Gifts for book lovers
For over ten years now Mr B’s has been coming up with exciting ways that you can gift, or treat yourself, to books.
Check out our award-winning selection of bespoke gifts for book-lovers.
As a recipient of one of our award-winning and bespoke book subscriptions you begin by completing a short consultation so that we can get a feel for your reading tastes. Then one of the Mr B’s team will be appointed as your dedicated bibliotherapist and will hand-pick a book each month, chosen especially to suit you.
Every book arrives through your letterbox beautifully presented in our signature brown paper, string and wax seal. And you also receive a beautiful, limited edition bookmark to make sure you never lose your place!
This has been a brilliant and wonderful present. I have thoroughly enjoyed having you choose the books for me and this has opened my mind up to a new world of authors. The service I have received has been amazing. I would certainly recommend this subscription to anyone and everyone. It was an inspirational present
Mr B's Reading Spas

With a Mr B’s Reading Spa you are invited to our gorgeous shop in Bath for a unique bookish pampering gift in one of our sumptuous bibliotherapy rooms. One of our team of booksellers will learn all about your favourite reads by having an informal chat with you over coffee or tea and some delicious cake, before introducing you to a tower of books especially selected to suit your tastes.
The Reading Spa includes £55 to spend on your favourite recommendations, a Mr B’s mug and cloth bag and a £5 gift card for your next visit.
I cannot recommend Mr B's Reading Spa enough. The whole experience was so personal and carefully thought through. The member of staff I was allocated had been chosen to tune into my reading preferences - she was so friendly, very well informed, skilful at selecting books I may like and pushed my reading boundaries too. I was given it as a present and have already bought it as a present for someone else as I was so impressed
