We use both / neither / either + noun for two things.
 

If you are looking at two books you can say:
 

 •  Both books are very good. (= The two books)
 
 •  Neither book is expensive. (= Not the first book. Not the second book.)
 
 •  Either book would be a good present. (= The two books would be good as presents.)
 

If the subject is understood you can use both / neither / either without a noun:
 

 •  A: Do you want potatoes or chips?
 
     B: Either. I don’t mind.
 
 •  A: Which shirt do you like?
 
     B: Both look good.
