Announcing a new and perfectly indulgent books, chocolate and candle gift book box!

I am beyond excited to tell you about our newest gift box which was inspired by Mothers’ Day (31 March 2019 if you need a reminder!) and the wish to treat our Mum’s to the ultimate indulgence.

My Chronicle Book Box Gift Card Options

This box is not limited simply to Mums on Mothers’ Day though, it would make a wonderful treat for any book lover. Choose between crime thriller, classic crime and sci-fi & fantasy editions and pick your greetings card for your personal message.

We spend so much time looking at our screens these days that it is a precious gift to have the chance to lose yourself in a tactile print book, free from the interruptions of emails, adverts and notifications.

Reading is our passion here at My Chronicle Book Box; it’s part of our everyday life and we just LOVE sharing great books with others. It’s the foundation of our small business and it’s not all that we love. We spend a lot of time seeking out great products from the best designers and makers to complement and enhance the reading experience still further.

We think we may have found the ultimate pairings for our choices of books for this box and have been privileged to collaborate with artisan chocolatier Cocoa Wonderland to bring you a selection of the highest quality handmade chocolate!

Cocoa Wonderland Chocolate Selection Box - 3 100g Bars

Cocoa Wonderland is a chocolate shop, café and traditional sweet shop nestled in the hills of Sheffield overflowing with amazing chocolate handmade in their own little in-house chocolate factory. It is heaven in there and tasting their chocolate in the interests of research was probably the best work day of my life!

As if 2 great books (hand gift wrapped of  course) and a box of the most delicious handmade chocolate was not decedent enough we have also added a gorgeous scented candle from Bookworm Candles & Crafts and a stylish art print to ensure we delight all the senses.

There is a choice of three variations of the box for classic crime lovers, crime thriller fans and science fiction & fantasy buffs each coming with hand picked books one in hardback and one in paper back.

For Crime thriller fans – The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley (HB) and The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton (PB).


Classic crime - Mother's Day book box (2)

For classic crime lovers – The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie (HB) and The Riviera Express by TP Fielden (PB)

For science fiction and Fantasy buffs – Water & Glass by Abi Curtis (HB) and The Humans by Matt Haig (PB)

We all know someone who deserves to be treated to some time away from pressures of real life to relax and recharge and this box provides everything needed to make that dream come true.
