Holiday season is upon us! What does that mean? Time for some cozy socks, soft blankets, hot cocoa, and a pile of books! What else? Celebrations and get-togethers! Whether you celebrate or not, you’re bound to spend more time with friends and family during this season. For those of you who do celebrate, I’m sure you’re in need of some gift ideas.

Gift-giving can be fun when you have a great idea or know exactly what you want to give your loved one. However, it can feel like a chore when you have no direction. Should you just ask them for what they want? If you share some common interests, that can make it easier, but it’s not foolproof. If you have a bookish friend, your search could be as simple as getting them a book on their TBR. It can also consist of sifting through numerous recommendations and finding out that they’ve read everything you can think of! Well, fear not. I have some great book box sets to share with you.

Book box sets and book gift sets can look different depending on where you shop online and in person. On Etsy, you can find a bunch of unique book gift sets that have a common theme. Most of them are a mystery box or “blind date with a book” box. That means you’re picking out a gift without knowing what the book is! However, that does not mean you are left in the dark. Many of the sellers request links to Goodreads and StoryGraph to help them select a book for your purchase. What I like about these mystery boxes is that it shortens the process of gift-giving. Not sure what to get for one of your friends who likes to read? Or simply ran out of ideas? Buy them one of these book box sets! You can both enjoy the surprise! Let’s look at them below.
