What's all this, then?

Would you like a beautiful, hand-crafted box containing a mystery vintage or second-hand book, something to sip, something to nibble and something to admire, all either ethically sourced, sustainable, biodegradable, recycled, recyclable, repurposed, and sometimes maybe all of the above? From only £18?

Sounds great! How does it work?

It couldn't be easier! Simply place an order for a box and we'll do the rest!


You can choose from Fiction, Non-Fiction, Plays, or go rogue and pick "Surprise Me"! We'll select a mystery book from that genre, pack it lovingly into a box with some treats to enjoy whilst you're reading, then pop it in the post to you. 


What's more, we'll donate 10% of our profits to charity with every sale.

This company is amazing! Several friends have received these carefully curated parcels and have been overjoyed with them. Great customer service, friendly, and prompt communication. Just lovely to find someone running a business that's so nice.

Absolutely love this! I went for the "surprise me" option and was delighted with the book I received. The treats and snacks were also spot on too - I especially loved the delicious teas and chocolate. It's great to know you're ordering from a small business that's totally committed to keeping things ethical and sustainable. Order was quick and easy to do and arrived within a few days. Couldn't recommend this highly enough for anyone who wants to treat themselves or others - it's the perfect choice!

Would totally recommend this for anyone looking for a gift that's a little bit different but very personalised. I ran out of time to buy and send a birthday present but The Sustainable Book Box came to the rescue. Recipient was delighted with his gift.

Our Charities

For 2021 our main charity is Cruse Bereavement Care.

Cruse offers support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies. They work to enhance society's care of bereaved people.


I directly benefitted from their excellent service when my mum died in 2011, and have recommended them to many friends and relatives since. I'm thrilled to be able to support them in a more active way at a time when more and more people will be in need of support, with fewer and fewer options available.

The first charity we supported was Acting for Others.


Acting for Others provides financial and emotional support to all theatre workers in times of need through the 14 member charities. 10% of the price of every box sold in our first 3 months of opening was donated; a total of £492.48!

In 2021 we will still be supporting them - alongside Cruse Bereavement Care - with 10% of profits from The Theatre Box


This is an extremely tough time for everyone in the arts, with no real idea of when we'll be able to work again in our profession. Follow them on Instagram @actingforothers | Twitter @ActingforOthers | Facebook: Acting4Others
