About IttyBittyBookCo

Sales 4,596
On Etsy since 2012

We could all do with more happy moments 😊

I'm passionate about helping people create more happy moments and share them with others. I believe little things can make a big impact and that's what inspired me to create Itty Bitty Book Co.

Although life is beautiful, we are often surrounded by so much negativity or genuine struggle that's it's hard to see the good things. Little reminders and reasons to smile, especially when sent by a friend can make a big difference in highlighting the positives and making us feel connected.

Itty Bitty Book Co. is proud to have strong environmental and social values (environmental policy can be found on our website). We also volunteer with and donate to Mental Health and Children's Charities, so far over £2000 of profits have been donated in cash, plus thousands more in time and products!

Our son was 3 months old when we quit our jobs to start Itty Bitty Book Co. so it really has been a family business from the start! We still work from home, juggling parenting, a growing business and life constantly but we wouldn't have it any other way!

We feel overwhelmed with gratitude every time we hear our little books are making a positive impact. Every single sale, 5-star review, encouraging comment, recommendation or happy email, means the world!

THANK YOU!!!

🚨 Covid-19 Update, please read 🚨

We are open for business! Here is some extra info for your peace of mind, we understand these are worrying times and we are being extremely careful, whilst trying to keep our little company going 💛

Our studio is in our home, where we have been self-isolating since March 12th. Our only staff member (aside from myself and Al) Hollie is working from her home, sewing our Irish linen products instead of coming into the studio to package up online orders. It's sad to have to clarify this but we are paying her regular wage during this time. She is an absolute asset to our business and a wonderful person whom we will always try and do right by 💛

When we are packaging your online orders we are practising extremely strict hygiene. This includes regular hand washing and disinfecting of our work stations and tools (tape guns, scissors, pens etc). We are going above and beyond the WHO and government recommendations to ensure we can keep running Itty Bitty Book Co with confidence 💛

Frequently asked questions
Is the set of books appropriate for someone who is grieving?

We feel it can be, yes.

The Strength Book was created for my sister in law when her son died. So it is perfect for someone who's lost a loved one. There aren't any quotes which imply everything will be fine or that everything happens for a reason. The style of the book is very gentle and soothing.

But keep in mind the positivity and encouragement books are light-hearted and motivating so the appropriateness of the set will depend heavily on the person and the situation.

Our self-care gift box is a more popular choice for a sympathy gift.
