Bookish Gift Ideas {1} - The Willoughby Book Club

It's not rocket science. You have a bookworm friend, what do you give them? Books! The Willoughby Book Club just makes it special.

The WBC is essentially a virtual bookshop. Except, they provide a service as well as the books. What on Earth am I going on about? Well... Here is how it works...

You want to give your bookish friend a gift, but you don't think you're being imaginative just giving them a book or a book voucher. You want to give them something special. So you go into The Willoughby Book Club's website and chose a package to suit your friend's taste. Fill a quick form about what they like to read, pay for the package and voilà!  For the next 3, 6 or 12 months your friend will receive a surprise, beautifully packed title especially hand-picked for them every month. It's like having Christmas or your birthday on replay! 

Last week I entered a competition with them and won a gorgeous book bag. But when it came on the post earlier this week, it came in true Willoughby style - in a packaging so cute and pretty, I was actually sorry I had to open it! 

There is a range of packages on offer from children's books to corporate gifts. Starting at £24.99 for a children's 3 months package, which I think it's not bad value for a fab gift, all the way to £169.99 for a couple's 12 months package if you're feeling generous. 

Unfortunately, The Willoughby Book Club doesn't yet ship outside the UK, but they'll be doing in the near future. You can find out more about which packages are available and exactly what you would get in each one them here.

Personally, I think it's something different. A new way to give someone you like something they like. A truly tailored service for the bookish. Can't get much better than that!
