It’s that time again, bookworms…

Maximum Pop! Books’ Secret Santa is BACK!

And this time, it’s bigger and better than ever.

Where it all began…

Maximum Pop! Books’ Secret Santa began in 2015 and it was a glorious season of giving.

Generous bookworms from across the UK signed up for our festive gift exchange and posted out specially chosen books for their new Secret Santa buddies. It was basically a really wonderful time for all involved.

Wanna see just what we got up to last year? You can catch up on all the festive fun right here.

For 2016, though, we’re going GLOBAL. That’s right –  if you’re happy to post worldwide, we’ll match you up with a YA fan from across the world. Let’s spread the Yuletide love far and wide, people.

Okay, so now you’re interested. But what do you do next? Here’s the low down.

How it works


How to sign up

It’s easy to join MP!’s Secret Santa. All you’ve got to do is fill in this easy peasy form and VOILA – you’re in.

Fill out my online form.

Now what?


You’ll be emailed on 6th December with your bookish partner’s details and then you do what you do best – BUY BOOKS.

All we ask is that you post those babies off  on 15th December to give them the best chance of reaching your new BBFF (that’s Bookish Best Friend Forever, btw) by Christmas.

NOTE: please allow additional time for international deliveries to arrive.

Can I post about it online?

Of course! We’d ask that you don’t reveal confidential information such as people’s addresses, but feel free to share on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #MPSecretSanta.

We want to see which amazing bookstores you bought your gift in, what kind of wrapping paper you’re using and all the other bits of your Secret Santa journey – so let your creative juices flow.

And after that? Well, what more is there left to do but…


Just remember to take a snap of your gift when it arrives and send it to us @maximumpopbooks with #MPSecretSanta! We can’t wait to see what lands on your doorstep.
