Think back on your childhood. Likely some of your favorite memories revolve around books. Perhaps your dad had a nightly routine of reading you a book before tucking you into bed. Or, maybe you’d spend your summer afternoons pouring over your favorite stories underneath the big oak tree in your backyard. As you look for gifts for the child in your life, book-related gifts are a great way to continue that tradition. While the books themselves are an obvious baby gift option, it’ll be hard to get baby something he or she doesn’t already have. In that case, go for a unique gift that will complement baby’s books such as bookends. They brighten up the bookshelves in the nursery and are a great way to tie in the nursery’s theme. We’ve compiled our favorite bookends that go with nearly any nursery.
1. Noah’s Ark Bookends
The bible story of Noah’s Ark is a favorite for kids and adults alike. These bookends feature two of the animals brought on to Noah’s Ark, a sheep and a giraffe. Whether baby’s nursery is Noah’s Ark-themed or is just covered in stuffed animals, these Noah’s Ark bookends will find a welcome home on the bookshelves. You could even pair this gift with a set of teddy bears or stuffed lions.
2. Swan Princess Bookends
What do you get a prince or princess who adores fairy tales? How about these tasteful swan princess bookends.
