The Omnivore Case - Curated by Nina

Before opening Bookends & Beginnings, owner Nina Barrett trained as a professional chef and won two James Beard Awards for her radio series on food anxiety called “Fear of Frying.” Her Omnivore Case is intended to help you cook more from scratch, pay attention to seasonality, explore foods and techniques that you might not otherwise try, and just generally become a better home cook. The cases include cookbooks, books about specific foods or techniques, and exceptionally wonderful writing about food, along with herbs, condiments, nibbles, gadgets, and other treats to enhance your foodie enjoyment! Plus you get one secret recipe from Nina’s home recipe journal!

The Genius Case - Curated by Josiah

The Genius Case has been curated to inspire intellect, foster learning, and keep that youthful spirit of curiosity ageless. You’ll receive a hand-picked assortment of items that will bring out your inner genius: brain teasing puzzles, witty gifts, challenging word games, a riddle handwritten by Josiah meant to test your literary mettle, and pocket-size books on a wide range of subjects like Oxford’s Very Short Introduction series that will slowly transform you into a “know-it-all.”

The Baby Bookworm Case - Curated by Brooke

This case is a perfect gift for new parents, and a great way to start instilling a lifelong love of reading. Curated for ages 0-2 years, the case will feature an assortment of engaging board books and Indestructibles, as well as a onesie or t-shirt in the appropriate size. Other items may include literary baby socks, plush toys, or other fun goodies. It’s never too early to love books!

The Creativity Case - Curated by Lotte

Looking to spark your creativity? Whether you’re in a creative career industry or you’re looking to focus your hobbies, this BookCase will get your juices flowing. The featured book might be a creative journal, a book about the arts, or advice for creatives, and we’ll also include writing instruments, cards by local and famous artists, some fun games and accessories for when you’re not creating, and a seasonal creativity prompt! 

The Case-by-Case

If you just want books, this is the box for you. You or your designated recipient will receive a monthly hardcover or paperback based on your preferences! You can choose nonfiction, fiction, or a mix of both and you’ll tell us a bit about your interests so we can send you the perfect book! This box will go out monthly or bi-monthly as opposed to the quarterly cases and so is priced differently.
