The very best way to find the perfect gift is to come into the shop and look around. Ask a staff member for advice, and you’ll receive a ton of brilliant suggestions. It’s what we do.

In addition to our hyper-curated book inventory, we have wonderful, quirky, non-book items for the book-lover in your life. We had a lot of fun finding this stuff, and we can’t wait to share it with you. Whether you want a book-themed T-shirt, a mug, a pin, a pencil case… we’ve got it. And, discerning and tasteful person that you are, you’ll probably want a ton of this stuff for yourself, too. To which we say: fill your boots.

And then there are our gift packages. Oh, the agony of choice…

Gift Certificates

Now we think we can find a great next book for absolutely anyone, but we also know the joy that comes with guilt-free browsing and choosing for yourself.

And that's where a Skylark Gift Certificate comes in handy. Available in any amount and with no expiry date, they’re just like cash – treat someone to one of these and they can browse our shelves or quiz us for recommendations to their heart’s content.

Reading Subscriptions

What do you give the reader in your life? How about a steady supply of brand-new books chosen especially for them, and delivered direct to their door each month?

As the recipient of one of our book subscriptions, you begin by completing a short consultation so that we can get a feel for your reading tastes. Then one of the Skylark team will be appointed as your dedicated bibliotherapist. They will choose a book each month, chosen especially to suit your tastes and interests. Every book arrives through your letterbox beautifully gift-wrapped.

The Skylark Reading Spa

Maybe this is the ultimate gift for the book-lover in your life.

With a Skylark Reading Spa you get to spend a delicious hour or two at our Columbia store, for some luxurious literary pampering (alliteration fail). One of our team of booksellers will learn all about your favorite reads by having an informal chat with you over coffee or tea and a doughnut (or possibly cake), and will then suggest a range of possible titles for you to choose from, specifically chosen to suit your tastes. What makes this so much fun? As part of the Reading Spa, you have $100 to spend on any books you like. In other words: totally guilt-free shopping. Bring. It. On.

The Reading Spa includes $100 to spend on books, a Skylark mug, and a $10 gift certificate for your next visit.
