Required Reading Box Set

You remember the first day of school. Sitting excitedly at your desk, wearing your best new outfit, catching up with friends. Waiting for the teacher to call the class to attention. 


The teacher writes her name on the chalkboard and begins the school year by handing out the syllabus. Your eyes eagerly scan the page until you find what you’re looking for: the Required Reading list. 


Your guide to the reading adventures that you will take in the new school year. A list that will undoubtedly introduce you to new authors and stories that will leave a lasting impact. I can still remember how I felt the first time I finished The Picture of Dorian Gray and Cold Sassy Tree. Two books I would not have read without the guidance of Required Reading. Isn’t that part of the fun?


We offer a new gift set that aims to capture that first day of school feeling: the Required Reading Box


The perfect gift for the book lover in your life - or as a treat for yourself - the Required Reading Box includes six 2 oz candles selected at random from our Banned Books and Nostalgia collections. Each candle is chosen by the North Ave Candles crew - your candle “teachers” - to give your box variety and deliver that sense of joy when you discover something new and unexpected. 


All candles in your personalized collection have our signature “library card” style label - this is Required Reading after all! 


Your box also contains a “vintage library card” style bookmark, designed and printed by theBird+theBeard


Tea lovers can upgrade their box to include two samples of 100% organic tea from Leaf & Twig. One sample will be caffeinated, the other decaf. Each sample should make two cups of tea. The loose-leaf teas are housed in glass vials for that “straight from the apothecary” look. (tea samples +$5.50)


The Required Reading Box contains everything that you - or the bookworm in your life - need to take a cozy evening with your favorite book to the next level.
