Animal bookends | Serena + LilyIf there’s one awesome baby gift for any kid at all anywhere, it’s a bunch of books to start his library. Which means if there’s one more awesome baby gift, it’s going to be a sturdy bookend that does more than just sit there and look pretty on the shelf. Or in this case, look fierce.

The weighted faux leather animal bookends at Serena + Lily come in all sorts of fun animals, but I think the dinosaur bookend is my favorite. At his height he’d be perfect for holding up all those palm-sized board books the new mom will be getting.

you might want to let him think he’ll be holding up encyclopedias.
