Joy to the Squirrel!

The Fur is Come...

By Coach House Date: November 22, 2017

♫ Joy to the Squirrel! 
The Fur has come
Let Earth receive their Nuts!
Let every Squirrel
prepare their Den
And hibernate 'till Spring
And hibernate 'till Spring
And hibernate 'till Spring ♫

It's that time of year again, so let us help guide you through the holidays with as much grace as possible while wearing a parka. We'll focus on your shopping list, so you can focus on the important stuff like eggnog and battling seasonal depression.

We've got book bundles, free shipping*, gift wrapping (in fancy-schmancy press sheets that are fashionable and environmentally friendly), as well as Squirrel Selects™ – personal shopping services to ensure that you don't gift Grandma the same Giller prize-nominated title as three other people again this year. Read on, dear friends, and let our holiday CHeer be the reason for your season.

* On letter mail and regular parcels within Canada.

From now until December 20th, send us a description of your giftee using this online form, or email Include as many details as you think will help our squirrely pals choose the best book for them – their favourite colour, the last book they read and enjoyed, the last book they read and hated, their astrological sign, you get the picture. Speaking of which, send us a picture too, and we'll add it to our scrapbook of happy people who got just what they wanted.
