It’s Valentine’s Day! What did you get for your special someone? While chocolate and flowers are always great options, they can feel a little impersonal. This year, show your partner how well you know them by getting something that reflects their interests. If your bae’s a book-lover, then we have suggestions (that aren’t just books or gift cards to buy books) for you!

Book Charm— $11.20-$13.31

You can get any book cover on these charms. The perfect addition to a book-lover’s charm bracelet, or easily swap out any other charm on a chain for a bookish necklace.

Litograph shirts— $34

See if you can find your book-loving bae’s favorite book in this extensive collection. Each shirt contains the entire text, wrapped to create an image from the book. T-shirts not your partner’s thing? The designs are also available as posters, totes, blankets, and pillows. You can even get a scarf with just the words, no design.

Does your book-loving bae need to read with one hand, or better yet, hands free? One of these may be the solution. Now they won’t need to stop reading to cook or fold laundry, which means one less excuse to procrastinate. Bonus: some of these are adjustable. Uncomfortable reading positions begone!

While print books do have their advantages, the convenience of a kindle or other e-reader is unbeatable. If your sweetheart has jumped on the ebook train, then a case for their e-reader would make a great gift. Available in a variety of colors and patterns, you can find something that really shows off their style. Make sure to check what model of e-reader they’re using before you shop!
