Really gorgeous illustrated books not just kids books either, I'm considering The Hobbit for MIL and The Handmaids Tale for SIL.

Might buy one for my dad.

OH my god just seen the prices, maybe not blush (am student who's supposed to be saving!)

They're lovely but pricey.

Beautiful. Dh may have something from here.

they are pricey, but special. I'm about to order Animal Farm for DB (its his favourite book of all time)

I daren't look at the Narnia books, they are my favourites and I know it will make me cry.

I got the Hobbit for DH last year.

Dd has had a Fairy Book for birthday and Christmas for the last few years.
She still loves them at 12 and although they are pricey they are an heirloom she can pass on to her own children (or grandchildren even).

Thanks OP, you have solved Christmas for me for the in-laws who have everything smile

In Helmsley there's a bookshop which has a little wall of Folio Society books- still quite pricey, but much better!

I think I may buy the secret garden for me DD, she is too young to appreciate it just now, so I'll look after it for her.

Yes they are truly lovely and they come in slip cases which means they are protected for handing on.
