My book is a gift please don't put a receipt inside! 

Because people love to send a Blind Date with a Book as a present we do not put an invoice in any of our packages as standard practice. All receipts are sent by email to the address of the person who purchased the gift. If you require a copy of the receipt contact us as at and we will happily send you a new one.

Since my book is a gift can you put a note on it for me?

Of course we can. At the checkout there will be a place to out in note that you want written. The space to write the note is relatively small so keep it to about 8 words for it look nice.

What is Proof of Delivery ? 

Once your order has been shipped by the delivery company you will get a tracking number that allows you to see when it has left our warehouse and when it arrives at the delivery address. This is handy if you are sending a Blind Date with a Book as a gift to somebody directly and want to make sure that they have received it.

Who do we ship with ? 

Within the UK we ship with our good friends at Royal Mail and with Swedish Post for international orders.
