News flash, people. Valentine’s Day – the annual day of love – is coming around faster than one of Cupid’s wind-whistling arrows. This time, be prepared with a gift that trumps chocolates, beats bubbly, and lasts longer than that fancy restaurant dinner. Make a book.
And here’s another newsflash – even if you don’t have a sweetheart this particular Valentine’s Day, you do have people in your life you love and a book that honors them (or, in the case of some of the books below, honors their love) is a heartfelt gift that they’ll treasure.
Just keep our Valentine’s Day shipping deadlines in mind and take a look at the books below for a little inspiration.
Adventures of Love – This fun collage of moments and mementos captures the heart.
Mes Amours – a Dutch photographer creates a touching homage to his family.
Shirley’s 2013 – a Weekly Planner made with photographs of vintage photos featuring one very classy couple (we love the his and hers Indian motorcycles!).
Dear Kate, – Letters from a sailor … the beginning of a lifelong romance. Simple idea done beautifully in honor of the author’s parents. Swoon!
For all the hearts – Love is everywhere if you look around. This author did and made a beautiful book of “found hearts” for her three boys.
Okay, now get to it and make a book that’s sure to win hearts all around.
