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.

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.
