From quotes to depictions of specific scenes, to slightly more subtle pieces, find the best Lord of the Rings bookends here!
As a Lord of the Rings fan (and I’m sure any other fans reading this would agree), I can never get enough Tolkien-related merchandise. I obviously have a map of Middle-earth on my wall, as well as various pieces of decor, clothing, and jewelry.
I also enjoy browsing the internet and admiring merchandise such as these LOTR art pieces and these items based on the Middle-earth map, even though I couldn’t possibly buy them all at once. Then there are the books, of course!
But one thing is missing from this otherwise perfect Tolkien shelf (and my home in general): a nice set of Lord of the Rings bookends. I’m not sure how I didn’t realize until now that this was something I desperately needed, but better late than never!
Here are some of the many variations of Lord of the Rings bookends available.
Lord of the Rings Bookends
First and foremost, a LOTR round-up would be incomplete without a representation of the iconic fellowship at the start of their journey, would it? $40
This intricately cut plywood bookend set depicts Gandalf on one side and quotes the poem “All that is Gold Does Not Glitter” on the other. $39
These metal bookends feature Gandalf and Frodo on one side and Mount Doom and Barad-dûr on the other. $79. If you want to change things up, there’s another version of these with Gollum and a Nazgûl instead of the Mordor scene.
Choose between gold and silver for this sturdy concrete dwarf statue bookend, which is sure to hold even the heaviest books on your shelf. $49
I love this piece that puts a humorous spin on Gandalf’s famous quote. $49
It didn’t occur to me until I saw it, but there’s no denying that Argonath is absolutely a top-notch choice for LOTR bookends. $47
For the crafters out there, these bookends actually come as a DIY kit with instructions for you to put together yourself! $58
These bookends feature a couple of lovely quotes. First, a line from the song “The Road Goes Ever On,” which Bilbo sings various versions of in The Hobbit and in The Lord of the Rings. And then, “here at the end of all things,” from Frodo’s loving words to Sam after the destruction of the Ring. $27
This stunning Minas Tirith model is 3D printed in exquisite detail. $75
If I had these bookends, they would just make me replay the epic beacon-lighting scene from the movies in my head over and over again. $36
And here’s Bilbo, with a quote from the end of the saga before he sets off with Gandalf and Frodo to the West. $39
Nonetheless, this last one isn’t technically a bookend, but you could certainly use this adorable hobbit hole miniature planter as one if you wanted to (and I certainly do!). There are two size options, with the small starting at $30.
