The Beautiful Book Company Review

You know when you receive a parcel that makes you squeal a bit? Yes, that happened to me last week. What was this mystery package? A review from Beautiful Book Company. Yes, books. Surprise picks, beautifully packaged, begging to be read.

The lovely Emily at The Beautiful Book Company sent me the package, and she absolutely made my day. The Beautiful Book Company offer a great range of book boxes, book subscriptions and they’ve just started to add stationery to their collection, too.

Now, as you know I run Bring Back Paper here, championing all things papery, from snail mail to stationery, but books will always remain my first love. And when I say books, I do mean actual books, not e-books, so when I spotted this on The Beautiful Book Company’s website, I knew we could be friends…. Whilst many people choose e-books these days, we’re sure you’ll agree that there is nothing better than the look, feel and smell of a physical book, whether you’re opening it for the first time, or pulling it off the bookshelf to devour for the twentieth time.

You can choose from The Classic Collection, The Contemporary Collection, The ‘New Mum’s Collection, The Traveller’s Collection, The Chef’s Collection, The Film Lover’s Collection, The Arts & Crafts Collection, The ‘Big Cheese’ Collection, The ‘Put Your Feet Up’ Collection, The Retirement Collection, The Couple’s Collection and The ‘Get Well Soon’ Collection, along with a couple of options for kids, The Children’s Classics Collection and The Baby & Toddler Collection. Phew, that’s a lot of choice, something for everyone?

I received the ‘Put Your Feet Up’ collection. It was beautifully put together, so I’ll share it as I opened it stage by stage for you…

The unwrapping process was wonderful, to reveal…

The Beautiful Book Company Put Your Feet Up Book Box

As a gift for a book-lover like myself? A guaranteed hit. Especially when that book has been hand selected for you, beautifully packaged and delivered right to your front door. I can see this making a gorgeous present, or treat for yourself, whether it be a one-off or an ongoing subscription, I do like the flexibility that it offers. I’m always up for trying reads that I may not have picked for myself, a great way of discovering authors or genres that are new to me, so this ticks that box. The packaging itself, as you can see, is just perfect and really makes the delivery feel special.

The only problem that I have with this is choosing which book to read first!

The team at The Beautiful Book Company are now offering one of my readers the chance to win a book subscription for their little one. The winner will receive either the Baby & Toddler collection or the Children’s Classic Collection, as a 3 month subscription (winner’s choice). The competition is open to UK entrants only, and closes at 12am 14th October 2015. Good luck!

  1. The baby and toddler collection. My 14 month old loves books, he’d rather turn the pages of a book than play with his toys!

  2. I like the Baby and toddler one or children’s one for my older son. If I could choose for myself, I would love the “Put your feet up selection” that you got!

  3. Oh my!! Just look at the wrapping!! I am so in love with this now!!! The baby & toddler collection would be perfect for us right now… but the children’s classic collection is fabulous too.

  4. It would have to be the children’s classics! Books I loved as a little girl that I could share with my two little ones! Can’t beat a good book!!

  5. Oh the Children Classics sound amazing! I’d love to read them to the boys 🙂

    I so want this subscription, I’m sad that I can’t really afford it at the moment but shall definitely put it up on my Christmas wishlist!! X

  6. Hello from a new reader =)
    I’m Ema & your blog & this post excites me so so much! I’m a big fan of what I like to call ‘proper books’ too. I just don’t ‘get’ the whole e-books thing! – I too LOVE the feel and smell of books. My Son is following in my footsteps & already has a huge collection at nearly 3 years old =)
    I’ve been looking for book subscriptions for gifts recently so thank you for blogging & hosting as I wasn’t aware of this company.

    The collection I’d love would be The Baby & Toddler Collection for my Son =)

    Saved your blog to my reading list & look forward to following. X

  7. Hi Jocelyn, Oh the way the books are presented is a real treat in itself! I do love my Kindle, but I would love to receive a package of lovingly presented books like this. And I know my daughter would be in her element if she were to get a box of books like this. I usually by books from The Book People, but I am certainly going to be checking out The Beautiful Book People just to see what they have to offer.

    I think I would choose the the Put Your Feet collection too.


  8. I’d enjoy the arts & crafts collection, but the children’s classics collection sounds wonderful to put away for when my daughter’s a bit older (and for me to read some books I might have missed growing up).

  9. The children’s subscription. My daughter is 4, so actually a little young for it but is just starting to enjoy having “chapter books” read to her and is falling in love with classics

  10. I’d love to Classic collection but I think I’d have to choose the Children’s Classic collection for my Daughter!

  11. I’d love to Classic collection but I think I’d have to choose the Children’s Classic collection for my Daughter!

  12. Well the Put Your Feet Up ones look perfect for me! I think I would find it hard to choose, to be honest. I know my daughters would love getting a children’s version to unwrap!

    Baby and Toddler collection would be perfect for my little 4 month old 🙂 I have a bookcase for him but a small number of books so more would be lovely!
