Novel Ideas, a new subscription box and gift box service based in Limerick, has been officially launched by creators James Farrar and Colum O’Mara.
The service allows customers to sign up to a subscription box, which runs monthly and quarterly, based on the individual’s reading habits.
The aim of the company and founders is to get to know what you enjoy reading based on a short questionnaire on signing up.
“Our whole idea is we want to get the best books to the right people,” said co-founder Colum O’Mara.
This inspiration for novelideas.ie was a joined loved for reading, and a mutual feeling that people did not have the same access to great reads during the Covid-19 pandemic.
As well as the latest and most exciting books, the boxes also include book-related items and a chocolate bar from O’Conaill’s Chocolate of Cork.
Each box comes with free nationwide shipping with an additional fee for UK and Europe shipping.
Gift boxes are also available on site which come with extra goodies to make it the perfect gift for any occasion.
“It’s an ideal Christmas present for one and all,” says Colum, “You don’t have to do anything as such; all you’ve to do is pick a genre and we’ll sort the rest.
“It comes wrapped and packed and with a lovely handwritten card.”
Novel Ideas caters for all ages, including kids boxes available in the gift boxes section.
The current young adult box is in support of Limerick- based author, Jenny Hickman and features her latest release ‘Pan’; a reimagining of the Peter Pan story reflected in the 21st Century.
Corporate gift boxes are also available, a replacement from the usual office/ Christmas parties that are unable to go ahead this year and they also cater for book clubs.
