It's nearly Valentine's Day, which means it's time to start planning how you're going to treat your special someone. No matter what you've got in store for them, one thing's for certain: you need a great card — preferably a great literary Valentine's Day card.

Remember the days of bringing cards for everyone in elementary school? Or the excitement of sending someone an anonymous candy-gram? No matter how you feel about the holiday, Valentine's Day cards are a wonderful way to light up someone's day. Whether you've been together for decades, or you just spotted them on the other side of the library and fell head over hells, putting your feelings in a card is a gesture that everyone can appreciate.

It's even more fun and meaningful to put a personal touch on the card. Give your SO a card that pays homage to one of their favorite books, or use the writing of authors more eloquent than yourself to tell them how you really feel. And remember, it's Valentine's Day, so you have a full license to be cheesy.
