A lot of people have really strong feelings about Valentine’s Day, some good but others…not so much. For those of us inclined to celebrate with our friends and SO’s, this can be a little stressful. Who wants to give people the clichéd presents of chocolate and flowers?! Flowers die and cause hazardous allergy-driven stuffiness, and chocolates are addictive edibles we’ve all been trying to back off from since Christmas (read: yesterday)!

With that in mind, I’ve put together a little gift guide for the affectionate booklovers out there to help take the panic out of your present search this February. I’ve broken it down by relationship, so there’s a little something for everyone!

For That Person You’ve Been Hanging Out with For Three-and-A-Half Weeks:

A phone case that says “I felt compelled to give you something for Valentine’s Day because we’ve been seeing each other for a couple weeks but we haven’t DTR’d yet”:

Fancy crayons because working on all those adult coloring books you bought during the height of the hype is actually a fun alternative to Netflix-and-Chill:


A bookmark that may or may not be a hint about where you first met:

Meet me in the library

This realistic-looking Kindle case that will get you tons of admiring looks:

For Your Bestie-Who-Is-Actually-Your-Soulmate:

Whether your BFF is near or far, they know the real you and that this mug speaks the truth:
