • To name just a few!

Each set of books will be personally chosen according to the taste and interests of the recipient, so prices will vary. Drop by the store and speak to one of our friendly booksellers to plan your perfect gift, or feel free to drop us a line.
