Christmas Gifts & Last Order Dates

Here is some information to help you order handmade leather books in time for Christmas this year. If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I ship worldwide, all orders are insured and require a signature on delivery for extra peace of mind. Last order dates are detailed below.

The Ready To Ship Collection is updated weekly with new products and is ideal for those in a hurry to organise their gifts - you'll find leather Journals and Artist's Sketchbooks, Memory Books for those who love to scrapbook or keep a photo album, Paperback Notebooks and Albums for those on a budget who nevertheless want to give a quality handmade gift.

My Bespoke Service is ideal if you have a little longer to plan, and would like a personalised dedication on the title page and any colour combination you can dream of. It's best to order as early as possible, I would recommend October or November. But if we're already into December when you're reading this, do get in touch - I may just be able to help.

Need a Gift Service? No problem! All books arrive in branded, brown-paper packaging. A hand-written gift message can be included, and I would be happy to deliver directly to your gift recipient, just leave their details in the 'shipping address' section at checkout. A gift receipt will be included with information about the book, how to use and care for it.
