After literally TENS of requests, I present to you the Double Box! With this option you will get everything you would see in an Original Sustainable Book Box, (a delightful box of sustainable & ethical treats) but with two books and double the fun! Great for a couple or a very bookish one!


Each box will contain the following:

  • Two pre-loved second-hand or vintage** books, beautifully wrapped
  • Two hand-made bookmarks, with ribbon made from 100% recycled plastic bottles (can be personalised for an extra 50p! Click here!)
  • Two lots of sip (tea, coffee, chocolate, infusions, that sort of thing)
  • Two lots of nibbles (a sweet option and a savoury option)
  • Two things to admire (postcards, charming knickknacks)
  • 10% of profits donated to charity


*these boxes will be shipped as parcel size, which means you may need to be in to receive it. Having said that, there may be a safe place to leave it, or your friendly local sorting office will take care of it until you're ready. 

**in theory, anything pre-1990 is considered technically "vintage", but we'd say that it counts if it's 1980 or earlier. If you want something guaranteed to be 1960s or older, then check out our Vintage Edition Box!


NB. The books & contents shown are indicative only and may not come with your actual box.

The Double Box

  • There's a box underneath your genre selection for you to tell us anything you think we might need to know. Allergies? Pop them in here. Do you love cats so much that if there's a cat book you'd really, really like it?* OK, good to know. Do you only have blue things in your home? Righto. 

    Also, please do tell us if you have any particular triggers, or would prefer not to receive anything connected to alcohol, cigarettes or drugs. Our books range through the decades, and it's possible that not all of them will be 100%... shall we say... "enlightened" in every way. They may contain all sorts of things, and we absolutely don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable. Whatever your thing is, tell us. We won't judge, and we'll do our best to avoid it for you. 

    *There are almost certainly no cat books immediately available, but we'll always do our best to accommodate any special requests.
