What can I expect in a Lillypost box?
We love to surprise and delight! Each month, your child will unwrap beautiful new reads that are handpicked by a group of experts who have a keen eye for great kids’ product! On top of board and picture books, every once in awhile we will drop in a little extra “fun” for your child to enjoy!
I have children in both the board book and picture book age groups
We have a mixed book box that are great for families for children at different reading levels! A mixed box includes 2 picture book and 2 board books to appeal to each age group.
What if I received a book my child already has?
Community is a very important word to everyone here at Lillypost. If you receive a book that your child already has, we encourage you to share it with your community. Drop it off at a local charity, your child’s classroom, or even give it to your neighbour! We think this could be a great chance to interact with those around you and help make a small difference for children’s literacy.
If I sign up today, how do I know which month's box I will receive?
Our boxes run from the 15th of each month to the next 15th day of the month. For example, if you sign up for a subscription on January 10, you will receive the January box that will ship out on the 20th. Alternatively, if you sign up on January 15, you will be receiving the February box when they ship out of our facility on the 20th.
Can I order a gift certificate?
Yes! Check out our different designs here. After you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with your gift card details. At this point you can decide to forward or print the email for the end recipient.
Can I add a special note to my box?
When you place your order you will be emailed a detailed summary of the purchase. You can then forward that email on the person whom you are sending the box to. However, if you tick "this is a gift", you have the option to enter the recipient's name and email address. When the package has shipped, we will send them a notification email letting them know a Lillypost box is on the way from you! Alternatively you can see a special gift note here that you can download to your computer. You can then personalize the note and email to the recipient or print it out and give it in person.
