12 Poems to Inspire: Inspirational Poetry Gift Books

The Twelve Poems to Inspire Series is a range of inspirational poetry gift books for festivals like Valentine’s and Mother’s Day and life occasions, like bereavement or becoming a parent.

The books contain award-winning inspirational poetry that is never over-sweet, sickly or sentimental, but always encourages the reader to rejoice in the human capacity for renewal and uplift, whatever the occasion.

Pictures and photographs from contemporary artists illustrate the poems, making each a beautiful, unique and meaningful gift.

Give Poetry Instead

A movement online — #givepoetryinstead — encourages people to send poetry gift books like these instead of a card.

One of these short books–in ebook, audio, or print format–certainly provides a much more distinctive message than a shop-bought greeting card. It will give ongoing pleasure and illumination long after a card would be thrown away.

Of course, you can also send the books as gifts with an accompanying card.

  • If you would like to send a signed print book (hardback or paperback is available) with a special dedication from me, just email us at info@ornaross.com to arrange. Ideally, leave three weeks for printing, signing and sending, depending on where you live in the world.
  • If you need something last minute, an ebook or audiobook with an email message from the poet is equally thoughtful and memorable.

Inspirational poetry gift books are the gift that keep on giving.
