Answers to questions

What's in the box?

Each box contains one funny book, usually a fiction novel or collection of stories, and 2-3 quality, unique gifts tailored to the book's theme.

What are the books like?

Funny! But seriously ...

The type of humor could be described as tongue-in-cheek, farce, deadpan, satire, or generally silly.

Please note that some books have an "R" rating (like at the movies) and may contain profanity, sexual content, drug use, or other grown-up content.

What are the gifts like?

We source goodies from independent sellers. Stuff you won't find on Amazon (we don't like Amazon). Every effort is made to ensure we're sending quality, eco-conscious, and useful items.

We're also totally realistic that some folks just won't want or need them. That's why we also try to choose items that are easy to re-gift.

Who is this for?

Anyone! Spending time with a new book is one of life's pleasures.

Life also has a lot of bummers, and laughter is great medicine.

Can I send this as a gift?

Absolutely! In fact, we think this makes the perfect gift.

Be sure to add your gift message in your cart before checking out. You can also add a custom greeting card to any box.

  • "My package arrived quickly and made me feel special during a stressful packing time! The treats inside my box were high quality and had to do something with my book, but not enough to give the story away."

  • "I can’t wait to read another from Funny Bone Books and send one to my best friend for Christmas. Obsessed with this bookish pick-me-up!!"

  • "I hate trying to decide what books to read, so the idea of having a book chosen for me by a real human was appealing. The choice that Funny Bone made did not disappoint, and I am eagerly awaiting the next."
