For those who enjoy decorating and styling the homes in which they live, decorative bookends are essential home or office accents that bring a room to life and confirm the room projects warmth and style.
It isn’t only the libraries who showcase books! The average home continues to have books as a part of its essential homey touch and a great glimpse into the homeowners themselves. Who doesn’t happen to glance at a bookcase or stack of books in a den and also know that they have glimpsed into the very soul of the reader? Books tell a story and, let’f face it, so do the bookends that hold them.
Gifts for Professionals invites you to journey into our assortment of bookends. In our collection, you are sure to find a gift that both pleases and helps define the book lover. From bookends with Fleur de lis designs, to animal figures, to occupational symbols and more, Gifts for Professionals is ready to help you match the perfect bookends with the not-quite as perfect book lover.
The Quest for the Perfect Pair of Bookends
It’s all in Gifts for Professionals’ quest for the perfect bookend. Of course, our love these decorative accents began with the search for the best occupational bookends. Our customers wanted to decorate their workspace with the symbols of their professions. After we began offering caduceus bookends for doctors and lady justice symbols for lawyers, the net began to widen as we saw so many who love bookends and enjoy choosing bookends that not just define a profession -- although Gifts for Professionals is proud of our assortment -- but also define a personality, a hobby, a dream or an ambition. While the books may tell a story, bookends often tell the book owner’s story... and in wonderful detail.
Take for example, the classic style ornate bookend. Gifts for Professionals offers many ornate style bookends from the Fleur de Lis style bookend to resin intricate design bookends. Perhaps this shows a fancier side to the decor in a home and the even fancier side of its owner. Scroll design style bookends evoke a traditional side to the owner of the bookends and perhaps a love of history.
Then there are sports themes from classic golf bookends to more modern football teams and collegiate style bookends. Gifts for Professionals knows that the collegiate logos are always popular and offer a glimpse into the loyal support these bookends show the owners feel towards their Alma mater or simply their favorite sports and sports teams. As far as being a decorative bookend, its hard to resist adding a touch of a college themed bookend to his man cave or a man’s den.. not to mention a woman’s study! Go Team!
Animal style bookends offer a unique decorative accessory that defines the book collector as a lover of nature, a cat or dog lover, an advocate for a greener environment or simply a hunter! Our ornamental collection of animal themed bookends provide an ocean full of thoughts and looks into the soul of a book owner but most of it must be reduced to the style of animal bookends a book lover chooses. If a cat bookend is in a home, chances are you are sure to see a cat or two wandering the home. If you see a majestic lion, the message is a little less clear. Perhaps your husband loves the majesty of a stunning lion or even thinks of himself as a king of the jungle. Seeing something such as the tusk bookends is sure to signal a hunter is at home while a lighthouse can easily peg a lighthouse lover is in residence.
Decorative bookends tell a less obvious story than the books they hold but the story is more about the owners. When looking for an amazing and unusual gift idea to give a family or a couple celebrating an anniversary, why not consider browsing among the dozens of bookends ready to keep the order on a shelf and the homeowner’s personality on display!
