We all know it’s better to give than to receive, but that doesn’t mean finding the perfect present for a friend is easy. While letters to Santa and registries can be helpful, they aren’t always the answer. So what’s a girl to do when she’s buying for the person that has everything or a couple’s wedding registry is already sold out (aside from that pricey limoges platter)?
Enter quarterlane, a company that curates literary boxes and delivers them directly to your doorstep. Founded by Massachusetts-based book buyer (and Every Mother Counts running ambassador), Elizabeth Lane, quarterlane thoughtfully chooses and packages new titles together for you every four months. And, from the season’s most anticipated fiction reads to the most coveted fashion and design books, we love them all!
Just in time for the holidays, the winter collection has something for everyone—even the guys in our lives. Winter box options include: Aesthete, Epicurean, Winter Fiction, Gentleman’s Quarterlane, Wellness, and Juniper Books for quarterlane (exclusive editions of Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Novels). Additionally, each box comes with a pretty 2017 planner from Sloane Stationery, a lavender-scented candle, and custom artwork from this season’s commissioned artist, Samantha Hahn.
Added bonus: there’s no need to worry about gift wrapping. quarterlane boxes are modeled off of luxury shoe boxes, and they’re attractive, sturdy, and worth saving and re-using for storage year round.
The boxes can be ordered individually or you can subscribe to receive them throughout the year. (Because who doesn’t love the gift that keeps on giving?)
