Holiday FAQs

If I purchase a subscription today, when will it ship?

Updated 12/18/22:

Our December mailing has sold out. Any subscriptions purchased on or after 12/19 will ship with our January mailing - January 16th-20th. Shipping information with tracking #s will be emailed to the email address used at checkout when the first book ships.

\\

I want a book to ship now though...

We can make that happen! Please consider one of our Surprise Grab Bags which feature past Book Drop selections or a title from our shop.

\\

Can you guarantee delivery before Christmas?

Updated 12/16/22:

We cannot guarantee delivery by any specific date. We encourage readers to add the Upgraded Priority Shipping to their purchase to help ensure delivery is as fast as possible.

\\

Do you have any printable gift notes?

We do! We have multiple gift notes that can be downloaded & printed here.

\\

Can I have the first book shipped to me but future books shipped to the recipient?

Absolutely! Sign up using your mailing address, then email us at support@thebookdrop.com with the recipient's mailing address. We'll change all future mailings so books get shipped directly to the recipient after the holidays.

\\

Will the recipient be notified about their gift?

If you enter the gift recipient's email address at checkout they will be notified via email when we ship their first book. If you do not want the recipient to be notified when their book ships, please do not enter their email address *anywhere* during the checkout process. Unsure if you included their email address at checkout? Email us at support@thebookdrop.com & we can double check for you & delete their email address if need be! 

All gifts come with a handwritten note in the first mailing that includes information about the recipient's subscription, how long the subscription is for, who gifted the subscription to them, and your gift note if you provided one at checkout.

\\

What if the recipient doesn't like the genre I selected for them?

No worries! The gift recipient can switch their genre at any point. All they need to do is email us at support@thebookdrop.com and we can update their subscription to their preferred genre. If there is a price difference between subscription genres the recipient will be asked to pay the difference or, in the event of a refund, a refund will be sent to the card used to purchase the subscription.

\\

Do you gift wrap?

Yes! We wrap every book in colored tissue paper every single month! For all gifts we include a gift bow and a handwritten note in the recipient's first mailing.
