HEARTLESS Book Cover

Holiday Fun: Books as Gifts Part 4 Heartless

The book basket ideas continue, if you want to know what I'm on about the introduction to this idea is here.

Our example is the Parasol Protectorate books but you can do this with any genre book, I think. Imagine how fun it would be to theme The Eyre Affair basket!

1. Order signed from Borderlands (Definitely get your request in before Dec 15th, that's the last time I'll be able to get in to sign stock for them before the holidays.)
2. Source a vintage looking basket, possibly from a local thrift store
3. Fill with accompanying fun items, many of which might also be found at a thrift store

This basket is themed to Heartless and/or The Parasol Protectorate Boxed Set

Heartless Octopus themed basket:
Alternative book option: Kraken
Alternative basket: Octopus Beach Tote Bag
