"Each book is one of a kind," just like your new love interest, wrote Talia, the artisan behind Conduit Press. "It shows them you care enough to find something that totally suits them and their personality."

Talia says that all of her hollow books are crafted from discarded books, which means "you're not only giving back to the earth by keeping something from the landfill (books are actually quite difficult to truly recycle) but you're also keeping the book love alive," she added.

If this earth-friendly and thoughtful gift goes over well, Conduit Press also offers hollowed-out books that hold everything from flasks to ring-bearer pillows -- gifts for every stage in your relationship.
