February 14 is approaching, and it’s time to start shopping for your Valentine. There are plenty of mixed feelings about the holiday, but trust that I am not referring to a single Boyfriend or Girlfriend when I suggest you stock up. Your Valentine might be a dear friend, a partner in a romantic relationship, or your precious self. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being your own soulmate, buying yourself flowers, or picking out some bookish romance swag to make yourself smile! Are you looking for a reminder of the book boyfriend you adore reading about? Something to gift the book lover in your life? Something spicy to enjoy on your own? Stickers, prints, candles, and shirts…there really is something for everyone if you know where to look.
Below I’ve gathered some romantic things that truly run the gamut. From saucy nods in the direction of explicit romance to chaste references to literary couples (hand flex, anyone?), there are trinkets and trophies to celebrate every kind of Valentine you want to honor. In the northern hemisphere, February is dark, cold, and bleak. Why not break up the monotony with some happy mail? Read on to discover your next purchase, while they last.
