Need a unique gift to show your employees and clients how much you appreciate them? 

Whether you're looking to welcome new staff, say thanks to your team, mark a special event for your company or thrill your clients, a gift box from Paperback Down is perfect for all occasions. 

Curated for you

Our curated gift boxes include gifts and treats sourced from local makers and producers, as well as books by Irish and Northern Irish writers. Or if you have a particular book or theme in mind, we can work with you to create your perfect bespoke gift box.

Show you care

Reading is a favourite way to relax and unwind for many of us, so what better way to show you care than with the gift of a little bookish downtime. Perfect for team celebrations, company anniversaries, welcoming new employees and so much more.

  • Supporting Local Business

    We source as much as we can from local makers and producers. With every purchase, you're supporting small businesses and artisan makers.

  • Authentic Choices

    We personally read and recommend every book we offer, bringing you the best writing, new and old, from across the island of Ireland and further afield.

  • Doing Our Bit

    We want our boxes to be a joy to receive, but without creating excess waste. We use recyclable packaging and encourage our suppliers to do the same.


"As an ethical financial services organisation in Northern Ireland, we love to support local. And with over 30% of our members being book lovers, we decided to run a World Book Day competition with the fantastic Paperback Down. We couldn't rate Paperback Down highly enough, an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They spent time helping us select and tailor our book prizes, which was followed up with a swift delivery of beautifully packaged bookish treats. It was a joy to see the care and thought that had gone into writing each book review, which we shared with members for the competition. We received a great response which resulted in 4 lucky Harp and Crown members winning a luxury bookish treat of their choice. We would highly recommend supporting this fantastic local business, a must for any book lovers!"
