Christmas Gifts Delivered Worldwide

Standard, express & local pickup options

I ship worldwide from the UK with standard and express delivery options and also offer Click & Collect if you are local to Wimborne, Dorset.

Gift delivery

I can send a gift directly to your loved one, wherever they live. Enter your information in the 'billing' fields, and their information in the 'shipping' fields. If you'd like a note or gift card with a personal message included just leave me a note at checkout with what you'd like to say, or email me after ordering.

A sustainable Christmas

They say Christmas is the season of excess, but we know it can be sustainable, right?! Many of my books are made with sustainable, renewable or recycled materials. All orders arrive in packaging which is entirely, re-usable, recyclable and come compostable.
