Each standard subscription box will have a brilliant new book, a large delicious bar of chocolate & a little artisan gift (curated for males & females) from a small Irish business. You can choose the genre of the book in the checkout. Standard subscriptions are 35 per month and can be paid monthly or in advance.

We also have a bespoke subscription option where you can mix and match the contents of your box. If you fancy 2 bars of gourmet chocolate every month? Or maybe you don't care about anything else and just want the books? Would you like a large surprise from an Irish company instead of chocolate? Or maybe no surprise? Each bespoke box starts off with a book from a genre of your choosing and you can add as many or as few extras as you wish. Bespoke subscriptions start at 23 per month.
