The Book Resort is a monthly book subscription box based in Ireland, that delivers boxes with a brand new, recently published book, Irish chocolate & a small surprise to book lovers around the world. One time gift boxes are also available. Don't live in Ireland? We can send our boxes anywhere in the world via carrier pigeon (aka couriers).
You choose either a subscription box or a one time gift box. Around the 1st of each month, we ship your box so subscribers should have their box during the first week of the month in Ireland. For everywhere else, we would expect you to receive the box by the second/third week. One time gift boxes ship 1-2 days after date of order, unless you specify a different delivery date.
Kids Book Boxes ship within a week after date of order and then every quarter. You will receive the first box soon after ordering and the next boxes ship on 15th June, 15th September & 15th December.
WHAT IS IN THE BOX....There are 2 brilliant new books , tailored for each childs age group, a copy of the wonderful "The Happy News" newspaper & a pair of fabulous"Polly & Andy" socks.
You can also choose a bespoke subscription and add as many or as few products as you wish.

AGE & GENDER...You will be asked the age and gender of the child/children in the checkout so we can curate each box for you.
BILLING...You will be billed immediately and your first box will ship 1-2 days after order. You will be billed again at the start of the next quarter, ie 1st June, 1st September etc and those boxes ship the 15th June, 15th September and so on.

Yes, we are 100% Irish. In addition all the surprises are from small Irish businesses, the chocolate is sourced from Irish chocolatiers, our cards are made in Waterford and we use an Irish book wholesaler. So are we Irish...definitely, absolutely & completely.
The monthly book box has a brilliant new book, delicious Irish chocolate & a little surprise every month. If you choose a gift subscription you can have a card included in the first box if you wish.
We use Irish suppliers, Irish chocolatiers, Irish wholesalers & an Irish artist for our cards. Even our boxes are made in Ireland and the gold paper is from Cork.
The classic gift box contains a brand new recently published book and some yummy Irish chocolate & a little gift, the same as the subscription box and you have the option of having a hand written card included with the once off box if you wish. Please choose "This is a gift" in the checkout and fill in the message to be included.
The luxury gift box contains 2 new recently published books, 2 skincare/beauty products from fabulous Irish beauty & skincare companies and a generous helping of Irish chocolate.
We use Irish suppliers, Irish chocolatiers, Irish wholesalers & an Irish printing company for our cards.
Of course you can, simply follow the instructions below.
1. Choose "This is a gift" in the checkout. Please give the recipients delivery address in the checkout.
2. Choose the length of the subscription. You have the option of 1, 3, 6 or 12 month subscriptions or until you cancel.
3. Choose the start date of the subscription. Your card will be charged on the start date and the box will be delivered the following month. For example, If you would like your gift box to begin arriving in early March please choose any date in February. The cut off is the last day of the month, ie-the last day of February in the example above.
4. If you would like a card included in the first box please fill in the message for the card in the gift message box. This will appear at the final stage of the checkout.
The main differences are that gift boxes are a one time purchase, whereas the subscription box is an ongoing subscription. A gift box will be shipped with 1-2 working days. The subscription boxes ship the first 3 days of every month.
Of course you can, just fill in your own address and the box will go directly to you.
We ship our boxes on a daily basis (Monday-Friday), so you can expect yours to go out fairly soon after ordering, 1-2 days is the norm. If you live in Ireland you can expect it to be delivered very quickly. European and international customers should allow up to 10-15 working days for delivery.
If you require a different shipping date please call us on 083 1329794 or email us>> firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will receive your box the first week of the following month. If you sign up on 25th October for example, you will receive your first box during the first week in November if you live in Ireland and during the second week of November for the rest of the world.
We ship around the 1st of every month (if the 1st is on the weekend or a bank holiday, the boxes will ship the next working day) with our national couriers, so ideally everyone should have their boxes 1-2 working days after this in Ireland. We do like to allow a little time for weekends & bank holidays so we would aim to have all of the boxes delivered during the first week of the month. Your box may not arrive on the exact same day each month but it won't be far off. For our European and international customers the same applies, it might not be on the same day but it should be close. Our international customers should allow 10-15 working days for delivery.
The advance subscriptions start at the beginning of the following month that the subscription was purchased.
For example if someone gifted you a 6 month subscription and that was purchased in December, the subscription will automatically start in January and will run until June.
You or the purchaser can request a different start date/pause/delay the subscription at any time. Simply email us @email@example.com or call us on 083 1329794 or dm us on Insta and we can do that for you.
You are billed each month on the same day that you signed up. If you sign up on the 15th September, you will be charged on the 15th September and you will receive your first box during the first week of October if the box is being shipped in Ireland. You will be billed again on the 15th October and will receive that box during the first week of November and so on.
Our European and international customers should expect their box to arrive in the first two weeks of the month.
The last day of each month is the final day for signing up, ie the 30th or 31st of the month before.
Of course you can. Ring us on 083 132 9794 and we can take all of your details.
In your account there is an option called subscription settings and the option is there to cancel. There is no notice period required, the day before you are billed is fine and you can cancel at any stage. You can also pause your subscription instead if you prefer.
Ah ha...now thats where the surprise lies. Its a closly guarded secret. Every month, we read, research and discuss what books to send the following month. We talk to book bloggers, reviewers & publishers to ensure the book we do choose is the ideal fit for you. However, you can specify the genre you prefer if you wish for your subscription.
We would hate if this happens and it is a rare but possible risk as some of you are very well read. But we will fix it. We will arrange for a refund or replacement book to be sent straight to you. If this does happen please let us know immediately.
It is free, completely free anywhere in Ireland. No charge at all. This applies to all subscriptions and gift boxes.

Of course. We are very serious in our quest for global domination. We do have to charge for shipping outside of Ireland, we are sorry for this but postal rates are extremely high...possibly because we are on an island. Its a great island but it does mean a ship or plane is needed to get stuff off it and these are apparently very expensive....sigghhhhhh!!!
