This Valentine's Day, express your love in a unique and thoughtful way with a bookish-themed gift. Not only do these presents capture the joy of reading, but they also offer a personal touch that shows you really know your sweetheart's tastes. Here are five creative ideas that are sure to touch the heart of your book-loving partner
1. DIY Blind Date with a Book: Add an element of surprise to your gift-giving with a DIY blind date with a book. Choose a mystery book and wrap it in brown paper, describing it only with a few key words or phrases. This creates an air of mystery and makes the experience of unwrapping the gift a fun adventure. Don't forget to choose a book that aligns with your partner's interests or one that you think they might enjoy.
2. Victorian Style Folding Love Puzzle Cards: Bring back the romance of the Victorian era with these intricately designed puzzle cards. Each card folds out to reveal a heartfelt message. Pair this with a classic Victorian novel for a truly nostalgic gift.
3. Well Read Co's Beauty in the Common Things Book-bag: This stylish and functional book-bag is perfect for carrying around their favourite reads. With a beautiful design and quote that celebrates the beauty of everyday life, it's a gift that's both practical and inspirational.
4. Hand-Dried Flower Bouquet: Flowers are a classic Valentine's Day gift, but why not put a twist on this tradition? A hand-dried flower bouquet lasts much longer than fresh flowers, and it can serve as a lovely decoration. If you know your partner's favourite novel, choose flowers that match the book's theme or setting for an extra thoughtful touch.
5. Literary-Themed Tea: Many book lovers enjoy a warm drink while they read. Consider gifting a selection of teas inspired by classic literature. For example, you could find blends named after famous authors or ones designed to evoke the atmosphere of beloved books.
Remember, the best gifts come from the heart. Don't be afraid to add your own personal touch to these suggestions to create a Valentine's Day present that your loved one will treasure.
