Unboxing Memories: A Mother-Daughter Book Club Experience

A group of six diverse women laughing and embracing, sharing a joyful moment together.

Mother-daughter relationships are super special in our book, and to be honest, we often don’t get enough quality time with our mothers—and yes, there are plenty of Moms out there who feel they don’t get enough quality time with their daughters. So … drum roll … it is time to start a Mother-Daughter Book Club! We love creating traditions that strengthen bonds, spark conversations, and build memories.

With Mother's Day just around the corner, there's a fabulous opportunity to start a tradition that not only celebrates this special bond but also encourages everyone to read. As far as we are concerned, starting a mother-daughter book club with a subscription box is the ultimate way to get started. Remember, it's more than just reading together; it's about creating a shared journey of discovery, understanding, and, most of all, that important connection.

Starting a Mother-Daughter Book Club

We have a fabulous blog on how to start a book club, but here are a few basics to get you going!

The Inner Circle

So, now that we have you excited, it's time to decide who to invite. Are you going to keep your book club close and intimate—just the two of you? Or perhaps you would like to start a book club with mother-daughter pairs from your extended family or even close friends.

Where and When?

This may seem obvious but don’t leave your book club meetings to chance. It’s all about sustaining the momentum and keeping the anticipation alive! We all love having something special to look forward to! Decide on a regular meeting time—it could be weekly, bi-weekly or monthly!

And now for the where! The options are endless, but we highly recommend meeting outside your homes. There are far fewer distractions, and a change of scenery is always good for the soul—especially when it incorporates a great cup of coffee and a fabulous slice of cake, or that crisp glass of wine along with a meal you didn’t have to prepare!

Book Club Subscription Box

A book club subscription box is a delightful way to kickstart your mother-daughter book club, and we have just the thing!

If you’re looking to start a book club with your mother or even your grandmother, our adult book subscription boxes are the way to go!

Beyond Average Book Clubs

Our adult book boxes turn each delivery into an exciting event with a whimsically packaged, book-shaped box that promises a birthday-like surprise every month. But the real magic lies inside! Alongside a newly released novel, you will receive 3 to 5 gifts with corresponding page numbers, prompting you to open them at just the right time! Bringing books to life, one box at a time!

Exclusive Extras

Each box is packed with extras that take your reading adventure to the next level. From a Book Club Kit filled with related activities and information to beautifully designed bookmarks and quote cards. Plus, select editions come with a special touch, like bookplates signed by the author.

Flexible Subscription Options

We have flexible subscription options ranging from month-to-month to 3, 6, or 12-month plans!

But mother-daughter book clubs aren’t just for adults. Starting a book club with your young adult or tween daughter is a wonderful way to spend time together. It's about having fun and connecting with each other—building memories one box at a time!

Our tween boxes are guaranteed to bring the two of you closer together with some quality one-on-one time. Why not take turns reading aloud together? Or try and guess the surprise gifts! Our tween box comes with a whole lot more, ensuring your time together will be memorable!

Creating Memorable Book Discussions

Discussions are the heart of any book club. They are fabulous opportunities for sharing perspectives, deepening understanding, and bonding over shared experiences. We always enjoy sharing our thoughts, and it is one of the best ways to get to know each other on a different level. You may just be surprised by the insights your mother or daughter comes up with!

You can prepare a few open-ended questions to guide the conversation, but it’s important to let the discussion flow naturally. We find it invaluable when each member shares their thoughts and feelings about the book, focusing on themes, characters, and moments that stood out.

Engaging Mother-Daughter Activities

Besides those wonderful book club discussions, there are so many brilliant bookish activities you can do together. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Bookish Crafts

Who doesn’t love bookish crafts? TikTok, YouTube and Pinterest are full of inspiration and ideas! It's a fantastic way to do something fun and creative together. From creating bookmarks and quote cards through to designing your own book covers, you’re bound to find an activity you both will enjoy.

Family Stories

In our recent blog, From Memories to Memoirs: Writing Your Life Story, we chatted about writing memoirs. Family stories can easily be lost. Why not write a book together capturing all those incredible shared stories? It will be such fun to see the same story told from a different perspective!


Starting a mother-daughter book club with a subscription box is a fabulous way to celebrate the special connection mothers and daughters have. Nothing quite says “I love you” quite like spending time together.

It is an opportunity to have loads of bookish fun combined with plenty of laughter while creating awesome memories together. Our book boxes will be the cherry on top!Here's to the stories you'll discover and the memories you'll create—happy reading!
