My darling is a pretty classic Valentine’s Day giver: I can count on flowers and chocolate, plus a smoochero or two. He would never buy me a book because A) he thinks I have too many (he’s very dumb) and B) he wouldn’t know where to start when choosing a book for me. Although I like flowers and chocolates, in a perfect world I would receive literary products as gifts every day of the year. A good solution ? Buy me bookmarks for Valentine’s Day, Valentine!

In the past, the closest I’ve come to using Valentine’s Day bookmarks has been using the real Valentine’s Day as bookmarks. While it’s far from the rarest thing to use as a bookmark, wouldn’t the world be a better place if I (and you, and your darling) had bookmarks inspired by love to keep our place in our favorite romance novel? Or bildungsroman? Or a horror manga? Whatever your love boat is, let’s mark it with a cool bookmark!

Good news for you, I’ve rounded up some of the coolest options, including free printable Valentine’s Day bookmarks, DIY Valentine’s Day bookmarks, and a few you can buy from top Etsy sellers. Some of them are ready to use as is while others will require pencils/paint/colored pencils/whatever you have. If you’re super crafty, just use these options as a starting point and show us the awesome stuff you come up with!

And if you need a valentine, check out this quiz to find out which book should be your valentine. You can also drop by to see other Valentine’s Day gifts for book lovers and be wowed with candles, chocolate and scarves. I can’t even believe how many problems I’m solving here: you’re welcome!
