Five Valentines Gift Suggestions for the Book Worm

Let’s pretend Valentine’s Day isn’t all about consumerism, though I really don’t have much of a problem with it, along with the other “holidays”.  It’s nice to be remembered or for a day (other than their birthday), make your love one feel special, although under no circumstances should the gift-giving be an obligation, right folks?

If you’ve been following me for awhile now, either my blog or Instagram, you will probably have guessed by now that I love books like most of us here. I also get a high in anything books related, and I’m sure many book-lovers out there will be able to relate.  So I thought of coming up with a list of presents you could buy for your partner/husband or wife who share the same passion as me.

Who said Valentine’s Day is all about cards, flowers and chocolates?

1. If they love poetry, instead of a card, get them a poetry pamphlet like this Ten Poems about Love:

It comes with a handy bookmark too!

And if you think love poetry isn’t their thing, you can also choose poems about cats, bicycles, you name it, they probably have it.

2.  And if you think jewellery is their weakness, I’d say get them this lovely, I want-it-too, Brown and Black Stack Book Necklace:

Isn’t it just the quaintest necklace you’ve ever seen.  I want it too!

3.  For the next item, I know you might think, there’s nothing romantic about giving a mug on Valentine’s Day, not if it’s this! ….

Or this … I also want …

All items from #1-3 are all from The Literary Gift Company.  Also photo credit also go to them.  They’ve got other lovely items in case, my choices isn’t your kind.  Browsing them is a must!

4.  And if you think, I might as well by him/her a book then.  Look no more!  Get them Ivan Turgenev’s book “First Love” with it’s beautiful illustrations from the Folio Society.  I’m currently reading his other book “On the Eve” and I’m really enjoying it.

Then again, there are lots of beautifully illustrated books from the Folio Society, guaranteed that if you choose any book from them, your loved one would certainly feel special.

5.  And lastly, what spells romance other than scented candles?  This scented candle may look anything but romantic, then again, who cares?  Just imagine a candle smelling papery with a hint of vanilla?  I don’t know about you, but I’m sold!

If you want to buy any of the items listed here, just click on their links! 🙂

I’m hoping my husband would read this post in time.  He does read my blog every now and then when he has time, but I have a feeling he’ll miss this and I’m guessing I’m getting flowers and chocolates again, which is absolutely fine of course 😉

Then again, you don’t really have to wait for anyone to buy you any of the items mentioned above.  If you fancy them, buy them yourself!  Treat yourself to a lovely item that will always remind you about your love for books, as if anyone would need to be reminded 😉  I’ve got my eye on that stack of books necklace, its mine! 😉

What about you?

  1. The necklace is gorgeous and I would definitely opt for a candle that smells of old books. No new books for this gal…I am a regular patron to our local second hand book shops – I love, love, love pre-loved books! Some great ideas here…will email a link to hubby (*hint hint*). #BloggerClubUK

  2. Oh as a fellow book worm I love all of these. I will have to leave the computer open on this page as a not so subtle hint for Mr C. Haha. #bloggersclubuk

  3. What a great little selection. I love the ‘go away im reading’ mug. Also like the blogging version personally dont know which one I would pick!

    • Same here! I’m thinking of getting the ‘I’m reading’ one for my husband and the ‘I’m blogging one for myself.

  4. Tori Gabriel

    I am so tempted by the “go away, I’m blogging” mug. Also that necklace is so cute!

  5. So many great ideas. I loveeee the Stack Book Necklace. – As a book worm myself I must get one 🙂

    • It’s lovely isn’t it? That’s certainly a must-have for any baklava 🙂 Or even just one who loves accessories 😉

  6. Becky @ 3princesses and 1 dude

    Love the ‘Go Away I’m Blogging’ mug!! I may have to tell the hubster about it!

  8. Becky, Cuddle Fairy

    Ah these are all really lovely choices! I love the chain with the stack of books on it. It’s nice to buy something the person will really enjoy rather than the standard Valentine’s Day gifts! Thanks so much for linking up with #bloggerclubuk x

    • Yes. After all, who said Valentine’s Day is all about chocolates and flowers? 😉 Although of course there’s nothing wrong with that too 🙂 x
