In case you’re stuck for Valentine’s gifts for the book worm in your life, I have included the following for your perusal. Please feel free to buy any of these for me. My boyfriend
doesn’t “believe in” Valentine’s day, so I won’t be getting presents!
I’m not sure who really goes for the crude humour of Valentine’s jokes (you know, let’s try a different position, ha ha he does the ironing) but people must because every year the shops are infested with them. Take a stand with this sophisticated card/book. Or get creative. Make your own!
Splash out on the book lover in your life and get them the Penguin Great Loves Series. Penguin are offering a 20% discount when you buy the complete set from them, so you get 20 books for £79.80. And with titles like Deviant Love, Forbidden Fruit, The Seducer’s Diary and Bonjour Tristesse how could you not? If you could afford to that is…
So if, like me, you find yourself three weeks from pay day and having to face up to your own little budget deficiet (my father’s and boyfriend’s birthdays both in February) I don’t think it gets much cuter than this little bird book . A thoughtful gift for anyone like me who ends up using their bus ticket to keep their page. It will be treasured for years.
Another great budget find, which will make any Harry Potter geek’s day is this amazing golden snitch necklace which I discovered on Etsy last night. It costs about £10.2o and it is pretty much guarantueed that they will be pleasantly surprised! I have never seen a necklace like this before and think it is amazing.
Want to demonstrate your commitment but without the pressure or cost of an engagment ring and wedding? Why not give this 100 year diary to show you’re in it for the long haul. You could even include some sickeningly soppy note to that effect. Slushy love aside I think that this would make a cool and unusual Valentine’s present. It has world maps, maps of the body, notes for every season of your life. It’s an autobiography in the making!
Finally, for Wuthering Heights fans like me there is this amazing Wild Heather Scented candle which will undoubtedly take you back to the days when you ran wild with Heathcliff before you sold out and were cooped up on The Grange with the bloodless Lintons. Feel free to buy this for me. I will graciously accept bulk deliveries.
