Did you know that book subscription boxes aren’t just for developing readers? They make a great present for just about anyone. Here are our favourite book subscriptions that would be excellent gifts this Christmas!

One of our most popular articles from the past couple of years has been our recommended 7 book subscription boxes for kids. While we still believe that book boxes are a great way to explore new books and to get your children to be excited for new reading material, we also full-heartedly believe that receiving a box of surpirses each month has no age limit. Who wouldn’t be happy to receive bookish goodies on a regular basis?

If you are still on the look-out for an epic (and perfectly last-minute) Christmas present, we’ve got you covered.
