Santa's Lap: Landmark Bookends

gherkin_bookend.jpg Every day until Christmas the Londonist team will be pointing you in the direction of a Christmas present that (with a bit of luck) you won't already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we'll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings...

If you or someone you know is one of those people who ran out of bookshelf space long ago, and is now stacking books on any available surface (fridge, telly, cistern), these awesome bookends might be just the job. Made from metal and available in classy grey or something more vivid, you can prop up your paperbacks with the Gherkin, Battersea Power Station or Ernő Goldfinger's Ladbroke Grove modern masterpiece / monstrosity, the Trellick Tower.

And you know, if you squint, you could imagine your books were 180 metres tall. If you like doing that sort of thing.

Gherkin, Battersea Power Station or Trellick Tower bookends, £18, from Hidden Art Shop.
