What better way to start Valentine’s Day than to peruse 200 years of Pride and Prejudice book covers…
Valentine’s day is looming and many of us still haven’t bought our significant others (or ourselves) gifts to celebrate this day of love. If your other half is a book-lover or if you are a book-lover and want to drop hints for the perfect present, or buy yourself something special, then look no further than our top five Valentine’s day gift guide for book-lovers.
1. A trip to Paris to stay at Le Pavillon des Lettres.
Not only will you spend time in the City of Love but you will stay in Paris’ first literary inspired hotel; where each of the 26 rooms reflect the works of the author after which it is named, with writers ranging from Hans Christian Anderson to Emile Zola.
2. Literary themed clothes/accessories.
Just a small selection that we’d like to add to our wardrobe…
Books and chocolate: the perfect combination!
4. Literary pieces for the home
5. Books, lots of glorious books!
You can never go wrong with books! If you’re stuck for what book to buy then The Guardian asks What are the best books for Valentine’s Day?
If you have any more suggestions then we’d love to hear them.
