Gifts for Book Lovers Who Are in Love
1. Paper Roses
A bouquet of roses is perhaps the most popular Valentine’s Day gift. But who says they need to be red?
Give your partner a bouquet of six paper roses made from old books. These roses won’t wilt.
Just keep in mind that all the roses are made by hand and to order, so it can take around 7 to 10 business days until they’re ready to be sent.
2. Scented candle
I’m a huge fan of the scented candles by EverAfterCandle. And this romantic pink handmade candle is sure to fill the air with the scent of love. Which in this case is pink champagne and swooning.
Let your partner know they’re the love interest in your story.
3. The Book Lover's Cookbook
Does your partner love to read & cook? Then this cook book filled with literary recipes is the ultimate Valentine’s day gift!
Among the recipes, you can find Jo’s Best Omelet from Little Women, Ichabod’s Slapjacks from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Turkish Delight from The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrode, and many more delicious foods.
4. Personalized Book Necklace
Jewelry always makes a great Valentine’s gift. However, for a literary Valentine’s gift, this personalized book necklace is perfect.
The necklace is custom made. You can choose the length of the chain, the color combination (black with gold, silver, or copper), and the initials to be put on the cover.
5. Personalized Bookmark
As a bookworm, you can never have enough bookmarks. Surprise your SO with a personalized bookmark that showcases your love. You can choose to add initials, a name, a logo, a name and logo, or a quotation.
These bookmarks are made from leather and are naturally colored with vegetable tanning. It’s 6.69 inches in length, 1.18 inches in with. The colors you can choose from are: dark brown, brown, navy blue, and red wine.
I personally feel the dark brown is a bit too dark—the writing is more difficult to see there. But that’s all up to you, of course.
6. Magnetic bookmark
On a budget, but still want to get a Valentine’s Day gift for the book nerd in your life? Then this bouquet of roses in the form of a magnetic bookmark is the perfect gift. It’s cute, romantic, and your partner can use it to mark their pages.
7. The Pride & Prejudice Art
What’s more romantic than having an art print from one of the most romantic stories of all time? This text art consist of the actual writing from Pride & Prejudice, forming the shapes of Elizabeth and Darcy.
But that’s not all! You can add your own hidden message to the print.
How cute is it that among those words, there’s a personal message from you to your partner?
It’s available in the following sizes: 8″x10″, 11″x14″ & 16″x20”. The frame doesn’t come with the print, so you’d have to get one yourself.
8. Bookish Valentine’s Day Card
Ultimately, it’s not the gifts that matter, but the sentiment. It’s about expressing your love.
And nothing says “I love you” more than admitting you love the person more than books (if you and your partner are both book lovers in love).
9. Romeo & Juliet Glass
Sure, their love was tragic, but it was without a doubt an iconic romance.
This iconic 11 oz rocks glass has a passage from the famous garden scene, along with a red dagger icon. It also showcases artwork from the 1597 first printing.
