A great gift!

published

I requested a long and varied list of reading interest for a 6 book gift subscription for my partner. Bookabuy blitzed it and we both enjoyed the quality and diversity of the titles they chose (and the delivery presentation is beautiful and immaculate). Very happy to recommend!

I’m currently the favourite child after this!! Living on isolated sheep station during lockdown was limiting my shopping. I wanted something personal, something I could ‘put together’ online ( more than the usual flowers & chocolates) for my mum’s birthday. Discovered Bookabuy !! Best thing ever. Everyone in my family is getting this from now on in!! Thanks Mel for fixing my address typo x love, love ,love it!!

Thank you Mel and Bookabuy for an absolutely seamless experience helping me select the perfect combination of goodies for my hamper to my work colleague. He absolutely loved it and was really impressed by the thoughtful way it was put together and personalised just for him! Nice to be able to share some joy in lockdown!

I can’t rave enough about bookabuy! These guys know their books. I’m on my third book and I’ve loved every one of them. I haven’t read like a can’t put a book down for years. I look forward to every month with excitement for what has been personally chosen for me. The candle is a luxury treat from Glass house always beautiful. Highly recommend ❤️

Gifted bookabuy

I was overly impressed with the goods included in the hamper and the safe delivery of the package. The prices were a little high but well and truly worth it with the products that are included. Highly recommend.

Such a great gift

published

I bought this for a friend’s birthday. My hamper was SO easy to customise, I even got to choose the flavour of each item! Although you don’t get to choose the book titles, you get to pick a genre - and my friend loved both the books selected by the Bookabuy team. The products were all such great quality too. The only thing I wish could have been nicer was the personalised message. It would have been nice if it was handwritten, but it was typed along with the order sheet. Can’t complain though, definitely recommend this as a solid gift!
