Give the gift of C.H.I.P.s this holiday season!

Sometimes buying a gift for a book lover can be a minefield. What if you misread his/her tastes? What if he/she hates that author. Well, consider Coach House Books your personal minesweeper. (Or even, if you prefer, your own HeroRAT!) This holiday season, take it easy and give the gift of Coach House to that book lover on your list!

The C.H.I.P. (Coach House Important Person) program is like a Coach House subscription. For a low fee of just $10 a month, C.H.I.P.s receive six books of their choice (in both print and electronic editions), which Coach House sends out in semi-annual shipments. But that's not all! C.H.I.P.s receive additional benefits like:

  • 15% off any additional book orders
  • four Coach House commemorative pins
  • a dazzling array of Coach House ephemera and postcards
  • a free tour of the Coach House premises*
  • free shipping (and no tax) on your C.H.I.P.s books
  • both spring and fall catalogues mailed to you
  • a totally boss Coach House VIP card that entitles you to other special offers throughout the year
  • You'll also be listed on the Coach House website in an esteemed spot of honour, with all our other C.H.I.P.s.

*We'll schedule a couple 'C.H.I.P. tour days' throughout the year.

And, until December 31, if you buy a gift C.H.I.P. membership for a friend, you (as the gift-giver) receive 25% off your next Coach House purchase!

You can pay monthly, or save $10 (and receive one mystery book!) when you pay for the year in advance. For information on how to become a C.H.I.P. or how to buy a gift C.H.I.P. membership, contact us at
