Lovereading recommends you take a leaf out of the book of Latin lovers. The Catalans in Barcelona celebrate their Valentine's Day by exchanging gifts with their sweethearts. The men give their 'novias' a rose and the women give their 'novios' a book.

By the end of the day, some four million roses and 400,000 books will have been bought in the name of love. Over half of the total yearly book sales in Catalonia take place on this occasion.
