Adopt a book
There’s nothing like the comfort of a good story that you can return to time and time again. If you’re searching for a special gift for the book lover in your life, show them you care with a book adoption from our selection of original classics.
By adopting a book, you directly support our conservation work and help to preserve our collection for everyone, now and in the future. From A Christmas Carol to Little Women, every book adoption helps.
Make them smile with a Christmas Jumper
Whoever you’re shopping for, make them smile with our exclusive festive jumper – perfect for book lovers!
A jolly jumper will inspire more than just some daring fashion choices. Your purchase will help open up our collections for everyone to access and enjoy. Whatever they’re wearing, wherever they are.
Delight and intrigue with exhibition tickets
This winter, transport your loved ones to a world of plots, espionage and treachery. Our five-star rated exhibition, Elizabeth and Mary: Royal Cousins, Rival Queens, will take you back in time to explore the turbulent relationship between Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots, through their own words.
Exhibition tickets will not only inspire your special someone, but will also help support future exhibitions, so we can continue to deliver a sleigh-load of inspiration for everyone.
Make their year with Membership
Looking for a Christmas gift that really lasts? Give your loved ones something unique and sustainable this season - a gift for the imagination. Open the door to a realm of endless possibilities with a British Library Gift Membership.
A membership offers priority booking for our programme of events and talks, free entry for the member and a guest to all our exhibitions, and the (metaphorical) key to our exclusive Members’ Room.
While your gift is firing up their curious mind, it will also help us preserve and share our collection for everyone.
