I don’t keep a lot of keychains on my keys, but I do keep meaningful or useful ones. I tend to keep them until they physically disappear from being so banged up from daily wear and tear. My current array includes a Wonder Woman mini figurine, a miniature yoga mat, a personal safety device (that’s a nice way to say sharp cat ears), and a bright pink owl. Even though I keep it pretty simple, I love looking at the wide array of literary keychains out there and thinking about the ones I’d like in the future.
The great thing about literary keychains, or really any keychains at all, is that they’re relatively inexpensive and they can get a lot of use and admiration. If you live somewhere you need to lock a door, you have an opportunity to take a moment and remember something or someone you love via the little charm.
Find below a wide array of fun, clever, and cheeky literary keychains. These would make the perfect gifts for you, your bestie, or any other book lover in your life.
