Valentine’s Day is two days and I know what you’re thanking: you have absolutely no idea what to get for your bookish valentine. Have no fear, I got you covered with fourteen different ideas.
*disclaimer: I am not sponsored by any of the stores mentioned on this post. These are all things that I use and like or things that I think would be really cool gifts*
1.) A Book
If your bookish valentine is anything like me, the thing that makes them happiest, is adding a brand new book to their shelve. Need some ideas on what book? I got you covered there too.
Is your bookish valentine in to the classics? Get them a copy of William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet. There’s nothing more romantic than giving your bookish Valentine on of the greatest love stories ever written.
So maybe your bookish Valentine isn’t so in to the classics. Maybe she’s more of a hopeless romantic who loves young adult novels.. Then she’d probably love Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, or Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins. Anna, Lola and Isla are a series of companion novels. So you don’t have to read Anna’s story to understand what’s happening in Isla’s story. Another really good story to give your hopeless romantic? I’d very highly recommend To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S I Still Love You by Jenny Han.
Perhaps your bookish Valentine isn’t such a fan of YA but is still the hopeless romantic. If this is the case, I would suggest you go with Borrowed and Blue by Emily Giffin. It’s a bind up of her novel Something Borrowed and it’s sequel Something Blue.
Is your bookish valentine always on the go? Are they always having to carry a lot of books with them because they read through them so quickly? Then the e-reader is a great gift to get your bookish valentine. They’re perfect because your bookish valentine will be able to have access to several books in the palm of their hand while on the move, without being weighed down.
The e-reader I personally (own but rarely) use is the nook simple touch. Literally, the only thing it does is connect to the barnes and noble website to download books, and read books. The particular one I have doesn’t even have a built in light. I don’t even think that model is sold anymore.
If you’re wanting to get your bookish valentine a basic e-reader that just reads books, Barnes and Nobel’s Nook GlowLight Plus looks pretty cool. If you’re looking for something a little cheeper, the kindle e-reader from amazon is pretty similar and it costs a little bit less. Really, both Barnes and Noble and Amazon both have a pretty cool selection of e-readers and surely, you’ll be able to find the right one for your bookish valentine.
3.) Gift Card
By now, I know what you’re thinking. My bookish valentine already has like a million books, I don’t want to get one that’s already on his/her shelf. Or maybe you’re thinking, my bookish valentine already has an e-reader and never uses it. Well fear not, I have an idea for you, gift cards! I guarantee you if you get your bookish valentine a gift card to their favorite book store, it’ll put a huge smile of their face. This way, you know your bookish valentine will be getting just the book they wanted.
4.) Tea or Coffee
If your bookish valentine is anything like me, or any bookish person i’ve come across, there’s nothing that I love more than curling up with a good book and a nice hot cup of tea (0r coffee).
If you’re looking for some cool tea ideas, teavana, has a vareity of different flavors.
Or, if you’re bookish valentine prefers coffee, you can’t go wrong with starbuckscoffee related items.
I hope this was of some help to you!
What did you get your bookish valentine? Or did you gift yourself a book for Valentine’s Day? I’d love to hear all about it!
