How To Gift a Blind Date with a Book Box

So nice to see you here wanting to gift something to someone, how kind! Is it their birthday? A just because present? Is it the holidays already?!

We have several ways in which you can gift a Blind Date with a Book box to make it as easy and seamless as possible for you, kind gift giver.

Do you want the person to pick everything out themselves but don't want to spoil the surprise? A virtual gift card is the best thing for you! You can purchase in any increment you wish, and you'll be emailed a code to use at checkout. Easy peasy.

Do you know your book bestie so well you know they'd prefer a brunch recipe and hot cocoa instead of tea, and a Romance Paperback? Just order like you're getting one for yourself (which you can totally still do by the way, just order separately so they don't get packaged together!) and put your bestie's info in the shipping section, and leave me all their juicy deets in the notes field when you checkout. 

The notes section is the best place to leave a link to their GoodReads/Bookshelf page or just give us some detail on what kind of things you think they'd prefer. 

This is a great example of a perfect use of the notes field:

"So excited to send this to my friend Anna for her birthday, she's going to flip! Her favorite author is Maggie Stiefvater and has read everything by them, and I know she loved The Raven Cycle. Can she get coordinating annotating flags and highlighter with her box? And she prefers cocoa to tea! Thanks so much!"

You can always reach out if you want to send photos of a bookshelf of leave a longer form message, or even if you have questions. We're happy to help make the experience as lovely as possible!
