The Best Literary Valentine’s Day Gifts for Book Lovers


What I Love About You by Me

The petite What I Love About You by Me book makes it easy to express yourself with fill-in-the-blank lines describing your feelings for a loved one. It’s a unique personalized gift that would be especially meaningful for someone who thrives on words of affirmation and/or for time spent apart.

Little Letters of Love: Keep It Short and Sweet (I Love You Gifts, Gifts for Girlfriends and Boyfriends) 

Little Letters of Love are quick and easy to write a short message and deliver it. This book includes 75 little letters that fold into little envelopes and provide a quick “thinking of you.” It’s a fast way to put a smile on someone’s face.

The Truth About Love

The Truth About Love is a curated collection of 380+ quotes about love, from Victor Hugo, Jane Austen, and Shakespeare, and contemporary figures including Nora Ephron, John Green, Margaret Atwood, and more! Its pretty design and foil-stamped cover make it a dazzling gift for your valentine.

Love Letters of Great Men

Do you remember when Carrie Bradshaw read Love Letters of Great Men in the Sex and the City movie? I immediately bought it after seeing the movie. It’s an anthology of romantic love letters written by leading male historical figures: Ludwig van Beethoven, Napolean BonaparteRobert Browning, Lord Byron, Winston Churchill, Mark Twain, Oliver Cromwell, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Victor Hugo, James Joyce, Franz Kafka and more. The classic literature-loving woman in your life will appreciate this book.

Letters to My Love: Write Now. Read Later. Treasure Forever.

Letters to My Love was an Oprah’s Favorite Things Pick and has sold more than two million copies. Give your loved one the old-fashioned beauty of a handwritten letter. This book contained twelve letters to be opened in the future like a time capsule, with prompts like, “when we first met” and “what I love about us.” I wish I knew about this book when I was engaged!
