Who We Are

At GiftLit we believe good books make great gifts. Books are a wonderful gift for many occasions, A book given should stand out and be worthy and enjoyable. GiftLit books are special because we work with many literary experts to carefully choose the best books in each category. If a book doesn't meet our quality standards, you won't find it in our collections.

GiftLit was founded in 2006 by two mothers who wanted high-quality books for their children and for out-of-town friends and family. Under their leadership GiftLit grew its domestic market and was shipping books to all startes. After 7 years of growing the business in 2013 GiftLit moved to Kepler's Bookstore, a 60-year old community bookstore known as an intellectual and cultural hub and for its outstanding literary events, knowledgeable staff, broad selection of books, and its deep ties to the community. During this period GiftLit redoubled it's market, invested in technology, and increased its capability to serve its growing customer base. In 2018 GiftLit became an independent bookstore business with the goal of helping independent bookstores across the country to offer an on-line book subscription gifting capability.

Throughout its 13 year history GiftLit has always valued literacy and believes strongly in the special connection books create between people. GiftLit's goal is to make it easy to confidently give a gift of quality books to people of any age and reading preference that will make this special connection happen.

All customers who believe in the value of independent bookstores can benefit from the combination of GiftLit's strong online ordering, national fulfillment capability and commitment to curated collections. Our staff has deep book knowledge, experience in literary curation, strong ties to the book industry, and a commitment to superior customer service.

For our customers our expertise takes the guesswork out of finding excellent books to give and allows them to confidently give their gift of books by selecting from any of our hand curated collections across all literary categories. We are the only book subscription service to allow both the customer and the recipient the ability to change any book in their subscription. We have invested in this capability because we believe this flexibility is very important to our customers confidence and satisfaction with their gift.
