One of the problems with the number of interesting, unique and useful bookends is that you need them on your shelf. But if you have space — or you’re willing to make room or buy another bookshelf — you’ll find there’s no shortage of options to suit your style. The very few bookends I own are either stone (I have a couple of cool onyx pieces) or I found in antiques (I have a set of brass books and vintage owls). But if I’m going to add more bookends to my life, you better believe I’ll pick some cute animal bookends.

There are so many kinds of animal bookends out there, no matter what your favorite animal is, you’ll find something. I have a collection of various animal bookends, including types of animals and bookends. Acrylic and wooden bookends, among many other materials.

The benefits of animal bookends? You don’t need to feed, and if you choose something a little (or a lot) unique, you can tell everyone you have a pet (fill in the blanks here).

Let’s take a look at some cute bio-functional bookends.

Various animal bookends

I am absolutely fascinated by these acrylic cat bookends. I love this red option, but the orange option is also pretty. Set for $37, or buy individually for $31.

Set of wooden vintage owl bookends

A word of caution: There is only one set of these vintage owl bookends. But when looking for some great owl bookends, several others are available for the same price through different sellers. So if you love them, know you can easily find these lovely guys. $30.

Choose whether you want a giraffe bookend on the left or right (or, you know, splurge on both). $35 each.

Set of two cute fox bookends

These fox bookends are so cute – who cares if they’re “for” a nursery? Sure, they’ll be cute there, but the rules are bogus, so why not get some for your “grown up” library? $60.

Brightly colored statue in the shape of a bulldog.

This was advertised as a “statue” and a possible bookend, so we chose the former. How fun is this bulldog bookend? You get one, but maybe you just need one. If you want one set, get two. $140 – It’s an investment, but it’s also an art.

I love these ceramic bear bookends. So many colors! Absolutely heavy! $25 each.
