Unique Gifts For Book Lovers

Do you want to make a book lover happy?Then giving them unique bookends will be your right choice.

The decorative bookends not only add class and style but also make great conversation starters with the various patterns and materials used to craft them.

My father was a booklover and had an expansive library with books on varied topics.He loved to use different bookends to keep his favorite books near by on his office table and bedside table .The books were changed according to his current reading list .

My task of finding a gift for him was made easy when I came across the unique bookends available on amazon.I am sharing here some of the unusual designs I found that you can also use to bring the look of joy and happiness on the face of one who adores books.

Bookends That Look Like Library Books - Got deceived?

They have gold paint where the “pages” of the books would be, to give them a gilt look and add to the design.

The wooden bookcase will look great in dens or libraries.
