Best Bookish Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Literary Lovers

Whether you’re shopping for your sweetie who loves reading as much as you do – or making a wish list for your sweetie to buy YOU gifts – or shopping for your bestie for Galentine’s Day, there are plenty of romantic bookish gifts to satisfy this Valentine’s Day. Here’s a look at my picks for the Best Bookish Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Literary Lovers.

Love Notes

Nothing says I love you like a journal that literally says, “I love you.” And, okay, none of these say that exactly, but the message sure comes across. These beautiful hand-lettered, hand-made journals are practically a work of art – but they’re also insanely practical, especially since you get to choose what you want for the inside pages. The options include blank, lined, graph or dotted pages, a to do list template (my personal favorite), or even a planner for 2018.

These are some of my favorite romantic designs:

Love Notes – Part 2

What good is a journal without something to write with? I am a huge fan of all the pencil sets from Icey Designs (she has some great nerdy/bookish sets), but for Valentine’s Day, one of these romantic, love-themed sets is just perfect:

Love Socks

There’s that song, “I’ve got my love to keep me warm” … but sometimes, it’s REALLY cold out. SO keep your toesies warm in a pair of perfectly nerdy socks that are also romantic.

Depending on your fandom preferences, try the Star Wars, ACOTAR, or Book Boyfriend socks.

You can use the code AUTUMN15 to save 15% on any orders from Enchanted Fandom.

Love Scents

Candles are king these days when it comes to bookish merch, and while there are TONS you can choose from, here are my picks for just a few that would make a perfect Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day) gift.

From Stubtail Candle Co, this Chapter 55 candle is inspired by the sexiest scene in Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Mist and Fury. Light this up to inspire a little extra passion. NOVELNOVICE saves you 10% on any Stubtail Candle Co order.

You can also cut right to the chase with the Book Boyfriend and Book Girlfriend candles from Flickering Tales. They both smell amazing, and you can gift just one or a set of both! KNOXDIVER10 will save you 10% on anything in their shop!

And finally, Three Knocks Candles has the perfect set for your Galentine’s Day needs – four candles, all inspired by some of our favorite gal pals. She also has a Love Potion candle of the month that is an adorable pink and white color in a mini mason jar mug, that smells like strawberries, vanilla, and cinnamon. YUM!

The Galentine’s Day set and Love Potion candle will be available starting February 1st.  PAPERRDOLLS15 will save you on any Three Knocks order.

Love Jewels

Let’s face it, you can’t go wrong with jewelry as a gift. But if you want something chic and beautiful that’s also bookish, look no further than Elissa J. Designs. She has plenty of designs inspired by books and other assorted fandoms, but if you want a more love-centric piece, try one of these:

For some truly unique pieces, I can’t recommend Aspiring Artista more highly. Her key pendants (and bookmarks and tea infusers) are just stunning, and if she doesn’t have what you want in stock, she is always happy to put together a truly custom piece at an affordable price. For some perfect Valentine’s Day themed pieces, check out these:

Love Treats

It’s not really Valentine’s Day without candy, right? What better way to celebrate both love and your love of books than with CHOCOLATE BOOKS!

My husband actually bought some of these from Nerdy Noms for our anniversary this past weekend (he planned a whole vintage bookshop day for us to celebrate), and they are delicious. They come in a variety of flavors, and are super affordable. Plus, there are other fun nerdy candies available, as well!
