A gift-wrapped hand-selected book arriving every month. What better gift for a friend, family member, or even a
special treat for yourself!
You tell us what kind of books your friend likes (and any dislikes!). The Highland Bookshop then sends them a book every month (usually just published), tailored to their interests – the perfect bespoke present.
