Last Minute Holiday Guide

Hello readers!

Time has no meaning this year, but the holidays are upon us! Hanukkah is in full swing, Christmas is just around the corner, the Solstice is creeping closer, and there are something like 20 more December holidays that are being celebrated world wide this month.

For the ones that you might celebrate that involve gift giving, our Holiday Staff Picks (found here) are mostly ON OUR SHELVES NOW, which means there’s no waiting for orders that might or might not make it in time. We’ve got something for everyone, for all ages, so be sure to check out the list if you need one more book to complete your holiday shopping list!

If you’re looking for smaller things, we’ve got a whole range of stocking stuffers (found here) that you can email us (at info@oldfirehousebooks.com) about adding to your order! There are more than just those featured in the post–we’ve got bookmarks and puzzles and way more socks, t-shirts and journals and calendars. We’re happy to email you pictures so you can browse without browsing for the last minute touches that will make your holiday a bit brighter.

And you can always round out your hard-to-shop-for friends by grabbing an online gift code! Just like a physical gift card, they can be purchased in any amount (here) and never expire. But you don’t have to worry about the mail taking too long! The codes can be emailed or you can print them and put them in a lovely card. And your friend or family member who loves books but who is picky about their to-be-read list is good to go to get books later! A gift that keeps on giving!

Speaking of gifts that keep on giving, surprise the you or your friend of the future with a pre-order! Any book that’s not out yet can be pre-ordered and will come with a nifty 15% discount if you order it two weeks before its release date. Check out a list of our most highly anticipated pre-orders here, and give your friend a present that will have them thinking fondly of you in March. Or May. Or…whenever.

If you’re looking for more gift ideas, we encourage you to check out our blog and our website, but please be aware that we are working as fast as we can. We can’t guarantee that any book you order that we don’t have on the shelf will make it in time for Christmas (the post office and the printing presses are working as fast as they can, too). We’re working through our mountain of web orders, and we are so grateful for your patience and your support. Thanks for ordering your gifts from us and keeping us in business! We’re doing everything we can to get your orders to you in time. Elliot is doing extra delivery days (Tues/Thurs/Sat and Christmas Eve), so that’s a fast way to get your books quickly! And curbside is still available from 10am to 2pm on weekdays and 10am to 4pm on weekends.

Thanks for making this holiday season insanely wonderful, even though our doors are closed and it looks so different from normal holiday seasons. Stay safe out there; Zoom your family for stocking reveals and Christmas caroling; light candles in the windows (responsibly!) to share some brightness with your neighbors. Keep yourselves healthy and safe and have the happiest possibly December you can manage this year.

Happy reading!
