We’re loving how beautifully packaged Book Block’s gift boxes are, with a focus on both local and international brands that are a wee bit different. You can curate your own box or go for one of the many Mother’s Day options on offer – which include everything from wine and charcuterie to rum and Choco Chiquito chocolate. Our personal favourite is this Summer Picnic Gift Box, giving us hope for sunny days of fun to come, with a tipple from Forty Liquors, and biscuits and white chocolate-coated blackberries to munch on.
